Sometimes with blogging, events are spaced out. However sometimes they all happen at once and you ended up super busy! This is what happened when The Curve Fashion Festival and The Festival of Thrift clashed with each other and then I was also invited to the beautiful new premises of The Olde Young Teahouse (TOYT) for a bloggers meet. Both festivals looked too good to miss – So I decided to visit both! One on the Saturday and one on the Sunday. Thankfully the event at TOYT was on Sunday Evening to I was able to also slot that in!
If you’ve followed me for a while, you’ll know I love TOYT and have blogged about it a couple of times. I was so glad I got to attend and was glad it was the last event as It was the perfect way to arrive. I rocked up slightly later after being at The Festival of Thrift and was greeted by the lovely Tea Bee herself Carli and an array of refreshments.
I promptly got myself a delicious fruit punch served in a kitsch Jam-Jar glass and took in my surroundings. The Tea House has always been a place of comfort for me – an almost magical place saved for special days and times when I’ve needed a real pick me up. After a busy weekend I was glad for a visit and it was nice to visit in a more intimate setting without it being super full.
I love the decor – it’s exactly what i’m into. Shabby Chic with a D I Y aesthetic which radiates though the use of reclaimed wood, scaffolding boards and wooden boxes mounted on the wall.
I LOVE how these masculine D I Y features are balanced out with feminine bunting, lampshades, retro styl wallpaper and mismatched china.
More refreshments were offered – how could I turn down a well brewed cup of yorkshire tea and a chocolate/caramel cake that melted in my mouth?
After I filled my tummy, I snapped this image with owner Carli! By this time, this mumma-to-be was exhausted from a full on weekend and decided to call it a night.
Mega thanks to Carli for her delicious refreshments and kind hospitality. I can’t wait to bring Baby Eleanor to visit when she arrives – I’m sure she will love the teahouse as much as I do and it will become one of our regular places to visit!
