Devonshire tea afternoon for puppy and you
The first time I ever saw a dog at a table was in a cafe in Switzerland many years ago. It was a full sized poodle and I said to my friend, "I'm going to have a poodle one day". It was a quaint way to be introduced to my future breed of pooch.
On Sunday 26th August 2018, Kingston House in Kingston Park, South Australia is hosting "Puppy Tea Paw-ty" Party from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. The event is a celebration of the National Dog Day with Devonshire tea, puppy party food, stalls and activities. Gluten free options are available.
Kingston House is the oldest building in the Holdfast Bay Council district and is set on a three-acre reserve which overlooks the coast. By name, it was the family home of the Kingston Family who were influential in the founding of the South Australian colony. The original home consisted of three rooms of which the pre-fabricated timber walls were shipped out from England. A verandah was built around the structure. After a few owners, the South Australian State Government purchased the property in 1920 and restored it.
