Tea Party Mode

                                                                         Happy weekend!

                                                     As some of you know yesterday I had my
                                                    Garden Party Tea with a lace & linens theme.
                                                                        It was the perfect day for the tea.

                                                                      And although it was busy for
                                                                     a few days ~ it was fun too.
                                                                     I am blessed with some good
                                                                     friends who came to help out...
                                                                     thank you girls!
                                                                    I enjoy the process of getting
                                                                    out my pretty linens and teacups.

                                                                     The tables were set on the porch.
                                                               Love finding ways to display my
                                                               china as I know many of you love
                                                               pretty china as well.
                                                                     And since my theme was lace
                                                                    & linens I had to display some
                                                                    pretty lace tea dresses as well.
                                                                  It was fun making up the bouquets
                                                                  for the tables as there are no shortage
                                                                  of blooms in the garden.

                                                       It was a great day and I will
                                                                  share more later but right now
                                                                  I have a neighbor coming over
                                                                  for tea so I am off to enjoy
                                                                  another cup of tea!


                                                                        Enjoy the rest of your

Oh, Caorlyn - I bet everything was truly amazing. I am so glad you had decent weather - and from what I see here on this gorgeous post - your guests weren't disappointed!

Hope you enjoyed your neighbor, and slowing down a tiny tad bit.

Looking forward to reading more! ♥

Olá Carolyn estava ansiosa aguardando as fotos e com certeza foi um sucesso. Imagino como deve ter sido bonito ver a exposição de suas porcelanas e rendas. Um bom domingo.

Oh Carolyn, I bet your tea party guests loved every minute of their visit in your lovely garden. Everything looks amazing.

I am sure you needed a days rest after that.

Have a lovely week,
