                      Join Our Annual            ESU Queen’s Birthday Tea Party

All ESU Members and Friends of ESU are cordially invited to attend one of our biggest social gatherings of the year—our annual Queen's Tea. Not only will we be celebrating HRH Queen Elizabeth II's 91st birthday but we will also celebrate the Queen and Prince Phillip's 70th wedding anniversary this year. This will be an ESU Tea Party Fit for a Queen!

Our ESU annual tea parties are very popular and have sold out for the last five years and we will have two seatings to accommodate all who want to attend.

Both ESU teas will include a variety of tea sandwiches, sweets, Brenda's signature scones, Mock Devonshire cream, fine fruit butter or fruit jams and premium tea.  Brenda Hedrick, the owner and proprietress of Anna Marie's Teas proudly proclaims, "This is not just any tea party--our tea experiences are delightfully extravagant!" This is a special occasion not to be missed!

The English teas will be held in the Bohnet House in Liberty, Mo., which is a stately 3-story, 5,000 square foot home built in 1913. The house boasts Frank Lloyd Wright details--oak trim, 3 fireplaces and large open spaces. Its large wraparound porch and period American, French and English antique furnishings create the perfect setting for tea parties--served on a special collection of china and silver.

Our teas will include a special champagne toast to HRH Queen Elizabeth II's 91st birthday and we will again have our popular Trivia Quiz with a selection of fun prizes as well as some special door prizes.
