Pink Saturday and the Garden Gate Tea Room

I have been posting all week on a beautiful Tea Room in Mt Dora Florida.

The Garden Gate Tea Room

This was our sweet hostess. All of the ladies wear such beautiful clothing.

I love her pretty outfit. I swear I see pink in it.

My eyes went up and down and all around this wonderful place discovering every little detail and bit of eye candy that I could. I love the chandelier with it's pretty little shades with Pink roses, don't you?

Hubby and I sat here for lunch. It was a sweet little corner all to ourselves with lots of pink touches and of course LOVE. Having had a romantic shop of our own my hubby is very comfortable around pretty things. Not every guy is like that. I am blessed.

I fell in love with this mosaic table with it's pretty pink roses. Isn't it pretty?

While I took my picture of this lovely corner of the shop, there he was," not my hubby"a man definately uncomfortable with the girly surroundings with all the touches of pink and frills. You can see it all over his face. Little does he know that his picture is all over blogland now. lol
And showing up on Pink Saturday no less.
Now make sure you click on the picture and zoom in.
You have got to see his expression!
Now for some more wonderful pink things be sure to go to our favorite Pink Saturday Hostess, Beverly at

And if you would like to see another of my favorite shops go over to my other blog

See you there.

Happy Pink Saturday, Becky.

I love Mount Dora, and this looks like a wonder tea room. Tell your husband we are cheering for him. My husband is great like that, too. And, I do see that bit of a scowl on his face. ;-)

Well he really doesn't look too happy does he. I think he's just intimidated by all the pink loveliness...ha ha! At least you and your Dave had a wonderful time.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Loving this tea room. They poor guy in the mirror looks like he would rather be in the dentist chair having a root canal. So funny.

I have yet to figure out exactly what kind of bed I want. I have several styles I like. I'm hoping when I see I will know, if not I'll make one myself.

Happy PS

Hi Becky, Happy Pink Saturday! This is the prettiest tea room. So many beautiful things to look at! I had a friend that moved to Mt Dora years ago. She went there for a visit and fell in love with the area.
Bless You, Shirl

Ohhhhhh Becky, This is what its all about for me. I love it all. Sooooo pretty. I couldn't wait to stop over, and boy you made my day! Happy Pinks Girl!

Sandi said...

Oh I love your post! And the man in the background...cracked me up! I even called hubby in to get a good look at the enlarged picture and told him the story. He does look a mite uncomfortable doesn't he. I also have been very fortunate that my hubby doesn't mind pink pretties. I think we would have to live in separate houses if he did...LOL.

JudyBug said...

Oh I love this! I cold take that little mosaic table home in a heartbeat!


Hi Becky,
That man is soooo funny, little did he know that his misery was going to make so many women laugh!! Sorry I was mia, we had alot of stuff going on this weekend and I haven't even looked at the computer! I love the mosaic table and that tea room is amazing! We'll have to meet there sometime.
