My dreams are still sprinkled with memories of last year's tea party at the lovely vintage boutique in Philly, Vintage Connection. Heather, VC's owner, hand selects beautiful pieces to line the exposed brick walls. I am often scouring the racks for dreamy dresses and delicate blouses that inspire a spring tea party or picnic in the park.
In an effort to beat the winter blues, I asked Heather to send me a photo of the ultimate spring tea party dress that is currently in her shop. Of course, I was giddy with spring fever when I opened my email and treated my eyes to this beautiful blue dress. Heather shared that "the dress is blue lace with a rosette from the 1950's." She had me at "the 1950's," as my vintage-loving heart skips at beat when you mention any year between the 20's and the 50's. What can I say, I'm an old soul.
Many thanks to the lovely Heather for taking the time to select the perfect spring tea party dress. And consider yourself lucky if you're a Philadelphian, because Heather is offering a special discount to teaspoons & petals' readers. Just mention "teaspoons & petals" at the register and you'll only pay $250 (it retails for $350).
Not in Philly? Head over to your nearby vintage shop and scoop up a warm-weather dress. Hang it on your wall as you sip a cup of tea and let it inspire a spring tea party, or at least suppress your winter blues.
