Romantic Garden Party II

Welcome to 
A Romantic Garden Party II

Hello My Dear Friends,

Today I have chosen a cozy and shady spot at the cottage for our Romantic Garden Party.

It is a very windy day at the cottage and the tablecloth will not stay in place.

My favourite  colours at the cottage are turquoise, white and  pink.
I am sharing a variety of china pieces today.

The teacups and the cream and sugar are all Aynsley.

One of the teacups has a pale pink inner cup and 

the other cup has a pale turquoise inside.

As do the cream and sugar bowl.

The white and gold trimmed teaplates are Royal Albert's Val D'or.

I hope you enjoy these  three layered mini chicken sandwiches. (My mother used to always make these  for showers and parties.)

Our dessert is a special angel food cake with pastel sprinkles. 

The pink and white roses are in bloom now!

Thank you for joining me for
"A Romantic Garden Party"

Have a wonderful week!

    Greetings from Ursula

  3. So many nice pictures. Everything looks beautiful. Love your choices on the china pieces you have displayed; especially the tea cups with the different inside colors. What fun!

  4. Lovely party today. I think those roses look extra nice in that special vase/pitcher. And that teapot is very special.

  5. Che meraviglia!una tavola così bella e romantica!I tuoi colori sono anche i miei preferiti!Li amo!Bellissima torta!Bellissimi tutti i particolari del tuo giardino!Baci,Rosetta

  6. The food here is delightful. I think this setting is so perfect and that netting cover is very fun for the sandwiches. You have a perfect tea time! Also the the teapot, cups and saucers are cream and sugar are lovely!

  7. A lovely tea party...romantic indeed! I love your china and the cake and sandwiches are delicious! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  8. Karen, I know what you mean by windy, believe me! You will rarely see a tea outdoors at my home because it is just too windy here.
    What a delightful setting! My favourite colours are aqua and pink too. I have had them in my home right up until recently when I changed the colour scheme. I will always favour those colours. Your teacups are gorgeous with their soft hued insides. The food looks wonderful too. I served chicken salad sandwiches and angel food cake to my aunt and uncle yesterday. We think alike, don't we? Thank you so much for sharing all this loveliness with us and joining me for my special tea party. Congratulations to your son and his new wife!
