Tea For Me Too Review and Bambini Boutique Giveaway

Providence, like me, has many varied interests. She likes to play in the dirt (literally) and get messy with the best of them, but she also enjoys being quite prim and proper. To a little three year old girl a tea party is about the epitome of prim, proper, lady-ness, making a tea set very desirable gift. Rosanna's Tea For Me Too Set sold at Bambini Boutique has whimsical qualities to make it most charming for any age, and keeping it not overly prim and proper for dear mother, who often does not keep the pinkie finger out while sipping tea. It also comes packaged in a hat box that can double as a table, makes putting away easy and will protect the set while looking adorable to boot.Providence was incredibly excited to open up the tea set, and needed to conduct a dry run immediately for a few dignified stuffed animals.


Each of the four cups and saucers are different and are perfect for tiny hands, though they can fit enough tea for adults to be able to stretch two swallows out of them rather then the standard one swallow that seems to accompany every other child's tea set. In the sets details it says the cups hold about 1 oz. When I measured, the deepest cup easily holds twice that (mommy claims that one), and the other three can hold between 1 or 1 1/2 oz.

Tea Parties can be fun way for girls (or boys too) to play and interact together, as well as a fun way to learn table manners and hostessing. In preparation for our tea party Providence practiced being a gracious hostess, making sure her guest's had tea before pouring herself another cup, wow thinking of others before herself? Big three year old learning moment. And of course the practicals, not talking with a full mouth, napkin use, yes pleases and no thank yous, etc. I actually noticed a markable difference with Providence's attitude towards sharing with her guests when reminded that she was a hostess.

Another item I received from the Bambini Boutique owner was a book called "Held in the Arms of Love" this is a special book including thought provoking questions to encourage and help you to hand write a letter to your child in the back of the book, to be sealed and given to your child on a specific date or occasion. Something generations can treasure.

Bambini Boutique also carries other items including many name brand clothes and shoes with free shipping on orders over $100.
