Summer Tea Party (and a Tea Collection Giveaway x 4!)

This post is sponsored by Tea Collection, a longtime favorite company of our family.

We're switching around some rooms in our house, putting the girls in a shared room and giving Dash his own. This is a perfect Give a Mouse a Cookie scenario, leading to all sorts of other projects from a little wallpaper to closet purging. Any time I go through the kids' closets and trim things down to favorite, wearable pieces or pack up the clothes Lainey's grown out to save for Nella, I always land on Tea Collection favorites--as soft and colorful as the day we got them.

We've been wearing Tea clothes since Lainey was very little, and while they certainly offer unique style and globally inspired patterns, I'm drawn to their classic staples--comfy day dresses, stripe tees that pair with everything, soft ribbed leggings. We have long sleeve black & white stripe tees for Lainey and Nella from two years ago that we're still wearing. If only facial age cream companies could transfer what Tea's figured out in terms of keeping their cotton looking brand spankin' new!

(my favorite Tea pieces for the girls for this summer--currently on sale!:  Seaport Stripe Caftan Tee)

I love nautical colors, stripes and polka dots, and Tea Collection nailed it in all departments with their current summer stock.

Right now is a great time to shop Tea Collection--they've introduced their new line, inspired from travels to Germany, and they're running their semi-annual sale (with additional markdowns) with summer favorites like Saltwater sandals nicely discounted.

Tea's not new to the blog, but if you're new to Tea, you can check out some of the things we love about Tea Collection including how their designs are inspired and ways they give back.

Tea Collection is offering four readers some beautiful Tea goods.

One reader will receive a $150 gift certificate to Tea Collection and three readers will be able to choose any three Tea Collection items that will be sent to them.

Giveaway winners will be randomly selected from comments on this post which will remain open to comments until Thursday, 9 p.m. EST. Winners will be announced in Friday's blog post. Comments are moderated, so your comment will not appear right away. Please only comment once.

If you're commenting, let's make it interesting. Tell me, if you were to host a tea party, which three people from the past or present would you invite?

Love Tea collection and this new line! Want it all!

Liesel said...

Three of my brothers who live far away now. I would just love to spend more time with them!

Nadine said...

If I were to host a tea party, I would invite my brother, sister-in-love and nephew! They currently live in Tunisia and I don't get to see them very often. It would be nice to just hang out with my nephew (James) and catch up!

Meredith said...

Easy! My 3 daughters! :-)

Kristine said...

Hmm...a tea party for three - I'd choose my mother, sister, and Grandmother. A sweet time for family and ladies!

Star Owl said...

We love Tea clothing for our 2 and a half year old daughter. Most of the outfits are hand-me-downs and they looked and feel new.

Kelly said...

I would invite my mom, sister, and niece :)

Anna Lynne said...

Oh goodness, impossible question for the endlessness of the possibilities! So I'm going to have to stay simple and say my mom and my sisters...I live across the country from them and would give just about anything to have tea with all three of them again!

The Amos Family said...

Enter me! I would invite the Queen (so she could show us how to do proper tea), one of these ladies from Bravo's Ladies of London to keep it interesting, and my grandma (she loves tea parties).

Krista said...

I would invite Jesus bc He's my favorite and too intriguing... And then my two best friends who live far away :)

Lindsay said...

Three people... hmmm.... my grandmother, whom I was named after and lost too early & my mom & my sister. All my favorite people who I miss so much since moving to the West Coast.

Julie @ my tiny bookworm said...

If I were to have a tea party I'd invite, from the present, my best friend who I don't see nearly enough and, from the past, my dear sweet grandma and great aunt. They are gone now but I miss them daily. Whenever I have tea I think of those three.

As for the Tea Collection, we love it here too. Everything wears so well and is so comfortable.

Ray said...

I love Tea for my little one! I would invite Julia Child, Bill Murray, and Ellen Degeneres to the weirdest tea party ever.

Catherine Bogart said...

