As summer begins to come to an end and hot tea-sipping weather takes hold once again, we can’t help but reflect back on what a beautiful spring and summer it has been. With the launch of our mini caddies at the start of the calendar year, we were able to see our teas at more weddings and styled events than ever before and impressed doesn’t even begin to summarize our reaction!
So many talented teams created truly extraordinary events incorporating Sloane Tea over the span of Spring/Summer 2017. Whether they served Sloane Tea, sent their guests home with mini caddy favours, or styled perfect place settings with tea as the centrepiece, we were endlessly inspired by the creativity and beauty we were included in.
As a nod to the changing seasons, saying goodbye to summer bridal showers and hello to the holidays, we wanted to share some of our very favourite styled event posts here with you!

A Floral Wonderland at Casa Loma
Turning the pages of Wedluxe, we couldn’t help but get lost in this floral wonderland wedding at Casa Loma here in Toronto. This stunning event is laden with vintage white decor, lavish centrepieces and a high tea themed cocktail hour, complete with a decadent tea cart. The more flowers, marble and tea the merrier, right?

A Spring Bridal Shower at The Chase
There is something about a bridal shower that can really start to make your big day feel real, especially when it’s a surprise! One of the first events leading up to saying “I do”, it’s so important to gather with those near and dear, and this shower really took the cake. Rose petals lined the gorgeous entrance to The Chase, one of our favourite venues in Toronto, and every detail was carefully styled. Our Signature Sloane Tea caddies were dispersed through the peony-filled floral centrepieces on each table, and mini caddy favours waited by the door. It was such an honour to be a part of this gorgeous special event.

A Garden Party Baby Shower at The Drake
This baby shower is extra close to our hearts, as it welcomed the new addition of our dear friends Sophie and Bobby, the artisans behind Kitten and the Bear! Hosted in The Drake Hotel’s newest addition to the city, The Drake Commissary, Sophie was surprised by friends, family, and a peony topped cake. In good company with Kitten and the Bear jam, Sloane Tea mini caddies topped with ivory ribbon were handed out to guests as the perfect take-home party favour.

The tablescape was set with vintage floral china, rose gold flatware, mismatched teacups, and finished off with our mini caddies, complete with a delicate tag that read ‘Thanks a Blossom’.
