Hello sweet friends !
If there's anything I love is tea time, so I have created this 'impromptu' tea table for six friends for an afternoon tea time visit announcement.
Last year a friend of my mother, who is such talented lady with her hands, and with such amazing gift for dainty crocheting, gifted me these lovely lace teacup doilies, specially for tea time.
She said they used them in the past. She is in her early 80's.
Anyway, I'm not gonna keep you waiting to see these lovely, sweet and elegant doilies just for tea time. They seem to be Victorian style... my idea, who knows.
|Here are the doilies on top of a salad plate, the bread plate and teacup and saucer to finish the stack.|
|Lemon pound cake.|
|I love "clotted Cream" on bread with marmalade on top.|
|The pretty white porcelain pieces with the gold flower around them, where a gift from a good friend and I thought them perfect with my 'Noritake' white china with gold edges.|
|My mother was crocheting a 'white tablecloth' years ago too, but then she got problems with her back and left it unfinished, so I used it here on top of a pretty linen one.|
|Here is the 'teacup doily' so you can see how delicate my mom's friend's work is; she's a very talented lady.|
|I fixed the flowers on an ironstone pitcher and raised it on a small cake stand to centerstage them.|
|The white crochet here was made by my dear mother, who is also very talented, but had to stop because of pains on her back. |
The 'clotted-cream' is on an antique small 'Bavarian bowl and plate' that is my MIL's heirloom.
