Annual Christmas Tea with my friend Candy..

Every year my good friend Candy and I go to tea for Christmas.  We thought we would try a new place this year in Mesa.  When we walked in we were pleasantly surprised at how cute the tearoom was.  Definately Victorian and very quaint.




Has anyone see a sugar scuttle like this?  It is a bee.....




The table was set with a complete set of these beautiful dishes.
This was our sandwich tray...which looked beautiful.
Unfortunately that was as good as it got.  The meal was not that good and we could not get a pot of hot tea to save our life.  I didn't even bother with the sad little desserts. 
I was very sad as tearooms are becoming few and far between and I hoped that this would be great.
We did exchange Christmas presents.  I will show you another time what an absolutely fabulous, check off my wish list, gift Candy gave me.
This was the bow....isn't it cute with the sweet doilies?
We smiled for the camera even though we didn't really want to pay for the food!!
We already decided....we are going to the Phoenician next year!  We hear that is fabulous!

HI Ceekay! Oh, I'm so sorry the food and the tea room wasn't good. It looks like a very sweet place. Maybe you should write them a note and tell them how disappointed you were. Well, you and Candy look beautiful! I love the doily bow idea!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi Ceekay! Oh, DD and I have had the same experience with a little place in Alamogordo, NM. It was cute enough... decor wise. And the tea was good but that was about it. Everything on the sampler that we ordered looked like it came from Sam's/Cosco and was merely reheated or microwaved... NOT even baked. We were truly disappointed. So we have our own "tea parties."

At least your dear friend Candy made for good company and conversation, yes?

Merry Christmas,
Karen
