Now on to the first event posted about on Bella Vita's Blog:

On April 14, 2018 Bella Vita sent out Maree Yard to attend a tea event being held by the Heritage Museum of Orange County. It was a wonderful gathering that had her transported back to early 19th century England. The Jane Austen Tea quickly enchanted her, from the ladies and men dressed in their finest to the vintage pieces meticulously placed to bring early 19th century England to life in modern 21st century Santa Ana, CA.

The day started with Jane Austen's mother, Mrs. Bennet (Linda Midgett), talking about her wonderful daughters and her efforts to get them married to proper gentlemen. While she spoke, the patrons were treated with tea and scones with clotted cream and orange marmalade. After Mrs. Bennet was finished, a group from the Victorian Tea Society delighted everyone with dancing traditional 18th and 19th century dancing. As they danced, the patrons enjoyed wonderful finger foods for a light lunch. The day concluded with dessert and a raffle. All in all it was a delightful affair. The Heritage Museum is having a series of themed teas through out 2018. Bella Vita Vintage Rentals is honored to be partnered with the Heritage Museum of Santa Ana for this and future events.

Side note: if you are getting married at the Heritage Museum, Bella Vita is their go-to vintage wedding rental company. Contact us at bellavitavintagerentals@gmail.com and visit our website at bellavitavintagerentals.com . We look forward to hearing from you!
