IN HISTORIC HERBERT WILLIAMS HOUSE
The Secret Garden is located in a beautiful Victorian Mansion in Sumner, WA. The charm of the original Queen Anne and Italianate architecture provides an elegant, yet warm ambiance in which to enjoy a scrumptious lunch or a traditional English-style Tea Set served on a 3-tier stand. Our gift shop is stocked with tea-time treasures and a variety of delightful gifts, fanciful jewelry and clothing, and charming accents for your home.
You can make reservations up to 45 days in advance!
We implemented some menu changes at the beginning of the year.
Celebrate your mom with our Mother’s Day Tea!
This year’s Mother’s Day tea is a five course garden-themed tea, that includes sangria or sparkling cider. We begin taking reservations for this event on March 15th. Call early for the best availability. As always, this is a ticketed event; you purchase your tickets at the time of making a reservation. This special tea set is the only thing we serve that weekend, and tables sell out every year, so plan early if you’d like to come.
The menu is posted on our special events page.
Please call us to purchase your tickets at 253-826-4479! SPECIAL EVENTS
It may still be a wee bit chilly at times, but spring has arrived in our gift shop. Our new line of table linens by April Cornell are the perfect way to add a fresh look to your table. We have a couple of new greeting card lines: Kimberly Shaw graphics are darling little tea cup cards with a tea bag cleverly tucked into the cup and Sara Miller London cards are fun, girly designs. We are also making room for new lines by clearancing all of our clothing at 50% off! Come by to take a look, and follow us on Facebook for all the latest news!
Enjoy a fun afternoon exploring booths set up by vintage, antique and upcycled home décor dealers and select artisans at a “french flea market” inspired vintage market in our garden. We will be setting up a booth serving tea and scones and some other lovely snacks and sweet treats.
