I was curious as to how long it’s been since I hosted my first Tea Party. November 19, 2011. Almost three years since I fell in love with all this cuteness!!
What originally sparked my interest…!? An old high school friend of mine was just surprised with the most adorable baby shower at Crown & Crumpet in San Francisco. While I was immobile (and suffering through the worst pregnancy ever: bedridden for 8 months + hospitalized 20 times), I would longingly gaze at all her beautiful facebook pictures of her gorgeous shower. (So sad, wasn’t I?!) Everything was just so cute!! The food looked delicious + the place was just so lovely. I couldn’t wait to experience it for myself one day. I had just had my daughter, and was in need of some girl time. I got this brilliant idea to host tea, and searched for the closest tea house to me. Tyme For Tea & Co. in Niles Fremont, CA (I frequent there now, but it’s scheduled on the Tour for next year!) popped up, and I made reservations right away! I took my 2 SIL’s with me, a few close friends + a few girlfriends I wanted to get to know better. I could NOT get over all the cuteness!!?! From the teacup sets to the mismatched silverware, even the doilies!? I loved all of it. I couldn’t wait to do it again, so I planned another party a few months out. Little did I know, this would be the beginning of what is it today: 16 tea house spots waiting for us!! Thank you for following! 😉
