Thank you Mary!! My mother and closest girlfriends just threw me a bridal shower this past weekend. The house is a lovely intimate setting for a girlfriends gathering or a special occasion. There is a sitting room upstairs for guests to gather that is warm and cozy. The variety of teas are overwhelming but Mary helped us narrow down the choices to two flavors I think everyone enjoyed. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of food offered...it's not just the typical tea sandwiches and scones and it was tasty. I love afternoon tea and would recommend The Painted Tea Cup for a special occasion where you can relax amongst friends and not feel the stuffiness of a high end hotel tea. The pricing is also very reasonable when compared to other afternoon teas.
