“Let’s try to imagine the scene: One morning in early spring, in a sleepy Renaissance villa in the heart of Tuscany, the sun shines bright and the sky is clear. A couple with an original taste and love of retrò look for a little party out of the ordinary to accommodate friends in a chic and relaxed atmosphere.
“Majestic oak trees in an Italian garden are a green oasis for a small tea party happening in the beautiful fresco rooms that overlook the Tuscan hills. This is known as an Italian-style tea party or should we say Tuscan-style tea party.
“The absolute beauty of the landscape coupled with art means decorations are not required! Nonetheless, small bulbs bloom in teapots, branches are collected from a nearby forest and placed in old watering cans. The atmosphere is intimate and cozy with tea services, old glasses, lace, Grandma’s sugar bowls, and silver. Somehow it all works seamlessly, sophisticated and a bit rustic.
“Walking under the oak trees and getting lost in the hallways – a romantic and memorable atmosphere permeates the air as you celebrate your wedding in Tuscany.”

“A few days ago I had a very nice day with my wedding planner friends, Maria and Letizia, at Villa Monsoglio near Arezzo, Tuscany. We spent all day shooting an inspirational tea party at the villa. The day was just perfect with the sun coming through the trees; the frescos on the walls were a perfect frame for ours photos. The most fun part was to dig around in the attic of the villa among old furniture and ancient objects, looking for something to use for our set. I wish all my jobs could be as fun as this one … love you girls!”
