Madison Tea Room and Gardens


I promised pictures of the tea room that my friend, Jane, and I had lunch at last Friday when
we were in Madison,Georgia.  The main reason we were there was to purchase tickets to the
Christmas Tour of Homes that will be on November 30th and December 1st.  I'll tell you more
about that on tomorrow's post.  This is the outside of the tea room.  It is right in the center of town.
When we walked inside we could see beautifully decorated tables, and all the walls were lined
with tea sets, cups and teapots.  It was very pretty and just what I love.
I loved the tea cart with all the silver and china.  Every piece was so pretty.
This was one of my favorite teacups. 
This is a tea for one, since my friend Jane, had colon cancer she can't eat a lot of foods,
so she just had a couple of scones with jam.  On the bottom tier was a small chicken salad
sandwich, egg salad sandwich, and sliced carrots and cherry tomato's. There also was a  cucumber sandwich and a avocado with tomato sandwich.                  
 The middle tier
was a cranberry scone and grapes and strawberries.  The third tier had fudge, lemon cake,
a cream puff and I honestly don't remember what the fourth one was.

This was my plate.  Our tea was a black currant Tea which the owner Kathy, told us she imports
from Europe.  It was very good.
I was really amazed at all the fine china she had.   There was even a fireplace with a child's
table and chairs setting in front of it.
We really enjoyed our lunch and the town.  Tomorrow I'll show you the mansion that we toured
where we got our tickets.  If you get the November issure of Victoria magazine, there are several
pages telling about the town of Madison.  It's called "A Small Town Christmas"
