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!

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.
