When I found out that my daughter was going to have a baby, I wanted to throw her a very special shower. I thought a tea would be nice, and it was! I decided to use Tea with Friends because of several reasons. First, I read the great reviews they have on Teamap, and two, a couple of my friends have been to tea's that they have done and only had good things to say. I shopped around and found that the idea of having tea in my home in a relaxed and not rushed setting was more appealing than 2 hours in a crowded tea room. The process began with JoAnn, the owner of Tea with Friends, coming to my house for a consultation. She was very nice and had a lot of great ideas on how to make my party a sucess. The day of the party she arrived with a van ful of tote boxes and transformed my living room and dining room into a beautiful tea room. Her staff were very professional and kind and knew just what to do. Every step was done with perfection from the fresh flowers to the dessert. The cheesecake we had at the end of our tea was an amazing suprise! It had and hand made lacy chocolate sculpture and was served with fresh raspberries. All of my guests were was fully delighted with the tea, food and service. This is an awsom little business whick JoAnn admits she 'does it because she loves it' !! Bravo! AAAAAA+ Marvo!
