How Do You Wear Tea?

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!

*Thank you Carol for sharing your beautiful photos with Tea!

Dress Your Little One In Red Carpet Style

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!

DIY Pom Pom

DIY Pom Pom

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.

DIY Pom Pom

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.

DIY Pom Pom

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!

Friday Round Up

Morocco

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:

These maps might not be the most accurate, but made from signature regional foods, we found them to be quite lovely!

You may have seen fireflies in your backyard, but have you seen them like this?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sleep in an ice hotel? Nadia from Child Mode shares her experience with the Hotel de Glace in Quebec.

Completed in 2012, The Megaro Project was the largest mural in London. Are you familiar with the Agents of Change?

We love following fellow mamas on Instagram, so we were delighted to find Bloesem Kids roundup of Instagram Mommies – What a great bunch!
