springtime tea party



                                   Sandi, at Rose Chintz Cottage, is hosting a
                                                  Spring Tea 
                                          for Tea Time Tuesday.


We have had some glorious spring weather here and are looking forward to more this week.  I'm afraid it won't last as it's
just too early for it in our area but, I will enjoy it while we have it!

Spring weather brings thoughts of new life ~ trees bursting into bud, spring flowers blooming, and green grass.  The birds are returning from down south and new babies are arriving on the farm.  The snow is melting and the rivers and streams are opening up from winter's icy grip.  It's a beautiful time of year!  It's a season of hope and expectation.

 I enjoy having friends for tea and love to use my pretty china cups.



I have set my table with an assortment of teacups in
greens and blues.



My teacups are all Royal Albert.
The blue one is un-named, the second one is Lily of the Valley,
the third one is Forget Me Not, the fourth is Trillium and
the one in the foreground is Debutante Series - Charm.


spring tulips from the grocery store (and from PEI where Sandi lives)


shortbread cookies are my favorite


ruffled edge pedestal plate from Pier One


pretty paper napkins


a sweet bunny all ready for spring


I love the pastel colours of spring.


Thank you for joining me for tea today.
I hope you will join Sandi as she hosts this wonderful
Spring Tea.  You will find a lot of other tea parties
over there.

Have a beautiful day!

Blessings,

Pamela

  1. Hello Pamela:
    How absolutely charming, and so pretty, this all looks. Any guest would feel so welcome, knowing immediately that a great deal of time and trouble has been taken arranging the table in such a way. Perfect.

  9. Ahhh, so enjoyable. I didn't know that shortbread cookies could be made to look so cute that way. Must try it. I, too, adore a good shortbread. If I were allowed to select my own tea cup, I'd love the lily of the valley one...so sweet and delicate.

    I'm not sure if this weather is supposed to last. I hope it might. We're already spoiled.

  15. Hi Pamela,
    You got my pink tulips! I was looking for pink and ended up with white because the pink was all gone. LOL! Your tea table is just lovely! I love the pastels and your teacups are all so pretty. We have the same bunny pitcher. I will be sharing mine one of these days. Your shortbread looks good too. I'm so glad you have joined me for tea, my friend. Enjoy this lovely first week of Spring we're having.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

    My friend Barbie tried to write to you on my iPad to see if it would lock up. Guess what . . . Worked fine, she wonders if it is my router?

  29. Hi Pamela! How delightful to meet you over at The Writers Reverie! So glad you stopped in to introduce yourself! I have thoroughly enjoyed all your beautiful photographs of your Canadian landscape - so beautiful - even in the winter. I especially enjoyed your hometown memories and the details about growing up in your house as a child. We're all waxing nostalgic in our day. I shall have to add you to my tea ladies list - an look forward to some beautiful photos soon!

    Joy!
