Tuesday Tea Time–Sept 9th, 2013

I have set a little tea table, using my peacock dishes.
I still smile every time I see this teapot!
Love the detail in the embossed flower plates…
Some garden flowers for the table…005
On the weekend we celebrated our daughter’s special birthday. After dinner we enjoyed an assortment of desserts made by family and friends…
pumpkin cheesecake, strawberry-rhubarb cobbler,ice cream cake, butter tarts, brownies, trifle, and fruit platters and dip.

Hi Millie,
What a pretty tea table you set! Your peacock teaset and plates are so lovely! Perfect for a late summer tea. What wonderful sweets at your daughter's party, such a assortment! Have a great week!

The peacock teapot is gorgeous and would certainly make a special occasion one to remember.
Looking at all the sweets, it would have been nice to have dessert first to ensure one had room left to eat them.
The bouquet of flowers is pretty and adds to the festive table.


Gorgeous dishes and the teapot is to die for! Your bouquet of flowers is beautiful too! The desserts have me drooling and will be dreaming about them all night, as soon as hit the sack! Thanks for sharing. Big hugs,

Thanks Millie - The party was fun and you and your family are always such a delight! Everyone in your family has such a wonderful green thumb! All of my flowers have been dead for 2 weeks, but yours are still blooming!

Hi Millie, You have such pretty tea items and your photos are gorgeous. The Mildred mums are white but were not quite open yet. They sure were full of buds, though.
