I am ashamed to say that this review has been a long time coming! Here it is October 8th and I threw my daughter's baby shower at Tranquilitea on June 22nd. Let me just say, that it was so beautiful and special, that I have not ever thought for a moment that I would not be sitting here writing this glowing review. I wanted so many people to be able to attend this shower that the owner Marjory allowed for me to reserve the lovely little tea shoppe for both the morning and the afternoon! We actually had two back to back showers and it was really fun. All of my guests were entranced by the quaint and serene beauty of Tranquilitea. None of them had ever been to a tea cottage before and they were all so amazed at every aspect of the experience. The tasty and soothing teas, the delicious and delectable traditional food, the delightful ambience was delicate and feminine and was the perfect place for our baby shower. It would be equally wonderful as a venue for a bridal shower, a lady's retirement party, and I have peeked in the door once when there have been little girls, all dressed up in their finery, celibrating a fancy birthday! I live and hour and a half away from Tranquilitea and my guests all wondered why I would make them travel so far, I'm sure, but when they had the experience they understood completely! Marjory is a doll, and so is her Lady helper Marisa. They are long time friends and both come from Scotland. I sent decorations in the mail to be set under the glass table tops and they even did that for me ahead of time before they set the breath taking tables. People are still mentioning the wonderful time they had and we all will be back!
