Holiday Tea

This year's Holiday Tea & Fashion Show celebrates the Sounds of the Season on Friday, December 3, 2021! The event is a major fundraiser for the General Lew Wallace Study & Museum and will be hosted at the Elston Homestead in 2021. Visitors may attend the holiday event any time between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m.

The impressive Elston Homestead, located on Pike Street, was the childhood home of Susan Elston Wallace. It is now owned by Wabash College. Each year, designers from Milligan's Flowers & Gifts provide elaborate holiday decorations for the Tea.

A spotlight feature of the event is an interactive fashion show featuring local models wearing fashions from local boutique heathcliff. The fashion show will begin at 3:30.

In addition, visitors will win door prizes throughout the afternoon. All ticket-holders are automatically entered in the drawing. Attendees need not be present to win. Door prizes will be distributed between 4:00-6:00 p.m.

Refreshments include tea and coffee, served with sweet and savory treats. Special thanks go to Bon Appétit and tea committee members for the preparation and festive presentation of the food and drink.

Another highlight of the afternoon will be live holiday music by the T-Tones, a men’s vocal ensemble from Wabash College, back by popular demand.
