It’s coming up on Gingerbread Tea Time in the north Oregon coast town of Seaside.

The Seaside History Museum and its Butterfield Cottage have elves that are furiously preparing for the winter holidays with its annual Gingerbread Tea. Trees, wreaths and pine garlands decorate every room of Seaside’s very own authentic Victorian cottage.

Lovers, families and friends having been enjoying Gingerbread Tea at the Butterfield Cottage every holiday season for more than thirty years. Sharing a cozy relaxing afternoon while enjoying holiday music and snack has become the holiday tradition for many residents as well as visitors returning to the north Oregon coast.

This festival begins November 30th (Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend) and then runs weekly on December 7, December 15 and December 21.

Homemade gingerbread cake, baked by the museum “grandmothers” is served with fresh whipped cream along with a choice of hot tea, cocoa or hot spiced cider. Children can have a homemade old-fashioned gingerbread men cookie – and candy canes for all.

What is a tea party without music? Shirley Yates will be singing and playing keyboard on November 30 and December 7. The North Coast Ukulele Strummers will play and sing on December 14 while the Seaside Strummers will entertain on December 21.

Admission is $5 per person. Tickets for the annual holiday raffle are also available at each tea or at the Museum for $1 each or 6 for $5. A colorful underwater-theme quilted collage wall hanging, local gift certificates and a large decorated poinsettia from Mimi’s Florist are among the prizes. Winning tickets will be pulled at 4 pm on December 21st.
