Apples for an Autumn Tea

Autumn is Here!

Welcome Dear Friends to

"Apples for an Autumn Tea"!

When I was teaching Kindergarten, Autumn was always the time for my Apple Theme.  We would taste a different kind of apple every day... Granny Smith, Macintosh, Red Delicious, etc.

 We would make Apple Crafts, sing Apple Songs, read Apple Books and finally taste Apple Sauce! 

 The wee kiddies loved it!

So, I thought a bowl of apple sauce with cinnamon sprinkles and vanilla wafers may be a nice treat for us too... with our tea today.

I have saved a lot of my teaching decor as you can see since my daughter and her boyfriend both plan to be teachers.
I did have an apple cream and sugar and several apple dishes that I used to serve the apples to the children in but I drastically parted with them when I was cleaning out my classroom.  They would have been so nice with today's setting but as you know...
I am trying not to be a hoarder.

Today I am once again sharing this creamy Wedgwood teacup.  The textured pattern of leaves looks fallish.

The creamy teapot is unmarked.

Thank you for joining me today for

  1. Ahh Apples.... nothing says fall better. I just made an apple pie from from the few apples we were able to harvest this year. The deer got the others. Those lucky children to learn about the variety of apples which at such a young age.

  2. Bellissima la tua colazione d'autunno!Le mele sanno d'autunno!Baci,Rosetta

  3. What fun you and your wee students had during apple season! I'm sure they found it fun and educational at the same time. Lovely white teapot and teacup! The red gingham accents are perfect! Thanks so much for sharing and joining me for my Autumn Tea party. Happy Autumn Karen!


  4. The checked cloth goes so well with the apple theme. I agree that apples and autumn are made for each other!

  5. Your table looks pretty, Karen, and your teacup is gorgeous! I like your apple theme and your checked table cloth. My m-i-l had Franciscan Apple pattern dishes; she gifted them to my son. They would have looked great for an apple themed tea! For fall, I love both apple and pumpkin themes. Have a nice week!

  6. Ah Yes... Apples do remind me of school and autumn days.... How cheery it is !!!!...Your wedge wood tea set looks absolutely charming on the gingham tablecloth...Happy Happy Happy ..Thanks for sharing..Hugs

  7. It is always so nice to see folks actually using their vintage glassware. Your applesauce and your tea cup are both so lovely, that I had to pin both. (With links to your blog, of course!) This week I am doing a Johnny Appleseed story time at our library. So much fun!

  8. Oh ..i love your autumn tea! It looks so country chic! I adore the tablecloth and the white china. Everything so pretty

  9. Apples are the perfect Autumn fruit Karen! Love the checkered cloth with the white teacup and pot! I love making apple crisp in the fall. One of my favorite desserts this time of year. Darn, I forgot about Sandi's Fall tea. I was wanting to join. Maybe next year. lol!

  10. Apples are always perfect for September! Your Wedgewood teacup is very pretty--thanks for sharing it with us!