I adore Tea collection for the exact same reasons, their clothes look adorable and last forever. I also happen to love tea parties, especially with my two girls. If I could invite 3 people I'd ask my grandmother on my fathers side who passed away when I was a baby so I could give her a huge hug and tell her I love her, Sylvia Plath to make things interesting, and Julia Child for the food ofcourse!
Catherine

Emily B said...

I would have a tea party with my grandfather who passed away, my 19 month old son who would love my grandfather and my 98 year old grandmother who would so love to see her sweetie again.

Clark Family said...

We've only owned one piece of Tea Collection (splendid find at Good Will), but I loved the piece and have longed for more. If I could invite anyone, I would invite Mother Theresa, Gandhi, and Maya Angelou.

Magali Forsyth said...

I didn't know about this brand until you posted about it maybe last year or so and i am now hooked! It's modern but not over the top. perfect for...all the time!

Debby said...

If I had a tea party I would have my three granddaughters that live here in town attend. I'd love to have the one from out of state as well. The girls are 11, 8, 8, and 5. Perfect ages for the party and for the sweet clothes.

Sarah Stine said...

Vivian Maier - (past) I would love to see life and Chicago through her eyes....

Corey Booker- (present) to feel inspired and learn more about humanity... learn more about how I can continue to give back....

My mother - (past and present) to learn, laugh and love.... and to have her for just one more day.

Bailey said...

Antoine De Saint-Exupéry, Amy Poehler and Andre the Giant. That would be an epic tea party.

Ashley Squash said...

Hmmmmm. Good question: Hilary Clinton, Anne Boleyn and Rihanna.

Candace Crabtree said...

Love their stuff!! Pick me, please! :)

sheylo torrence said...

Love Tea!

A real tea party.. I'd invite Blake Shelton, Ellen and Ree Drummond. Would love to meet them all!

The Manrings said...

First fell in love with TEA clothes in a tiny little shop...the cutest... in Sedona.
i think i would invite princesses to a royal tea party....the beautiful Princess Diana, my two little princesses and if i could add a fourth...my grandmother. all of us wearing tiaras and drinking Lady Gray with milk. (my fav) xoxoxo

Cassandra Pettigrew said...

I would invite

Audrey Hepburn,
Grace Kelly and Judy Garland

Kathy said...

If I could invite someone to a tea party, I'd invite Laura Ingalls Wilder so that my daughter could ask her all the questions she has about her life.

LMU said...

I would love to host a tea party with my girls dressed in Tea (our favorite)!! The tea party would have to be girls like Anne Frank, Hellen Keller, and a little girl drom the present from a different background. All girls that my girls can look up to and learn from.

Jones Family said...

3 People are my grandma, my Dad, & my grandpa. I miss them all so much.

Abbey said...

My lovie could certainly use some nautical stripes and new Tea things!!

I would invite: the queen of England (because it's a tea, duh), my grandmother (my mom's mom who passed when I was little, and my best friend Ty (who passed away 8 years ago this October but today is his birthday..and he loved tea :)) .

Julie said...

I love buying their dresses for my nieces!

The Mostads said...

Oh goodness-that is a tough question! I would say you-Kelle Hampton, Jen Hatmaker, and Elisabeth Eliot. Women I love to read and think would be incredible to converse with while sipping tea.

Elizabeth Peterson said...

I would invite my sisters. I know they are not celebrities or famous but I don't get to see them very often and they are the most important to me. I would probably also let my girls come along. :)

Trini said...

Which three people? Only three?! Wow. Okay. I've loved Jane Austen's literature since I was fairly young. And you can't beat the high-waist dresses and gloves, can you? I would probably invite my favorite musician (Emily Bear); I've already met her but she's really sweet and is really good for conversation. And I'd probably invite Frances Hodgson Burnett because she taught me that "all girls are princesses."

Jessica J said...

