Teacup Tuesday

Hello, and welcome to another Teacup Tuesday! A few weeks ago, my friend and I went to a Victorian tea room, called The New Leaf. The pictures didn't come out as vivid as I had hoped. This is what greeted us when we walked through the door. (click on pics to enlarge)We were directed to go over to this area, to select a hat for our tea. They had so many pretty ones to choose from. They even had small hats for little girls. I selected a pink one of course.


My friend and I both ordered the tea sandwiches, and selected treats. It was served on this cute little tray. On the left were 6 kinds of sandwiches, like chicken salad, and cucumber. There was a cupcake cup filled with different fruits. We also each received a scone, with raspberry jelly, and clotted cream. Ummmmm, yummy! Then, came the desserts. Little cakes, and a chocolate covered strawberry.
The china was white trimmed in gold. It looked very elegant on the table. Our waitresses were sweet young ladies, wearing filigree aprons. I chose an orange cranberry tea.
This was a little section of all kinds of special tea things for sale.
The cups were all so pretty, and I love how they displayed them. I didn't buy one, because I already have too many!
Everything was so pretty! It was all decorated for spring!


This was another part of a dining area. I love the high windows.

Love these beautiful high ceilings too! The colors on the walls, were a very pale green. The curtains made them pop.
I hope you enjoyed my tour of this lovely tearoom. Afterwards, we did some antiquing! We had a lovely day! Thanks for coming by!

Oh how fun that would be. I love going to tearooms although I don't get to do that to often myself. I could spend hours in there looking at all the beautiful things they have displayed, and of course sipping some nice hot tea and eating some delishous food.

Have a great week!!

Hello Debbie,
What a wonderful place to visit and have tea! I would have loved to don a hat! Your goodies looked delicious and looking around at all that you shared with us, I would have been hard pressed not to purchase something. I love tea rooms; having tea as much as looking at all the tea things! I am looking forward to when my favourite spot opens for the Summer. Thank you for stopping by and having tea with me. It's been a pleasure!

Blessings,
Sandi

I have a tea party in my home for Valentine's Day each year. I invite about 12 and they all pick out a hat to wear from my vintage hat collection (I don't have nearly as many as the tea room you visited). The hats just seam to bring everyone together. We love it!

Enjoyed your blog!
