Join Salem Witches Leanne Marrama and Heather MacDonald for a 3-course High Tea in grand Victorian tradition. Don your finest mourning attire and celebrate the lives of your dearly departed as you share stories of your loved ones who have passed, add photos and mementos to our Salem Witches’ Book of the Dead, enjoy live music and poetry, and receive messages in the tea leaves!
Hearken back to the lush and extravagant mourning traditions of the Victorian era, when widows wore black dresses for years and the hair of the dead was carried in cherished mourning lockets, when music filled the air with sweet sorrow as the resident bards of the long black veil recited odes to the somber beauty of Death’s final waltz. This venerable ritual comes to life at the Mourning Tea in Salem.
What to bringAt least one photo of your loved one(s). A single page, handwritten or printed out, containing whatever you would like to say about your loved one(s). If you would like a memory of your loved one to be placed into the Book, the photo and text combined should not exceed 8.5 x 11 inches. We will also have some supplies on hand for those who become inspired during the tea.
The most important ingredients of the Mourning Tea is the love that you bring for those who have passed on in your life. The memories you share will keep your departed loved ones alive in your hearts, and strengthen your connection to their spirits that still live on!
