Eclectic Tablescape for a High Tea Party

Hello sweet friends !

My best friend's 93 year old mother is going back from to the capital of Ecuador, Quito, where she's from. Olga's been here for six months spending time with her daughter, but it is time for her to return and spend another long period of time with her other children.

We see her very often, along with my mom at tea parties, ladies get togethers and of course, my every month Rosary prayers, which she comes along. We are going to miss this lovely and sweet lady.

I prepared a high tea table for ten friends along with Olga, the guest of honor.
My table is very eclectic, as I decided to use different teacups and saucers along with my happy bird plates and yellow lemon ones.

You can see the different tea cups in the pictures I'm sharing.

The little lady up front with the orange blouse and my friend Myriam with the purple turtle neck. My mother in the back between them.
The younger ones are Olga's granddaughters. The others are friends.
You know me, at the beginning at your left side.

I used some of my bird plates and lemon ones, plus different teacups in order to achieve the 'eclectic style' tea table, which was fun to set for me.
The tablecloth is an antique European silk brocade that was gifted to us by dear Mil.

The lemon plates. This is my place setting with my 'Royal Albert October' cup.

I baked an angel food cake type with farm eggs, so it comes out very yellow and it is served with 'clotted-cream.'
Hot chocolate and tea, or as they wished. Chicken and egg finger sandwiches, sugar cookies and small 'empanadas.'
Wish I could have taken pics of the food, but I didn't have time, with serving and sittings them in their places, etc.

I was lucky to win this pretty "Colclough, England" teacup giveaway from lovely blog "The Beautiful Matters," from pretty Deborah Montgomery in 2014.

Brown sugar fudge kind with sugar cookies and the cluttered cream to eat with the Angel cake, as is the custom here. 

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

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