Spring Celebrations: Party Planning DIY’s for Little Citizens

On the set of our spring catalog shoot in Australia, we planned to set up a table fit for a spring celebration. As we unpacked pillows, plates and everything in between, the kids couldn’t wait to get things ready. Excited for their party, they jumped in and had a blast helping get everything in place. The key to helpful little ones? Make prep fun! Here are some ideas on how to get your kids involved with party planning.

An Inside Look at our Insiders Weekend

Tea Insiders
This past weekend, we invited 22 of our Tea Insiders to join us in San Francisco for a weekend of conversation, collaboration and lots of celebration. Our Tea Insiders is a group made up of Tea Collection’s nearest and dearest explorers. They share our brand values – spreading connection and curiosity through the lives of their family and friends, covet our new arrivals each season and aren’t ashamed to call themselves “Tea obsessed”. They flew in from all across the country (and Canada, too!) to spend time with us at our Studio Tea space. Over the course of 2 days, we shared some exciting news and we didn’t want you to miss out.

img_6065_32745641281_oOver years of traveling across the world, we’ve been able to taste many different cuisines. Food is always important to the culture and history of a destination. Today, we’re sharing a recipe from France from our friend Carine Rosalia, a French-American mother and Tea customer.  Here, Carine shares her recipe (and photos of her daughter making them in Tea) with us. 

Meet the Kids Featured in Our Catalog!

We make globally inspired clothing for little citizens, and twice a year we travel to a new destination for inspiration, adventure and lots of photos of super cute kids decked out in our newest styles. This season, our collection comes all the way from Australia. We trekked across this wild, wonderful country with some awesome local children. From Sydney to the Outback, the rainforest to reefs, we explored, learned, made new friends and laughed (a lot) – plus, we got some great photos to share.

We believe in making connections across the street as well as across the world, and we also went to Austin, TX for a second spring/summer photoshoot. We held a casting call at our first ever pop-up shop at TOMS Roasting Co., and met tons of amazing little citizens and their families!

“Alright, kids! Let’s get going. Remember, do everything I do. And make sure you walk around the emu poo!” And with that, Ranger Karen and her intrepid band of young explorers head off into the Aussie bush. Walkabout Wildlife Park, north of Sydney, is a wild and wonderful place where you can hang out with free-roaming wallabies and grey kangaroos, meet salty crocs and spiny echidnas and even pet a huge coastal carpet python named Yamba.
