Happy Easter Tea

Hello Everyone,
    With the sunny days we have had lately I have been enjoying afternoon tea in our little sunroom surrounded by the happy colors of spring.
And of course some flowers and greenery add to the spring cheer.
Tulips always cheer me!

Gerbera's also add some lovely spring color.
The first blooms of spring are starting to poke through the ground.

Hope you can stay for a cup of tea!

White chocolate Easter bunny anyone?

I am so glad you stopped by for a little Easter cup of cheer!    

Today I am joining Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday
French Country Cottage for the  Bunny Blog Hop.   

Enjoy your Day!

Hi Carolyn,
I love this post. Of course I love all your beautiful photos. I just received my copy of May 2012 'My Romantic Homes' magazine. Wow!! "Fantasy Island" I'm so happy you and your husband are receiving such fabulous recognition for your hard work in your home and your garden. As you know PEI is on my bucket list of places to visit. I would love to have my granddaughters take the trip with me. Fabulous.

Lovely! I wish we had those flowers here as well, but our spring has decided to take a break and it's freezing cold in the nights here. We've also got snow and it's not at all nice. But we know what we will get later on, lol.
Hope you have a nice day.
Love Elzie

A charming Easter tea Carolyn. I had to chuckle when I saw the little white (droppings?) candies under the cloche with the white chocolate bunny.
We have a real one, although brown that is well fed feasting on my tulips in the backyard right now.
Happy Easter

Hello my friend,
Wouldn't it be fun to actually have tea together! I wish time would allow for me to take you around to some of my favorite places in FL. I know you would love Posh on Palm in Sarasota.
I just finished reading the lovely article in Romantic Homes about you. Congratulations.
Wishing you and yours a wonderful Easter and holiday.

Your sunroom looks like the perfect place to spend a spring afternoon, Carolyn! You've thought of everything, as always, and your guests would be fortunate indeed – wish I was one of them! I love the blues and yellows of the bulb collage.

Have a beautiful week and Happy Easter to you!

The first spring flowers in your garden look beautiful Carolyn! I can't wait to go to my garden again.

It has turned colder in Holland. We even had some frost at night. Hopefully the Easter weekend will be better so that we can spend some time outside.

A Happy Easter to you and your family Carolyn!

Lieve groet,
