Summer Fun #6 ~ Time for Tea

This the last post from our recent beach getaway.  Our last day at the beach was rainy so while the boys enjoyed playing indoor putt-putt and laser tag, the girls enjoyed lunch at a local tea room and a little shopping at a couple of beach and antique thrift shops.  We went to this tea room a couple of years ago to celebrate Emma's birthday, but my camera battery had died then so I couldn't get pictures.  I made sure to take some pictures this time.  {Natasha, I especially thought of you and wanted to share the pictures with you.}  Our lunch was so yummy as we enjoyed cucumber and other little sandwiches, dainty petit fours, fruit, and other sweet treats.  The tea was definitely the yummiest part of the fare though.  I had a very refreshing and yummy vanilla green tea, and I finished my entire pot of tea.  Yes, I also thought of my sweet little girl on this trip and how much she would have loved this place when she was older.  I hope she enjoyed watching her cousins drinking tea and playing dress up!

Some of the pretty tables in the tea room.  When we arrived, there weren't any other patrons there, but it began filling up after we arrived.

Emma looked very British and did a great British accent when she asked, "May I have a spot of tea?"  Haha!

  1. Oh. My. Goodness. Add that place to the list of ones we will go to when I come to visit you :) That place looks amazing and that food is making me hungry. And those hats... Just so you know I will be wearing one of them when we go there :)

    And I just know Miss Mattie was with you all in spirit.

    1. Oh yes, tea time will be a must! We'll hit the beach, the mountains, Charleston, and places where you can enjoy good southern food! It will be amazing! :-) I did wear a hat that Emma brought me, but it was so big that it kept covering my eyes. Ha! Yes, Mattie will always be with us in my heart!

  2. What a cool place! The food looks so yummy! I think the hats are super cute too! Little Cate drinking her tea is just adorable. I'm sure sweet Mattie was watching with a big smile.

    1. I just think tea parties are one of the cutest parts of having little girls. I gave my oldest niece her first tea set for her first Christmas present so I was pretty excited for her to start using it. Having a tea party with Mattie will be a must when we meet again! ;-)
