While we’re on the subject of twee tea parlors, we have to have a word with MarieBelle. Love your mocha, but that practice you have of sprinkling fake rose petals (like they’re fairy dust) over sealed boxes of bonbons when you put them in the bag? It’s gotta stop. Yes, we love rose-petal doughnuts, and we’re reassured to see that someone can afford to burn through so many fake flowers (even if they probs came from a Greenpoint 99-cent store), but not even Franck, the wedding planner in Father of the Bride, could have dreamed up something this precious. Just stop it right now!
