Tea Table Themes


My daughter, Melissa, and I have been calling each other and emailing photos back and forth about our table themes for "Tea Time with the Berea Health Ministry" fund raiser tea. It will be a table-hosted afternoon tea where each table is decorated by a hostess using her china and decorations to the theme of her choice. I have judges who will award a prize to the winning table. Melissa and I are not in the competition, but our tables will, in my opinion, be of competition quality! Ladies in our town are buzzing about, working on their secret themes and table decor. The teapot in the photo is a hint about my table theme. I purchased this little James Sadler teapot in England in 2002. We were there during the Queen's Golden Jubilee celebration. Can you guess my theme? More photos of my table decor will be coming...

Isn't it fun to play "tea party" with your friends?!?

Hi Linda,
That sounds like so much fun! What a great idea! I hope you will post lots of pictures of all the tables. I can just imagine all of the ladies running around down thinking about setting up they're tea tables.

Excellent! I can't wait to see pictures of your tables! (Did you see the "queen" themed table in the 2007 St. Stephen Tea slideshow?)

I love the idea of this fundraiser - where each person "owns" a table. Gorgeous! I can't wait to see your artistic endeavors!

This looks something like your cup and saucer. It's called Gloria. I will put it on my blog.

I just love your teapot! Queen Elizabeth! Too bad you aren't nearby, I have some lovely English royalty teacups and saucers that would go nicely with this. Princess Diana; the Queen Mum; several coronation teacups of Queen Elizabeth --- I just know your table is going to be most beautiful!
