You guys might remember the tea party I co-hosted a couple of months ago…well, we did it again! My friend Jessica and I, together with our squad, The Blog Exchange, had our quarterly party. We wanted to celebrate summer so we decided what better way to enjoy that sunshine than to have a picnic…on the beach. Am I right? Those of you who follow me on Snapchat (my username is copycatchic) and on Instagram (also copycatchic) you got to see a little sneak preview! We gathered up some local blogger friends and partnered with some fun sponsors to make it all happen. On to the pictures and pretty details!
Thank you Pier 1 for sponsoring this post. While this was a sponsored opportunity from Pier 1 all content and opinions expressed here are my own.
Most of you longer readers know how much I love a good black, white and wood combo in my decor 🙂 Well, I have to admit…I’m changing it up! I’m not sure if it’s because of the warmer weather or if it’s a permanent phase, but I’m trading in black for soft neutral grays and warm whites.
So like I mentioned last Friday, my friend Jessica and I hosted a super fun tea party event for our local blogger friends last weekend. Those of you who follow me on Snapchat (my username is copycatchic) and on Instagram (also copycatchic) you got to see a little sneak preview!
We partnered with some amazing sponsors to make it all happen. Not only did they make our event a success, but the ladies attending got to learn more about these great companies. Jessica and I carefully chose companies that we personally love and enjoy, whether they be local to the San Francisco Bay Area or because of their eco-friendly philosophies.
So let’s get on to the pictures, shall we? Then we can talk about all the fun details!
the art of tea
We were lucky to be working with The Art of Tea, they have SO many award-winning and scrumptious tea flavors to choose from. It was hard to decide. In the end, we let them decide and they chose the following tasty teas for use to drink. We tried the Amoré, 1896 and Appletea’ni flavors and they were definitely all crowd pleasers.
Yay everyone loves a goodie bag, am I right? Let me tell you everything that was in ours AND at the bottom you can enter to win one too 🙂
Herbivore sent us their Rose Hibiscus Hydrating Face Mist and Rose Lip Butter. They’re new faves already. That lip balm is…the bomb 😉
Love Goodly is a subscription service that I just learned about. They curate bi-monthly boxes that focus on eco-friendly and cruelty-free companies. Their boxes contain nontoxic beauty and skincare items, but also fun things like healthy snacks, and green accessories. They sent us some of their Green Molecule product as well as a gift card to use i their site. They’re also running a promo right now for $6 off their April/May box. Very cool.
Zady is website that offers quality fashion. They’re the epitome of quality over quantity. The pieces they offer are made by knowledgeable craftsmen out of the very best material. I love buying a timeless piece of clothing that I know will last as long as I want to wear it.
I just recently discovered Vitality Bowls when they opened up a location near me. Such a fun treat. They use super tasty and exotic fruits and berries combined with crunchy granola, coconut, seeds or nuts. They’re super yummy and I love putting them in the freezer and saving them for dessert.
POP ORGANIC CANDY
I discovered this great organic candy shop on Etsy when I ordered organic lavender sugar cubes for the party. I loved their philosophy so much that I asked them if they wanted to give us some of their delicious (and unique) flavored candy for the party and goodie bags. For the party we all sampled organic rosemary and pine nut toffee (my fave), organic floral bark, and popping berry crunch which is like organic pop rocks (yasss!). For the goodie bags we got to sample a couple of their fun lollipop flavors.
THE ART OF TEA
The Art of Tea gave everyone sample tea tins in the goodie bags. Great way to extend the tea tasting fun 😉
The Bouqs also gave everyone a coupon code to use when they order flowers. Yay!
We got these adorable bud vases from World Market to put each attendees gift bag. Aren’t they fun?

Spring is almoooost here. Isn’t it exciting? I love the hints of green peaking out and fresh rain on the ground. Now that the winter is almost over, I was inspired to throw a party to celebrate. I love winter, don’t get me wrong, but there’s nothing like spring to inspire one to bust out the nice linens and china and do some entertainin’.
I thought a springtime tea party would be the perfect addition to my monthly entertaining series (here’s the last one if you missed it). So for March I’m planning a tea party together with my friend Jessica (from HejDoll) and a few of our local blogger friends. And I thought, World Market was the perfect partner to collaborate with! Here’s some inspiration for the party! And a few of my favorite picks from World Market below – all for under $50! Yay #FiveforFifty 🙂
