A couple of weeks ago we heard that the amazing The Cross Decor and Design store in Vancouver was hosting a tea party. With us being 2 girls who would never turn down a cup of tea and a party, we couldn’t resist going. We had to check things out. They were also featuring the talented baking extraordinaire Rosie Daykin and her #1 selling baked goods cookbook, Butter. Which by the way, is absolutely beautiful. We own it and love it.
Don’t you think that tea just tastes better when you drink it from a pretty little tea cup?
Natasha purchased this gorgeous little blue beauty. The Royal Albert Polka Blue Teacup/Saucer.
It’s so very English.
On a different day we had to go downtown and decided to continue our ‘coffee shop visits’. We stopped in at this local coffee shop Elysian on West Broadway.
Huffington Post British Columbia recently rated it #5 on their top 15 Vancouver cafes. Elysian baristas are well known as the ‘real deal’… true coffee bean connoisseurs.
We’ll end this post on a sweet note.
Natasha made these mini delicious vanilla cupcakes for Easter day. Just like the little cup of java above, these little cupcakes reaffirm that sometimes the best things come in small packages!
