♥ Tea for Three ♥


Hello everyone,
My sweetheart and I celebrated our 55th Wedding Anniversary on July 17th. and we took a little trip to the coast. I will share some photos later this week. Last week before we left town I finally took the photos of my tea time tablescape. This tea time table started out to be a 4th of July tea time tablescape, but the 4th of July came and went. I took the flag napkins off  and changed the cupcake theme from 4th of July to soft pink and white.
Lets enjoy!
Tea for Three.

My cupcakes are made with a Wilton two color cupcake insert I received for Christmas from my granddaughters. A couple of days before the 4th my granddaughter came down and we mixed two different cake mixes. One white cake mix and one strawberry cake mix. We took a frosting bag and a large tip and filled the frosting bag with strawberry cake mix and filled the insert with the strawberry cake mix. We then filled another frosting bag with the white cake mix and filled the hole in the middle of the cupcake insert with the white cake mix. After baking and cooling the cupcakes I piped on strawberry frosting and sprinkled white coconut on top. Ta da...fluffy and delicious.

The tablecloth is red, white and blue from World Market. Part of my 4th of July tablescape. 
I invited the granddaughters to join me for tea and cupcakes. We love to have tea and a bit of a visit. We each have a different tea cup and I gave them the cupcakes I didn't cut open to show you the inside. I ate that one.
My napkin ring is from the thrift store and I'm mixing some patterns with the blue and white napkins and different blue and white dishes.
The White Crystalline Hybrid Tea Rose blooms all Summer long.


Tea bag caddies are a must at tea time.

  8. How sweet to have a tea for three with your granddaughters. The cupcakes do look yummy and it would have been hard to choose one of the blue and white teacups. A belated happy anniversary Betty and thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.

  9. Betty, I love your blue and white! It is always so fresh and pretty. And stacked teacups are totally charming. We have the same teapot. I shared mine last week. The cupcakes look wonderful and your white roses are exquisite. They look lovely with your tea setting. Happy Anniversary to you and your hubby! What a wonderful testimony you two are! Thank you for sharing and joining me for tea.

    Blessings,

  16. Thank you so much for the info on how your lovely photos are done. I have only a little point and shoot camera (less than $100) but I wonder if I used a white poster board if I might like MY photos better. Worth a try...and thanks again for the info.
