Sitting in the sun-drenched dining room at Dessert Trends Bistro sharing tea with a friend is definitely a little luxury.
I love whiling away an afternoon chatting and laughing and dreaming over earl grey. Throw in a few stuffed animals and it’s like my childhood make-believe tea parties come to life.
Then they bring out one of their seriously gorgeous house-made desserts and it’s pure bliss.
Do you guys have a favourite spot to stop for a cuppa?
This gorgeous weekend was back to the usual mad dashing around the city. Luckily, I had some lovely R&R built into the schedule in the form of a very sweet tea party with five of my nearest and dearest pals.
It was so relaxing to spend an afternoon on Emma’s beautiful, sun-drenched deck. She and her fantastic roommate have done an incredible job of making their entire apartment decor-magazine worthy, and the deck was the latest to undergo an amazing transformation. I don’t know where they find the energy for all of this DIY-ing. I’d have been trying to Tom Sawyer the heck out of all that white painting. but the serene little hideaway they’ve created is worth the effort (says the woman who had to make no effort at all to enjoy the results. heh).
It should be noted, that Henry, the beautiful cat featured above, is not sleeping, but resolutely ignoring me. I think he was mad that we didn’t let him into our earlier photoshoot which Emma was helping me with for a DVT-related project.
He did make it into this awesome outtake though. I love how determined he looks to be there:
