TEA IN THE GARDEN ON SATURDAY



Welcome to Tea in the Garden on Saturday and I hope this Saturday is a wonderful one for you and full of pleasant summertime experiences!  This is a time to enjoy the season, enjoy the smells and enjoy the taste of the harvest! Also, a time for tea in the garden!



Please join me by link up below if you have a special Tea Post today in your Garden, Patio or Porch!  I would love to have you!




I went out early this morning and set up a table for the pleasure of tea!  As the birds and squirrels came and went the yard was full of morning sounds.  








Time began in a garden.....








This tea set is Roses and Ivy - English Bone China by Crownford. I was very sorry when this importer closed many years ago as I loved their china pieces.  These decals are still very much in use by many companies. 







If you don't have time today....join me next Saturday by having tea in your garden.....







Have a lovely weekend...

How delightful, Bernideen! Your garden tea is enchanting! Roses exquisite! China pattern beautiful! I always love a nice ivy pattern. And, all your whimsical friends to share the fun, too! So many ideas for a summer tea out of doors of my own this summer - thanks for the post. And, yes, I often think of that first garden tea . . . surely was glorious!
Joy!

Hello Bernideen,
Your tea in the garden is just lovely! Love the lace on the table and your tea set is so pretty. I have linked my Summer Dreams Tea party up with you. I hope this is alright as it is quite long but with rain again on the weekend there is no way I'm going to get photos outdoors. We are not getting much of a Summer so far this year; mostly cold and rainy. Thanks for hosting and have a lovely weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Dear Bernideen,
your garden is always so lovely. But the tea set today is just gorgeous. Love the dark leaves of the ivory with the roses. The shape of the tea set is unusal and exquisite. And your tableclothes! Just stunning the cream lace and the topper with the beautiful flower embroidery. You have always the nicest tables. Thank you for hosting this wonderful party.
Best greetings, Johanna

Hi Bernideen
I just love the pink and white overlay cloth and the rest of the pinks too - china and flowers.
I'm just getting to my computer now so better see about a post.

Bernideen, this is a charming tea. I love the pinks floating on the grass, the lace cloth, and the charming setting in your garden. I always smile when I see your whimsical garden pieces.
Just discovered that you host a Saturday Garden Tea Party. I've linked up and look forward to more. ~ Sarah
