This past Monday we had a spring tea party to launch our new Fantasy Garden Collection, a vintage inspired capsule collection and collaboration with New York based jewelry company Ciner. I don’t know if it is the recent release of Beauty & The Beast, spring in general, or the fanciful nature of this new collection but I have had a tea party craving for awhile now. Talented Charleston-based illustrator Daniel Velasco did our invites and we purchased teacups that doubled as party favors for all the guests and turned Candy Shop Vintage on Cannon Street into a tea room for the afternoon.
Thanks to Ooh events, we were able to squeeze in seating for 18 people down the length of the store. We served Charleston grown tea from The Charleston Tea Plantation in three flavors – Charleston Breakfast, Peach and Earl Grey. Frampton’s Flowers provided some beautiful fresh ranunculus for us in shades of pale pink.
And one of the best details were the beautiful, hand painted unicorn macaroons from Mercantile & Mash:
The centerpiece of our new collection, The Unicorn Fantasy Necklace:
Our floral selfie wall was also a lot of fun:
As were the unicorn horn party hats from Meri Meri party:
I only slept about two hours the night before but still had a blast:
Thanks to all who came and contributed to a magical afternoon in Charleston!
