High Tea

High Tea Tablescapes


I am joining the lovely Laura at Decor To Adore for High Tea.  Life has been a little busy, so I am doing a repost of a Teascape I did last year.  I hope this counts.


We're serving Tea for three today.  I hope you enjoy your visit and refreshments.



A centerpiece of spring flowers and feathers.  I'm using a lace tablecloth with flowers also.


Please choose your teacup. We have three vintage ones to choose from.

I'll be glad to pour from the silver service. There's also lemon if you'd like.



Our dessert of White Chocolate Raspberry Cake is being served on a cutwork cakestand topped with a bird cloche.


An assortment of sandwiches are being served on a silver triple server, please try some of each. There's an assortment of fruit if you'd like.  The peaches and grapes are especially nice and sweet. Help yourself to some lemon water.



Our vintage plates are Grace China, made in Japan. Please help yourself and then let's visit. I'm so glad you joined me today


Thanks for stopping by, I had a great time. Please come again soon.

  4. I like the cup in the middle the best because of the pattern and because it has such a very pretty picture on the side of it.

  8. Marty,
    You are such a gracious hostess! Since I have a choice, I prefer the tea cup on top. It's short and squatty like me. I adore the blue patterned rim with pink rose florals. Oh you shouldn't have! You have all three of my favorites in one dessert. . .white chocolate, raspberry and cake! Let's see, I'll try the center sandwich, please. Perchance it be chicken salad. These Grace China plates are gorgeous with your vintage linens. Thank you so much for inviting me to tea today! Next time around it will be my treat!
    Fondly,
    Pat

  21. Marty,
    You have some exquisite pieces, my friend. Love all the silver. The trio dish that holds the tea sandwiches is just so unusual and very very pretty.
    I love that you got out your silver service... even if it was gotten out last year.
    How creative to put all those pretty tea cups on a stacked plate stand. I'll have to remember that creative idea!
    It is so nice to visit! Your tea is fit for a queen!

All the white the sandwiches. I love it,wish I could join you! I will not be able to link in the next months, I will be going to my 41st surgery next week, and have been in tests all day today. I am hoping I can recover just looking at everyone's blog, I missed so much with sick grandchildren, off to Doc tomorrow to see if I have taken their chest congestion and strep throat. My daddy came through his heart cath today and will have open heart surgery Thursday. Love your TEA
