Victorian Tea House

Friday, May 31, 2013

Last year my sister, her son's girlfriend and I took mom to a victorian tea house near us for her birthday. We had so much fun we did it again this year, today in fact. Mom turned 85 yesterday so it was good cause to celebrate. She really didn't want to go this morning but I kept talking to her and got her convinced to go. She had a great time and was so happy that we took her.

The tea's featured today were a vanilla and a peach and they were both delicious. Mom is a coffee drinker and she even enjoyed them. They serve 6 courses; fruit cup, spinach salad with fruit and a sesame seed dressing, scones (4 bite size bits of heaven), 2 tea sandwiches, a broccoli and carrot soup (yummy) and strawberry and creme cake. All so yummy.

Our table was in the Peacock Room and there were only 2 other ladies there. So glad we were there because a large group had made reservations at same time (tour bus) so it was quiet in our room. This is the picture over the mantle

The owner has all these hats that you can wear while you are having tea. That is the most fun trying on hats to see which one you like. We each found the perfect hat to match our outfits.
I'm the one in the purple, my sister is in blue and her son's girlfriend is in black.

I love this hat on mom, looks really good and she even liked it too.

So it was another great birthday.

    Going to tea rooms is one of my favorite special treats. I make it a point to check out any new city I travel to, to see if there is one I can visit. No better way to pamper yourself. What a lovely way to celebrate your mother's birthday!
