A Front Garden Tea

Welcome My Teacup Friends to

"A Front Garden Tea!"

It's a beautiful June morning so I have set our table at the front garden.

I recently found the two matching tea plates for these pretty Gainsborough teacups.  They were $12 for four.  

The flowers in the front garden are in bloom.

Last night all of my children (and my precious grand daughter) celebrated Father's Day with my hubby and I.  

Darling daughter made an orange creamsicle cake for our dessert and so we are having the leftovers today.

It really is delicious with a hot cup of orange pekoe tea!

Do you remember my vintage mint green Sadler teapot?

Sweet Sis found this sugar bowl and I found the creamer during our treasure hunting travels so she gave the sugar bowl to me. She really is "sweet", isn't she?

My daughter-in-law and son gifted me with this gorgeous Royal Albert's Old Country Rose silverware.  It has a mix of gold and silver.

Thank you for stopping by for

  1. WOW!!!!!!

    Your garden tea time is absolutely stunning!

    Your china is some of the prettiest I have EVER seen. Just beautiful = every detail.

  2. Your front garden is the perfect spot for tea! Many times are front yards are overlooked and not used often for parties. Gorgeous Gainsborough teaware! How great that you have the matching dishes as well. The design complements your Sadler teapot. I didn't know RA made silverware. I like the mix of metals.
    Happy Tea Week~ Nora
