Classes for April include a Girl’s Night Out: Easy Appetizers and Chocolates with wine tasting, and a class on easy and impressive pastry techniques. Classes are demonstration-style, so you get to relax and watch us cook and then enjoy the foods we prepare, so come hungry! It’s a fun evening with a warm, friendly folks, good food and recipes to take home. COOKING CLASSES
We have a great selection of vintage/antique dishes, silverware, glassware and linens available to rent for special events. We offer English bone china and American Farmhouse china, in both traditional matched sets and mismatched groupings. Share your ideas with us and we can help you style the event of your dreams.

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.
We are back from the winter markets and have a great selection of cute tops and dresses, jewelry and handbags. Our gift collections this spring are Frannie’s Farmhouse, Spring Garden, Burlap Bunnies, and A Provence Farmyard. Naturally, we have lots of teacups, and other lovely teaware as well.
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 lunch and tea and our pastry chef will be tempting guests with some of her sweet treats.
