Pink floral china patterns adorn with gold trim, frilly tablecloths, doilies, pocket pies, shortbreads, & truffles, a light hum of classical music, gorgeous ladies draped in beautiful flowing sundresses relaxing, sans smartphones. That is the fantasy image that often comes to mind when one thinks of a tea party & Sweet Shalom Tea Room makes that a reality.
Sweet Shalom Tea Room offers the perfect destination for a Mother Daughter date and/or a Moms Day Out. Located at 8216 Erie Street it is full of history, it was originally a small farmhouse built over 140 years ago and was enlarged and remodeled in Queen Anne style architecture in the late 1800’s, in 1999 the house was saved from demolition and moved from its original location at the southeast corner of Centennial and Erie Street. Even the location adds to the experience, I love it!!
The name “Sweet Shalom Tea Room” was inspired by the biblical word “shalom”. The definition of shalom includes peace, harmony, completeness, wholeness, wellness and perfection. You can literally feel your blood pressure drop as you enter the house and are greeted by peace and harmony.
Sweet Shalom Tea Room offers 2 Seatings on Friday and Sundays at 11am or 2:30pm and has Special Events throughout the year. Each Seating has a fun, well thought-out themed menu!!! I am already swooning over September’s; it’s Anne of Green Gables!!!
We met up with some good friends for a Mother Daughter double date and had an absolute blast! It was literally the most enjoyable afternoon that I have had in a long time, there is something about slowing down, sipping tea, escaping from the fast-paced world that truly lifts the spirit. The theme for our tea seating was “Glamping” and the ladies at Sweet Shalom Tea Room did a fabulous job, the food, craft, tea, etc. was spot on….right down to the girls roasting their own marshmallows!!
CAMP TEA-A-CUPPA: A GLAMPING TEA
“Glamping” combines the positive experiences of camping with a bit more glamour and comfort. And do we have the ultimate Glamping afternoon planned for you! No creepy crawlies, no leaky tents, just the cheery pleasures and fun of camping with a touch of elegance and, of course, tea.
Our menu includes:
◦Campfire Chicken & Veggies,
◦Mini Dogs with all the Fix-ins’,
◦Homemade Potato Salad in Lettuce Cups,
◦Skillet Baked Beans,
◦Gourmet Fire Ants on a Log,
◦Dutch Oven Raspberry Lemonade Cupcakes ,
◦Cherry Hand Pies, and
◦“Make Your Own” Fudgy S’mores.
And what Glamping trip would be complete without crafting? So, to add to the excitement we’ll be crafting adorable”buggle” magnets. No bug repellent necessary.
Have special dietary needs? Have no fear; you don’t have to miss out on tea. They are very accommodating. They put together a beautiful vegan spread for me; they do ask that you share your dietary requirements when you make your reservations.
The menu and themes change every month and they do offer special events, like a Princess Tea for the girls….so make sure you check out the website and plan ahead, you don’t want to miss out! http://sweetshalomtearoom.com/
