FALL TEA TIME FOR TWO!

I have set the table ~ tea for two! 
I hope you will join me!
I used a drapery panel for a table cloth
This was a freebie from my friend Terry
For a centerpiece I started with my wooden tiered server
I added some faux flowers to the bottom
Then an amber plate on top with a candle
Surrounded by the acorns I got on clearance at Michael's
One of my favorite teapots 

These teacups, saucers and dessert plates were found at a small thrift shop.  I found two sets and paid a total of $2 for the six pieces of this lovely Bavarian china
So delicate and the lovely pattern is gold and green
perfect for a fall tea.  The spoons are my favorite silverplate.
A few cookies please
The cookies are on a pretty Spode plate marked down to $1 at Marshall's.  The colors are perfect for this tea time. 

Something about sugar cubes and tea time make me happy
Please join me! Your place is waiting for you!
I am joining these wonderful parties today!

link is available on Thur night
Happy Junkin,

Linda

Anybody that sets out sugar cubes is aces in my book! Grandma always had some sitting on her kitchen table, and not only did I eat them, but I'd take them to give the horses down the road a little treat. Lovely, welcoming table Linda!

The drapery panel makes a pretty runner, and really like your arrangement. May I have coffee with cookies? :-D

Hi Linda!
This is so lovely. Your tablescapes keep getting prettier and prettier. I love everything and those little acorns are adorable.

Seeing the sugar cubes reminds me of my Grandmother. When I was a little girl we would have tea time together. I thought it was such a big deal that she had sugar cubes!

hugs

I just hopped over from beautiful Secret Garden Cottage. Your table looks so festive and fun. I really like your suger cube tongs.
Everything looks so inviting.

This looks so lovely and so comforting! I'm coming over and I would if I didn't live at the end of the world :)

Susan said...

Oh Linda, that is simply a gorgeous tabletop setting. I just love it. So warm and inviting. I think sugar cubes are wonderful at tea time, and you just don't see them anymore. I really liked the sugar tongs you have. Where did you find them?

I think the rich colors of your little acorns really add so much to your wooden tiered server. Are those mint Milano cookies? Inquiring minds want to know. ;-) Yum.

Well, my dear friend, you have some gorgeous pieces of china there for some amazing prices. I really wished I lived closer to you because, girl, we'd go shopping. Of course, we'd be stampeding over the top of each other for the best finds. ;-) LOL

I hope you have a perfectly lovely night.
Hugs,
Susan

That looks so cozy and welcoming! I love the idea of the panel for the tablecloth -- very clever :) And those cookies are making me hungry...

A drapery panel for a tablecloth - now that's thinking! Love the acorns. I go to Michael's all the time, but never spotted those.
I'll be right over. I take two cubes.

what a great idea to use a curtain, and mmmm, milanos!

Tricia@The Dull and the Dutiful said...

What pretty dishes! And I agree -- sugar cubes make an occasion that much more special!

You are SO SMART to use a drapery panel for a runner!! Loved your setting.....and the great dishes at thrifty prices!!! Those are my favorite Pepperidge Farm cookies...I've been known to eat an entire package (not all at once!! ) This was a fun and beautiful post! dana

What a pretty tea Linda! I would love to sit down with you, have some tea and eat all...er...some of those cookies!!

So inviting and yummy! Great colors for an autumn tea!

Why is it that any table gets dressed up with sugarcubes? Good job, as always on the tablescape.