It's so hard to pick 3 people out of all the individuals from history and alive today to meet or spend time with. I guess I won't hurt my brain over it, and I'll just invite Biz and Thereasa from the podcast one bad mother so I can vent about being pregnant and uncomfortable, and Mike Birbligia- 'cause that guy is funny.

Dawn said...

If I were to host a tea party, I'd love to invite: Eleanor Roosevelt, Corrie Ten Boom, and Hillary Clinton. I can imagine the brilliant and inspiring conversation we'd enjoy for hours!

Ashley Howard said...

From Ashley-

My granddaddy- raised my mom and us like we were his even though we were "steps", wish he could have met my kids.

One of the founding fathers- not sure which, I would just love their perspective on how their words are interpreted today!

Alan Rickman- just to hear him talk! Maybe he could read Harry Potter out loud to us while we drank tea!

Jessica said...

The three people I would like to have tea with? First my dad, who died during my engagement. The second person would be my husband's late father, who never got to meet my dad. The third person? Who cares? If my dad and my husband's dad were sitting with me drinking tea, I doubt I would even be looking at the third person!

Kate said...

I LOVE Tea Collection! Found them from you and Kristen Howerton, so well done, Tea, for choosing good bloggers to sponsor. I have spent many dollars with you thanks to these two ladies!
I would love to have a tea party with: Oprah (who I actually was in the same room with and I literally petted her as she walked by) and my two sweet nieces, Megan and Clara.

Paige said...

I have tea with my grandparents.

Heidi Castro said...

If I could have tea with three, I'd pick my baby boy who left us too soon, my grandpa, and my husband <3

Suzanne said...

Would loves to try out tea.

Lisa said...

Hmmm... Can it be a fictional person? I kind of want to have tea with Mary Poppins :) Also, I'd add Maya Angelou and my grandmother

Kate said...

My three amazing children.

Joy said...

I have a couple of their dresses that I've picked up at consignment shops and adore. I can always pick them out in the sea of clothes because of their truly stylish colors.

Mrs. Sullivan said...

Fingers crossed!

I would invite Louisa May Alcott, Lucy Maud Montgomery and my mother. My mom lives far away and I only see her once a year. Sitting down with authors she introduced me to would be a dream come true.

Anne said...

Anderson Cooper, Jeff Probst, Kelly Ripa

scarlett rigby said...

I would only want to have tea with one other person...my dad. He passed away when I was 22 and I would love to just sit and have tea with him one last time.

Brooke said...

I love Tea Collection! And I would love to have tea with Jane Austen, my grandma, and my best friend from high school.

Alison said...

My dear, sweet grandma, Judy Blume, and Hillary Clinton. It'd be quite a party!

Jessica said...

I have been wanting to buy some items from the Tea Collection! I'd love to have tea with Queen Elizabeth I, the Beatles and Michelle Obama.

Allison said...

Love Tea! I'd like to have a party with my two little buddies.

Lisa said...

Gary Larson, C.S. Lewis, and Audrey Hepburn.

Ryan and Amber said...

Oh La La - what a tea party! I would choose my beloved Grandma A who resides in the Heavens, along with my little men. Who would need some time with Grandma to learn all about life.

Sarah said...

I loved reading whom people would invite. Mine would be my mother in law who never knew my daughters and my two daughters (but if you need all from the past I'll say my grandmothers, too).

Samantha said...

I would invite Oprah, Tina Fey, & Taylor Swift!

Heidi said...

Oh, we love Tea Collection around here. I don't know why I bother to buy anything else, to be honest.

If I could invite three people to a tea party, I'd invite my late Nana for whom my daughter is named after and whose china we have, my five-year-old daughter, and ??? I have two sisters, so I can't choose one of them :) So probably my niece who is only 15 days younger than my daughter. We would use my Nana's beautiful china and have a lovely time.

They Call Me Lady said...

Easy. My mom, dad and grandma. I miss them everyday.

Christina said...

