Easter Bunny Tea

Hello everyone, wishing you a blessed Easter!

It's been so beautiful here in Florida I thought I'd share another outdoor tea with you.  This will probably be my last tea in the beautiful outdoors for awhile.  We will be heading back home soon and it will be another month or so before our actual spring arrives!

I couldn't resist using my newly acquired transferware dishes!  The tea in the teapot is Trader Joe's English Breakfast. I bet you recognize the butterfly shape cakes from Little Debbie.  I do enjoy them and thought they were perfect for a simple spring tea!  Seeing that this is a "bunny" tea, I also included the white chocolate bunnies.

I made the flower setting in the teacup out of coffee filters.  I touched the edges with pink stamping ink.


I found the brown bunny at a thrift shop.  I have a few of the smaller size bunnies at home and have never seen the large ones.

It's a beautiful warm day.  Wish I could share it with all of you!  Hoping you have a blessed Easter remembering Jesus is the reason for the season!

Thank you for stopping by!  I will be joining the following parties this week:  Teatime Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, A Return to Loveliness, Tabletop Tuesday, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Share Your Cup Thursday, Home Sweet Home, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Show and Tell Friday, and Pink Saturday.

A Touch of Green for a March Tea

Hello everyone!  Happy March to you!

Today I thought I would share with you some more tea treasures I found while thrift shopping in central Florida.

The teapot is filled with Taylors of Harrogate Yorkshire Tea and the petit fours are under a tiny cloche I recently found at a local store.

I love the teacup!  The gorgeous flowers inside the cup is a first for me.  The teacup and saucer are marked UCAG CO China,  made in Japan.  I think the saucer is magnificent!

The sweet teapot is marked Crown Dorset Staffordshire England and was only $12.98!

The pretty embroidered napkin was only 75 cents and I grabbed it up as aqua can be hard to find.

Lastly, the chintz vase was a real find at $3.00.  The bottom is stamped Blakeney, made in England.

Those heart shaped sugar cookies on the magazine cover sure look real!

Thank you so much for visiting and have a wonderful week!

I'll be joining the following parties this week:  Make it Pretty Monday, Teatime Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Teacup Tuesday, Cottage Style Party,  Share Your Cup Thursday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home, and Show and Tell Friday.
