Hometown Wanderlust: Teatime

By December 14, 2016October 11th, 2017No Comments

Hometown Wanderlust is an adventurous, weekly blog featuring one girl’s experiences with food, music, shopping, history, art and life in general around Dublin GA. This week, Dublin GA’s favorite redhead discovers teatime in #DublinGA.

Christmas is a wonderful time of the year, so are birthdays. Together they are most magical. I am lucky enough each year to celebrate during this most wonderful time of the year. During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, how lovely to take a couple moments for chatting with friends and simply relaxing…with a delicate china cup of tea and dainty treats.

It’s a busiest of Saturday’s…a morning of work for me and Nutcracker performances for mini-me with the birthday tossed in as a side note. Bossie has made birthday celebration afternoon tea time reservations at Vinteaques , a brand new “tea room” situated cozily in one of the beautiful homes along “Millionaires Row” on Bellevue Avenue.

We all arrive in our tea dress best and are greeted by our hostess who shows us to our table in one of the dining rooms set ever so elegantly with teacups and saucers and tiny teaspoons.

We’re started out with a couple pots of delightful St. Nick’s tea and tiered servers full of crustless pimento cheese sandwiches, mini gingerbread cupcakes with lemon frosting and colorful sprinkles, lingonberry pork canapes, (yum) and so much more tiny deliciousness!

We pour cup after cup, chattering and laughing, swapping stories with the occasional pinkie raise…of course followed by more giggling. There’s something to this tea party business. Why did we ever stop having tea parties? Our closest friends in attendance, though at one time that may have been favorite dolls or one marble eyed toy stuffed animal cat (named Keke) For a couple hours we’re fancy, silly, relaxed, yet very refined ladies.
