Event Planning

Our tearoom, located in the historic Seneca Center in Morgantown, WV, hosts a variety of events, including but not limited to baby and bridal showers, retirement and birthday parties, and other special events.

All special events hosted at The Tea Shoppe are allotted a two hour time slot.* We have two tea rooms available. Our Main Dining Room seats up to 40 guests and our newly expanded and renovated Event Dining room now seats up to 28 guests.

You are welcome to decorate our dining rooms for your special event, but no confetti or glitter. Balloons and party favors are welcome. You may also bring in your own cake. (We do not charge a cake-cutting fee.) No other outside food or beverages are permitted. You may, however, order cookies, cupcakes or a custom full-sized dessert through our in-house pastry chef. Upon prior request, we will be happy to provide a gift table.

For larger groups, we request you select the menu in advance. We will happily assist you in selecting the Tea Service that best suits your event. Groups smaller than twelve may find that choosing from our menu individually during the event works best.

Reservation Details

A $75 non-refundable room fee is required if your event is scheduled for a Saturday or Sunday and any evening after 5PM. This will hold your date. Parties are a maximum of 2 hours from your scheduled start time and must be vacated at your scheduled time. Additional time can be added at a rate of $50 per 30 minutes prior to your event.
