F.A.Q.

How many guests can you accommodate?

Our special events host a variety of guest sizes from 10 to 150.

How far in advance should I reserve my special event?

We recommend 3-4 weeks ahead, however, for large parties (25+), we do recommend several weeks earlier.

Do you have a private room for my event?

Our tearoom is one large hall, but we use movable boxwood hedges to separate the special event spaces
from our regular reservations. These private closures are available to the Signature Package and the
Queen’s Package. A party of 80+ will be considered a closeout event and the entire tearoom will be exclusive
to you and your party.

How much will my deposit be?

The deposit amount will depend on the amount of guests that you expect to have at your event. We require
a 35% of the estimated total. There are no exceptions

Can I get a refund? Change my date?

Unfortunately, all deposits are non-refundable and non-transferable and will go towards your final bill. Please
review our website and all event details accordingly prior to securing a date. There are no exceptions

I'm a party of 10 with no special occasion, why do you need a deposit? Why do you require a pre-set menu?

Due to the popularity of the tearoom, our reservations do fill up swiftly. Larger parties can slow our kitchen
down immensely, resulting in delays for not just your party but our other guests as well. Therefore, a preset
menu helps to guarantee that your party will receive their food in a timely manner.

My party is over 15 guests, why can't I get the Tea Rose Afternoon Package?

We have found that 2 hours of seating time is not an adequate amount of time for a party of over 15.
Therefore, we do require that all parties of 15 or more guests select the Tea Rose Signature Package.

I have a party under 15 guests, can I still get the Signature Package?

Yes, It is common for smaller parties to upgrade their package for the extra hour, unlimited sandwich option,
and included cake cutting fees.

I want the Gazebo area, can I reserve that spot?

Unfortunately, we do not guarantee specific areas in our tearoom for special events. According to our policy,
the largest party will get the gazebo because it is our most flexible space without disturbing other guests.
Closeout parties are guaranteed the entire tearoom without outside guests during the allotted event time.
There are no exceptions

Do I need to decorate my table(s)?

Our packages provide place settings, fresh linens and mixed seasonal flowers at each table. While outside
decorations are welcome, it is not necessary to decorate.

Can I bring party decorations?

You are more than welcome to bring your own decorations. The only item we do not permit is confetti. Many
of our customers bring banners, balloons, and give away favors. We also have a full florist on premises which
can add custom centerpieces to match your occasion. Please ask your event coordinator for details.

What if my party is less or more guests than I expected when I put my deposit?

We ask that you let us know 48 hours prior to your event for your final head count so that we can adjust
accordingly. Guests that do not arrive but were accounted for will still be charged on the day of the event.

What are time will my party be?

Parties of 15+ guests are scheduled at either 11am or 3pm seating times. Depending on the package of
choice, your party will run 2-4 hours. You’re welcome to arrive 30 minutes prior to your event to set up your
decorations.

Do you provide champagne/wine?

We do not provide champagne or wine at our tearoom. However, our special events are considered private
events where you can bring your own spirits. Please keep in mind that our servers cannot handle these
beverages and we do not provide glasses. An additional $2/adult will be charged for clean up fees. Please
speak to your event coordinator for details.

Do you provide a cake?

We do not provide cake for your event, but you are welcome to bring your own cake for a cutting fee of
$2/guests. Our Signature and Queen’s Packages include these fees as well as the cake and a gift table.

When do I pay my final bill?

Your final bill is due after your event. We will deduct your deposit amount from the total. It will also include
your tax and gratuity.
