Looks like I have Marty's button in my Tuesday button mosaic too so I will link with her also for Tabletop Tuesday at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/ even if I am already linked for another post.



I am having tea in the family room. I had to move the Scrabble game somewhere to make room.
I love my bumble bee teapot and I bought the honey container from one of the other vendors in the store for $3.

Today I am using my Myott Staffordshire Royal Mail teacup. I have a complete dinnerware settings service for 8 and I am still trying to decide whether or not, I will sell it in the store.

Isn't that the cutest napkin ring? I bought it from Sur La Table.





Do you see the orange and green frame hanging on the wall? It's a signed lithograph "Mad Tea Party" by Salvador Dali. That goes so well with our tea party, doesn't it?

Here's a close up of the napkin ring.

I can't wait to burn some wood in the fireplace.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks to our hosts for these marvelous parties!

What a fun tea setting with that fabulous giant bee napkin ring! The coordinated teapot and accessories look great with it. The floral arrangement and glowing candles makes me want to sit right down and pour a cup!

Christine, Your bee teapot and honey pot are just adorable and you've set a really sweet spot for tea. That napkin ring is the cutest thing, too. :-) I would love to sit in front of a roaring fire, too. Before we know it, it'll be snowing outside. WOW- now that's something I don't want to think about! LOL
