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!

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!

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!
