Despite the stifling heat, I still enjoyed a couple of tea parties this summer.
The first tea party was hosted in mid-August by my mom who is not much of a tea drinker but my love of tea time has rubbed off on her!
The pattern of this teacup is called "Shade Rose" by Bell China.
I had spotted the matching set of 8 cups and saucers, a sugar and creamer at a church sale earlier this summer. I didn't need any more teawares, but I thought that the pretty set would be perfect for my mom's newly renovated kitchen. No wonder I'm the favourite (aka only) daughter. HA!
We enjoyed sandwiches (not pictured) and sweets with English Breakfast tea.
I came decked out in my finest tea shirt!
At work, we bid summer adieu last week with a tea social!
We sipped Long Island Strawberry green tea from my purple floral chintz Porcelain Treasures tea set by Betty Platner.
The tasty snacks that were brought in by my co-workers.
How did you say goodbye to summer?
I'm joining the following parties this week:
