Lovers, families and friends having been enjoying Gingerbread Tea at the Butterfield Cottage, hosted by the Seaside Museum & Historical Society, every holiday season for the past thirty years. Sharing a cozy relaxing afternoon while being entertained by live holiday music has become THE holiday tradition for many residents as well as visitors returning from far and wide.
Musicians this year include the Northcoast Ukulele Strummers, Shirley Smith-Yates and Linda Nielsen, a perennially popular performer at the Museum’s July 4th Old Fashioned Social. Homemade gingerbread topped with whipped cream, hot cocoa, spiced cider and a variety of teas will be served. No reservation is necessary.
In addition, raffle tickets, at $1 each or 8 for $5. Items include wall art provided by Tipton’s, a non-edible gingerbread house from Dough Dough Bakery and perennial favorite, a large holiday poinsettia from Mimi’s Flowers. A special item this year is an attractive appliqued holiday quilt. Winners need not be present to win. Safeway also contributes to the event.
