Here at Tea, we want to give children the world.

A Parade of Prints: Discover Fresh Styles and Big Easy Flair

New Orleans

There’s something truly magical about New Orleans that captivates the hearts of all who visit. Maybe it’s the southern hospitality and Parisian ambiance, or that the streets are always dancing with the sounds of soulful beats and the smell of Creole spice and hot jambalaya… or perhaps it’s the revelry that ignites the city come any big win or celebration. There’s this ‘anything goes’ attitude that makes you feel right at home. And just to make sure you feel extra welcome, the city allows anyone to throw their own welcome party parade! All you need is a quick permit, a brass-band and the perfect parading ensemble.

“One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong

Americans have always dreamed big. That’s why Neil Armstrong made it to the moon on July 20, 1969. 

Today, we are surrounded by innovation. With a growing database of facts and information at our fingertips, we, more so than ever, have the ability to defy limitations and pursue even the most far-reaching ideas. New technologies pave the way for new thinking, and ever greater possibilities. Just like the  innovators and inventors who came before them, your little citizens can do anything they set their mind to. We are all born curious, all it takes is a little imagination!

Headed South for Sunshine
