Highlights from 5 year Anniversary Week

Festivities, balloons, flowers, cards and a whole lot of fun is how I will remember this past week at A Spot For Tea.

On Tuesday, April 1st, we gave away a Hot Tea Gift Basket which included 2 oz bag of Chocolate Strawberry Tea, 2 oz. bag of The Perfect Spot of Tea, Pink Tea for One, Empress Tea Strainer and Tea Scoop. The winner Jean McMinimy who just happens to be a regular customer and comes in with her husband Stewart pratically every week at least two or three times. It just seems appropriate that she would win the first gift basket. Retail Value: $37.95. Congratulations Jean! We gave away FREE TEA all day long and had the main dining room filled with pink balloons adding to the air of celebration.

On Wednesday, April 2nd, we gave away A Yummy Gift Basket which included a bottle of Mango Tea Concentrate, the BLT Cheeseball and Appetizer Mix, Creme Brulee Cheeseball & Dessert Mix, and Earl Grey Bon Bons. Retail Value: $29.96 The winner Vanda Camper is pictured with her 2 children and she is a wonderful customer who always has a happy smile on her beautiful face. Congratulations Vanda! We also gave away FREE Mini Trifles (Peaches & Cream, Chocolate Dream). Its fun to try something new for our customers!

On Thursday, April 3rd, we gave away A Logo Gift Basket which included a NEW logo Mug, a child size Logo T-shirt and and adult size logo T-shirt. Retail Value: $39.97. The winner Maria Wilson who is also pictured above is a customer who loves to frequent us for some rest from her busy job. Congratulations Maria! We introduced our new t-shirt and mug at 25% off. I think the employees all got a bigger kick than anyone...sporting our new t-shirts around the tearoom.

On Friday, April 4th, we gave A Cookbook Gift Basket which included Tea Time Scrumptious Cookbook (our own cookbook), The Tea House Times Tea Recipes (A Spot For Tea is spotlighted with a couple of recipes in this book) and My Own Recipes for Afternoon Tea. Retail Value: $29.97. The Winner Wintress Autry who has had many Queen's Teas with us. I asked her to wear a hat for the photo...she warmly agreed. Congratulations Wintress! (Don't you love her name?) We gave 15% off all Entrees. Wow...what a day that turned out to be! Very busy indeed.

On Saturday, April 5th, we gave away An Afternoon Tea Gift Basket which included Gift Certificate for 2 Full Afternoon Teas, A Spot For Tea Journal, and 2 oz. bag of Chocolate Strawberry Tea. Retail Value: $55.96. Congratulations to Cindy Turner. She lives out of town in Shattuck so she has not picked up her basket yet but I'm looking foward to meeting her.
Pictured above we also hosted our first Chocolate Tea in the Queen's Room where Alisha Johnson our pastry chef prepared some beautiful chocolate desserts. Way to go Alisha!
All in all it was a week that filled my heart to the brim with joy.
Luke 6:38 "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

Thank you to all the customers who made it so special for all of us!
