AFTERNOON SUMMER TEA WITH OLD COUNTRY ROSES

Welcome to the 69th Tea Time Tuesday   
Join in my garden with my lovely roses.
Today I am using my Royal Albert Old Country Roses Fine China.
I have been collecting the oldest pattern of this china,
I still need more dinner plates, for today I used my husband’s 
grandmother’s everyday dishes with my china
This afternoon I decided to use a double cake stand instead of a three tier stand placed on a wicker table, with a lace topper and a red beaded round placemat
Close up of the desserts, and scones
The rose bush in the background is very fragrant, and blooms Spring through Fall
Top of the table set with Old Country Roses, silverware from garage sales,
 a battenburg lace curtain used as a tablecloth
On the top tier, red velvet cake with roses and spearmint garnish
Second tier, chocolate candy, chocolate chip scones, chocolate chip cookies,
 strawberry filled cookies, and strawberry preserves in a cup 
I just adore the glass serving spoon in the cup of strawberry preserves, 
I regret not buying more of these spoons from a thrift shop.
My Husband Aunt’s old green glider, makes a lovely place to sit
( I have bought an old green large iron table to use with this setting) 
I can’t wait to do a Tea on the old table in the weeks to come.
Yes, the pieces could use a coat of  paint, but for now I shall enjoy them as they are

I love to serve my scones first, as they taste better while warm
I do love my old silverware pattern
The tea napkin, I made

I love this pattern of china so much, this is the first time, I have used it outdoors
I just adore using placemats on the chair seats
A different view
This rose bush has double it size in just the last few week since this Tea, 
I have been rooting the stems, for it smells heavenly!

Would you like to have a scone?
Oh, someone has taken the spearmint garnish from the plate
I loved using my China outdoors, for I usually only use this china in my parlor
A lovely cup of Tea, my favorite Vanilla Cream Tea
Did you notice just a few simple pearls lay on the table?
The creamer just stands out in this photo

We can’t wait to sit down and have a lovely Tea!
Would love to have you join me!
A breeze was blowing, as you can see the tablecloth, perfect for a summer day of Afternoon Tea
See the white swing on the large stump,
 my husband bought two swings at an auction,
 one  swing sit on my porch, this one is to go underneath a tree
I do love my Royal Albert Old Country Roses Fine China

Wish you were here to join me for a lovely time having Tea
Many of you have asked how I am doing, with help I did accomplish putting this Tea together,
I am still recovering from surgery, I am getting a little stronger, but still many Doctor visits.
I have a few complications, but hoping soon I will be back to visiting all of you.
How I wish blogger would have a way I could comment on each of your thumb photo links.
They all look lovely, and I know I am missing so  many lovely Teas.
I have been spending days and nights at our Old General Store/Cafe, doing what I can to help get it open.
Soon I will have photos of what we have been up too.
I have not had internet there, hoping they get it in next week some time!
Thank you all for your lovely comments, and for linking for Tea Time Tuesday!
