Time For Tea

There is something very captivating and striking about a well-set table.  It is about expressing gratitude and making your guests feel special.  For me, it is about creating a painting.  One that reflects my vision with color, texture, harmony and balance.  Setting a dreamy scene that is pure romance and honors the everyone gathered at my table.  Keeping in mind that my table has to be inviting and comfortable...  


And with warmer days making the outdoors a better choice for entertaining, I set this lovely table in my garden with all of you in mind.  Honoring all of you who week after week visit my blog and follow me.  To thank each and everyone of you who have welcomed me with open arms and hearts. You have embraced my work and my creations and allowed me to come into your homes to inspire you.    And for that I offer my gratitude and honor you with this romantic and delicate table.   








My table is begins with a pristine white table cloth.  Pretty cottage roses in a casual metal flower pitcher are the inspiration for the colors used on this lovely table.  Soft, feminine and graceful. Timeless Limoges salad plates adorned with delicate flowers add a bit of romance to the table. 







Martha Stewart teacups give a touch elegance while simple gold flatware add a bit of shimmer  to the table.



















Thank you again for your blog friendship and for the lovely comments you leave with each visit.

Wishing you a beautiful week.

Janet

  9. I follow a lot of blogs for what I can learn from them- mostly cardmaking ones and sewing ones. Yours I follow just for my spirit. I have lived with chronic pain for over 20 years and have seen my life turned upside down. Your blog posts bring peace to my spirit and calm the hurt, if even just for a little while. I find myself wishing I were a neighbor who could share your beautiful settings with you over a cup of tea. I once rented an apartment in an 1800s farmhouse and had a patio at my disposal where I was able to have a dark green wrought iron table and chairs. I had tea there at least once a day. Now I share a cup of tea with you while reading your blog posts. Thank you.

  16. You always set such a beautiful table Janet, and this one is no exception! I love everything about it. June is the month of pearls and roses, and I'd say you have it covered! I love the gold flatware, too, for a touch of glam. I'm sure we'd all love to join you at that beautiful and restful table! xo Deborah
