Tea Among the Daffodils

Hello everyone!  I finally have some flowers blooming in my garden to share with you.  My daffodils are blooming so beautifully I've decided to have tea time this weekend among them.








I'm using my Mom's set of blue and white china she bought years ago at Woolworths.  The teapot I bought years ago right after she gave me the set.










I've made lemon bars for us to enjoy and the teapot is filled with Tazo Wild Sweet orange herbal tea.
















My primroses fill the dark blue creamer and a few daffodils are in the kitty vase, another gift from my Mom years ago.













Thank you so much for stopping by and enjoying tea with me!  Hope you have a wonderful week!

I will be joining the following parties this week:  Tea Time Tuesday, Tea in the Garden, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, A Return to Loveliness, Cottage Garden Party, Share Your Cup Thursday, Simple and Sweet Fridays, Home Sweet Home, and Show and Tell Friday.

I always enjoy your pretty garden teas, sweet Nancy. The blue dishes are so lovely and especially with the yellow flowers for contrast. I'd love a lemon bar and a cup of tea to share with you.

I love blue and white -- and with your daffodils -- gorgeous! Lovely teascape in the garden. Tazo wild orange is one of my favorites and I love lemon anything! Love the little bird house! Happy Tea Day!

Blue and yellow are such complimentary colours. Your tea table with the blue and white china and all the daffodils in the background looks lovely.
I like the birdhouse and cute kitty vase.

Hi Nancy,
I almost set a blue and white tea too and then I got my peach roses and decided to go in another direction. What a beautiful sight your tea table makes among all those glorious daffodils! How I would love to join you and drink in all the beauty you surround yourself with. Thank you for coming to tea and have a lovely week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Hello Nancy,
I am loving your beautiful outdoor spot for tea! It is so lovely with all your spring bulbs blooming. Your primroses look gorgeous in your blue pitcher.
Blue and white is always so cheery, and your mom's china here is perfect with the yellow flowers.
Have a lovely day : )
Hugs,
Terri

Blue & white with yellow accents, my favorite combination ! Such a lovely tea time. Isn't it wonderful to be outside again, enjoying tea amidst your garden ?

Thank you for your blog post. I have already been saving for our new book on this subject and your short article has made us all to save money. Your thoughts really responded all our issues. In fact, in excess of what we had known before we stumbled on your excellent blog. My spouse and i no longer have doubts as well as a troubled mind because you clearly attended to the needs in this article. Thanks

Hi Nancy, gosh you still have daffodils, you lucky girl! Ours have been over for weeks. That's a flower I never seem to get enough of. I love your cups. I have a similar set from the Czech Republic, my birth place. These are traditional Czech patterns called "cibulak", roughly translated as Blue Onion.

Bernideen said...

I think I can almost smell those daffodils so lovey and I am so glad you shared your tea setting with Tea In The Garden!!!

This is so lovely! Blue and White are one of my favorite color combinations - add yellow - and it sparkles - I feel like I'm in a different part of the world! Not used to seeing Daffodils so late! Your garden looks wonderful. I appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
Kathy
