The Friday after Thanksgiving, is our annual Holiday Tea. There is much preparation involved in getting this organized - from menu planning to decorating to enjoying Thanksgiving dinner with family... it can be a bit hectic (so much so that I forgot to take any pictures on the day of the tea alas). This special event is one that has become a tradition for many of my guests. This year, I was surprised with a beautiful shiny green box - a present that featured an adorable teddy bear perched upon a tea cup, enjoying tea. The mother and daughter that presented the gift to me told me they just felt it belonged in a tea room! How thoughtful is that! Teddy will indeed find a special spot in the tea room, and every glimpse of him will remind me how thankful I am for tea room customers that have become good friends.
