Customers Respect Entrepreneurs Who Give Back

Today I attended a Tea Party with the ladies from my church. It was wonderful!  I was able to have some much needed fellowship, advice, and the best tea I have ever tasted!  

I think every woman likes to have tea parties because of what it symbolizes - royalty, chicness, and femininity.  I was looking around at some of the little girls and they were having more fun than the ladies were!  I just goes to show, you are never to old (or young) to enjoy a good old fashioned tea party.

I had only been to one other tea party prior - It was for a bridal shower.  Even then I thought to myself, I'd love to have one of these one day!  I think that I will soon.  I turn 30 this January and that would be the perfect occasion!
The scones were to die for. They were one of the best pastries I have ever had!  And the sandwiches were wonderful too.  They cut the crusts off and make them into little triangles.  I just think that is so cute!  It's settled, I'm definitely having a tea party for my next birthday!  I should have one next August for you all when iVi Scents turns 2 as well!

The tea party was a church event.  But I ended up meeting a lady who was very inspired by what I do.  I was able to speak to her and give her advice and that really made my day.  What event are you a part of outside of business networking?  Can you join a church group or other social club where you are able to give back to others?  This is so important in business.  After all, no one makes it on their own. Being a "self-made (wo)man" is a myth.  Thinking otherwise just makes you a selfish made woman.

  1. I love tea parties! I had a tea/nail polish party back in Feb. It was lovely!

    I have a bit of a tea collection too so it was fun trying them all with friends.

    If I lived in LA, I would so come!

    I need to host another one before the holidays!

    Glad you had fun :)

  2. I totally forgot that you have a tea collection! How fun! I should do the same!
