Tea Party Review

Hello everyone,
     Last year I did a tea party review so I thought I would do one of the tea parties that I had this past year.
Well,another year is almost over and I hope to enjoy many new tea parties with you in the coming year!
If you would like to see last year's Tea Party Review click here.

Today I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday.

Thank you for stopping in today.

Beautiful pictures and tea parties, Carolyn! I love the first one pictured although I'm sure it was chilly out!

Southerncook said...

Your tea party review was just amazing. I always draw inspiration from each photo you post. BTW, I found some pink transfer ware dishes in Tues. Morning a couple of weeks before Christmas and after seeing yours on your blog I could not resist. I think I am hooked???? You ARE an inspiration my dear. Have a lovely and HAPPY NEW YEAR celebration.

What a beautiful post! It would be hard to decide which was my favorite tea party, they were all uniquely special. Thanks for sharing, Laura

A Perfect Setting said...

Beautiful! Every single one. Beautiful. My favorite song, I am loving this! Happy New Year!!

Miss Merry said...

Gorgeous tea parties! I love the first one, but the party for the two little ones is just precious :)

The Sweetest Days said...

Absolutely divine, Carolyn. July would probably be my favorite as it looks like it's straight out of Victoria magazine, but I love them all.

Thank you for such a wonderful post! I'll be sure to add a 'star' to it on blogger Reader so I may revisit it again in the future ; )

Barb and Dell said...

Your tea parties are lovely. My favorites are the first one and the one of your little granddaughters.
Wishing you a Happy New Year.

My, this is such a lovely post! And the music is so perfect! I feel my blood pressure drop whenever I visit you! I so look forward to your future posts! May you have a blessed new year!

kay Moser said...

Thank you, Carolyn! What a pleasure to remember the year with you! I posted a link to your blog on my FB page, and my readers are already responding quite joyfully. They want you to start a magazine! And I agree, but doubt you have the time (smile).

You have been a blessing to me in 2011 as I have settled in my new (historic) home in Tennessee and started the process of reworking the neglected garden. Also, I bought my first red and white transfer ware and set my Christmas table with it. May God continue to bless you and your family!

CJ said...

Carolyn, Your tea parties must be the social event of the neighborhood. Love the use of the pink and white quilt, and picture of the two beautiful little ladies. You are gifting them with a lifetime of manners and gentile delights. CJ

Que o Senhor esteja a sua frente para indicar-te o caminho certo. O Senhor esteja ao seu lado para abrigar-te em Seus braços e para proteger-te.O Senhor esteja abaixo de ti para acolher-te quando caíres e para livrar-te do laço.O Senhor esteja em ti para consolar-te quando estiveres triste. O Senhor esteja ao teu redor para defender-te quando outros te atacarem. O Senhor esteja acima de ti para te abençoar. Assim te abençoe o benigno Deus em 2012.
receba o meu abraço mais carinhoso e toda minha amizade
