Previous Silver Teas

What is a Silver Tea? Historically, the traditional Silver Tea had its roots in the proper English tea, often held in a church and accompanied by a “silver collection.” The silver collection referred to the silver coins the guests placed in a container near the entrance. This was usually a particularly attractive silver bowl into which had been placed the largest available silver coin, with the hope that it would attract more of its kind. Donations were used to further the charitable causes of the host.

Times have changed. Coins are no longer silver, but Silver Teas continue as a gracious means of funding worthy projects. Proceeds from our annual Silver Tea benefit The Guild’s graduate scholarships at Houston Baptist University.

We sincerely appreciate the hospitality of those who have graciously opened their homes for our Silver Tea. To see the photographs of these lovely events, please click on the host's name.
