Vee's Note Card Party


Vee at A Haven for Vee is having her April Note Card Party. I enjoy her note card parties, but have never joined the party. But, this month I've decided to give it a try. The idea is to go through your blog and find four pictures you like that you think would make pretty note cards. My first thought was to go through my blog, looking for pictures of flowers. But, since I have been posting so many flower pictures recently (after all, spring is here!) I decided to look for pictures on another theme. I settled on pictures of an afternoon tea party I had for my friend, Karleen. It was prepared for her birthday a few years ago. But, my love for flowers can't help but spill out! The food and the 3-tiered tray are decorated with fresh, miniature roses from my garden. Flowers win!






It was a sunny, spring day. We shared the tea foods with our sons who were busy playing computer games in another room. They didn't mind the froufrou as long as the food was good! Silly guys! Karleen and I sat out on the covered porch and enjoyed tea sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, and dainty sweet treats. Hot tea with brown sugar cubes and milk were enjoyed by the dainty teacups full!



Thank you, Vee, for the opportunity to browse through the Gracious Hospitality archives in search of pretty pictures and happy memories.

I'm also joining Heather for her Tea Trolley.

  3. I remember seeing some of these...it must be the plates of delicious savories and sweets and those charming crocheted coasters. I've enjoyed tea before, but not like this...hmmmm... Thanks for joining us!
