Miniature Tea

Hello and welcome!

I hope you all had a good week!   Today I want to congratulate Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage on her three year anniversary of her lovely blog.  She so graciously invites us to a beautiful tea party every week.  Sandi loves roses so I chose to share a bouquet I received my my Son and Daughter-in-law last Mothers Day.  Did you know that peach colored roses signify feelings of appreciation and gratitude?  We so appreciate your blog, Sandi!







I also thought I'd share with you some miniature tea parties I had at the farm cottage last spring.  My Daughter-in-law gave me the darling tea shop.  It is perfect for storing tea!  I see a tiny garden fairy is enjoying her tea in front of the tea store!






The next tea is on my fireplace mantle.  I started out by putting a sheet of moss on a book and taking an old doll house table and covering it with a hankie, and used the miniature items I've collected over the years.






Last spring I invited a couple of ceramic little ladies for tea in the garden.  They are enjoying tea among the creeping thyme.






Eloise is enjoying tea among the miniature pinks.






Lastly, a couple of flower girls taking time for tea.







Lots of tea time today!  Hope you enjoyed the little bit of whimsy!  Thank you so much for visiting me and I wish you all a lovely week.

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Teatime Tuesday, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, A Return to Loveliness, Garden Style Party, Friends Sharing Tea, Share Your Cup Thursday, Show and Tell Friday, Home Sweet Home, Feathered Nest Friday, Show and Tell Friday, and Pink Saturday.

Hi Nancy,
Beautiful roses! I am whimsical at heart, so I love your miniature teas. They are just darling!
I have a friend who also collected miniatures over the years and she would thoroughly enjoy your post if she saw it. Each one of your teas is a real delight. Thank you, my friend, for sharing a little bit of whimsy today. I've enjoyed it very much. Have a beautiful day and thank you for making my tea party more special.

Blessings,
