August 14th - We've Only Just Begun -Revised

We've Only Just Begun to explore all the possibilities that The Iris can entertain. You've seen in a previous blog some of our featured artisans and we have more joining us all the time. Come in and browse the merchandise we have for sale - perfect for that special friend or loved one or a hostess gift. On August 14th (Second Saturday) we will launch what we hope to be a monthly "TEA TIME TALK". Pop in around 2 pm to hear about the inspiration behind the vision for the TeaRoom. We also have Roll With It on board with samples of their luscious goodies - we're removing all calories for one day only :) At 4 pm Miranda, our gracious proprietor, will be demonstrating the Primula Teas. Be sure to be on hand to see how these amazing little packets blossom into beautiful flowers when put into hot water - just a delight!

Why drink tea? Tea is healthy in a lot of ways. It lowers blood pressure, protects the heart, helps to prevent obesity, prevents tooth decay and increases immunity. Tea's impact on one's psychological health is immediate. That's why tea has become a way of life for millions of people all over the world AND when enjoyed in the serenity of The Iris, all these pluses are intensified!!

A sign-up sheet for the Grand Opening Soiree on October 9th is available at the tearoom. Choose your time now before we are sold out!

Miranda is still offering her weekly $15 bouquet specials in which she always adds a touch of joy. Let her color in the blossoms for your unique bouquet.
Bloomz continues doing business in the rear of The Iris , so before you leave you just might want to pick up a bouquet of nature's gift for yourself. Please remember Bloomz for all your floral needs. Your support of locally owned businesses such as Bloomz and the Irvington Tea Room is greatly appreciated.

The Iris is available evenings and Saturdays for meetings such as church, community, writer's and women's groups. Also, special events such as showers, retirement/birthday parties, and of course your special 'Tea'! There has been great interest in the meeting space, so call soon to reserve your day and time. Miranda is looking forward to hosting your group.

  1. Miranda,
    Thank you so much for making our wedding so beautiful! Kristen and I were so thrilled when we received our bouquets. They were absolutely gorgeous and exactly as we envisioned. And the church! I don't know how you did it! The tulle around the entrance was beyond anything we imagined. It really, really blew us away. Of course, the flowers at the reception were wonderful, too. Our plain cake was transformed by your flowers, and the table centerpieces were so elegant. Thank you so much for everything! We'll definitely be passing the good news about Bloomz on to our friends.
    Kelly Wilson

  2. Thank you, Kelly and Kristen. I am honored to have been such an integral part of your wedding, and with you both being such beautiful women (inside and out), it was easy! Wishing you a lifetime of happiness, health and prosperity.