A tea party, eh? I would say my grandmother (who died from lupus waaaay before I was born - back when my dad was only 17), Ann Voskamp, & my dear friend Stefanie who moved to New York last year.

anne p said...

Barack Obama, George H. Bush and John F. Kennedy

Argyrie said...

I would invite my husband who passed away in 2003 even though he hates tea, Nikos Kazantzakis and Ann Frank. For the first time in my life I'd be speechless and spellbound listening to their stories.

SarahinSalem said...

Tea party...a couple friends from college I think. They love tea parties and all things pride and prejudice.

Victoria said...

Laura Ingalls, Anne of green gable, and Princess Diane. Love Tea and your blog!

Jinxy said...

My favorite Aunt, My Pop who I miss very much and my Memaw who lives in CA and I miss her a lot too.

Mary Williams said...

If I could invite three people to a tea party... easy... my father who died when I was 6, my mother so I could watch both of them still so in love, and my daughter (20 months) so she could me her Papaw. I wish I could bring my hubby too!! ;O)

Patti said...

Michelle Duggar, hands down. :)

AbbasGirl said...

We love tea collection! A tea party with my three best friends from college would be a fun reunion!

Carolyn said...

Oh, please, can I have 4? I would invite my 4 grandparents. I got to know them all (to some degree) as a child but would love to get to know them as an adult!

Jordan Fronny-Fron said...

If I were to have a tea party, to begin, I would invite Elizabeth II, Queen of the Known World (only this realm because she can't ride a dragon to Westeros). She's been attending tea parties for the better part of 85 years, so she'd keep it proper and probably has sweet finger sandwich hook-ups. Second, I would invite Alanis Morissette because she's a perfect Canadian nugget of feminism, loud, bold feelings, and I want to know if she would indeed go down on someone in a theatre. Finally, I would invite Paget Brewster because I am a goofy fan and she serves as an inspiration for me. She also does a mean Audrey Hepburn impression. Honourary mentions to Bruce Springsteen (from the '70's; that man had quite the bootymeat), Maya Angelou (oh, her beautiful words), and Cheryl Strayed (READ HER BOOKS IMMEDIATELY. YESTERDAY, EVEN!).

Thank you regardless of the outcome, and all the best to you and your beautiful, fashionable family!

Unknown said...

Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, and my friend Meredith. No tea would be had, but the laughs would be epic.

Missy said...

I would invite my brother who passed at 33 years old 14 months ago, my Ammy (grandmother) who also passed and my mother who grieves everyday for my brother. My daughter would LOVE the clothes from Tea!!

Melissa Watt said...

Oh, man, the pressure of having to choose three in a hypothetical scenario! Gosh...my grandma who passed away 2 yrs ago so she I can tell me all about heaven while Michelangelo draws/sculpts my portrait, annnddd..... Jimmy Fallon to make me laugh at the ridiculousness of the whole thing! Geez, that was hard.

Jane said...

My great grandmother, my Granny and my mom. Perfect opportunity to learn more about my Irish heritage.

Amanda J. said...

Yay great giveaway!!!! If I had a tea party I would invite my grandmother who past away two years ago and ask her a million questions about her life. I would also invite a dear friend all the way in Australia. I would love to meet her in person! And last but not least John Lennon :)

Lori said...

Johnny Depp, my grandmother who passed about 12 years ago and it's a toss up between Ellen DeGeneres or JK Rowling

Tamela said...

Love, love, love Tea collection. The three people I would invite to a tea party would be my momma, her momma (my grandmother), and my momma's momma as I was never able to meet these two amazing women. I thibk having four generations in one room would be really cool. Also to see where my momma and I get our manurisiems. Thank you for the opportunity to win the give away!!

MonicaJ said...

Mother Teresa, Princess Diana, and Jesus

jeskmom said...

The dowager countess on Dowton Abbey (otherwise known as Maggie Smith, but she'd have to come in costume and with her imperial air in place), my friend Mandy who is English by heritage but likes to shake things up, and my sister, Laurie, a PhD in Linguistics who loves the nuance of language almost as much as she loves the tradition of tea.

