As we are now winding down from all of the holiday's festivities and pageantry, what better way to relax than to spend time with friends cosing up to a brilliant fire with a soothing cup of hot tea. Come on and join me. As cold as it was today, in the low 30's, I decided to shoot this post on my back patio so to capture the natural light on the flowers, food, and teacups. I gave the tablescape as girly a setting as possible by covering the tabletop with white lace and a vase of pink roses.
The silver plated teapot I picked up several years ago when Mr. Rosemary Lane and myself took a road trip through upstate New York. We spent our days in the beautiful wineries and in every antique shop we could find. This lovely teapot was sitting on the back of a shelf in a hardware/antique shop in downtown Albany.
The pink teacup was also another find in the same shop in Albany.
This next teacup set belonged to my my grandmother. My mother gave it to me when I started my collection about 10 years ago...it must be over 100 years old.
I purchased the white and blue set below when my sister Kim and I were up at the Brimfield flea market and antique show in September of 2011.(Click here to see day 2 of our Brimfield trip.) It was for me a no-brainer as I adore the blue color and the daintiness of the gold on white pattern.
This beautiful floral teacup set with gold banding my hubby found while we were in an antique store in the Canadian town Niagara-on-the-Lake.
How about a slice of white chocolate cake with coconut and pecans? Perfect to enjoy with herbal tea served up in one of these beautiful teacups.
Thank you so much for stopping by and joining me for tea. Wishing you a fabulous first weekend of 2013!
