An Afternoon Tea Party





I LOVE COMMENTS :)

It's an afternoon blog by candlelight tea. I am sure glad that you don't need to dress up when you blog. I have been cleaning house this morning. This is a Virtual Tea Party that I was invited to at





http://www.makeminepink.blogspot.com/ Here you will find Garden Tea Parties, Mysteries and a Variety of Very Beautiful Tea Parties..


The Candlesticks were a wedding present, almost 11 years ago, I hardly ever use them , but I LOVE candles. The Floating Rose was a Trifth Store Find Yesterday and The beautiful Crystal Bowl was also purchased there, along with the beautiful Shabby Chic Rose Centerpiece. I wanted to get some Real Roses, However, I also found some Windsor Woods Wild Rose Perfume, S o The House Smells of Roses now. The Teapot & Dishes came from my Mom, they were in my "Hope Chest" when I moved out.

I had plans on making some yummy food or scones or something, but time just sorta slipped away, so the only food I have on the table is Butter mints. I love these, and they are very hard to find anymore, I remember when I was young, every wedding we went to had Butter mints & Cocktail Peanuts. Oh The Memories.


Speaking of Memories, as I was searching for a Lace tablecloth that my Mom has, somewhere in her Linen Closet, I found this Beautiful Vintage Embroidered Table Cloth. My Grandmother Made This. So it is a Very Special Keepsake....


Thank You for Joining Me for Tea & Please Join The Rest of The Blog Tour at http://www.makeminepink.blogspot.com/


Have a Great Monday!

Hey, who can beat buttermints?! I love 'em, too!

I'm so glad you mentioned that tablecloth - it's beautiful and what a great keepsake!

Hi Angie,
The tablecloth is a wonderful keepsake. I love the tulips. Sounds like we both came from the same era buttermints at weddings and hope chests filled with goodies for us....

Hi Angie, I was honored to have you at my tea party today. Hasn't it been fun going to all the tea parties? I remember my Mom always, always had butter mints at her church circle meetings when she was the host. My siblings and I couldn't wait for the meeting to be over so we could have the leftover mints and peanuts. LOL....Lynn

Hi Angie!!

Thank you so much for visiting with me at my tea party! I love all the visitors I've had the pleasure of entertaining today!

I am so in love with your vintage linens.. I have a weak spot for them and to know they've been hand stitched from your grandmother is even more priceless!

Ahh.. buttermints! I used to buy bags of them and eat them throughout the day! Thank you for reminding me of my "lil Sweetpeas!" I'll have to buy a bag, it's been years! lol..

Stop by my page anytime, I so love visitors~

What a lovely setting!!! Did I hear you say Butter Mints? No need for cookies or scones, I LOVE Butter Mints!!!! Oh, and I love the candles. I wanted to use candles at my Tea Party, but was afraid my 2 year old little boy would pull them off!!! I had enough trouble keeping him out of the china!