Kaitlin said...

Oh! My grandpa, so my partner could meet him; an old friend from high school that I've lost touch with and can't track down with current technology; and my partner, because she's amazing and I want both of the previously mentioned people to know her :)

Thanks for hosting!

suzi kern said...

Elvis, my husband and Bryan Cranston. It makes sense when I think about it lol!

Nicole said...

My Grandmother whom I never met (she passed when my Mom was only 7), My Mom, and maybe Oprah!

chrissy said...

My grandma Bonnie was my biggest advocate when I decided to marry my beautiful husband. I knew what she most wanted in all the world was to see me have a baby. She died one year before my son, Dylan, was born, He just turned one, and with every pink rose or windy afternoon I think of her and how much she would have loved my son. And I tear up thinking how much I would have liked sharing being a mom with her. I have so many questions for her I never thought I would have. I would invite her, my grandpa (her husband) who died when I was just 6 months old, and my other Nana who died just in time to hear I was pregnant. I wish they could have met my beautiful son and shared being a mom with me.

Diana Kozlowski said...

I would invite Oprah because, well, she's amazing. I would then invite my best friend Sara because no party is complete without her. Lastly, I would invite my Gramma because man I miss her.

Nikki said...

How fun! I would invite my sister and best girlfriends to a tea party. These women inspire me, support me, challenge me, comfort me and keep me going. I wouldn't be who I am today without them!
Thank you for a fun giveaway!

Stacie said...

I would look e to have tea with my 3 grandmas. My biological maternal grandmother who I never got to meet, my maternal grandma who was the sweetest itty bitty thing, and my paternal grandma who I did not appreciate as much as I should have when I was young. Now that I have kids, I don't know how she raised 5 boys and a girl and I KNOW she would have great stories that I'm now old enough to value.

Beth said...

My grandma, grandpa, and my kids(I know that's four)...I wish my grandparents could have met my kids.

Kristie said...

Maya Angelou, Mark Twain and Oprah of course

Kary Glawe said...

If I were hosting a tea party I'd have my grandparents and my son so that they could meet each other. He looks at their pictures and knows about them, but I'd love to see them love each other, if just for a day.

LaRona said...

Kelle Hampton
Kelly Cach
Valerie Schatz

Courtney said...

Hmmm, probably Maya Angelou, Ellen, and Queen Elizabeth I. :)

♥: Polly said...

Love, love, love Tea Collection for my 6 and 2 year old girls! Such great quality and so beautiful! Thanks for the opportunity!

A tea party with my grandparents would be wonderful! I know that you requested three people, but I never knew my grandfathers and I would just love to see them with my grandmothers...holding hands and telling stories...so sweet, I imagine. Oh, or one with my mom and her parents and one with my dad and his...geez, the possibilities are endless! xx

Stacey W said...

Love this giveaway! I would invite my grandma ( who recently passed away), my sister and my mom to my tea party!

Mandy said...

Jessica said...

What fun! I have never purchased from Tea Collection, but always love the items you highlight here on the blog - and of course, always love how your three children are dressed!

If I were to host a tea party, I would invite Kate Middleton (gotta have a Brit at a proper tea party, right?), Robert Frost, and my grandmother - who passed away in 2005 - and whom I wish I could have back for just one more day to ask all the questions I never had a chance or thought to ask before she was taken from us.

Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

Jen said...

My mom who died 10 years ago and use to take my now 22 year old to Ritz for tea, Mother Theresa who I met when I lived in India but was too young to appreciate who she was, and Audrey Hepburn (who would have enjoyed both of the others)

Michelle said...

I love me some Tea! Let's see, I would invite Laura Ingalls for my daughter, Jordy Nelson for my son (he's a Packer's fan), and Billy Crystal for me. I like people who make me laugh :)

Angela Fernandez said...

My mom, my grandma, and my best friend!

Jennifer said...

