Sophisticated woman hard at work. They came and gave us they gave us a fantastic show and made these pictures quite amazing!


The event that Giggle and Riot attended was truly wonderful and the tea party event was just the right theme. Everyone was simply mad for tea haha!



I like pouring your tea, lifting
the heavy pot, and tipping it up,
so the fragrant liquid streams in your china cup.

Or when you’re away, or at work,
I like to think of your cupped hands as you sip,
as you sip, of the faint half-smile of your lips.

I like the questions – sugar? – milk? –
and the answers I don’t know by heart, yet,
for I see your soul in your eyes, and I forget.

Jasmine, Gunpowder, Assam, Earl Grey, Ceylon,
I love tea’s names. Which tea would you like? I say
but it’s any tea for you, please, any time of day,

as the women harvest the slopes
for the sweetest leaves, on Mount Wu-Yi,
and I am your lover, smitten, straining your tea.”

-Carol Ann Duffy

Cannot go wrong with a tea quote!
