Thomson Pottery Birdhouse Tea Party

One day last week, my friend, Brenda texted me. It's been a while since we got together cause she is always working, so we planned a small tea party on her day off.

We texted Debjani to join us also. The girls said they would bring something so I took out a rustic cake platter for them.

Our gardener gave me these zinnias and I wanted to use them as part of my centerpiece. I just love their deep orange color.

It was sunny and 68 degrees outside so I decided to set the table on the back porch. I made some walnut fudge.

Rustic butterfly napkin rings holding the rustic colored napkins.

Brenda brought some banana cues,. I haven't had this for so long so I really enjoyed them. Yum!

John came home early too so he was able to join us for a little bit.
I love how the pool water reflects on the glass of the wooden box.

We bought the tablecloth from an estate sale in Brookhaven a few months ago.

I like the texture and the colors and the pattern too.

The fudge were yummy!

Debjani baked tiramisu for the first time and it turned out really delicious!

Thank you all for stopping by.

Good to have friends to drop by and especially good that it is still nice enough to be outside. Richard from My Old Historic House.

All your sets are so beautiful, nicely displayed as well, great job! The zinnia's are a brilliant colour for sure. The fudge is so inviting you want to reach out and snatch a piece. I'm new to Tea time and I'm enjoying it already. BTW what is tiramisu and what is in it?