My husband and our two kids. But our 50-years-in-the-future selves.

Megan said...

I would invite my mother-in-law, my mom, and my sister. And we love Tea clothes - they are so cute and hold up really well.

Bekah said...

Easy peasy...I'd invite my dearly missed grandmother and my two girls. Nothing would make me happier than for them to get to meet and know the amazing woman who I miss every day!

Ashley said...

I would invite the Grandpa and Grandma that died before I was born and who I never got to meet. I've heard such wonderful stories about them all of my life.

Kelly said...

Kaia said...

Oh, man, tough question! The Queen, since tea just screams England, and we might as well do it right! Funny timing on this.. just a couple days ago I decided that all my nieces/nephews baby gifts will be Tea clothing from here on! This would give a good start :)

Heather said...

You (I love the way you think!)
Anne Morrow Lindberg (Did I spell her name right?)
Lucille Ball

Caitlin said...

My grandmothers...sure do miss them. And my son, so they could meet. Though I think, in the terrible-twos-come-early, he might be a less than genteel tea party guest!

Kickyboots said...

My mom, my childhood best friend, and Lucille Ball.

DEAKL4ever said...

My Grandma, my Great Grandma and my Daddy; it would be a great tea party.

Josh_n_Connie said...

I would invite my best friend from college, my mom, and my mil!

Britt Emmons Ricardo said...

For my tea party I would invite my two beautiful grandmothers who have passed, one very recently. Neither one were able to meet my little daughter and it brings tears to my eyes to think how in love with her they would be.

Meredith McIlrath said...

The options are endless... but Tina Fey for laughs, Joan of Arc for some girl power, and Mother Teresa in hopes some of her goodness would rub off on me :)

hzeebee said...

I would have to say first I would invite my Great Aunt Joan (who had passed). She was from an different era and knew how to appreciate a tea party. The other two people would be my mom and dad. They live quite far away and its some times more than a year passes before we can see each other. We are due for a get together...

Carrie Viso said...

Love Tea Collection!
My Tea Party would include my mom and two daughters!.

Cheri said...

Michalina Peterson said...

Cher, Madonna and Michael Jackson, cause he's bad! and you know it!

Amber G said...

I would invite my mother and my daughters, Brooklyn (10) and Emerson Lily (6).

Jenny Mann said...

My grandmother, my great grandmother and my daughter. Thinking of being with the three of them gives me goosebumps, what in wouldn't give!

HollyElise (TropigothMama) said...

Oh, we could so rock some Tea Collection basics in this house! I'm thinking those cute stripey t-shirts would work well as hand-me-downs from sister to brother :)

If I were hosting a tea party, I'd invite Gail Carriger (author of the Parasol Protectorate series), Jillian Venters (author of Gothic Charm School) and Jane Austen :) Three lovely tea-loving ladies who would have EXTREMELY interesting conversation!

Maryann said...

My Mom and my friends Sue and Marilyn.

Sandy said...

I would invite Gregory of Nazianzus, Emmelia (his best friend's mom), and Jesus. What can I say--I'm finishing a dissertation that deals with ancient Christian marriage! It would be a tea party where they could answer my questions in person!

Meg said...

My grandmother and my daughter, because I would have loved for them to have met before my gramma died. And then I was going to say Hillary Clinton, but it seems unfair not to include my mom in this grouping, so, sorry Hillary!

Rochelle said...

I would invite my daughter who has yet to attend a tea party, my grandmother in law who was a spunky, hilarious, spirited and mildly inappropriate lady, and Kate Middleton so she could teach us how to properly have tea. (Plus I think she's just adorable!)

Kimberly said...

I would invite my Mom, my husband's dear, weet Grandma Connie who passed away two weeks ago, and Laura Ingalls Wilder.

Ani said...

I would love to host a real tea party! I've never done that. I'd invite my grandma, my mom and my sister. We're never in the same place at the same time. I hope I win some fun Tea Collection goodies!!

Sara said...

