CLOSED, WINNER ANNOUNCED TOMORROW…Tea Set from Rosanna Inc. Review and Giveaway
I am super lucky, or should I say my two daughters ages 8 and 9 are lucky little girls, to have had the opportunity to review this heirloom quality children’s “Tea For Me, Too!” tea set from Rosanna Inc. Each piece of this beautiful tea set is delicately made from stoneware, not too delicate for the smallest of hands. Like any other toy, small children should be supervised during play as these pieces are breakable.
The tea set arrived in the cutest box, each individual piece securely wrapped; what a great way to ensure this tea set stays in great condition. I was suprised at the quality of this set being a children’s tea set. Each cup is a different shape or style which reminded me of the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland. Along with the vivid pastel colors, this set is sure to engage your child in a world of make believe, at least for their tea party.
My girls have played with this set everyday since receiving it and let me tell you, to hear them chattering to each other pretending they are sharing tea and crumpets brings a smile to my face and warms my heart. They’ve even shared “Tea” at snack time, using water for tea, lemon juice for cream and a tiny bit of sugar to give them a more interactive experience. I probably shouldn’t tell you this because if my son found out he’d kill me but he asked if he could join the girls at their tea party and play with the tea set too and he’s 11. My girls usually bicker whenever playing together (awe, that sisterly love!) but since they have been using this tea set at play time, I have never seen them get along better. The Tea For Me, Too! tea set from Rosanna Inc. has brought my daughters together at play time and enhanced their sisterly bond. In the words of my daughters, thanks Rosanna!
Rosanna’s unique creations caught the eye of the press. Her initial collection was featured in Metropolitan Home magazine; since then, her story and tableware have appeared in numerous publications, including Lucky, Bon Appetit, Elle, Instyle, and O at Home. In 2006, Seattle Homes & Lifestyles magazine named Rosanna one of 100 top companies that defined design in the Northwest. Drawing international acclaim in the same year, Rosanna was awarded the prestigious honor of Gift of the Year by the Giftware Association in the United Kingdom.
Rosanna’s international business is run her out of a teeming warehouse in Seattle, Washington. More than 22 years and millions and millions of dishes beyond her first container, she now sends truckloads of tableware to destinations across the states and around the globe. Rosanna’s tableware crosses cultural boundaries, delighting people worldwide and encouraging the art and soul of entertainment-connecting with others and sharing memories along with food and drink.
Always on the hunt for ideas, Rosanna keeps her dinnerware fresh by constantly traveling, reading, observing, listening and being curious about culture, fashion and the world. She often looks to the runway for style suggestions, whether it’s the notion of layering, mixing and matching, the newest prints or the hottest hue. And as always, Rosanna savors what’s on the table, designing dishes around tasty trends from olive oil tasting to food and wine pairings. And it’s no surprise that Rosanna reaches back into her happy childhood for inspiration as well, creating instant heirlooms-fresh, modern takes on her favorites, to be enjoyed in the moment and handed down for generations to come.
