With its floor-to-ceiling Christmas tree, festive table settings and Yuletide decorations throughout the historic tea court and mezzanine, the Heathman’s annual Holiday Tea is a perfect respite after shopping with friends, or as a family prelude to the Nutcracker Ballet at the nearby Keller Auditorium.
Adults are $32 per person, and the Peter Rabbit Tea for Little Sippers is $14 per person. The Heathman provides gluten-free, dairy-free and vegan menus available upon request. Seating for parties of seven or more are available daily on the mezzanine level, with direct views of the holiday décor, at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