Love Tea collection for my daughter!!! I would invite my grandmother(that passed before I was born), Jessica alba and john Mayer and his guitar!!!!

Heidi said...

Love Tea! I'd invite my grandma, for sure. I miss her and want to talk to her more. I've been trying to think of a few others, but really, I'd rather just pick my mama and my sisters. If I couldn't squeeze a fourth, they'd have to flip coins or duke it out for the spot. There's no one I'd rather have at my tea party!

Mark, Wendy, Dale and Rose said...

My mother, daughter and grandmother.

Whitney McMichael said...

I would love to have tea with Sarah of Nurshable, Nici of Dig, and Alanis Morrisette. Oh, I would soak soak soak up every drop of wisdom I could from these amazing women!

Laurie said...

My mom who makes me tea every time I'm with her and my 2 daughter's (3 and 6) who adore tea parties! Love their line of clothes!!!

Allison said...

So fun! I'd love to invite my grandma so she could have met my daughter, and my grandpa so I could meet him. Then perhaps Jesus, because that would be cool ;)

livingms said...

My best friend, Jane Addams, and Elisabeth Elliot

rowing up we did something called scary and fancy tea party's. They were always fancy, but the scary part...not so much. Usually sugar skeleton bones were had. I'd invite my two sisters and three brothers. . . can't keep it at only three or it might get really scary

I would invite Andrew Jackson, Oprah and Paula Deen. These are the three that I would invite. - shaunie at twitter.com/sandyhills25

layne said...

Oh! What a great giveaway! My nieces sure would look cute in their clothes!

I would invite Oprah, Joss Whedon, and my grandmother Nanny, who died when I was 7 and is my most favorite person in the whole world.

Emily said...

I would have a tea party with my grandmas and mom. :)

Joleen Denman said...

I would love to have a tea party with you Kelle, I bet conversations with you are super entertaining! Then I would invite my grandmother who has passed, and if I could fast-forward my daughter from her current 18 month age to an 18 year old I'd love to include her and to see the woman she will become.

Angela said...

I would invite all my favorite girlfriends and make it fancy. It would be a blast!

Piper said...

I would choose my dad because he's been gone for almost 8 years now and I'd love to hear his voice again. And the other two would be my two kids, because they didn't get a chance to meet their grandpa and I know they would love him and his jokes and visa versa.

Tricia said...

What a fun idea! I would invite- my Grandma who I'm named for but whom I never got to meet, Pope John Paul 2 and King Tut!

Alyssa said...

MY beautiful mama and 2 daughters make a perfect tea party!

Carmen Van Deursen said...

I would invite my sister, my daughter and my son, the three most entertains people I know.

KellyS said...

I love Tea! What a great giveaway.

Becky Rodli said...

I would invite Esther and Ruth from Biblical times and my mom!

Ashley Briggs said...

That would have to be Kurt Cobain, Martin Luther King Jr, and Ab Lincoln. I'm working on my Masters in History and I admire all of them.

And if my girls attended the tea party with me, I'd love to share it with them.

Aleta said...

I would invite my mom and my two brothers in heaven just so we could all be together again for a while!

We also love tea collection. It's becoming an addiction....their stuff is all so cute!

Crystal Kupper said...

Corrie ten Boom, C.S. Lewis and Louis Zamperini.

chris said...

I have to invite four: my three children, and my mom, who died when my eldest was one month old. She would be so amazed, amused, and proud of my brood.

Stephanie Green said...

I would invite my Grandmother (she is my bestie) my Mom and my Grandmas mom. I have always wished I had the chance to know my Mothers, Grandmother. That would be the most perfect Tea Party for sure.

barrentree said...

hmmm, i would have a tea party with my two younger sisters and my mama. i live 2000 miles away from all of them and miss them so much! :-)

Katy said...

LOVE Tea collection!
If I had a tea party, I would invite my grandma, grandpa and my husband's grandpa- 3 people who left this earth before I got to meet them!

