According to legend, the origins of the “tea party” began when Charles the II married Catharine of Braganza. Cat grew up drinking tea in Portugal, so when she arrived in England for the wedding (1662) – of course, she brought a yummy casket with her. She became known as England’s first “tea drinking queen.” She would invite besties into her bedroom chamber for tea and talk. This tradition continues on – maybe not in the bedroom (LOL) – but amongst friends. These dear friends of mine looked so adorable in their Sunday afternoon tea outfits:) The only thing missing was the gloves, but darn it…too hot for all of that! Everyone looked fab! I especially fell in love with Bernadette’s shoes…a true la-day!
I'm a media strategist, fashion fan and whimsical event planner. For years, I've been "reporting" from fashion shows and fabulous events to my loved one out of pure joy. Unbeknowest to me in February 2012 my sister started kristysamone.com with photos and letters I'd sent her from New York Fashion Week. She said, "I think you need a blog!" LOL! I've been trying keep us with this and life ever since:) Thanks so much for reading!View all KristySamone posts.
