    Carpetbag Tea
Your Tea Party is in 
   Our Carpetbag.


 

Carpetbag Tea creates a time for you.
Maybe life doesn't allow you the freedom to be feminine; pull out that frilly dress, lace and flowers.  Well a Tea Party is the perfect excuse to escape from the everyday; wear your dress, serve on lace and adorn with flowers. 
This is what we thought; so we'll bring it to you.  Sit back, catch up with friends, we'll do the rest.  Don't want to dress up?  No problem.  We'll create the feminine backdrop for you to be yourself.

 
How we are different: 
Imagine, you have stepped back in time and have access to Great Grandma’s treasured tea ware and linens.  You’re favorite space has been set for a Tea Party and you did not have to lift a finger.     

That’s where we come in.  Carpetbag Tea does not have a stuffy restaurant or catering air. We have a warm intimate feel with a whimsical flair.  Great Grandma let us use the heirlooms we love.  We'll reach into our carpetbag and provide everything.  

It is Your Tea Party not ours.  Using the colors of your choice, we will design  Your Tea Party to match, china to linens.  We will keep things feminine, fresh, and fun, always with a mind of tranquility.

We feel that you do not have to have an event - birthday, graduation, shower etc., to have Your Tea Party.  Life is a reason to have Your Tea Party.  When you need a moment to put yourself first; to stop the continuous movement, that's when to have Your Tea Party.  Celebrate life in a tranquil setting and feel the Tranquility of Your Tranquil Tea.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Reunite
The green flourishes in our logo represent earth, garden and life.
You know we may bring Green Tea to the table, but did you know we also are green when it comes to the environment?
We use organic foods whenever possible, which eliminates pesticides.
We do not use any paper products in our table settings.  We use china and cloth which eliminates waste.
We do not pour our remaining tea down the drain.  Instead, we use it to water plants.  We use the remaining tea leaves in the plant soil to enrich it. 
We use the leftover lemons from our lemonade to clean our silver.
We bring a washbasin and use as little water in the cleanup as possible.
We reunite friends and family at Your Tea Party.  This small concentration of positive, tranquil energy is a starting point and actually improves our planet.
Every little bit helps
