Sunday December 13, 2020 2:00-4:00 p.m. PT Virtual Meeting: Jane Austen Birthday Tea

Come celebrate Jane Austen’s birthday at the Jane Austen Society of North America-E. Washington & N. Idaho Region Annual Jane Austen Birthday Tea! This virtual gathering will take place on Sunday, 13 December 2020, 3 days ahead of Jane’s actual birthday, via Zoom! As Jane herself wrote, “One can never have too large a party.” This year has been full of challenges. Though we cannot yet be together in person, we hope this virtual “gathering” will bring some cheer and fellowship. From 2:00-4:00pm, we will chat about our beloved Jane, her novels, play some rounds of Jane Austen Bingo, drink hot tea, and more! We invite you to dress up, find a holiday hat, brew some hot seasonal tea, enjoy some festive tea food, whether you prepared it or bought it, and settle in for some joy and laughter! This event is FREE & open to the public! If you wish to attend, please fill out the Google Form below, so we can email you the Zoom link ahead of the tea. We will be offering optional “Jane Austen Birthday Tea Party” kits for sale (see below to order). These kits will be mailed ahead of the tea, but are not required to attend the tea! To us, they are a way to connect everyone, as we drink the same teas and enjoy our party favors.

WHEN: Sunday, 13 December 2020 2:00-4:00pm PT

Jane Austen Birthday Tea Party Kits

The centerpiece of our Jane Austen Birthday Tea Party Kit is a beautiful hand-made bag that could be used for a reticule or work bag. Each bag is unique and features either a Jane Austen silhouette or a crocheted flower. The color and design you receive will be chosen randomly. The bags will come filled with tea, tea treats (wrapped by the manufacturer), and a few Jane Austen-themed mementos and party favors. Additionally we will enclose two bingo cards for our bingo game at the tea. We are only able to ship to United States addresses. Cost per Tea Kit is $16 and that includes shipping. You may order more than one kit–just indicate in the PayPal directions if they are going to different addresses. You do not need to come to the tea to order a Tea Party Kit. Also, you may come to the tea without ordering a party kit. The last day to order for shipping before the tea is 12/4/20. We have a limited number of the hand-made bags, so order early.
