Just after we came home from our short holiday in Zeeland, we had a tea in the garden. It was a beautiful summer day, with high temperatures. A gentle breeze kept us cool. I used some vintage tablecloths to lay the table with. I found most of them at flea markets, but one was made by my grandmother. Together with my floral teacups and cutlery all sorts, it looked crazy, but nice. I love to mix and match colours and patterns, but I think most of you knew that already :-)!
We all prepared something for the tea: scones, an asparagus quiche, meat loaf, lemon bars, bread with avocado, salmon, sandwiches etc. It was absolutely delicious!
My new petit fours stand, which I won at a giveaway by Paul from Pauls Magical Christmas wreath company, was a real eye catcher on the table. It has a dolls head at the base, followed by a large letter M from mmmm and a pair of legs at the top. It looks quite quirky! It was made by ceramist Tina Tsang and part of the 'Blaue Blume' tea service. Paul, thank you once again for this great gift! I just love it!!
How are you spending the warm summer days? Hope you are able to stay cool!
