What is your Payment and Cancellation Policy for Pardee Home Teas?

Payments must be made by check payable to the Pardee Historic Home Museum, Inc. or by credit card within two weeks after making the reservation. Because the operation of PHM teas is done entirely by volunteers who purchase and donate the ingredients and because we do not want to turn away guests that we otherwise might have welcomed on the scheduled date, no refund will be made unless the event is cancelled at least two weeks in advance. Nonpayment by the expected date will be interpreted as a cancellation; however, a reminder will be sent giving you an additional 5 days to make your payment.

For teas reserved 3 or more months in advance, a non-refundable deposit of $10 per guest is required within two weeks of confirming the reservation. A final payment is due 6 weeks prior to your tea date.