Lisa Bluemel said...

Princess Diana, Anne Frank and my sister. {And I just placed my first ever order with Tea. A few new T's for my girls to take on our trip to the East Coast in a week!} :) Happy Summer!

I love Tea clothes. They are so soft and last through multiple children very nicely.
I would invite both my grandmothers because I never knew them, my mom and if I could do a fourth I would also include my sister. My mom lost her mother when she was 5 years old so I would love for my mom to get to know her and while doing so I would get to know her. My other grandmother passed when I was one so I would love to meet her also.

Thanks,
Lisa

The Griggles said...

I would invite my two little girls, Olive and Gillian, and my best friend who we now live 3,000 miles away from. I know I could invite ANYONE...but these three are the most fun people I know!

Kelly Cach said...

Well, since I so desperately needed to talk tonight (and cry my heart out) to fellow mamas who would truly get where my sobs come from, I'd say You, Patti Rice, and Laura Luyt. Those would be from my real life. But if I was to dream a little, without the sobs, I'd choose Audrey Hepburn, Katherine Hepburn, and Caroline Ingalls ;).

samke23 said...

Emily Dickinson, Darwin, and Stephen Colbert.

andre said...

I share your love of Tea clothing! It's gorgeous and lasts amazingly well. I would invite just two to my tea party - my two best cousins. We used to spend holidays together all the time, but haven't been together in way too long!

Rae said...

So, tea party, I think British, so...tom hiddleston, Benedict cumberbatch! and martin freeman. That counts, right? I'd just want to listen to them banter.

athena said...

If I were to have a tea-party I'd invite my sweet Grandpa who I miss so so very much, my father-in-law, who died when I was just 7 weeks pregnant with our only child and Angelina Jolie because I think her and I would be good pals if we knew each other.

Cindy Alfino said...

Sherbit, 3 people. Hmmmm. Probably my besties Liz, Zoe and Kirsty. If they were famous I would just sit there dumbfounded and unable to talk to them ;)

growMama said...

My tea party attendees would include Joan of Arc, Emma Goldman and Vandana Shiva. There'd be dancing, visions, swordplay, conviction and laughter aplenty!

jojosweets said...

I would love a tea party with Jesus Christ, my dear Grandma Helen from Heaven and the best lady in the world- my mom. Love

medina family said...

What a great idea! It would definitely be my mother and two grandmothers, all who have passed away. Now that I'm a mom of four, I'd love to have their advice, support, and encouragement.

Leslie said...

My mom who lives 12 hours away, my grandmother who passed away 8 years ago and maybe julia Roberts because I just adore her!

Kim Carney said...

I am dull, I would invite my three best friends from az who I hardly use anymore!
That would be enough for me!
Kim

Katie said...

What pressure to choose! I would choose my best friend, my mom, and Rainbow Rowell (loving her books at the moment).

Kristen Silvia said...

Wow, we love Tea! Actual cute boy's clothes!

Though question, since I just started writing an hour away from my kids I'd have to say them. I leave when they're on bed and come home just in time to kiss them sweet dreams. I'd love a tea party to hear all about their days.

Jill said...

My husband, my dear friend Elaine, and Jesus

Southern Gal said...

I would invite my grandmothers and my husband's grandmother to a tea party. I miss those women so much.
Thanks for the chance to win great clothes for my granddaughters!

KTG said...

I love tea collection my daughters and my grandma would be invited if I hosted a tea party!

Andy and Jenni said...

Oh, that's easy. I'd invite my daughter, Celia, who died two years ago, shortly before her fifth birthday. And I'd invite her younger brothers, Tuck and Tollie. It'd be a dream come true for the three of them to get a chance to know each other.

Angela said...

Fun! My girls are at the perfect age for a tea party. So aside from them, I would invite my brother (he passed away 21 years ago). I would also invite my Grandma because she was awesome and had the best laugh. And my Mom because I can't think of a better reunion than my mom with her son and her mom.
