A White Rose Tea

Welcome Sweet Friends,
To a White Rose Tea
Since the restorations are still underway at home I am pleased to have another tea time at the cottage garden.
Today I am using a nesting table as our table;
I love the shape.
And an old chair that I found for $3.00 which I painted white,
And thankfully my white roses which are once again in bloom!
Yesterday my daughter and I attempted to make a cheese cake.  Would you like to taste a tiny sliver?
It's quite rich, isn't it?
How about  some tea to take away the sweetness?
I am using my Mason's Vista Demitasse and tea plate.

The creamer is really a vintage measuring cup.
The teapot you have seen before but it is one of my favourites at the cottage.

  2. What a darling vignette with that sweet table. Your tea set is really wonderful! And yes, pass the cheesecake as I love it!!!

  3. Hi Karen,
    Another pretty tea party! That strawberry cheesecake looks delicious and it looks really pretty on your red transferware too! Thanks for sharing!

  4. Hi Karen,
    Oh I love your red transferware! I have the Vista teacups and plates, but not the beautiful teapot you have! Your outdoor tea is so lovely! Wish I could join you!

  5. Love what you did with the little 3-legged stool. Did you make the cover yourself?
    Hope you had a pleasant BC Day.

    1. Hi Pamela,
      Thanks for the kind words. The cover on the stool is just a lacy doily. I wish I had your wonderful sewing skills to make something myself. Take care,

  6. Hi Karen,
    What a sweet, tea setting in the garden! I love your red transferware. The cheesecake looks so yummy and yes, delightfully rich.
    Happy Tuesday!

  7. Oh...this is one of the most beautiful tea setting i' ve never seen! Your red tea cups and tea pot are just gorgeous. The cheese cake is my favourite cake and yuor is so yummy...!!!

  8. Hello Karen,

    What a pretty post. This is the perfect spot for tea and you created the prettiest setting. Your china is very lovely. Thanks for coming to visit me. I do appreciate your lovely comment.


  9. Hi Karen: I think it is just amazing that this simple setting can look so beautiful and welcoming. Thank you so much for sharing. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha

  10. Hi Karen. Our renos are still ongoing in Vancouver too! It's wonderful that the weather is so fine that you can have tea outside and get away form them. Love the red service and it's brilliant that you used the measuring cup as the creamer. :)

  11. Such a beautiful setting Karen. Love the table and the chair! Your dishes are just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
