Life is like a cup of tea…

meant to be filled to the top, and enjoyed with great friends!

This past weekend we celebrated the amazing mothers in our life with our annual Mother’s Day Tea!
This is one of our favorite events at My Cup of Tea!
To make it even sweeter, this year we were joined by our new friend & photographer, Kristen Gustafson. She hung around and captured the special moments we had that day. All of these pictures featured today are hers, and we will be linking her info at the bottom of this blog as well.
Be sure to stay tuned for upcoming collaborations we will be doing with her!

Linda prepared homemade snacks and drinks for all of our guests!
These snacks included:
Russian Butter Balls (our personal favorite!)
Cookies
Raspberry & Apricot Shortcakes
Cheesecake
Goldfish
Apricot Nectar Punch
& Water

Luddy stood watch over the popcorn stand – his favorite job to do here!

Can you tell how much love was poured into those refreshments? The love didn’t stop there though. Linda picked out beautiful pink roses to give to the moms who shopped with us that day. It was so fun to hand these out!

At 1:00 we had a very special guest join us! With a bag of books in tow, Alice was here from Wonderland and ready to read books to all of the kids who joined us! She posed for pictures and enjoyed the snacks with the kiddos as well!

Our newest nursery furniture collection is the cutest thing we’ve seen! It’s called The Emory Farmhouse. It comes in two colors, Driftwood, which you can see here on the nightstand we have in store. nightstand.jpg

Or this beautiful Linen White that we have in the crib!farmhousecrib.jpg

The brown would be so cute for a rustic feel but the white transitions very well from boy to girl and would be perfect if you are planning to use your crib for multiple children.

Right now we have a white crib, 6 drawer dresser, and a nightstand in store so come in and check it out! Visit their website for more information on this beautiful set!

The Farmhouse collection isn’t the only thing we have here, though! We have a huge selection of furniture and even if we don’t have it in store, we can usually order it for you!

Pictured below is our Langford Crib and 5 drawer chest in Warm White. This Crib retails for $549 but is currently on sale for $449!cribpicccc.jpg

This entire collection is on sale and we will price match! Here is the link for any more information you would like on this collection!

Some of our cribs have been discontinued, so here is a quick and easy list of what is discontinued or very limited stock left!

Most of our cribs come with the toddler rail, but you do have to purchase the rails to convert it into a full size bed. You never HAVE to buy the extra rails, but we definitely always suggest to buy them for instances where the crib or color is discontinued. In order to order, we have to have at least half down and it usually takes about 4-6 weeks to get it in, depending on the company’s stock.

Our Million Dollar Baby furniture collections are beautiful! These cribs are definitely a little more timeless as opposed to modern, like the Franklin & Ben line!

Visit their website to see more of these gorgeous cribs!

She always says that she loves being a part of all of the biggest moments in a couple’s life! You can definitely tell that she loves her job by her big smile and her willingness to help anyone who walks in the door!

All about Morgan and Jade

You’ve probably seen Morgan around for a while now since she’s been with the company for about 2 years. She’s a senior at Tech and she’s originally from Hobbs, New Mexico! We all love Morgan so much! She’s so sweet and she’s our go-to girl for fashion advice. This girl always looks so cute and we’re glad because that means we always have a model for our women’s clothing! She definitely helps to keep us all looking trendy and she adds the right amount of “college girl” to our “mom-ness” at the shop!

Outside of work, Mo really loves hanging with her friends and visiting her family back home! We are so glad to have her on our team! She will be graduating soon and when she decides to leave our company, we will all be so sad to see her go!

Now it’s time for a little about Jade! She has been with us since August of last year and she has just fit right in with our little group! Jade is such a unique soul and literally knows everyone! So if you haven’t seen her at MCOT, don’t worry, you’ve probably met her elsewhere or will at some point! Jade has been married to her husband, Kiko, for 11 years! Together they have three children, two cats, and two dogs! Jade is such a blessing to our company and comes in every morning with a smile on her face and two giant coffees!

A few of Jade’s favorite things at our shop are Jelly Cat, Kickee, Jak & Pepper, Kissy Kissy and Minnetonka!

We are kind of obsessed with her children and you can often find Merritt modeling for us! IMG_3521.JPG.jpeg

Jade is truly the “mom” of the group and when she isn’t busy working for us, you can find her reading or probably cuddling her big ol’ doggie!

We are so happy to have her as part of our team!

P.S. Don’t bother her on Sunday…she’s busy praising’ Jesus and watching Nascar!

Shark Tank: Tried & True

Who else loves Shark Tank? So many great businesses start out by being on the show and while we don’t have all of the cute baby products that have been featured, we do have a few!

The last product we want to tell you about is one that we don’t actually have in store. But as moms, we feel like you NEED to know about this! There is an app called Qeepsake that will text you throughout the week to ask you questions about your babies! This is a great idea for busy new moms who forget to take pictures or just don’t have the time to sit down with a baby book! After so much time, you can then print a book of everything you texted back to the app and you have a cute little baby book! Be sure to check it out on your app store!

Screen Shot 2017-11-21 at 1.56.16 PM.png

We hope you check out all of these awesome products! Come by the store to grab your soap sox in time for Christmas and definitely download Qeepsake to document your baby’s first year!
