A Summer Pink Picnic

            How is your week going? I am enjoying squeezing in some summer fun this week so how about joining me for a little picnic?

                   Scones, homemade strawberry jam and Devonshire cream are perfect with a cup of tea.
                   A sweet new book to enjoy-Thank you Cheryl!
                                                           More sweet treats?
                                            A nice shady spot to enjoy a picnic. Love the pompom trim on this
                                            vintage tablecloth.
                The potted hudrangea has some pretty pink blooms but also some mauve ones.
                                     Heart shaped sugar cookies and lemon crinkles.
                                                     Pretty pink teacups for our tea.

oatmeal scones and raisin scones.

               We are going for breakfast shortly with some good friends to Victoria by the Sea -
                           one of my favorite little villages. There is a nice new restaurant(The
                             Beachcomber)  right out on the
                             wharf with amazing views , good food and a nice little bakery-love those sticky
                             cinnamon buns!
                              I am joining BNOTP for Tablescape Thursday.

                           Thank you for your visit today.

                           Take care,

I love that picnic basket too. Glad it made one of the photos. Everything beautiful as always and I dream of being at one of our little picnics chez vous soon.

Betty said...

Everything is so pretty and what my Granddaughter would say a pink tea party. I really like the table cloth that you used.

Dear Carolyn,
Glorious! Pink Perfection. Charming tea-every bit of it. I especially love that tablecloth and yes, the pom poms give it that extra special detail.
Come visit us at Lady B's Time for Tea
Best, Ruthie
