Bloom Tea Garden

I was lucky enough to get invited to this womens networking club here in Florence called Y.A.W.N. (Young Anglo Womens Network), where I have had the pleasure to meet so many incredible women that are living & working here in Florence. In fact, some of my closest friendships have been formed because of this organization (Grazie Claire!). They meet once a month, usually for appertivos, fashion events, art shows, etc. This month we had the pleasure of having the Christmas party at my friend Michele Blackmons new tea house called Bloom Tea Garden.

Michele is from Los Angeles, but now resides in Florence full time. She fell in love with the city as much as I did, and decided to open this gorgeous tea house right by the Uffizi Gallery & Ponte Vecchio. The decor in this place is absolutely exquisite! She did a fantastic job of maintaining the historic integrity of the space, but has added her own modern design. Not only is it a soothing place to enjoy numerous teas, but she also has a contemporary art gallery inside the Tea House.

If you are visiting Florence, make it a point to visit her incredible shop, not to mention to try the delicious, good old fashioned, fluffy American cupcakes! (they are to die for!) Chiasso Del Buco 28 / Tel 055 219071 (Located off Via Lambertesca off the Uffizi Gallery).
