I have professed my love for my Army family before here on the blog. When push comes to shove my Army family comes through. And it comes through for my friends. A couple of weeks ago we had the opportunity to celebrate Heather and Baby C at a baby shower in Savannah. Leslie Ann, Cassie, and I had fun coming up with a plan for the lady of honor and we decided to hit up the Savannah Tea Room for lunch. Bonus? It was a 4-day weekend so Chris watched Em 😉
The Savannah Tea Room is in downtown Savannah on Broughton Street. From the outside it doesn’t look like much but don’t let it fool you. Inside is a cute and quaint little store and restaurant. All of the lunches came with tea service, soup du jour, scone, and sweets.
The tea special of the day was the Emperor’s Bride. It has a base of Assam and Ceylon teas.Pineapple chunks and dried orange peel are added and it is enhanced with thistle petals and essence of quince and elder (source).
The soup du jour was potato and oh my goodness was it good! It was perfectly creamy with huge potato chunks. For my entry I got a ham and cheese quiche which was also delicious. We all nibbled on the included sweets but saved room for dessert.
After eating we headed outside for some dessert and presents! I had picked up cupcakes from Gigi’s Cupcakes over the weekend. I got us the following: birthday surprise, red velvet, midnight madness, and wedding cake.
Before the “sprinkle” for Heather, we sent out a message to her girlfriends and mom back home to include them in the fun. All of them sent Heather and Baby C a little something special. The girls and I had a ton of fun spoiling Heather with love and gifts 🙂
Overall it was a perfect girls day. The Savannah Tea Room is a wonderful place to lunch with your ladies. I hope to take Em there when she’s a bit older and before we move again because it’s also a little girl’s perfect tea party! I am so thankful and blessed that I have such amazing girlfriends in my life 🙂 I am now officially on “baby watch” for Baby C! She can make her appearance any day now and I am on hospital duty … WEE!!
Have you ever been to a tea room? What’s your favorite kind of tea?
