We were thrilled when San Francisco photographer, Carol Vaziri, reached out to Tea about working together on a photo shoot. Her “natural and curious” style of photography captured Tea perfectly. The idea behind the shoot — “How Do You Wear Tea?”. Dressed up or dressed down, kids are constantly climbing, running, jumping and Tea is right there with them. We love seeing Tea in action, keeping children comfortable and stylish while they experience everyday magic. So, how does your little one wear Tea? Share your photos with us… they could end up on teacollection.com!
Not too long ago, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons (Lily from Modern Family) was walking the Emmy red carpet in custom Tea. While the exact dress will not be available for purchase, the dress that was the inspiration behind Aubrey’s custom creation can now be yours!
Not only does it come in Aubrey size – it comes in baby size too! This beautiful deep orchid color was found all through out the Majorelle Garden in Marrakech. It’s one of our favorites this spring and it’s perfect for all occasions!
Pom Pom: A loose, fluffy, decorative ball or tuft of fibrous material.
With this DIY tutorial, you’ll have handcrafted pom poms in no time! All you need is yarn, a pair of scissors and a fork to get started.
Begin by wrapping your yarn around the middle of the fork a few times.
Then wrap the yarn around the entire fork about 45 times. The more you wrap the yarn, the more dense your pom pom will be.
Take a 4 inch piece of yarn and wrap it around the middle of your wrapped yarn. Pull tight and tie in a knot.
Carefully pull the wrapped yarn off of the fork.
Cut each loop around the bundle.
Give your pom pom a haircut, making each piece of yarn the same length. Fluff up your pom pom and enjoy!

This photo was taken during our stay in Morocco. Dried fruit and nuts filled markets in almost every city we visited.
Things we found and want to share from this past week:
Whether you’re a new mother or a mother of five, you’re probably too busy too search out the latest and greatest products for your little ones. Imagine receiving a care package each month filled with just that… Let us introduce you to Citrus Lane. The items are carefully chosen, “No marketing gimmicks, no paid placements — just real recommendations from real parents for products that solve real problems”, and knowing this, we were so honored to be included in their February box. We’ve teamed up with Citrus Lane to give one lucky winner a 6 month subscription. Know someone who is expecting? We think this would be a perfect gift – paired with a few of our layette pieces, of course!
Update: Congratulations Heather Shurter!
New arrivals are here just in time for the first official day of spring! In the heart of the Marrakech medina (the old city) sits La Mamounia, a palatial hotel that dazzles with hand-cut tiles, ornately carved columns and handmade lanterns.
When we saw La Mamounia, we knew it was the perfect inspiration for our special occasion styles. Bring a little Moroccan magic home with you – the lighthearted prints, intricate embroidery and fresh colors are perfect for all your springtime celebrations.
