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:

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!

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!

SuperKawaiiMama, Aurora Himeand I all had crazy nail art on so we had to take group photos 😀

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.

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
