FINE CHINA, crisp linens, dainty sandwiches and delicious cakes are some of the tea-time accouterment adding ambience to a special party coming to Linthicum.
The Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights is presenting an "Angelic Tea Party" and a vintage fashion show April 10 at St. John Lutheran Church, 300 W. Maple Road, Linthicum. There will be two seatings, 11 a.m. and 2: 30 p.m. Tables may be reserved.
Club members have collected clothing older than the century and as recent as World War II from members and friends for what should be a nostalgic show.
The oldest dress is from 1890. There also will be a black, Paris-made flapper dress with jet beads, a 1920s cream and peach organdy flapper dress with hand-painted roses and a rose evening gown with a black velvet cape from the 1940s. Military nurses' uniforms from World War I and World War II also will be modeled.
In addition, angel memorabilia, angel and Victorian crafts, tea baskets and herbal gifts will be on sale.
Shirley Beck and Celeste Riddle are co-chairing the event. The profits will go to the club's charitable contributions in the community.
The Woman's Club of Linthicum Heights is a member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs.
Tickets are $10 a person. To reserve tickets: Jane Bond, 410-859-0613.
