Lavender Tea Time

                                                                               Hello everyone,

                                                         We are still enjoying lovely warm sunny weather here.....
                                                          perfect weather for an afternoon tea in the garden.
                                                                 I used a lavender and white bed skirt with
                                                                 a crochet lace tablecloth over it.
                                                                I made a trifle for a special
                                                                treat with our tea today.
             The china has shades of lavender
                     as well but once again mix and match.
                                                               I love transferware in all colors
                                                               but this color is hard to find here.

                                                                         This trifle was simple to make.....
                                                                         broken pieces of pound cake
                                                                         whipped cream,and a mix of
                                                                         fresh berries layered.

                                                                   It is a nice treat.
                                                                 Afternoon tea in the garden is
                                                                 always a lovely treat.

                                                             We have lots of hydrangeas blooming
                                                              in the garden now........which reminds
                                                              me I need to dry some for the winter.
                                                                           Shades of lavender.

                                   So, now that you have had tea and trifle,
                              maybe you would like to relax in the 
    hammock for awhile?

                                  I am joining Between Naps on the Porch
         for Tablescape Thursday.

                    Hope you have a beautiful day!

I had to laugh as I have the same bowl that is pretty much the one I always grab for trifle! Your table setting is lovely!

Absolutely beautiful! I love your purple transferware cup. I have never seen one like that.
