A TEA TRAY ON THE BED for "Friends Sharing Tea"


The plan as I recall was to start "Tea In The Garden" this week - you know like other years.  I would go out and set up tea and take pictures and so would you and you would link up your lovely posting so we could share with each other.  That was before a snow storm was due to come over the mountains.  Right now there are boxes over some plants and blankets over some and the rest are left to fend for themselves. It snowed all day yesterday and more is expected today.

So I have decided to set up a little tea time tray on the guest bed.  I know the red tulips don't exactly match but I went for it anyway.





And outside the wind howls: (photo yesterday)





So glad it is nice and warm in here:





Before it started snowing yesterday morning I was able to quickly pick a few blooms - I do feel sorry for those poor flowers outside.




Help yourself to a sugar cookie as I 
certainly
 had time to bake today.  I've already had too many!









I do hope you will join me for "Friends Sharing Tea" and if you were able to do a "Tea In The Garden" that would be lovely!  Just link below but please make your post about tea in some fashion.  I am early getting this done since I had extra indoor time to do it on Sunday.




I am sharing this post with these blogger friends:
Tea Time Tuesday with Sandi
Kathy's A Return to Loveliness
Tea Cup Tuesday With Martha
And With Terri
Cottage Style Party
Share Your Cup Thursday

Sorry friends, I have tried over and over to no avail - no linky party this week due to problems with Linky Tools!

I'd love breakfast in bed with your lovely china!

I just saw on the news this morning about your snow, Bernideen. It looks like you're guest room has a lovely garden feel anyway. I'd love to share a sugar cookie and a cup of tea with you. Thanks for hosting and I hope your snow melts away soon.

Your garden flowers are beautiful Bernideen. They make a lovely arrangement. I called my mom yesterday (near Denver) and couldn't believe it was snowing there! It has been a crazy winter. Your tea inside looks nice and cozy though, and the cookies and flowers maybe make up for the weather. Hope all your flowers are undamaged.

Bernideen, you made your own Springtime on a snowy day! I just discovered your blog… and love it! Tea and tea parties are some of my passions, too. I'm a brand new blogger at petalspapersimplethymes.wordpress.com
Happy Springtime! ♡Dawn

Vee said...

You have made lemonade out of lemons and so very beautifully. The tea tray in the guest room is delightful! Another day of snow? Ugh. Well it simply must go and that's all there is to it. Tomorrow then. Enjoy a cozy day!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Oh, snow do go away! I remember Mother's Day of 1995, we had a huge snow storm that day. My father passed away a couple of weeks later which is how I remember. One shouldn't be getting snow in May!
Your tea on the bed looks very inviting. Love your bouquet. And violets always reminds one of springtime. Hope the white stuff melts away soon so you can get out and enjoy your garden.

Blessings,
Sandi

Marilyn said...

Your guest room looks so inviting, especially with the lovely tea tray and cookies too. What a lovely place to curl up with a book and tea on a snowy day.

Snow and sugar cookies go great together. The tray and wonderful teaware is great. Just wounder how do you get some one to bring it to your bed? Pam

Hello I also enjoyed how you took the tea party into the cozy guest room! Lovely and you are so right about this very late freezing cold weather and the winds. We are having it here also! Blessings, Roxy

Karen said...

HI Bernideen,
I am sorry that you have snow but it certainly does look pretty! Your tea with the violet china is lovely today. What a beautiful tray and quilt on your bed. Hopefully you will be able to have Tea in the Garden again next week. I am not sure where to link up today. I will try again later. Thank you for visiting me! Karen

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

With that white stuff coming back, setting up tea on the pretty quilt in your guest room is a good thing to do.
You make madeleines, don't you? I made some for our garden club meeting tonight and burned the first batch, undercooked the second batch. I guess it's just one of those days! :-)
Hopefully we can have tea outside some time next week.

Linda said...

Tea will go on! Lol Great job!

Bernideen said...

If you linked a post earlier to my party - please come relink as it wasn't working!

Bernideen said...

Please come relink as the earlier link didn't work!

Bernideen said...

If you linked earlier to my blog party please come and relink as that one crashed!

Bernideen said...

Judith: If you linked earlier please come back and do it again as the first one vanished!

Bernideen said...

Karen: I lost my blog link up but I relinked you!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

Glad I found your comment Bernideen, I remember linking and can't believe it didn't publish.

Winnie said...

What a cozy tea you have there! I love quilts, and love how this looks on your guest bed. Just beautiful.

Beth L. said...

Wow, SNOW... I know I linked and I entered a comment. The internet must have hiccuped. But I am trying again with the comment. No place to link still....

Kathy A Delightsome Life said...

Hello Bernideen - snow! Really - what a year this is turning out to be. Love your tea set and I'm sure your sugar cookies are wonderful - I do appreciate you hosting and sharing!
Kathy

Kathryn Ross said...

Blessings Bernideen. Well - you made the best of it with some blooms from the garden, at least. Such a cozy spot in your guest room and a lovely tray that is warm and inviting so let the winds howl. Sorry about the linky not working. Hope you'll drop by and visit anyway - we didn't have snow and it topped out at 77 degrees on Mother's Day.
Joy!
Kathy

Schotzy said...

Your color in all your photos is amazing... love this post... but alas, no linky.

Terri said...

Oh my Bernideen! Snow? I feel for your poor plants! I do hope they survived. Tea in the guest room is cozy and sweet. Lovely that you were able to save a few blooms. Had you ever had snow after Mother's Day before?
Wishing you good weather soon : )
Hugs,
Terri

Rosemary and Thyme said...

Hello Bernidee. Oh my goodness. I can't believe you are still getting snow. Love that that pretty bedroom. Such a sweet spot for tea. No place to link but no worries. I hope you can stop by to see my lilacs.

Hugs,

Janet

The Charm of Home said...

Oh no more snow! It is getting cold again here the next two days and everything here is fully bloomed! Stay warm.

Martha's Favorites said...

I can't believe it is snowing and we are at 100 degrees in Los Angeles. Something is very wrong with this picture. Love your china, especially your tea pot. It is just stunning. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha

KathyB. said...

80 degrees here , and snow actually sounds pleasant to me, but the poor flowers. I think you chose the very best way to spend a snow day indoors, having tea and fresh baked cookies inside a cozy home while watching the snow fall outdoors.

Your guest room is lovely !

Jann Olson said...

Bernideen we had lots of rain and 3 windy cold days. Today it is gorgeous and I set up my tea in the garden. Hope you get to go outdoors soon. For now your indoor tea is lovely and I wish I had one of your homemade cookies instead of my store bought. lol!
hugs,
Jann

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Hmm, that's curious! I had linked up Monday and I saw my thumblink there. Somehow it disappeared since then. Wonder what happened?

Carrie said...

Yuck to the snow!! Spring/summer has to be coming soon, so hang in there! Your guest room is lovely, and a tea in bed with your pretty china is definitely a good answer to the snow. I really like your flower arrangement--it's so pretty!

Angela McRae said...

I'm just pleased that you are sharing your love of beauty no matter what the weather! Still, can't believe you have snow -- it was in the eighties here when I got home from our trip Wednesday, but then it dropped dramatically to the fifties yesterday. This weather ... honestly!

Jean | Delightful Repast said...

Such a beautiful, warm and welcoming addition to the guest room! (I'm packing my bags now!)

Susan Clayton said...

How good you are to turn a May snow day to such good account.

Kathy A Delightsome Life said...

It's unusually cold today - this definitely has been a record year for weather - LOVE your tray - beautiful tea! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
Kathy
