Seaside Blue & White Tea

Hello everyone,

We are enjoying these beautiful
summer days here on the Island.

    It has been hot so the ocean breezes
are just what we need to stay cool.

I decided to have our tea today
by the water so we can
enjoy the view as well
as the breeze.

I am using blue & white
as my tea theme for today.

I love these Spode teacups.

This has been a great year for
blue hydrangeas but as much
as I love them I haven't had
a lot of blooms on mine so
I am a little envious of the
many shrubs that I see on
our drives in other peoples
gardens .

Anyway, I decided to make the
best of it by making a small
bouquet and photographing
them 100 different ways to
enjoy them all season!

We are enjoying the blueberries
from our highbush blueberry
bushes in our garden.

You can pick your favorite teacup.

I made a batch of blueberry scones 
for us to enjoy with our tea today. 

I hope you enjoyed our
seaside tea today.

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn, Lovely table setting with beautiful china by the water. It's been dreadfully hot here in Kansas. A cooling breeze would be welcomed. Thank you for the lovely post. Always a treat to stop by.

Such amazing and vivid blues! I can't imagine having huge gorgeous hydrangeas in that color coming up in my yard. Such a beautiful scene you have set.

The blue china is also lovely.

So so lovely photos! And really; is it still hot there?! 😮 We have got rain almost every day for august in Finland. Next week maybe frozen nights! 😳 It is so warming to watch your photos now. 😍
