When Christmas approaches, it's gingerbread tea time on Saturday afternoons at the Victorian Butterfield Cottage in Seaside.

Starting November 30, the Seaside Museum and Historical Society will host its annual holiday Gingerbread Tea at the Victorian Butterfield Cottage. Gingerbread Tea is from 1-4pm and continues every Saturday afternoon until December 21.

The tea party has become a holiday tradition for locals and visitors. For more than 30 years the museum has served a holiday tea gathering at the historic Victorian cottage.

Festive trees, garlands and wreaths grace every room throughout the historic Seaside cottage and local talents performing holiday music adds to the merriment. Homemade gingerbread cake will be served with whipped cream along with hot tea, cocoa or hot spiced cider.

Admission is $5 per person. Tea party times are 1-4pm on Saturday; November 30, December 7, December 15 and December 21. The Butterfield Cottage is located at 570 Necanicum Drive in Seaside. For more information call the museum at (503) 738-7065
