washingtonDC_tudorplace_fairy-teaIt’s never to early to introduce youngsters to the magic of horticulture. Road Trips Gardeners traveling with their families along the Mid-Atlantic Coast this month, should consider scheduling a stop at Fairies in the Garden, a “tea and treats” event at Tudor Place Historic House and Garden, 1644 31st Street NW, Washington D.C. (map).

It’s set for 1 to 2:30 p.m. July 20, 2013. Cost is $25 for children and $10 for adults.

Bring your favorite Tinkerbell to dress up in magical fairy costumes, complete with tutus, wands, and wings. Children select their outfits from the fairy wardrobe provided, and then assemble (with accompanying grown-ups) for tea and desserts served by a costumed interpreter who will show and tell all about the favored drink of early America. Next, all will tour Tudor Place’s enchanting gardens in search of fairy traces and hiding places before making a special period craft to take home.
