Tea with Ainee sharing of this Centennial Afternoon Tea at the Fairmont Palliser

Tea with Ainee


Teatime with ainee is honoring this upcoming Centennial Afternoon Tea at The Fairmont Palliser in Calgary Canada. It is an FYI!

Afternoon Tea Dancing in the Streets

This Sunday, the castle-like hotel is hosting a party that will literally stop traffic along 9 Avenue S.W. The Fairmont Palliser’s Centennial Afternoon Tea Dance takes place Sunday, June 15 between 2 and 4 p.m.  There will be big bands and swing dancing in the street. Pastries will be given out and tea will be served. It’s an ode to the glory days of the Palliser’s afternoon tea dances.

The mid-afternoon parties are a product of the Victorian era that carried through the early 20th century when live orchestras would play and well-dressed guests would dance and snack into the early evening.

Tea dances were a way to cut costs — buffet-style afternoon parties with tea was much less expensive than a sit-down supper. The Fairmont Palliser did hold supper dances including the Cowboy Ball, held during the first week of the Calgary Stampede between 1924 and 1939, which was so popular that dancers overflowed the lobby onto the street.

About seule771

I have done and tried some things and now I simply want to enjoy and accept myself as I am; with all of my quirkiness of ways. Favorite quote: “Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind.” ― Bernard M. Baruch ------------------------- Self-published author with specialty in writing poetry and a book on fashion. Currently researching the social aspect of tea drinking in America; specifically New England. I am not employed, I enjoy drinking tea and I thought it would make for a good book project. I am finding it very difficult since so much is already written on this subject. I have enjoyed what I have learned and encountered during my tea hiatus of sort. At times, I am overtaken by this obsession: to consume tea like there is no tomorrow. I started blogging several years now on blogspot as (http://seule771.blogspot.com) and it is my randomizing thoughts, views of things dear or bothersome to me. I want to have income but nothing I do is noticed or of worth. I would like to change this aspect of my life by having and keeping the income; in coming or forth coming. My tea blog is several years old as well: https://seule771.wordpress.com I enjoy the teas I sample and look forward to discussing them on my blog. As well as the books I chose to review along side tea drinking. Thank you for reading, and for viewing of this blog! https://www.amazon.com/author/aineebeland on Pinterest: www.pinterest.com/seule771
