Thank you for helping those at the Children's Center. With each paid reservation, A Spot For Tea will donate a portion of the profits to The Children's Center. It means the world to me to have this special tea not only put a smile on the face of a child but to help a child in need this Christmas. In the hustle and bustle of the season...thank you A Spot For Tea customers and staff for thinking of others this holiday season. God bless you all!

Luke 18:15 "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdon of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."

Thank you for the special day for my daughter and granddaughter. We enjoyed the festive atmosphere and the delicious food. Look forward to next year.

As a suggestion. We were at the front table in the corner by the stairs. We were unable to see or hear the story by the staff. We could see their backs and hear a couple of the speakers, but not all of them. Perhaps a different location for the speakers would work better for those tables in the corners. We look forward to the other events you offer and next year's tea.

Many blessings to you and your staff.
