May Rosary Tea

Hello sweet friends !

As most of you that follow me know that I have a monthly ministry here at home, where we pray to God with the Rosary and we do so for so much need in the world as for family and friends.

I always offer to do prayers for your particular needs... for an ill family member, friends, a child, a husband, for anyone you wish to. 
You do not have to tell me the reason if you wish not to do so. My friends and I always oblique, rest assured.

We pray for the peace in the world and may God bless our countries as well.

With that said, many blessings to all of you dear friends.

For my 'May Rosary' tea I used a "Home Gallery"- Fine China I bought around 25 years ago, two complete sets for eight, therefore I have 16 place settings and I always loved the small sweet flowers 'wreath like' around the plates.
Since 25 years ago I have plenty of china sets to choose from, lol..

I used the dinner plate as a charger for the salad plate that was to be used for the bread, cookies and cheese; you see, the food is very humble when we pray the Rosary and in this case I had baked some chocolate chip cookies as bonus, it usually is just bread, cheese and home made jam.

The only thing missing in the place setting is the soup plate.

This is a lovely white embroidered linen tablecloth and it's one of my fav from my stash. I bought it so cheap for what it is on sale at a small store by chance. 

I arranged some flowers in a small English water pitcher.

I baked a batch of chocolate chip cookies hubby found with a special tip, which I will share with you.

Add 3 cups store bought "potato chips" to your own choc. chip recipe; fold them into your batter and they will naturally crush. You will find an extra saltiness and very crunchy cookies you will 'adore !'

I'm still very excited with our dining chairs we reupholstered with the pretty 'Toile de Jouy' I brought back from Miami, last January.

It's been two years since Mr. Living had this French country plate rack made for me by his direction and I still love displaying my seasonal dishes.
If you want to know the width os it, it is just 4 inches, so if you have a skinny wall such as mine, you got a rack !

We found the "skinny" (4 inches width) space for the rack behind the service door of our kitchen. So go look for a space for one, you will love it !
You can see the fridge in front of it, which makes it hard for me to take pictures from the front.

Thank you dear friends for your sweet comments, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
