Set the Table, Tea is On!
Share a creative afternoon tea table setting. Linens, serving pieces, teapots and teacup, tea accoutrement’s and accessories, centerpieces, tea trays or three-tiers, and more. Show one way you enjoy creating a memorable tea experience. This is your opportunity to show the world
the fun you have when you create your own special tea experience. Then. . .invite over a friend or neighbor and share some tea together. That way all your work is not for ought.
I guess it all comes from being a voracious reader as a child, but my ideal tea party would have to be arranged by the Madhatter and the Queen of Hearts. When I envision my own gala, it would indeed be outside, with a lavish spread with my best linens, china, etc.
I ran out of time (obviously, since this is a week late already) to actually stage said table, or even to pull out my great-grandmother’s tablecloth for a photo.
However, I did snap a quick shot of my shaded side yarn, and in that little glade is where I’d set the table. I’d even want the Knight to muscle out a sideboard of some sort, because I think a proper tea wants an excessive display of tiered serving pieces with everything from dainty sandwiches to decadent, miniature pastries.
I apologize for asking you to use so much imagination here, but this way, it will be rather like Helen of Troy. I’ve given you a framework in which you can manipulate the details to envision your own lovely outdoor tea party. Just be sure to add lots of pretty flowers, and I’m sure we’ll all be on the same page!
Oh, Channon! That picture of your yard made me instantly a combination of homesick and delighted that such beautiful places exist in the world. You don’t get green and trees like that over here.
imagination is good. And you have picked out a lovely spot for a tea party. 🙂
Alicic in Wonderland is my ideal tea party too!
I think we’ve all got pretty good imaginations, so we’re good to go. 🙂
I’d be happy to have tea in your shaded yard. Hopeing for no mad hatters, tho.
I think tea would be perfect there. I always wanted to invite Jo and Beth MArch to a tea party as I reckon they would make it pretty special.
That’s a nice image…… 🙂
That does look like a very nice area for an outdoor tea.
