I hosted a tea party for my original prayer group members this past Friday. One of our members, Barbara, had moved away for five years, and now she is back! Three of us have May birthdays,
so we decided to celebrate with a tea party!
I used my Old Country Roses china on a wine colored tablecloth. The centerpiece above is
OCR Bunny Tea Pot, OCR waterball/music box, and OCR ginger jar.
OCR Seasons of Colour salad/dessert plates with topiary designs are layered on
OCR dinner plate, used as a charger. Double topiary shown.
Single topiary pattern shown here. OCR napkins and tea cups complete the
place setting along with a crystal water glass.
This is a sugar scuttle and mini shovel server with sugar cubes. I purchased this from a FB friend recently. I always wanted one and so happy to find it!
Lemon Scones (made with lemon yogurt)
Open face cucumber
Curried Egg Salad
Mini phyllo cups with chicken/grape salad
Chocolate Petite Fours
Mini Cream Puffs
Earl Gray Tea
Below the table has all the food displayed. Friends are L to R: Gail, Marianne, Katherine (me), JoAnn, and Barbara. One other original member was out of town and couldn't attend. I had several hats I've decorated for other tea parties so we wore them!
(Sorry some of the pictures are blurry -
Here we are with our red noses! LOL!
Who says tea parties are stuffy?? Not with us!
The gang's all here! Welcome back to Florida, Barbara!
