MARY ANN'S TEA ROOM for "Friends Sharing Tea"

My two local Columbia blogging friends
 and I headed to Mary Ann's Tea Room in 
St. Louis, Missouri yesterday to celebrate
Gina's birthday.  She blogs at "Victorian Wanna Be"
 and Janice blogs at "Curtains In My Tree".
This was the outside of the building which used
to be a flower shop in the front part with
 a glass conservatory greenhouse in the back
 which is now a tea room.


Inside the tea room was very lovely and
since I am taking the photos you won't
see much of me which is good!


We were here to celebrate Gina's birthday
which is later this week:


We ordered off the menu and Janice
ordered us a large pot of white tea
 which we shared and enjoyed.

Our waiter, Travis was very sweet and
played the piano and sang
"Happy Birthday" to Gina in Italian.
We all agreed that this was the nicest
tea room we have been to so far!



These gals are lots of fun
and we had a great celebration!

Today is my "Friends Sharing Tea"
blog party - if you are a tea blogger,
please join me!

This post is also at this party:

Bernideen, what a beautiful tearoom - with the old-fashioned charm I love, without being over-the-top frou-frou! A lovely tea is just the best way to celebrate anything or nothing at all!

Hi Bernideen,
I am very late to link up this week. I hadn't realized that you were having Friends Sharing Tea on Wednesday. I love that tea room and those gorgeous chairs! Happy Birthday to Gina and what fun for you all. The homes on your next post are so very beautiful and intriguing and you do seem to be having some spring in your part of the world. It's raining once again here and I can't wait for sunshine and springtime. Thank you for hosting Friends Sharing Tea. Blessings, Karen
