It has been an absolute pleasure pulling together all the little pieces needed to make the Afternoon Tea come alive. I get a chance to do all the things I love: cook, shop, taste, design, and make people happy. October 29th was the first day that I had paying customers and let me tell you, that was the greatest feeling ever. 

Eight years ago, when I closed my store to the economic downturn, I didn't imagine that I would ever be able to get back to a place where I can be making money doing what I love. It sounds extreme, but that is how it felt.

Now that everything is in order, the venue is gorgeous, the food is vetted, the teas are fabulous-all I need to do is promote. It's a scary thing to put myself out there again, but I'm 100% confident that this is going to be fabulous. 

Hopefully soon, we can start doing live music! All suggestions are welcomed. :)
