Enjoy a lovely private country Victorian tea party in a homey setting at Tea For You. You will be pampered as you sit at lace-covered tables, where you will be served delicious food on crystal plates and freshly brewed tea in fine china tea cups. In addition to being served a delightful selection of food and tea, you will be given a brief presentation on tea etiquette and the history of teas. We can accommodate tea parties of up to 18 guests. However, a minimum of 8 guests is required to schedule a tea party. A country Victorian tea party can be booked for any occasion such as a birthday party, bridesmaids tea, mother/daughter tea, Bible study groups, Red Hat Society, book clubs, garden clubs, or any other occasion you can think of. We also offer specialty tea parties such as Sweetheart (February), Christmas (end of November through mid December), and Candlelight (October through March). We look forward to the opportunity to serve you!

      Everything was wonderful. From the moment our Hostess and her family met us at the door until we left over 3 hours later, it was so very enjoyable. They nmade you feel so very welcome. She waits for you to arrive before she starts to brew the teas so that they will be at the peak of perfection when she serves them. Her 2 sons entertained us with magic while the first pots were brewing There was Tomato Basil Soup, followed by Fresh Fruit Cup. Then we had two kinds of scones with clotted cream and jam. There were three kinds of finger sandwiches served - ham and granny smith apple slices on raison bread, cucumber and cream cheese on minature wheat bread squares and I believe the other was curried chicken and golden raisons. The luncheon teas were Black Currant and Dahjarling (I think that is how it's spelled) Then we took a short break to let our lunch settle a bit and we had 'Show and Tell' with the items that everyone had brought in. It was very interesting to see all of them and hear the many different stories. For dessert, we had poppy seed cake, lemon squares on a shortbread crust and those delicious 7 layer bars (with Coconut, Chocolate Chips nuts, etc). She served peach apricot tea with our dessert. Our Hostess ended the lovely afternoon with a short program on the origin of Tea Parties and the different kinds of Tea. It was a fantastic day. My friends and I wre looking forward to attending another 'Tea For You' Party this Fall and hopefully in the future also.

      What an enjoyable day this was. A beautiful home and table was ready for our red hat group upon arrival. Each new course was better than the last, with so much food! We were entertained by two young men doing magic tricks and playing the piano and violin and educated on the history of tea and the ediquette of taking tea.

      The house was elegant, the hostess was gracious, the food was yummy (and soooo much of it!) and her children charmed us. You could not ask for a more wonderful way to spend time with your friends. We will be sure to return again and again to try new savories.

      This is my first expereince with Tea for You. I was very impressed with the beautiful placesettings and the elegance of the home. The tea is served in the home. The house is elegantly decorated and there are a lot of little details that just tie it all in, from the pearls and lace gloves draped on a book, to the statues of ladies in victorian dress. I attended with my 2 young daughters and they were treated just as well as the older guests. It is an enjoyable experience and one I would recommend.

      I can't remember when I have spent such a delightful afternoon as I did yesterday at a tea at Tea for Two. Probably the best $19.50 I have spent in years. The value was unbelievable. Food not only tasteful but so artfully presented. The service, ambiance, and participation of Debbie's two young sons and husband were added treats. I would give it six stars on a one to five star rating. Cynthia Sparkes 5.25.08

      I attended Tea For You with my red hat group and was pleasantly pleased. I can't say enouogh about the food the atmosphere, the pleasant friendly host, and especially the overall presentation.

      My Red Hat group had a delightful afternoon. We were so warmly greeted.Then we were entertained by her two young sons with magic tricks. They also helped their Mom with serving all the delicious food. We enjoyed having a lovely place to visit with our fellow red hatters & learning more about the history of tea & the correct ways of enjoying it.Thanks for a truly lovely day.
