Recently we held a tea party at the new Cristina Re store and it was so beautifully decorated I couldn’t wait to post the photos!
When we decided to take a trip to Melbourne, the one thing I *really* wanted to do was have a big meet up where I could catch up with all of my blogging friends and everyone else we knew in Melbourne ^_^
SuperKawaiiMama was completely awesome about the idea and organised a tea party for us at the new Cristina Re flagship store. I had only heard of Cristina Re in the sense that she makes the beautiful scrap-booking supplies and stationary and I had no idea that there was a beautiful little cafe attached!
The cafe was decorated with beautiful butterflies:
We had a great turn out! From left to right below:
Being that we were pretty much all bloggers we had a huuuge amount of photos by the end of the day!
Here he is!
Everyone was dressed so immaculately!
The setting was delightful and oh my god the food… the food!
There was so much food! We had spinach quiche…
Tiny delicious cupcakes:
And the most beautiful hand made chocolates:
James ate about a billion of the delicious sandwiches!
Everywhere you looked there was something else beautifully presented!
It was quite funny, not many of the people who came had actually met in real life before but I don’t think there was an awkward pause the whole time! We bloggers sure can chat!
SuperKawaiiMamaand I chatting to our hostess, who was the friendliest person in the entire world!
I so love this photo:
We ended up staying right up until closing time because we were having so much fun 😀
Esme and the Lanewaylooking beautiful as usual!
Some of the yummy food:
There were several yummy teas served that day including mint, lemon, chamomile, fruit and others that I’ve forgotten. We had a lot of fun trying to work out which tea was which because they all came in the same tea pots XD Lucky dip tea!
I was totally jealous of Aurora Hime’snails, they had little bunnies on them!
More food… because I just can’t get enough of it! The service at the cafe was really great, and they just kept bringing more tea as we drank it all.
I wanted to take this chandelier home with me!
We had such a wonderful time that day, it was a really lovely introduction to Melbourne and it was great to finally meet some of the people I’ve been chatting online to for years! I can’t wait to go back!!
Thanks so much to everyone who came to have tea with us at the Cristina Re store! <3 <3 <3
