Afternoon Tea In The Garden

For me, being able to enjoy afternoon tea in the garden is the epitome of the summer season.  I like to look for a shaded spot in our garden amid the tranquil trees and I am in my happy place.  I always have a picture in mind when I set my tables.  Even if it's only for a casual cup of tea in he garden.  I like to create a scene.  One that captures the heart and evokes a memory. 

My inspiration for this table, was the charming dinnerware.  It is adorned with flowers, bees and hummingbirds.  Ideal for this tea in the garden!!   The tea cup handles are shaped like butterfly wings.  How cute is that!!!  Hydrangeas and spray roses from my garden come together to add a touch of elegance and loveliness to the table.

There is something unique and special in the ritual of tea.  A simple indulgence that provides a certain level of comfort with a touch of luxury and old world charm all rolled into one. So take the time to savor a cup of tea sometime!  You will be glad you did.

Wishing you a lovely and productive week.

Happy tea!!!
