Tabletop Tuesday

I hope everybody had a nice holiday weekend! We did, but I'm looking forward to getting back to a normal home life and fun on my computer. This will be short lived because next week we will be going on another trip, this time to see my sister in Alabama. She will begin her fight against lung cancer with chemotherapy and radiation on June 15th.
I'm participating in Susan's Tablescape Thursday, Marty's Tabletop Tuesday this week with a white tabletop tea time tray. I'm also linking to Lady Katherine's Tuesday Tea Time and Martha's Favorites Teacup Tuesday. Click on their name to visit their blogs.

Last week I posted about my birthday tea time at the Grand Floridian Resort at Disney World.
I forgot to show a pretty tea mug I bought there as a memento to our Afternoon Tea. Isn't it neat?


A few days ago my husband brought home some fresh white roses, he didn't realize I needed those white roses for this vignette, they were perfect!

I've had this pretty Tea jar for some time

It goes nicely with this lovely little square tea pot!
I added this round lace tablecloth on the coffee table in our family room

The rose floral tray and the books give a little color:



Won't you join me for a cup of tea, from this pretty tea pot!
You can even use the tea mug from the Grand Floridian Resort!


Have a happy day!

God Bless.

Katherine

Oh how pretty this all is! And your sweetie bringing you the white roses (beautiful!) was the perfect touch for your teascape -- white roses are my daughter's favoirte (pink mine) -- sort of surprised though that your's weren't yellow! Thanks for your very sweet visit to my tabletop this week.

Hello Katherine~We had a nice holiday week with family visitors.
It's nice to (finally) have time out of the kitchen to see what you've been up to.
Happy Birthday! It looks like you've had a wonderful week of celebration with an array of delightful treats.
Your white teascape is pretty.
I don't think I've ever seen such stunning white roses before. Which is are being that we have over 150 rose bushes.
My favorite pic is you donning the B-day hat...so cute!

I hope all goes well with your sister. You'll be in my thoughts.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

What a beautiful tea table setting. The white is so elegant and the roses are perfect.

That mug from the Grand Floridian is really nice - great shape & handle style. That one wasn't there on my last trip, so I bought the Alice In Wonderland cup and saucer.
