IT'S A CHERRY PICKIN TEA PARTY FOR CHILDREN FOR TEA TIME TUESDAY !







This morning I set up a little child's picnic table in the garden for Tea Time Tuesday......




With cherries abounding at the grocery store...it seemed like the thing to do.....the neighborhood children were so happy!

And some other critters stopped by to join the party.....




We have some lovely cherry napkins....





A Cherry Jam pot was perfect for the table setting...




A clemantis was blooming in the celebration!



Tea Time Tuesdays are orchestrated by Sandi on Prince Edward Island....a long way from Colorado but you can arrive there quickly by just clicking here



I only have a small back yard but hope to challenge you to develop yours as a place for tea time!  See what ideas others have as you visit around on Tea Time Tuesday!














Have a lovely Tea Time Tuesday.....

Bernideen, I am simply squeaking with delight over your teascape! I am lovin the teapot but those little yorkies are adorable! My mother would love them too! She has always had a 'thing' for yorkies! The birdhouse is cute too with the Clematis a-climbin up! Any little girl or big girl would love to have tea here in your garden! Thanks for sharing and have a happy day.

Blessings,
Sandi

That was such a cute tea party Bernideen. I have a small scotty collection and loved your salt and pepper shakers.
Hopefully all the visiting children from the neighbourhood minded their manners. :-)

You set a lovely table for the children.

Oh, how sweet. I love the ME teapot.

You know, I could join such a party and fit right in. I have a dress that looks just like an ME print. It's black with little red cherries all over it. Perfect for your party.

On another note, I have 5 cherry trees...and I'm not getting a single cherry this year. We had a horrid spring, including a freeze in late April, so all the fruit was lost.

Have a lovely day,
Patti

Hello Bernideen :) Your cherry themed tea is simply charming! And the squirrel seems to agree, lol :) If this were at my home, we'd be having some kitties try to come and participate!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Hi Bernideen... Mmm don't you love cherries? My favorite fruit! I love the picture of the squirrel peaking over the fence like hey it's tea time! I think he would make a charming tea companion!!

What a sweet table...my maiden name was "Cherryholmes" - I think I would feel right at home at your cherry table!! Looks like those silly squirrels did too...wish we could see them with their bonnets on enjoying tea time! ha... Donna

Dear Bernideen,
how cute is that! You know, I am always in love with your little squirrel guests. And the cherry theme is so nice decorated. I am sure the kids loved it.
Greetings, Johanna
