A White Garden Tea!

Hello! I'm glad you could stop by for a visit on this beautiful sunny day. Today I am joining in on Susan's Tablescape Thursday.
I thought we would have our tea in this little enclosed garden as it is at it's best now.

Come and have a seat. I got these chairs and the table at Winner's in the spring. I love them!
This teapot also came from Winner's. I hope you like peppermint tea and rhubarb muffins.
I love this little bit of crystal catching the light.

Martha overlooking her garden-watching all the little birds coming and going.


I will pour us a cup of tea and then we can wander around the rest of the garden.
Thank you for coming and I know you will enjoy Susan's beautiful porch if you haven't already seen it and all the other participants as well. You can visit Susan here At Between Naps on The Porch.

What a beautiful peaceful place you have created. You have made every inch of what God has given you beautiful, from your home out into your beautiful garden.
Whenever I have a friend who has a garden question or needs inspiration I always send them to you.

Carolyn, This white with green color theme is so soothing. I think it's crisp and refreshing.
Lovely! Visiting then walking the grounds is good medicine for the soul.

I needed a break from the Kansas storms. Again there's thunder in the air.

Blessings,

HI me again Joyce what is the hammock fabric with the netting look Is that the hammock itself or a spread? Whatever it is it looks so inviting.

A lovely place for tea! Your pics are always gorgeous. I love visiting your blog, I am always looking for pics of the insideof your house too. It is so pretty! Hugs, ~cindy s~

Carolyn said...

Hi Joyce,
The hammock that you asked about is a plain fabric one with a bit of edging on the sides but I enhanced it with lace curtain panels. An old lace tablecloth would work too.
Thank you for visiting and leaving nice comments.

Hi Carolyn! Oh, I love your beautiful table in white ~ on your outdoors table and on those gorgeous flowering bushes! That tea pot is simply adorable with the little birdie on top. Yes, please, I'll have a cup and a muffin!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Janet said...

I love a Mock Orange and even though I haven't smelled one for years I can still smell its slightly sweet, spicy fragrance. Thanks for the reminder.

denisemarie said...

OMG, the table set belongs right there in that garden spot! I also love the teapot with the birdie on top.

My dear friend Laura MacLean is up there right now in Prince Edward Island visiting her mum on the farm that her brother runs. I don't know her maiden name but she and her husband John live here in Houston working for the Space program. It's a small world afterall...she says everyone knows each other there. :0)

Linda said...

Wow Carolyn I just love that teapot. I have a gift certificate from mothers day for Winners, I should drop by and see what they may have. I picked up at winners a cute iron table that I have in my upstairs hallway displaying my garden books. Thanks for the beautiful pics.

Carolyn, your White Garden Tea is sweet, sweet, sweet! And did I mention sweet? It's also precious! You made it look like a fairytale setting, one that every little girl dreams of. I love your taste in teapots - I have the same one. When I saw the little bird sitting on top of the lid, I had to have it! Thanks so much for leaving a comment on my blog - now I've found you, and will be returning again and again!
