Join Me for a Spot of Tea

We celebrated my aunt’s 55th birthday last week with at spot of tea (in my best English accent) at Lavender House in Mckinney Texas. It was beautiful and I thought you might enjoy coming along.

The décor was French with a bit whimsy mixed in.

Love these! They has several hanging at different levels in the front window. I bet they look beautiful all lit up at night.

They also have a little sitting area with a full bar and this beauty. Our server played a special birthday song for my aunt. It made her day!

Love, love, love the comfy black chairs and toile table cloths. They really made the space feel cozy. I could have sat and chatted all day!
