Afternoon Tea at the Ghirardelli’s Summer Home

My friend Sashee, the creator of Teadrops, invited Sophie and me over for afternoon tea this weekend. We learned that her property used to be part of the Ghirardelli family’s summer home—so crazy! Her kitchen nook is bright and cozy and filled with the prettiest tea cups.

She lives in the hills behind downtown Los Gatos, but with the tall trees and quiet surrounding her, her property feels like a hidden retreat.

We had French tea, baked brie, orange slices and salad—with lettuce from her vegetable garden!

It was fun having such a relaxing afternoon and catching up over tea. I love homes filled with history, don’t you?
