Tea with Trista

The big day for Tea with Trista finally came and went and we have so many fun images to share! It was a great debut of the Trista Sutter clothing designs, as well as the MVB Fall designer childrens clothing pieces. We have lots to share and lots of people to thank, so here goes…

Tea with Trista was a whimsical event that combined the worlds of My Vintage Baby and Alice-in-Wonderland to formally launch the 2010 MVB fall collection. We celebrated the new line with a catalog release and live fashion show. We feasted on the finest and most delightful tea party food. We raffled and auctioned off a multitude of fine prizes for our fine guests. We had a candy bar, a live friend from “Wonderland,” a red carpet and a photo booth… and we had Trista!!! Could this get any better? Any more fun??

Doesn’t Trista look oh-so-cute? She also did a fabulous job before the event plugging the tea on WFAA channel 8’s good morning texas and with Mix 102.9 and Victoria Snee. You can view Trista’s television interview here. Be sure to watch for the awesome display of mdp photos to flash across your screen for a loooong time – thank you channel 8!!

Here is more of Trista with her troop of little winter rosettes:) Her line is called Winter Rose and is inspired by a 1950’s vintage tablecloth and her history with roses!!

Don’t forget this was all for a good cause too! My Vintage Baby Foundation is dedicated to supporting the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. We had representatives from the My juvenile diabetes research foundation present – what an honor to have them here to help kick off fall! A portion of the proceeds from Trista’s line will go directly to JDRF. Here is a JDRF local affiliate child in action with Trista!

More fun details to help set the mood for you…

Oh, and look who made a surprise visit??? Reality Steve and Jeremy from the Bachelorette!

Did we mention the crowd was Cuh-ray-zee over Trista??!!! Everyone wanted to talk with her and have their photo taken!! MVB Corporate even managed to get a shot here with our Corporate office team and Trista—
