Tearoom Friends: A Great Mother's Day gift to Grandma Cline

Cline Girls and their Grandma
At our Edwardian Fashion Show we were graced upon by the lovely Cline Family! This family is truly delightful (not to mention very pretty too!) The Cline Family has been to our tearoom many times. For this Mother's Day, the girls made a special effort to honor their grandmother. They wrote a sweet poem for their grandmother inviting her to tea. We asked them if they'd be so gracious to let us share it with all of you, as it was just too endearing not too!! What a great Mother's Day Gift! Hope you enjoy! 

Tea Time with Grandma Cline 

Grandma, we were wondering if you would please, 
Join us at Miss Spenser’s Special-Teas. 
Even though we are all grown up, 
We would still love to reminisce over a cup. 

It’ll be just like the good old days, 
When we were little and Grandma would bring out the trays. 
There would be pretty tea cups, sugar cubes and lots of honey, 
Along with smiles, giggles and all that’s funny! 

It was our special ‘girl-time’ that only a few will understand, 
An unspoken bond that grew to be grand! 
So let’s dress up in our pearls, 
To go have tea with just us Cline girls! 

Love, 
Your Cline Girls 
Meredith, Megan, & Macie 

Highlights from our Fashion Show Tea!

We had a busy weekend here at Miss Spenser's...we were finally able to share our House of Elliott Fashion Show Tea Party. We showcased clothing worn from 1900-1920. As some of you will recall, our previously scheduled event was May 4, unfortunately a surprise snow storm made it's way to Iowa causing wires to come down and our home to be without power...with GEO thermal and an all electric house, makes it a bit difficult to brew a pot of tea!! Thankfully, most guests were able to reschedule...and for those who couldn't make it...we are still, so very sorry! We hope we can make it up to you in future tea events!! 

 Here are some highlights from this weekend ~ Enjoy! 
Just some of the Savories and Sandwiches that we served. 

Our Fancy Orange Cake in Chocolate Cups!

It was a lot of fun this weekend! Thank you to everyone who came!! 


Happy Mother's Day!
