When did you start the The Lemon Lily Tea Room brand and what was the inspiration behind it?

The Lemon Lily Brand was started in August of 2014 as a place to slow down and savor memorable moments.  Whether guests have chosen The Lemon Lily Tea Room to share the gender of a new baby, celebrate a family union or simply slow down with family and friends, like it’s collection of mismatched furnishings and tea pots, every Lemon Lily guest has a story. The Lemon Lily Tea Room is a space for “storytellers” to slow down, enjoy a lingering moment with loved ones over an assortment of delicious comfort  foods while settling into a relaxing pace.
