Tea in Saint Paul, Mn.

Hello tea friends!  I have been so busy this week that I never found time to prepare and enjoy a leisurely tea!   So today I thought I would share a tea room my precious daughter and I visited last August.  We enjoyed Lady Elegant's Tea Room in Saint Paul, Mn. so very much!








The table was set with so many pretty tea items.









My daughter choose the Starburst tea, a fruity herbal tea.  I had the Jane Austin Blend, a black tea.








The tea tray arrived when we were choosing our hats!











A wonderful  menu!  Doesn't the food look delicious?




















I'm ready to visit the tea room again!  Wish it wasn't so far away!

Thank you for stopping by!  Hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea,  A Return to Loveliness,  and Share Your Cup Thursday.

I have never been to an authentic tea-room where you wear gorgeous hats. It looks like fun and the food, oh my. Those scones look delicious. I love the blue and white plates, too.
Must visit one soon. Deb

You two look so sweet in your hats! This looks like a lovely place to enjoy tea and treats. That tiered tray is full of tasty looking desserts. I am sure you had a great time. The tea cups are very pretty too, I love the first one the most, it looks so romantic in pink.

Oh, I have to remember this! I come to Minnesota often to visit my boyfriend and his family, and will be visiting this! We used to visit a tea parlor in Pinehurst, NC when I lived there and i miss it. Have to find one in Kansas! :)
