A Summer Tea Party

What a beautiful day we had!  A lovely time to enjoy tea with friends!








It is a sunny day so I brought out the umbrella to add some shade.








I found these cute dishes for only 25 cents each!  I thought they would add a little fun for my lady friends!








I used my teapot from Homegoods. It goes well with so many of my teacups.





I get a lot of contentment from my flower gardens.











An easy menu for a impromptu tea:  chicken salad sandwiches,  cucumber sandwiches, cream scones, and brownies with whipped cream.  Fresh strawberries and grapes, too!

Thank you for stopping by this week!  I hope you are enjoying the last month of summer!

I will be joining Bernideen for her lovely Tea In The Garden party.

I love your wildflower garden...so delightful. I tried to plant one like that this year, and got a few flowers, but nothing like that. We don't have the right soil here and it is just too hot. Maybe next year I'll figure it out. Your setting is so refreshing and joyful! Loved the plates with the different high heel shoes...so perfect. You always inspire me to want to have a garden tea party...and when it cools down a bit I hope to do so. Thank you for showing me that it is okay to enjoy tea parties and have fun even at our age! You make me smile.
