the beehive tea room.

see MORE
the first time josh and i discovered the beehive tea room
in salt lake city utah was back in winter of 2006 on a little date.
we were home in utah from nyc for christmas break.
and…we maybe had our first conversation
about engagement rings at the beehive tea room that winter.
just sayin.
you should check it out for the decor alone.
each room is beyond beautiful.
i always feel like i’m back in time when i am there.
i do believe i was born in the wrong decade.

glad my husband is willing to go to these kinds of places with me.
if you’re ever in salt lake city,
we think the beehive tea room is a fun place to check out.
and who doesn’t love a little tea party every once in a while?

    The first date that my husband ever took me on was to a tea room/botanical garden/museum in San Marino, CA. He was so cute trying to know what to do in a tea room, of course, that was his first time.

    He planned the whole thing. Amazing.

    What lovely pictures! It's so sweet that such a beautiful place has such happy memories for you! x

  3. It looks like you are in a Sherlock Holmes novel. And your attire is so fitting for such a pretty place, Naomi!

  4. this place is amazing. And that outfit is perfect ! My boyfriend and I are hoping to do a roadtrip around America in May – if we make it to salt lake city we shall have to seek it out !

  5. Emily

    That is definitely a good man that will go to a tearoom! Such a cute story!

  6. JenRem

    Oh my, this place is amazing. I LOVE IT! Wish I lived closer to Salt Lake City to go. We have nothing like that in Detroit, unfortuntely :(

  7. I have been thinking about going there, these pictures sold me!

  8. I love the tea room. I love going there with girl friends and chatting or escaping a cold day and snuggling up to your lover. Their herbal berry tea and quiche is my fave!

  9. What a beautiful place! I'd love the power to click my fingers and go back it time! I'd go there! xxx

    You should try Ching Ching Cha on Wisconsin Ave (near M Street). Admittedly, the decor is not quite as charming as this cute little spot, but the tea is amazing and I can't help but take a billion deep breaths whenever I am in there – the tea smells sooooo good.

  11. sophieh

    My first thought as I was reading this is how lucky you are to have a husband that will accompany you to a tea room. How sweet.

  12. I love that you are all dressed up for the tearoom. You made it like an event! Totally something I would do too.

  13. Cathi

    We've never bee to the Beehive Tea Room but it's now on our list of places to see the next time we're in SLC. It's too late this year however I would really love to see Temple Square at Christmas time. That might be a good time to visit the Beehive Tea Room too.

  14. Amanda

    In my best Holly GoLightly voice, this place is daaarling!! I am seriously considering a trip to SLC just to visit this charming little tea shop.

    The picture of Josh is very Mad-Men-esque. I think it's great that this tea shop holds such pleasant memories for the two of you!

  15. What a beautiful place!

  16. This is absolutely my "cup of Te!" Incredible! So much character!

  17. How have I never been here and I've lived in Utah for 7 years?

  18. What an amazing place! I want to visit!

  19. I would have nothing to wear.

    What a fun place! I love those brown betty teapots.

  43. Mara

    Matthew and I have a place like that too! Aren't tea parties the best! I loved them when I was little. I brought out all my bears :)

  64. love that place and colors! wonderful blouse, Naomi. kisses

  65. Indeed. A tea party once in a while – is good for the soul! :) Happy Thursday.

  66. We've always meant to go here, but haven't made it yet. I'm not a big tea fan, but my husband enjoys it to an extent, I think.

    Have you been to Elizabeth's English Bakery & Tea Shop across from Trolley Square? It's a fun little place to visit.

  67. Oh wow! That place is so beautiful. I'd love to have a little date there with Brian.

    Thanks for sharing! :)

  68. Rach

  79. Sum

    Gorgeous. I need to go there.

  80. Abigail

    Makes me want to go to Salt Lake City for my next vacation.

  81. In love with the neckline on your shirt. Ok, I just have to say, I'm loving how you are inspiring so many people to savor the sweet things in life. Thanks!

  82. What an adorable place. I want to possibly live there. I live near salt lake and have never even heard of it. My husband would never go for it and I don't love tea but I might have to pretend for a night.

  83. so cute! i love the decor

  84. i LOVE the beehive tearoom! best hot chocolate on the planet.

  85. aw, this place looks great! I didn't make it to SLC when I was there last (only provo) but hopefully next trip – it looks like such a little joy!

  86. Lindsey

    I have yet to try the Beehive room…and I think there's no way in you know where that my husband would ever be caught dead there. I think this would be such a fun place for a birthday party, or a bridesmaids party! I did go to high tea once at the Great America Hotel when it was brand new…that was a blast!

  87. jordyn.

    sooooo great :)

  88. KATIE

    Over a year ago my boyfriend took e here on our second date. He picked it out on his own. It was a two hour lunch and I've been in love with him ever since. I wonder if it would have worked out differently had he taken me somewhere lame…
    His brother was taking girls there on first dates and they were all falling in love with him even if he didn't. It was kind of a problem so we made him stop and it solved the problem. That place is magic!

  89. Selene

    You look so pretty in your leifsdottir skirt!
    I feel like I was meant to be in another time as well!

  90. I always thought these pictures were adorable – and I love tea. Well, work sent me to Salt Lake and yesterday I was able to pay the Beehive Tea Room a visit. Thank you for the post! It's oh, so pretty <3

  91. Luuuurvely!
