Tea Time.

Tea Time.

Few months back went to  DarTealing Lounge for afternoon tea for my friend Steph’s birthday. A quaint little tea parlor, perfect for a fashionable little tea party with friends!

 Loved the decor of the shop. A mix of beautiful pastels, florals, vintage victorian prints, and soft hues. Such a warm, inviting, and fabulous parlor! 

Wanted a fun outfit for tea time with the girls. Chose a white peplum top with an oversized bow accent! wanted the look to be classic, fun, and ultra feminine! 

Threw on my Kate Spade skinny-mini bow bangle to accessorize! Felt the bows gave the look a whimsical touch! Always fun to have creative little details to keep your look youthful and imaginative!

Loved the mix of prints at the parlor! i enjoyed this houndstooth chair! very fun! paired my top with some bright coral skinnys to keep the look vibrant and forward! Kept it simple and comfortable with some nude flats, (You can never go wrong with nude!) Threw on a fun chunky gold/white necklace to complete the fit. 

I especially loved the cups and saucers! this particular one had gold trim and feather details against a pale pink. The mix and match of dishes gave the place a very authentic, vintage, and home-like vibe.

Cheers! even our boyfriends enjoyed a chill afternoon of tea, after a night out.  

Ladies with the birthday girl! 

The tea sandwiches were delicious! I especially loved the salmon & dill, curry, and honey lavender cream. This was one of the many pastry tiers served! 

novel cakes and french macarons! delightful! 

This parlor was all about the details. I appreciate all the little trimmings and pieces that contributed to the overall tea experience! 

straining! we ordered several teas with vanilla, strawberry, florals. I especially loved one titled breakfast candy

A wonderful tea time experience! Dartealing was definitely a fun and fashionable parlor from the food right down to the decor. 

Hope you enjoyed this mini-feature! 

above all else: Class,First.
