Tea Time

Yesterday we went to one of my favorite places for the very last time. The garden gate tea room, a lovely little hidden gem in the small historic town of Mt. Dora, Florida is closing this week. The tea, the atmosphere, the carrot bisque, the decor, and the chicken pie were truly something special. We dressed up for the occasion and did tea right! I wore my eyelet lace dress with my crinoline underneath, black gloves, and my great grandmothers felt feather hat from the 30’s. The other girls were all dressed up beautifully as well, we were quite the smart looking group. Hopefully they will reopen their doors somewhere nearby but until then I am determined to recreate the chicken pie recipe since they refused to give it to me! Here’s some pictures from our “last supper”…er, tea.
