September Tea

Welcome tea friends to Tea Time this week!







September certainly brought in fall weather with lots of rain, but we continue to have beautiful mild weather perfect for a autumn tea in the garden.









I can always count on my perennial sunflowers (Heliopsis) to put on a good September show.  If you pick them while they are still fresh they dry so nicely.







I thought my yellow rose unmarked dishes would make a pretty table with the fall flowers.






Would you like a piece of cake?  Ever since I first saw these little decorated cakes I wanted one for me!  When I saw this yellow frosted cake I knew it would be perfect to share with you for this autumn tea!


  








My TJ Maxx teapot is filled with Bigelow Cozy Chamomile tea, waiting for you!






Thank you so much for stopping by and including me in your tea time!


I will be joining the following parties:  Tea Time Tuesday, Tea In The Garden, A Return to Loveliness, Tuesday Cuppa Tea, and Teacup Tuesday.

Lovely that you can still have a tea outside. We had torrential rain this morning! It pounded on the sunroom roof. Love your birdie! So cute and the crocheted tablecloth. The cake is perfect!

How pretty a setting, Nancy! That little cake is as pretty as it is yummy I would imagine and I would love a piece with a cup of your Bigelow tea. Lovely tablecloth too. My hubby came into the office while I was reading your post and thought your garden was beautiful! Thank you for joining me for Tea Time and Happy Autumn, my friend!

Blessings,
Sandi

Traditionally I do a an annual Golden September tea or vignette blog post. this year our weather has the seasons a bit messed up, and we do not have our golden September. I miss it. Thank YOU for having one. Your wee little cake is delightful, and I have a soft spot for yellow roses. How lovely!

Your fall garden flowers are beautiful, and a perfect setting for an outdoor tea party. I love your teapot, snack sets, cake, and bird that came for tea!
