Tea Party

This Sunday we had tea with Karl, Donatella, and Naomi -- fancy huh? We're kidding obviously, but we did pick up these Prêt-à-porTea bags from The Cheese Shoppe while doing our Saturday shopping and decided to have a lovely tea party with our new found friends. The kitschy tea bags are designed by Donkey Products, a company based out of Hamburg, Germany. We love the Genious/Insanity line, and the Royal Tea  bags. Tea with the Queen -- imagine that!

Naomi is particularly fussy about how she takes her tea. She can be such a diva sometimes..

Stephanie received this gorgeous antique tea set from her Grandmother Stella. It's been stored away for a long while, but we love all the ornate details and were excited to polish it and put it to use. The tea cups are from her Grandmother Elizabeth's wedding china set and travelled from Hungary when she moved here to Canada with Stephanie's Grandfather.

To compliment our tea, we also stopped in at the Cake & Loaf bake sale for some 100 mile cookies, gluten free chocolate almond biscotti and oatmeal molasses bread. We seriously can't wait for the shop to open, but in the meantime we suggest you sign up for their weekly bread basket service.
