Seven Gables Mercantile is known for their eclectic offering of gifts, antiques, consignment items, and other treasures, but did you know they're also sought out for their top-tier tea parties?!
It's no wonder these events sell out time and time again. No detail is overlooked.
The decor is spot on.
You sip from real fine China tea cups.
It's a chance to gather with your girlfriends, family, or even a cute date.
These events definitely hit the sweet spot!
Nope. No dress code here. Of course, it is more fun to put on something preTEA. And with a theme attached to every tea party, you can really get into the spirit of things with your attire!
FEELIN' FINE (China)
You'll sip from a beautiful tea cup and use the prettiest of tea pots. Of course, lemonade and water are also on the menu for those who prefer a cooler concoction.
Finger sandwiches and the cutest pastries are brought in for each event by Happy Camper Deli and Bakery. The detail they put into each service is remarkable and SO very tasty!
You'll want to reserve your spot ahead of time by visiting Seven Gables Mercantile or giving the shop a call at 801.561.5557. Spots sell out quickly, so don't delay when the tea time clock strikes.
Once you arrive at your event, you'll be shown to your seat to prepare for a treat. Food and drink are served and you're left to spill the tea, laugh, and simply enjoy the unforgettable time together.
Tea parties vary from one event to the next and may include crafts, small gifts, and other special surprises!

MAD HATTER TEA PARTY
It's the tea party to beat all tea parties! Inspired by the tea O.G., this fun focuses on festive hats, whimsical treats, and general merriment. No wonder it's the most popular on the tea calendar!
Harry T. Potter (or Tea Pot for short) would feel right at home at this magical celebration. Okay, so perhaps this isn't his middle initial or his nickname, but we know he'd give his spell of approval for this always-popular event!
It wouldn't be a Gardner Village gathering without a pioneer-themed party on the events calendar. This is a memorable way to celebrate Utah heritage and time with your loved ones!
Yes, witches love cauldrons, but that doesn't mean they don't also put a teapot on the stove to boil from time to time. Add this tea treat to Gardner Village's WitchFest list of must-dos in 2023!
Beyond the scheduled themed happenings, which tend to take place on Saturdays throughout the year, you can also schedule private tea party events. From birthday parties to group events, there are so many reasons to sit and sip. There's even a Girl Scouts troop coming in for an event soon. (It's about time someone brought them some cookies!) The sky's the limit when it comes to tea party possibility!
