The whimsical Teapot and Sugar & Creamer were a gift from my dear friend Kathleen many years back. I always adore using it with my younger tea guests, because it's just so fun! The girls and I drank the pot dry...and for a few moments, Castle, Kethryn's 8 year old brother, joined us for two quick cups of tea as well. The plates (6) were purchased at Luckett's Store in VA while on vacation for only 75cents each. They are from Bavaria, Germany. The small glass teacups are clear glass and very petite, just right for a little girls tea. Since our refreshments were Girl Scout Peanut Butter cookies, we didn't use forks, only small tea spoons for stirring our tea. The napkins are delicate little ivory tea napkins with a little flower cross stitched. I placed them in front of the plate so the flower would drape over the cloth just a tad. I used real sugar cubes with tongs for serving. The girls loved asking for "two lumps".
The tea served was Peach Apricot and they loved it too!
They also enjoyed having milk in their tea! It was so enjoyable just to sit with them, listen to their stories, and watch the little stars in their eyes when they'd share something they love with me. They both felt so special and kept telling me how much they appreciated all the little touches to the table. I realized that day while reading my Romantic Homes magazine while waiting for them to arrive, this is truly what tablescapes are all about...blessing those we care about. I hope you've enjoyed my Outdoor Tea Party Tablescape Under the Pergola!
