As promised, day 217 of 365 Things To Do in Pasadena takes us back to the Pasadena Museum of History for their Gilded Holidays Decorating & Tea Tour.
Take a step back in time and visit the Victorian and Edwardian style holiday decor on display at the museum. Return to the days of old and explore the wonder of this era. A trained docent will lead you through this captivating holiday exhibition.
The Pasadena Patron exhibit shares stories of long ago holidays celebrations- Pasadena Style! It also showcases the gilded details and decorating style of the 1900’s. Which is where the traditions of so many of our cherished holiday decorations originated.
Be sure to complete the festive afternoon with a visit to the nearby Chado Tea Room.
The Chado Tea Room is located at 79 N. Raymond Ave. in Pasadena.
Here you’ll be nestled in a serene, soothing setting while sipping on delightful afternoon tea.
