We arrive at 10 a.m. at the Winterthur Museum, nestled in the heart of Delaware’s beautiful Brandywine Valley. It is known for its magnificent collection of American decorative arts with items displayed throughout Francis du Pont’s former home and showcased in permanent and rotating gallery spaces. We are fortunate to have the opportunity to view the Anne Lowe exhibit, who designed the wedding dress worn by Jacqueline Bouvier when she married John F. Kennedy in 1953. This is the largest exhibition of her work to date, featuring 40 iconic gowns, many that have never been on public display and will illuminate her evolution as a designer from the 1920s to the 1960s.
We arrive at 1:30 p.m. at Wee Fancy Tea, run by a mother-daughter team with roots in Yorkshire, England. Committed to serving an English-style tea, everything is made fresh. We will be indulged with a Queen’s Tea that includes four tea sandwiches (roast beef, chicken salad, cucumber and egg salad); four different dessert scones with Devonshire cream and homemade preserves; and unlimited tea.
