The inspiration for Paris In A Cup came about because of the many requests from our customers to re-open a tea room. Our tea room experience dates back to 1994 when we opened Someplace in Time's tea room. The Someplace in Time tea room was purchased from us in 2002, and was closed in 2005. Although we knew we wanted to go back in the direction of a fabulous tea room for our customers, we did not want to exactly reproduce our old style; therefore, we decided on a French theme, and the fun began. Once our theme was chosen, we began our research on French tea salons. We scoured everything these unique and beautiful tea rooms have to offer, from their menus to furnishings and everything in between. We hunted for companies that import items from France including tableware, gourmet foods and beverages, as well as a countless array of other lovely novelties. Our inspiration stems from tea salons like Laduree', Angelina's, and Marriage Ferrer's, but we hope to create an image that is all our own at the same time. We also enlisted the assistance of a wonderful photo-artist, Sharon Sakimoto, who has visited and photographed Paris nine times. She kindly worked with us to produce an image for our business cards, gift cards, and menus. We are honored to have her art grace our walls. We're excited to let you know that a few old friends from our previous tea room have joined us to bring back some of your favorite sweets and savories (like the scones and baked potato soup) to name a few. We are truly blessed to have had all this fall into place so well. We hope your tea experience with us will be as wonderful as we have planned for you.
