Victorian Garden Tea Party


                                                                     Hello everyone,

                                            I hope your summer is going well......I can't believe how
                                           fast it is going.
                                                A few weeks ago I hosted a Victorian Garden Tea  for the
                                           Mikinduri Children of Hope. It was a lovely day and I met lots
                                           of nice people, both guests and volunteers in the kitchen.
                                               We set up our tables on the porches and the terrace and had
                                            a morning and afternoon seating.
                                                                          I  didn't get a chance to take a lot of
                                                                          pictures but  this table caught my eye.
                                                                           We served tea and scones with devonshire
                                                                           cream and apricot or rhurbarb preserves.

I always enjoy using my collection of
teapots and vintage teacups etc.
Small bouquets of flowers were on
each table. The deep pink rose is
Queen of Denmark and the pale
pink is a Snow Pavement rose.

                                                      I used lace tablecloths on the tables to
                                                      go along with the victorian theme.

                                                           The garden was enjoyed by all who
                                                             I am happy to have been a part of this
                                                            worthy cause and  happy as well that we raised
                                                             over $1500 for the Mikinduri Children of Hope.


                                                         Our heat wave is over and some much
                                                         needed rain is on the way today.
                                                                I will leave you with a pot of
                                                          tea to enjoy.
                                                                      Thank you for visiting!

A very lovely tea for a good cause. The tables are so beautifully set up. We are having a very dry summer here in Gaspe. It's raining today and that's a good thing. Take care..Thelma.

The Garden looks just beautiful. I can imagine sitting at one of your tables, and strolling through the gardens would be a real treat! And all for a good cause makes it even better!

Beautiful tea and worthy cause. I love the roses, and the preserves look delicious. We are fighting a massive forest fire in our city in Northern California, and the heat and smoke are awful. I would love to visit PEI and be refreshed and renewed.

Your tea party looks wonderful. How I would have loved sitting in your garden too. Thank you for not have ads in the middle of a post. I stopped reading your blog for awhile because I didn't like it interrupting the beauty.

Dear Carolyn:
I am sure you are resting now knowing all that is behind you and it sure was a lovely tea. The tables look so pretty and the views delightful!
