Last week, before leaving California, I had the pleasure of meeting Melissa of Ruby Press. If you haven’t seen her blog, definitely take a look – she shares such special things, and has such great taste. We met up for afternoon tea at the darling (and brand new!) Crown & Crumpet. Not only are the tea and treats delightfully good, but the place itself is a confection of stylish florals, chandeliers, and pink-and-white checkered floors. It is absolutely perfect for bridal showers and birthday parties, and I couldn’t help myself – I had to make an inspiration board with Crown & Crumpet in mind.
