A Summertime Tea

Hello Lovely Ladies,
Today I have set tea for just one in a shady spot in the front garden.  I am in the mood for mint green and pink.

I am using a variety of china pieces. 

 The teacup is a pretty mint coloured Paragon with a large dark and pale pink rose surrounded by greenery.

I found this little mirrored table at Home Sense many years ago.  I loved the carvings surrounding the mirror on the top. 

 Do you see the reflection of the trees in the mirrored table top?

I found the dainty green chair at favourite consignment shop called "Champagne Taste" at least 10 years ago.

The pink annuals are a variety of petunia.

Thank you for sharing " A Summertime Tea" with me!
