A Pretty Pink Tea Table for Two!

I had such an exciting weekend - Mr FH & I went down to our new beachhouse for a couple of days R & R after a busy week on the farm. Finally my new couches have arrived!!! Yippee!! Everything I had bought seemed to go together really well which was a relief!. I haven't quite finished the familyroom but when I do I will share some photos -it is sort of 'French', so very different to the farm house.

Tuesday is always such a busy day around the Land of Blog - tea parties everywhere!! What is joy it is to look at all the gorgeous tea cups on display.
This week I decided to use my lovely silver tea service again - I thought while it was nice and shiny it was silly not to enjoy it some more.

I set my small coffee table in my sunroom with a pretty white cloth and sprinkled it with rose petals to start my table.

White linen napkins and plain white china seemed the way to go.

I had this bunch of pretty white flowers in a jug on my kitchen table for a couple of weeks so I transferred them to a lovely silver water jug and added that to the table.

This old glass cake plate was a gift to me from a lady whose mother I had been very close to and she had passed away so I really treasure this and use it only on special occasions.

I think this lovely silver dish is actually a butter dish but it holds my Donna Hay sugar sticks just perfectly. I love these - I don't know what I'll do when they are all used as I have never seen them anywhere else since I bought them.

Anyone for a slice of cake??  Looks delicious, doesn't it?  I have had these three slices of cake (it is really soap) sitting in my glass cake dome on my kitchen bench for a couple of years now. I just love it - Mr FH would have a fit if he knew how much I paid for it but he would have to agree - it has lasted a long time!

My sunroom is really a delightful place to sit and have tea!! It has a large window and lets the light in really well on days (like today) when it's a little dull and cloudy.

This was one of my last roses for autumn so it looked a little lonely in the vase by it's self so I just sprinkled it around the table.

Pull up a seat and join me......Tea for two is always much nicer than tea for one!!

I love that the cake is SOAP! How clever! I have found ornament 'cupcakes' to leave on my cake platter, but I have never seen the soap...so cute! Thanks! www.threepixielane.blogspot.com

Hi Suzy,
Your teascape is lovely with your silver tea service and rose petals! I have never heard of sugar sticks before; how delightful! The cake soap looks like the real deal and very pretty too, I might add! A lovely tea! Thank you for stopping by and for joining me for Tea Time. Wishing you a beautiful day.


Terri said...

Delightful post. Such a lovely setting, your silver tea set is gorgeous, and the simple white tea cup and saucer so classic.
I laughed when you said how your hubby would react if he knew how much you paid for the soap!
The rose petals are a very romantic touch.
Thank you for sharing.

What a beautiful table Suzyq and the dessert looks too scrumptious for words! I love the way you arranged those daisies in a silver ewer, it seems so summery. And is that tape lace it is sitting on? Wow I love tape lace! Have a great day and save me some of that cake please.

What a lovely tea table you set, I'm late to join you but enjoyed your post very much.
Your fake cake slices still look yummy and your silver tea service is really nice.

Bookie said...

Everything is so lovely and inviting. The silver is pretty, but I have none. I do have an old silver tea pot in my garden though. :) Love all the pinks...so nice, all of it.

Oh so enjoyed my tea with you today! You know, everything is just so much more elegant with silver and you have a lovely set!
Happy Tea,

Your flowers are lovely and I would never have thought to look twice to see that those yummy looking cakes were actually soap. They look good enough to eat. Your table looks so inviting, but if I should come to tea, would you mind if I brought the dessert *wink* Take care.

Thank You so much for joining me for Tea Time! I simply adore your cake soap! I have never heard of hay sugar, I love the silver dish it is in. Google it maybe you will find it. I would love to know what hay sugar is! lol
