The Christmas season is upon us and before we know it we will all be ringing in the New Year! Whew! But not yet! First, we must savor what Lindsay’s Tea Party considers to be the most magical time of year… Christmas!
As the cooler temperatures roll in, so does the desire to cozy up with your family and friends with a warm cuppa. I can’t think of a better time of year to break from the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping and gather for some tea and fellowship.
This year LTP will be having it’s Annual Christmas Tea Party at the lovely Grand Tea Room in Escondido, CA. What a lovely place this is for groups both big and small to gather during the most wonderful time of year.
From the moment you walk into the Grand Tea Room, you sense the feeling of British royalty or dining with the elite from Downton Abbey. Crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling, bright white mouldings line the walls and waitresses wearing black clothing with crisp white aprons carrying beautiful English china cups and teapots from table to table.
The mood is tranquil, the background is upbeat classical, the room is clean and organized yet still gives you a sense of warmth and comfort and allows you to feel the grace and sense the warmth that surrounds you.
The afternoon tea portions are plentiful and the courses are all quite good. One may dress up for the tea or the Tea Room does have a variety of hats to wear upon arrival as well.

Louisa, her Daughter, and her staff are the Best in Tea Hospitality within San Diego County! I always feel like Royal-Tea in their stylish and cozy Tea Room. We love the Grand Tea Room in Escondido 🙂 My Grand Daughter keeps asking me “when will we be visiting again?”
