Garden Tea News


             Hope you are enjoying your day ~
            it is another hot sunny one here.
               I would like to thank everyone for
            their support on ordering tickets
             for my fundraiser Garden Tea ~
Saturday August 9

                    all tickets are now SOLD OUT!

                                                                  So, I will be busy picking bouquets.

                                                                       Getting out my prettiest china.
                                                                        using my teapots
                                                                         and prettiest teacups.

                                                                            Making scones.
                                                                           and preserves
                                                                           Setting my tables.

                                                                    Weeding the garden

                                                             getting my lace and linens ready.

                                              And finally getting out best Afternoon Tea

                                                        Before, I start in on that though we have
                                                        been busy getting the garden ready to
                                                        host our special Southern Gardener's
                                                       coming with Allan Armitage ~ a well
                                                       known professor of horticulture at the
                                                       University of Georgia, U.S. where he
                                                       teaches,conducts research and runs the
                                                       University of Georgia Horticulture Gardens.
                                                         He is also the author of several books.

                                                          They are coming to our garden on Friday
                                                        morning and touring several other gardens
                                                        as well.

                                                        Also, since the garden will be all tidy and
                                                         looking it's best, we are having an open
                                                         garden on Saturday evening 6 ~ 8 pm.
                                                         rain or shine for anyone interested.

                                                           I am joining Bernideen's Tea Time Blog
                                                           for Tea in the Garden.
                                                                              Thank you for visiting,

It is all so exciting, if only I could help you, Carolyn.

It's going to be gorgeous.

I wish you were having our perfect weather - 70s, blue skies, perfect.

Praying it cools down and is perfect for you this weekend.

Exciting news Carolyn, I'm so happy for you, company is the best time to force you into the garden and keep weeding. I should invite someone to my garden so I get the opportunity to get into it. Things have been so busy around here that my garden has been neglected, poor thing, just yesterday I noticed a weed that is 2 feet tall (ashamed) oh well. All your pretty things are going to be lovely in your garden tea, enjoy.

Jonell w Harrison said...

Ah yes, the dishes. I think my all time favorite must be those with the wide PINK BORDER. My intention is to find a few of those...all I would really need is maybe 4 place settings. That would be enough.

I'd love to have tea in your beautiful Garden, Carolyn!

Rosemary and Thyme said...

Oh how wonderful Carolyn. I am sure your guests will be delighted. I only wish I could be there to enjoy all the beauty and fun.

Gorgeous photos as always. They truly brighten my day.

Have a wonderful week.

My mother is turning 75 this year and her dream has always been to have a Victorian style tea party, I want to surprise her and in googling ideas I came across your site, do you cater to parties?

Carolyn said...

Hi Unknown,
I am sorry but I am not catering to parties.I only occasionally decide to have a garden tea party for a fundraiser for a good cause.
Hope your Mom has a wonderful birthday!
