Editor’s Note: As of February 19, 2015, Tee Party closed its store. They hope to reopen at a new location. If they do, we will definitely let you know!

If your kiddo enjoys playing in the kitchen and saying “cheers,” Tee Party is the place to be! This newly opened tea room for kids serves up delicious tea and treats, while offering entertainment and t-shirt making. Whether you want to sip on tea for two or invite your whole party for an afternoon of fun and giggles, we’ve got your inside look at this new hot spot.

Tree of Light at Tee Party

The Food + Beverages
If you stop in for tea for two, you will have the choice between six different tea options. Pick your size of afternoon tea, which includes finger sandwiches and an assortment of fresh baked treats. Don’t worry if your kiddo doesn’t care of tea. Tee Time offers flavored milks (the cotton candy flavor is a popular one). Tea for two starts at $24.95. Be sure to save room for drinking chocolate after your tea is complete; it’s not to be missed!

For you evening ladies, Tee Party has special events on Thursday and Friday evenings to unwind with Lambic Ciders cocktails made with exotic fruit syrups.

Insider’s Tip: The finger sandwiches are classic tea varieties, such as hummus, chutney and cheddar, and cucumber and cream cheese. You won’t be seeing PB&J on the menu. So if you have a picky eater, you may want to eat lunch at home and head in for dessert.

The Food and Desserts

The Decor
You will be blown away by the decor alone. This place has it all: a sparkling tree in the center of the room, walls lined with images of flowers, a garden enclosed space and a bright pink room for private parties. It feels like a secret garden when you step into the building in the middle of a business park. The rooms are like magical gardens straight from Disneyland or out of a fairy tale. Be sure to check out the Versailles Room toward the back of the store. This gorgeous room is available for private parties too.

Tea and Play
Tee Shirts and Gifts
Not only does tea time provide afternoon tea and events, they also create one of a kind gifts. From t-shirts to jewelry boxes, you can customize any of their souvenirs with your photo or design. If that isn’t enough, your little ones can grab a glittery tattoo and apply it right in the store. Custom t-shirts are $14.95 and are ready to take home the same day you create it!

Insider’s Tip: If creating a t-shirt is something you’re set on doing, call ahead of time to confirm the t-shirt designer will be there so your little one doesn’t miss out.
