A few weeks ago, a lady from my church told me about a place in Washington, MI where she went for a friend's birthday tea. She gave the event [food and presentation] a high rating and thought I might like to have the contact info for one of our church teas. While it's officially a catering business, there's a banquet room next door to the commercial kitchen where parties with a minimum of 15 can be held. [Less than 15 there's a room rental fee].
You may recall I took my daughter-in-law, Samantha, and two granddaughters to a tea in Dexter, MI at Christmas time, and to my delight [they're Starbuck's and Tim Horton gals] they said they enjoyed it and would like to do it again. Well... you don't have to ask me twice about a tea party! I decided to make it a family affair and invited my daughter, and other daughter-in-law to come too, as well as some tea loving friends to reach the quota of 15 [and it may go over that count].
I drove to Pamela's on January 17th to meet the owner, and signed a contract for Tuesday, March 7th at 1:00 o'clock. I'm excited for this tea party!
Meet Pamela... actually her first name is Francine and her middle name is Pamela. She was delightful to talk to and reminded me a lot of another tea-loving friend.
I promise to blog about the tea when it occurs.
How interesting. Van Dyke & 30-31 Mile Road is all built up now from when I was growing up. My great uncle and aunt had a General Store at 26 & Van Dyke for many decades. They sold it in the 1970's and I believe a K-Mart is there now. In any case those were country roads back then and it sure has built up. I will be looking forward to your post on your tea party.ReplyDelete
