Gingerbread Christmas Tea
at the Butterfield Cottage,
Seaside, Oregon

Seaside's Christmas Tradition Continues


The Seaside Museum and Historical Society will again host Gingerbread Tea at the Butterfield Cottage. Our lovely Victorian beach cottage is transformed into a Christmas jewel and will be open on Saturdays from November 29 through December 20. Guests are served fresh gingerbread with whipped cream or a homemade gingerbread cookie and a hot drink, either tea, hot chocolate or hot cider. Exquisite gingerbread houses and other donated Christmas items are raffled off.

For his sixth season, we are delighted to again welcome our musician and friend, Jeff Blanche. He provides true Christmas spirit with his music on a variety of instruments. Dr. Blanche, as well as the hostesses, volunteer their time to keep this lovey Seaside tradition alive. Please join us for a leisurely holiday afternoon visiting with other guests and joining in on the caroling.

Saturdays, Nov. 29,  Dec. 6, 13, 20, 2014
1-4 pm
Adult $5.00. Child 12 and under $3.00
