Tea time in Family Room with Mama

Today's afternoon tea was held on the family room coffee table in front of the TV with my mom.




I used Johann Haviland coffee set in Brown Rose pattern. I have had this for at least 3 or 4 years but I think this is the first time I used it. I like the very graceful curves and shape.

We had guava with passion fruit tea and mango moose cake. Yum!




Silver napkin rings encircling the April Cornell napkins.





There's my mama enjoying the tea even if I kept saying, "Not yet, I have to take pictures first", lol.

I thought, all this time, that I was a follower, Christine. But when I just checked, I wasn't ....BUT I AM NOW. So sorry about that. There should be some way we know instantly if we are followers. Well, all's well that ends well. :)))
