The occasion arises to cause anxiety for people throughout the country – it’s almost Valentine’s Day!!! For us, one of the biggest stressors is gauging what people want to receive. There are plenty of online sources and local flower shops that cover the traditional, romantic dozen rose bouquets. So, we decided to look to our friends (and ourselves) as inspiration to put together a collection of things that we might want to receive. If you know us (or follow us on facebook or instagram) you probably know that we LOVE sweets, caffeine, and just about anything that is really cute. And of course – flowers! Each selection is something we would love to get on Valentine’s and we hope you love them too! Introducing our VDAY collection:
You’ll notice that there are a few options for sweets and tea this year. We’re all about supporting local vendors so we were beyond excited to meet the guys over at Socha Tea, a Pasadena based company that focuses on organic ingredients when preparing their loose leaf tea blends. They know and understand their craft and provide such a unique experience for events. They also make custom blends for wedding favors AND they do catering. We met them recently at a wedding show and were hooked after trying their Jasmine Green Tea mocktail – Socha Jasmine Green Tea with mandarin oranges, fresh ginger, shaken and chilled. Say what?!!? SO GOOD!
Each sampler tea box comes with 5 different flavors to try along with filters for the ideal brew. Each packet brews up to 6 cups so use sparingly if you’re selfishly enjoying your tea (as you should be!).
Our other collaborator this year is our good friend, Danielle Keene of Top Chef Desserts fame. Danielle does dessert catering and is in the process of raising funds to open her own brick and mortar, Sheila Mae Bakery. Danielle specializes in nostalgic dessert creations and has created vanilla and chocolate cupakes, a few varieties of cookies (chewy, buttery goodness!) and berry chocolate gourmet popcorn for our collection. We do a lot of dessert tabletops with her and love her spunk. Check out her Indie Gogo page and help support Sheila Mae!
Each of the sweets boxes comes with a confetti balloon and packaged together with all the trims and fixings to make it super special!
Hope you enjoyed our Valentine’s Day Collection highlight – we hope to hear from you!!!
