A Happy Easter Tea

Welcome Dear Friends to

"A Happy Easter Tea!"

I am very excited to participate in Sandi's special Easter Tea.

Today I am in the mood for rosebuds.

This dainty Elizabethan teacup which is Made in England has a lovely pedestal teacup base with a embossed centre. 

 It is covered  with a small pattern of sweet rosebuds and greenery. 

A pretty rose bud is on the top of the inner cup.

This teacup is also an Elizabethan and Made in England.  This pattern of the flower is larger but the shapes of the cup and saucer remain the same.
Both are trimmed with rich gold gilt.

I found this coral rose decoration at the dollar store and loved it's cheery tone.

The Aynsley cream and sugar are also covered with  rosebuds.

As are the  Aynsley tea plates.

The teapot is Made in Japan.

Help yourself to some almond sponge cake with orange pekoe tea. My son's future mother-in-law made it for us today.  It is sooo delicious!

Thank you for visiting me today dear friends for

Wishing you and your family a Blessed Easter!

  4. Hi Karen,
    Your Elizabethan teacups are gorgeous. I love the shapes of the cups and the tiny roses on the first cup ... so delicate. Very romantic! Lovely teascape. Happy Spring. Happy Easter and Happy Tea Day!

  5. 'Morning Karen,
    What a sweet tea table! I love your rosebud theme! Very dainty and so pretty for an Easter tea. That sponge cake looks delicious and I like the green colour. Thank you for coming to my Easter Tea and have a lovely week. Happy Easter, Karen!


  6. Love all your rosebuds! My best china has a rosebud design and I love yours! The floral ornaments are lovely! The cake sounds delicious...I love almond, and what a springy green to complement the rosebuds! Perfect! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea and Happy Easter!

  7. Love the roses. And that almond cake looks delicious.

  8. A delightful tea table, and I like the shape of your teacups.

  9. My you sure have a glorious table set for tea. I guess right away that the teacups and saucers were Elizabethan. (I have some in my shop) Did you by any chance use any of the photo programs like Picassa. I lost all my pictures too in December when I got a virus and had to get a new computer. However, when I redownloaded Picassa - it brought back into my computer all the pictures.

  10. This a sweet tea table with all the roses. Your pretty pink carnations add a lovely centerpiece. The cute Easter sign creates a bit of whimsy for this pretty party. Have a great week!


  11. This is such a pretty pink Easter tea! Those teacups are beautiful and I really like the Aynsley plates. Almond sponge cake does sound (and look) delicious!

  12. What a lovely Easter tea! I think the rosebud china and tea cup is so romantic, and the other rose cup too, is just lovely. Real delicate beauty. The table looks very nice all set for Easter. The sponge cake looks delicious! That was so nice of her to do that.
    Have a lovely holiday,

  13. I missed the sharing date of 04-14-2014.... but I was so inspired with your blog today...that I went home and put out my china! Felt so relaxed. Be blessed today!

  14. Love the pedestals on each of these beautiful cups.

    Happy Easter.
