The Victorian Society’s May 1 event at the Fullerton Arboretum has an “Around the World in 80 Days” theme and features scripted entertainment and a four-course tea service on real china ($45 individual, $320 table of eight). Not your usual tea, this one will make you feel as though you’ve left hectic contemporary life far away. To really get in the spirit, bedeck yourself in waistcoats and extravagant tulle-and-feather hats from Rental Bootique ($65 to $95, 714-241-0907, The tea sells out every year, so buy your tickets early.
