Let's Have a Tea Party !

Hi Everyone,

I am dreaming of  a tea party today,
so maybe you would like to dream 
along with me!

Above, my friend Janice is doing
a little fluffing to the summer bouquets
on our porch.

                    Tea parties mean using lots of pretty

 And of course pretty teapots too.


 Bouquets are also a pretty addition
to any tea party.

And we can't forget the
food, sandwiches,scones
and desserts.

Raspberry coconut coffee cake.

Strawberry shortcakes are
always hard to resist!

Peach shortcake


Time to pick an afternoon
tea dress ~ hope you love

                                             Although we are having a stormy weekend
                                                        here this weekend, we know that spring
                                                         is on it's way.

                                                                     Hope you enjoyed our tea party
                                                                      and have a wonderful weekend!

Your tea parties are the most beautiful. I am a fan of your lovely tea dishes, and the flowers inside pitchers are my favorite.
Thank you for sharing. I will pin it.

Hi Carolyn,
I am looking forward to Spring also. I love your beautiful tea table, and the bouquets are amazing. Tonight we jump ahead to daylight saving time here in California and a few more days it will be spring. Today is my husband's birthday. He is 76 years old and going strong. Thank you for posting a beautiful tea time for me to enjoy.

What a delightful post, Carolyn! I love your porch and all the beautiful tea wares. The treats look scrumptious and the strawberry shortcakes look especially tasty in those pretty red and white bowls. It won't be long now and you can have more tea parties on your pretty porch. Wishing you a wonderful week.
