A Visit to a Tea Shop

Pearls
Grace, Emily and I went to our first tea this past weekend. We put on our fancy dresses and pearls for the occasion.

Grace and Emily
We went with several other moms and girls from our Faith Keeper's group and had a nice time visiting with everyone.

Gift Shop
The front of the shop is a little boutique.

Teashop
And the tea room is in the back.

Pink lemonade
Grace had pink lemonade.

Teapot
Emily and I had hot tea.

Scones
The menu was cucumber sandwiches, scones, fruit and lemon bars.

We also did a little shopping at a nearby antique mall. I will show you what we got for show and tell on Friday. Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I hope you have a great start to your week!

What a neat thing to do! I don't even think there is a tea shop near us but that would be a wonderful event to do with my daughter.

SarahF said...

I do love a cup of tea and cake in a tearoom. We have some lovely ones here in England (as I'm sure you can imagine!). Looks like you had a splendid time.

A tea with your daughters sounds so lovely. They are so pretty and look wonderful all dressed up for the tea with mom. Our town had a lovely tea room which served fabulous lunches and I miss it since it went out of business.

So beautiful! I look forward to when Elle is a little older to do that with her!

I'm so jealous of your sunny weather ... we are getting hit by yet another snow storm this week - I am hoping it is the LAST! :-D

What fun, I love going to tea! There was this really nice tea room in Savannah, Ga, that my Mom and sisters went to it was wonderful!

What a lovely outing for you and your two daughters.
I was so sad when the local tea house closed because the owner decided to undertake another venture. But I'll always remember taking my mother there for tea and scones.

HI Kelli! The girls look like such little ladies. I bet Mom was all dolled up too. I was wondering what did the "boys" do when the girls were out together?

Love, Debbi

Wow, that looks like so much fun. Can't wait until my daughter is old enough to do something like that. I loved the first picture so much, just beatiful.

Barbara H. said...

Hi Kelli, looks like a great outing! Definitely something my daughter and I should try, as we have a very nice tea room locally. Thanks - maybe your post will help motivate Kali for me :O).

Susan B said...

How fun! It looks like you had a good time. Your daughters look so prety in their dresses. I've never been to a tea shop. Hopefully someday! Have a lovely week!

Grace & Emily are beauitful girls. How fun to have a tea with them, and at such a cute place. I love "Tea,tang,& twist", a recipe that my mama made. Looks sunny where you are, but it's cold cold cold here in Kentucky.
Have a great day,
Linda from Kindlelight Blessings

Kelli:

Now I feel so deprived that I live in the sticks. I am going to look in the phone book of a not so far big city and see if there is a tea room. My mom and grandma used to take me to The Robin Hood Inn when I was little where we had tea and girly food. Your girls look so sweet.

Have a Wonderful Day

Lady Laura said...

What a lovely outing for you and your girls. They look beauiful in all their finery.

My niece's HighSchool Advanced Placement Teacher took her student's to an authentic HIGH TEA upon her retirement. She said every girl should experience a tea at least once in her life. And she was right!

TJ said...

Sounds and looks like fun!

I was 20 something when I went to my first real tea. Great experience for the girls!

Jennifer said...

You just described my perfect day...a new found tea room (with a little boutique) and a nearby antique shop..shared with my daughter and friend!! What a fun day!

Tina Leigh said...

Oh I am so jealous! I have been thinking about going to one in Savannah around St. Patty's day. I have been working with an English doc that loves TEA & CRUMPETS WITH CLOTTED CREAM! I am dying to try some. If I go around St. Patty's day..the fountains in old Savannah will be green! Cool huh!

Barbara said...

Oh that looks so fun, I hope you all had a blast.

teachermomof2 said...

How fun! It looks like a great time.

A Hint of Home said...

It's so much fun to do that with your girls. They looked so pretty all dressed. Looks like a fun place to go.

Love Bears All Things said...

Oh what a lovely idea. I talked about taking my granddaughter to a tea room when I lived far away. I think I'll try to do that during one of the school breaks. We'll put on our finery and go to Emma's. I can't wait.

Sherri S said...

letters to elijah said...

Love a good tea shop! It's where a woman can feel like a lady!

Heather said...

Oh how lovely. Your girls look so cute. You have inspired me. I may have to go visit there with my little girl. She may be a little young but it would be a good reason to get dressed up. Thank you for the idea!!!!

Lady Katherine said...

I love your tea with the girls! I want a lemon bar! I am sure you know how to make them, do they taste like a lemon pie? I want a recipe! No one in my family likes lemon pastry, but they eat lemons! I don't eat lemons, but love the pies! The lemon bar looks so yummy!

Sara said...

Your girls are charming in pink, and what a special treat to enjoy tea and cakes with other moms and daughters. I would have loved that when I was a girl too.

Jessica said...

Wow, I love the girls' dresses - everyone looked beautiful. I bet you had lots of fun dressing up!

Cathy said...

Your sweet girls look so pretty. I know you all had a wonderful time.

PEA said...

The girls looked just beautiful and oh how I wish I could have gone with all of you to that darling tea shop! I would have been oohing and aahing over everything! lol xoxo

Kelly said...

What fun, Kel! I haven't been to a tea shoppe in a long time! I think that my last time was my best friend's baby shower that we threw...and her Elijah will be five this year. I've long overdue for a visit. ;o) Maybe Grace and I will try a local one out in the next few weeks - great way to get past the winter doldrums! (I'd much rather be in TX right now, LOL!)
