We had my sister's bridal shower at The New Leaf Tea Room this past weekend. None of the bridesmaids live locally, and it was really important to us that the planning be easily done over the phone. I spoke to Phyllis often, and she was always helpful, answering any of my questions and offering suggestions from her experience of having planned other showers and special events. I was not able to visit the venue before the shower, and was pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it was. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. Each guest was able to pick their own personal tea from a list of over 30 teas. They also each got their own 3-tiered tray of food: scone and fruit, sandwiches (shrimp salad croissant was amazing!), and desserts (choc covered strawberry and cakes). Most of the guests even had to ask for to-go boxes. I had high expectations for my sister's shower and Phyllis and The New Leaf Tea Room did a wonderful job preparing for a beautiful shower. They were reasonably priced and were so easy to work with, even long distance. I definitely recommend The New Leaf Tea Room to anyone who is interested in an afternoon tea or planning a special event at a tea room. Phyllis and her team were top notch.
