Afternoon Tea at Lady Camellia's

Georgetown, in Washington, D.C.,  is a very quaint neighborhood, and we were wishing we would have had more time to explore it.  It's so suited for a tea room.

I took so many pictures at the Smithsonian and DAR building, that my camera battery went dead shortly after we arrived at the tea room.  Definitely not a good thing for a blogger! Thankfully my two traveling buddies came to my rescue with their cameras.

Linda, the other member of our 'threesome', was sick in bed for most of the day, but she joined us for tea at Lady Camellia's.

We loved the charming decor of the tea room, which seats about 16.  They just celebrated the first anniversary of its opening in February.

~ Yummy Scones ~

Choice of two Sandwiches: Egg Salad, Smoked Salmon & Creme Fraiche, and Ham, Brie & Apple. 

~ Dessert:  Creme Brulee, Macarons, Moca cream filled Profiterole ~

After our Afternoon Tea, Sandy and I took a taxi to Ford's Theatre for the 7:30 p.m. performance of Freedom's Song, while Linda went back to the hotel to rest.

The museum on the lower level was open an hour before the performance, so we looked around there before going up to the balcony to our seats.

We enjoyed the performance, then took the Metro and shuttle back to our hotel.  The end of day #2 in Washington, D.C.

Today I'm joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday


  1. What a wonderful trip - adventure and with friends! What could be better. I love the tea room and wish them great success. Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. What a fun time with friends, but too bad your one friend was not feeling up to par. The tea room looks lovely and I so enjoyed seeing the inside and the pictures of food and the pretty RA dishes.

  3. What a wonderful outing, Phyllis! The tea room looks fabulous and I would love to have that RA New Country Roses pink teacup to match my teapot! Your tea time treats looks scrumptious too. Thanks so much for sharing with us and joining me for tea. Have a lovely day.


  4. What a charming tea room! I love that cutout in the wall, how pretty, and all of those lovely RA pieces!

  5. Love Lady Camellia's pretty decor and the food looks delish!

  6. I would love to visit this tea room! Such pretty decor and wonderful RA teacups! What a memorable outing with your friends.

  7. What a lovely tea room! Impressed that they use Royal Albert china, too. I definitely would have enjoyed this trip because of all the history, too. (Never been to Ford's Theatre, but wow, what a sense of place it must have!)
