I love this blog event that Ms. Terri over at ARTFUL AFFIRMATIONS came up with. She's a great source of inspiration for me blogging, take a peek at her beautiful blog and you're going to love her too.
Well, she had this great idea for a Tea Party Event, and this is my take on it. What a better place for my tea party set up than on my favorite quiet and peaceful spot, pool side. We spend quite a bit of time in our ever changing urban oasis of our humble back yard . I love this spot because I'm surrounded by these huge tropical Areca Palms. I call this spot, my wall of green. The tea table is set close enough to the pool that I can enjoy the cascading sounds of the water fall, so relaxing.
Now for my set up, a la cheapo, actually I already had everything I need. For the linens I used a vintage crochet round table cloth. I collect white cotton napkins, but this one is not vintage. The cute little silver tea spoon with the tea pot at the end is from a set of 12 that I've kept from when I had my spa. I would serve my clients a mix of herbal/detox tea and I would use these little silver spoons for a special touch. I love them .
The rest of the goodies on the tea table are all bits and pieces of tea sets that I have collected though out the years. The golden brown outdoor chandelier, I get to light up and enjoy almost every evening. I love how my little tea table set up turned out and I can't wait to see what the other ladies came up with for their tea set up. Thank you Ms. Terri for hosting this great event, It was a lot of fun planning and setting up for it.
