Set Your Table With Flair--A Small Spot For Tea

Hello, sweet friends!  I'd love to have you join me for tea today.

A quiet little spot.

A stout kettle with ornate detail.

Sweet little demitasse cups usually for espresso are perfection for dainty sips between friends.

I love the pretty scalloped detail of the cups, creamer, and sugar!


Lidded sugar

A simple floral topper.  A pretty crochet throw just in case it becomes chilly.

In this post earlier in the week, I shared that my trees have become lush and full.  An antique champagne urn makes for a beautiful vessel in which to place fresh clippings.

Fragrant, delicate little blossoms....

add to the table's charm.

A good read with beautiful photographs is what I enjoy most.  Vogue Wedding's Brides, Dresses, and Designers not only makes a great way to pass the time in solitude, but if you are a romantic like me, it would make for wonderful conversation as well!  I am a bit obsessed with the romance of weddings, if you are much so that I write a wedding blog.  My wedding blog The Bride Ideal can be found here.

This phenomenal publication, which is fore-worded by the wedding gown doyenne herself, Vera Wang, chronicles the fabulous, iconic, and memorable weddings of Queen Elizabeth and Prince Edward, Lady Diana and Prince Charles, Catherine Middleton and Prince William, Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier III, Jacqueline Bouvier and John F. Kennedy, Lauren Bush and David Lauren, Aerin Lauder and Eric Zinterhofer, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, just to name a minuscule few!  Split into sections: The Royal WeddingThe Country WeddingThe Social Wedding, The Model Wedding, Weddings by the Sea, The Vogue Wedding, and an informative Wedding Designer's Guide, it truly is a gem.


A lovely way to pass time,

and lose oneself,

for an hour.....

or more......

in a tiny corner of the garden.
