Let's Have a Tea Party!

Two of my old friends are coming for a visit and what better time to get all girly and have a tea party!

 Pink and roses - the perfect combination for a tea party setting

Delicate place cards continue the rose theme and add to the complete look of the table setting.    These place card holders were my mother's, passed on to me, and made by Stafforshire porcelain, England.

Elegant monogrammed napkins are another addition to say, "This is a special occasion!"

A unique lotus lamp that I purchased in Hawaii has seen many uses.  It sheds just the right amount of light on the table. 

A little tea table holds all the tea selections.

Another table holds the sugar and creamer.  An old but still elegant cigarette holder is the place for packets of Stevia. 

 These next three photographs show a little trick I learned years ago about how to shorten a table cloth that is not the right size or shape.  It adds that little touch of the rose theme down at the floor level.

I hope you enjoy having a tea party with your friends, for a special occasion or just because.
