Finding Love at Silver Tips

Two months ago, we received an intriguing e-mail.  One of our customers explained to us that on November 4, 2014, he had his first date with his girlfriend at our 'beautiful tea room'. Now, two years later, he was ready to ask her to be his wife and would we consider allowing him to propose at our Tea Room!

He had selected Friday, December 23rd as his special day.  We went back and forth about what he wanted to do and it turned out that he was planning to sit at the same table and surprise her.  He added that he would have a few friends come early, set up some candles and flower petals and when she walked in, he would ask her formally.

How could we say no?  So, we're happy to report that Alex got his wish, his girlfriend said Yes and there is...

Silver Tips Tea recognized by the Chamber

IMG_1230We were honored this morning at the Sleepy Hollow-Tarrytown Chamber of Commerce meeting with a plaque for achieving 15 years in business.  The meeting was at The Castle Hotel & Spa, a beautiful venue.  The Fred Astaire Dance Studio and Grape Expectations were also celebrating their 15 years like us.  As great as it was to receive this honor, it was quite awe-inspiring to be in the company of other, historic businesses who had achieved truly remarkable milestones.   Among them were 55 years for Allan Block Insurance whom we use ourselves for our business insurance, 85 years for the Warner Library where we will be doing a Tea Tasting in the Spring, 125 years for the Historical Society and a whopping 165 years for the Sleepy Hollow Cemetery.  We are so fortunate being in the Northeast, in New York State, and,...

Silver Tips is 15 years old

CIMG1263-001Silver Tips opened on November 6th, 1999.  We had 19 seats and had had been granted our Certificate of Occupancy the previous afternoon.  We were in over our heads, had little experience in running a restaurant and our employees had only the very basics of Tea training. I discovered, to my deep dismay, that our Food Prep person was a 7th Day Adventist and needed Saturdays off.  That first day, my sister and I were Food Prep and Cook!  We served 96 people, were full all day and elated but completely exhausted when the day was over.  We toasted sandwiches, heated Scones, sent out Afternoon Tea tiers and tried to avert disasters.   In the front of the house, my very good friend, Mike Olsen, who had just ended his tenure at The House of Tea in Philadelphia, came and helped all...
