A Spot Of Tea...

Bee hosted a little birthday tea/luncheon for the girls
she volunteers with...



...a great excuse to pull out all the "tea" finery
and set a pretty table!




The cups...






The jam pots...




This one is my favorite! A "no name" Royal Winton
pattern that has proven to be quite elusive!




Pink sugar, naturally!




Pink water glasses from TJ Maxx...
Place card holders are the ubiquitous, "Old
Country Roses".



A different chintzy place setting for each
guest...English Roses



Rosalynde



Lorna Doone (LOVE that fat little bird!)



The ever popular Summertime.




She used these SEBRING plates to tie everything
together, and let's be honest...they hold more
scones & Devonshire cream!





Little spy...hoping for crumbs!



Even the queen was invited! ;)




A simple yet beautiful center piece...










All combined for a lovely table.




Shhhhhhhhhh! Don't tell mom!



My "artsy" shot! ;)





Hurry over to Susan's for more TABLESCAPE THURSDAY
and a great give away!
