Tea Rooms ~ The Gilded Rose

This weeks theme is Tea Rooms and Ventures. In April my family met at the Gilded Rose Manor Tea House in Northridge, California to celebrate my mother’s 85th birthday.


I love the fact that the Tea House street address is on Devonshire St. It sounds so English and creamy 🙂

There are several different table settings. There are 3 areas of service. The Rose Salon is the largest area,  the Atrium is a little separated from the Rose Salon, and then the Blue Willow Parlor is a private side room that accomodates up to 14 people. We were in the Blue Willow Parlor.

We had assorted scones with Devon Cream and Lemon curd and then a variety of tea sandwiches.

Our dessert platter with another fun assortment of goodies.

Although these tea pots aren’t the dainty variety that really served the purpose well, especially with these great warmers that they sat on. Our tea was the perfect temperature to the last drop of each pot. The gift shop at the Gilded Rose sells these, too.


The Gilded Rose has a nice gift shop. Besides all these fun Tea Pots and Cups they sell Tea Magazines, Cards, cake plates, baked goods, accessories. They also have a wonderful collection of loose tea for sale.

We all had a nice time here.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. Ellen. . .another lovely tea room adventure! Great pictures and such warm and cozy tea things! I am really enjoying your enthusiasm for ‘all things tea’.

    I just read in your profile that you have a degree in home economics and education. Me too. I’d love to chat — would you email me? I’m at gmail with the first part being the name of my blog.

    PS: I’d love to hear of your flea market finds. I have been browsing magazines and ‘tea’ is so popular. From Oprah’s mag and a great article and recipes on tea. . .to craft magazines with instructions for making tub tea. . .lots of great ideas!

  2. Oh my goodness…. your place is so beautiful and dainty!! I would love to visit it. I am a vintage/antique tea cup collector and I adore tea houses.

  3. What a pretty tearoom and the food looks great too. You know, I’d rather have a plain teapot with perfectly brewed tea than a fancy pot and lukewarm teabags. This looks like a wonderful place to share tea.

  4. I shall never be tired of hearing about tea time! It is also very nice to hear about your “girls” having a fun day out in this way. The pictures make it feel like I’ve done a little shopping today and looking is mostly what we do..right!
    The humbingbird picture is really cute..along with the recipe for humbingbird cake! It looks like a very tasty treat! I will try it this week! Thanks!

  5. Beautiful tea room. I haven’t posted yet…still getting over the mom’s day activities…but I will because I LOVE to go to tea rooms. Glad you had such a wonderful time with your family there!

  6. Purple is my favorite color so you can imagine I like the outside of it! The inside looks very elegant and sophisticated. I bet your group of ladies had such fun celebrating the birthday girl.

  7. Hi Ellen,
    I’m amazed that you go to so many tea rooms all over So. Cal. I think you’ve become my inspiration to travel a little further than my own backyard. This looks like a wonderful tea room and what a fun way to celebrate your mother’s 85th.

  8. Ohhh my! So lovely…I especially love the table for two with the beautiful comfy looking chairs. Thank you for sharing all the great photos and, most especially, the one of your family and friends. What a beautiful group of people!

  9. What fun! Those tea sets in the last photo are calling to me…..can you believe I do not even own a teapot! I must rectify that soon, so I can make some scones to eat with the Devon Cream and the Lemon Curd I just bought at the World Market!


  10. What a lovely tea room! I LOVE going to tea rooms! It must be the British influence in my blood!!!:) My church just hosted a Mother-Daughter High Tea for Mother’s Day…I have a blog post about it!!:) You’ll have to check it out!! What a lovely blog you have!

  11. What a lovely place to celebrate a Birthday! The decor is beautiful and the food looks yummy. Your photos are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing.

  12. Have you explored the Whimsical Teas Tea Room in the historic part of Fullerton, California? You may like to look into this one!

    Hi Nancy, I haven’t explored the Whimsical Teas Tea Room but I’m so glad you mentioned it here. I travel to Brea kind of regularly and a little side trip to Fullerton will be going on my list. Thank you…
