The Front Porch Tea Room

Tea themed décor outdoors at The Front Porch Tea Room

Year after year Bonnie ensures the tearoom is decorated inside and out, from the hats pinned to the wall to the pictures a dear friend painted directly onto it to a painted teapot carved from a dead tree that stands post in front of the house. As the seasons and holidays change, so does the décor. “We are always taking things down and rearranging and decorating,” Bonnie says. “People love to see the changes inside and out.” In late April, visitors will see 25,000 to 35,000 daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths throughout the garden. In December, 10 Christmas trees are stationed throughout the entire tearoom, including one that stands year-round in a shower.

The Front Porch Tea Room is meticulously decorated inside and out throughout the year.

If you ask Bonnie, two components are key to her success: the food served for High Tea and the staff. Since the opening, many people have worked for her, including mothers and their children, even former customers. “People rave about my staff,” she says. “I’m so fortunate to have nothing but the best of gals. They are very interesting, they talk with the customers, and they tell them about the old house. We’ve had a lot of fun over the years.”


  1. All of the stories are very interesting and informative, I wish there were more tea rooms or tea house places to enjoy the art of tea
