Hello and welcome! On my last post I mentioned a Afternoon Tea Party my friend Sue and I were hosting at my little farm cottage. Today I thought I would share the lovely afternoon with you! First though, Sue from serenitea-sb wrote a wonderful post about the tea. If you like, please see her blog for more pictures of the afternoon.
My first picture is of the little farm cottage where the tea was held. Miss Matilda is sitting in the rocker with a cup of tea close by, waiting to welcome the guests!
I took a few pictures of the tearoom before guests arrived. I used my Mom's rose dishes, and some Moss rose dishes I've been collecting.
For favors I filled floral containers with a teapot sugar cookie, a truffle, and a tea bag.
Sue is busy pouring tea for our guests.
The first course was a delicious apple soup and cheese crackers, that Sue made. Then came the three tiered trays with scones, tea sandwiches, and sweets.
We served American Classic loose leaf tea from the Charleston Tea Plantation.
Before tea time the guests were invited to visit my little bedroom next to the tea room.
Plenty of hats for the party!
A little reading nook in the bedroom.
Lot's of wonderful memories were made at this Tea party! Certainly a day to remember!
Thank you so much for visiting! Hope you all have a wonderful week!
I will be joining the following parties this week: A Return to Loveliness, Teatime Tuesday, Friends Sharing Tea, Teacup Tuesday, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, Share Your Cup Thursday,and Show and Tell Friday.
