did someone say tea party?
After moving into The Maples, Jan feared she had left behind her exciting life as an event planner and purveyor of fine teas. When her daughter mentioned to the Campus staff that her mother missed the joy of her shop and hosting tea parties, they came up with an exciting surprise. Dining Services created tasty savories and a local tea merchant provided a presentation on tea and tea service, as Jan became the unwitting hostess of a wonderful afternoon tea party for all the ladies of The Maples. The event was made even more special with Jan’s own china nestled among the lavishly decorated tables. She hasn’t stopped smiling since!
