Tea on our Summer Porch

                                                                           Hello everyone,
                                                              Now that summer is here I enjoyed
                                                              taking my afternoon tea on our
                                                             summer (screened) porch.I can
                                                             enjoy the garden from here and
                                                             watch the comings and goings of
                                                             the robins feeding their babies in
                                                             the Miss Kim lilac right behind me.
                                                                       I decided to treat myself to
                                                                      a few pretty cucumber sandwiches.

                                                                       The pretty teacup and
                                                                       saucer came from The
                                                                       Rosewood Cottage in
                                                                     My tea today is Vanilla Almond
                                                                     rooibos tea from Lady Bakers
                                                                     Tea Trolley sold locally at the
                                                                     Farmer's Market.
                                                                   A corner of our Summer Porch ~
                                                                   if you would like to see more check
                                                                   it out here.

                                                                    I used an old vintage sheet for
                                                                    the tablecloth.
                                                             Now that I have had my tea
                                                                      break, I am recharged and
                                                                      better get back to work but
                                                                      you can linger if you like!

                                                                     I am joining BNOTP for
                                                                     for Tablescape Thursday.

                                                                                       Thanks for visiting,

So pretty and those sandwiches are absolutely adorable! :) I am hosting a tiny summer party the end of July and getting excited by the planning of my menu and decor.

Your cucumber sandwiches are so delicious looking wrapped like that. The whole setting is so pretty. I looks like the Maritimes are in for a beautiful weekend coming up so we can enjoy our porches and gardens and decks.

Divine! Carolyn, I want to book a room! Lavender is my favorite color and nothing says tea time quite like cucumber sandwiches...with your extra touches they are delightful. Thanks for sharing this lovely post. Vickie

If your cucumber sandwiches are as much delicious as beautiful I think they were irresistible !
You've gave life to such a romantic corner in the nuances of mauve, so vintage !
Thank you my dear Carolyn, have a lovely day X

The little sandwiches are so beautiful, Carolyn, tied and decorated with the bloom. What a charming idea!

What a delightful tea it is Carolyn. I like the way you made the sandwiches. They look too good to eat :-)

Wishing you a happy week! Hope you, Andrew and your mother are still ok. I think of her now and then....

Happy week!
