English Tea While in "Quarantine:"

Hello sweet friends !

Yes, I mean it ! 

We are in "self imposed quarantine" keeping indoors and not going out for any reason.

Here, in our town, Cuenca-Ecuador, everyone is and since Mr. Living and I are over 65, might as well be very careful.

While indoors I decided I will set a 'Tea Time Afternoon' for the two of us, but added two more places for the blog pictures.

I also baked for my daughter Alexandra, Sergio and our Máxima 4, who live in the building in front of ours... a 'Walnut Carrot Cake' we all love. 

Of course there's also mother, who now is living in the floor under ours, plus her caretaker, so I don't eat, gobble the entire cake by myself, lol...

Please keep safe, calm and pray a lot this 'pandemic' is over soon and some country finds a cure.

Ok, with that said.

This table was assembled as follows :

1- Layers of lace under cloth and on top a small one crocheted by my sweet mom for a small coffee table she had. Finally... 
2- Quilted placemats gifted to me by my daughter Sofia for Christmas a few years ago.
3- China by "Wawel made in Poland" and was a gift by my mom several years ago. This china was also from the 60's and saw it around while growing up too.

I love the tin with 'Queen Elizabeth II...' young and now.
'English Breakfast Tea.'

Here I took out the  small cake plate so to admire the pretty dinner plate. All are rimmed with silver for a change.

I chose daughter Sofia's quilted placemats because they have an 'Oriental motif' with light blue "Pagodas" and thought perfect to pick up the dainty blue flowers from the Polish 'Wawel' china. 

My dearest dad, while washing it, had broken the original teapot that was adorable and so my mother used this tall one that blends nicely with the tea set and teacups and saucers.

I love the shape of the teacups, sugar bowl and creamer, so you can just imagine how beautiful the teapot must've been.

Homemade jam

'Walnut Carrot Cake' was baked to eat with some delish English tea.

Little pops of Spring-Easter here.
