Today I am so happy to share with you, Tea With Katherine a painting by Fifi Flower Design,
of my Pink Rose Tea Party. I had a note from Fifi, this morning saying she had used picture of mine as inspiration for one of her paintings.
 I am so honored and happy for the picture, she used for her painting Tea With Katherine  
 has my favorite Tea Party Post featuring my Grandmother’s Roses. 

Fifi could not have picked a better day to give me such an Honor, 
in the company of many talented people in a lovely post on her website.
For after being at the hospital yesterday for test, and awaking sick in the night, and today is my husband Terry and I  thirty-second Anniversary. Fifi you made our day! Thank you!

Tea With Katherine

As I will be going for my number fortyth surgery this Wednesday, when I return home, in a week or so. I shall be looking from my bed out my window for Tea With Katherine,
 which I have purchased the original so happily from Fifi Flower Designs.  
She has many note cards, prints of her paintings. Please stop by and see Fifi.

I decided to share with you my original post of my Tea Party

This morning as I looked out at my Grandmother Sudie’s Pink Tea Roses, as I call them, on each side of my fence they are so lovely. I’d taken pictures of them on the fence, but wanted something special to go with my Grandmother’s roses.  As I looked around at all my small wooden tables,
 ground is to wet! I looked over to my daughter, Suzette’s porch, Yes! 
I went over and we loaded her iron table set, she found on Freecyle.
 Isn’t she the lucky one!
My Pink Rose Garden Tea Party!

Close up of view of the pink tea rose centerpiece, 
my Granddaughter Hannah picked the pink roses for the vase.
View of the table top
I placed a demitasse fork on a white napkin,
 and added the tiny rose buds, instead of using a napkin ring.
A demitasse spoon placed on the back of the dimitasse tea cup saucer.
 I painted the little purse and little old fashion shoe,
 pink which before they was gold.  
The purse is used in the centerpiece. 
The shoe hold the place card of my three your Granddaughter.

My pink rose Tea Set, 
my sister Gloria gave me on my Birthday seven years ago.
I am serving Raseberry Tea,
 Becky at Holiday In The Sun sent me, with a few other surprises, I will show later!

The  three teir plates are of a pink rose print, I found at Fred’s Dollar Store, on sale for $4.00. I searched and searched to find another one at  these stores in nearby towns, I finally found one more. This morning, I opened the boxes for the first time.
 I found 3 in my china closet. lol

Today, I am serving, cinnamon cake, bite size raspberry sconces, with raspberry preserves
 and choclolate dipped puffs.
Garnish: peppermint, spearmint leaves and pink tea roses.

I used to work long hours, and involved in many meetings.
Everywhere, I would take my cinnamon cake.
 It was so loved and the recipe was asked for often. 
I would always say it’s an Old Family Secret Recipe.

This is my Cinnamon cake on my Early American Prescut Crystal cake plate.

 One of my Dearest Friends, Melba would ask for the recipe often.  After a few years, I finally shared my Old Family Secret Recipe with her.
 I told her go to this certain Grocery Store, and no other to find the ingredients. Go to the Deli Department,
 and find a Sock It To Me Cake. 
Buy the cake and go out to your car,
 and take the cake from the package,
 and place it on your cake plate and place on the cover!

 How did you like My Old Family Secret Recipe?
This week I told my daughter, Suzette my little recipe story. For I have never told anyone but Melba my Old Family Secret Recipe.
Suzette went out and purchase a Sock It To Me Cake and on the plastic cover she wrote, Family Recipe. She was so sweet to do this for me, I had a couple of tears in private.
Hope you can see where she wrote, Family Recipe on the top.

How did you like my Garden Tea Party,
 featuring my Grandmother’s  Pink Tea Rose?

  1. Lady K, I’ll be praying for you. Congratulations on the “Fifi” painting! I can see why your tea party inspired her. It’s so lovely. The little round table with the tierd server has inspired me–Not to paint – I wish I could, but to borrow that idea some time. Thanks for the inspiration. laurie

  23. Hello Katherine, What a celebration of events! The honor of Miss Fifi painting your lovely tea setting and yours and Terry’s thirty-second Anniversary!! I hope your day is filled with many wonderful confections. You know there are no calories in anything you partake of on all special events, especially Anniversaries and Birthday’s. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it anyway,lol.

    I hope your feeling tip top pretty soon. I hate this stage where menopause and gravity hits. Once again, only a confection away from relief.
    Thank you for strolling through my humble blog. I look forward to getting to know each other over a cup of tea.

    Yes, I remember that table you set and the cinnamon cake looks really yummy. I wish I could have a slice this moment!


    (praying for your surgery)

  27. Sorry I’m a little late. Seems like when the sun is out I feel a desperate need to go outside and run errands or just life my face to the heavens and soak in the last rays before winter hits my neck of the woods.

    It’s always so much fun to share in the pink goodness of the blogs gathered together for Pink Saturday. A collection of some of the nicest women and prettiest blogs in cyberspace!

    Wishing you a weekend filled with l♥ve and sunshine!

  28. Katherine, I popped back over to find out when you are having your actual surgery. Is it this coming Wednesday??? When do you go in the hospital???

    Please let me know if you get the chance…


    Sheila 🙂

  29. What a pretty table-I feel like I could sit right down and enjoy a good long chat! Happy Pink Saturday a day late! Please stop by my blog-I’m doing a giveaway until Friday, 10/23. Hugs, Leslie

  30. I hope your surgery goes well. I’m sure it will and you have ton’s of prayers heading your way.

    I love the painting she did, but then the inspiration she had from your photos made it easy I’m sure.

    You have a lovely blog.
