Friends Sharing Tea - A Springtime Tea

It is still too chilly in the garden to have tea outdoors - but this tea from last year helps me feel that the warm days are coming - and soon we'll be sharing our tea in the fresh warm days of spring - soon.

This set is one of my favorites - though it isn't really a tea set - it is demitasse - but one of the prettiest I've ever seen.  It combines two of my favorites - tea cups and flowers.
My favorite of them all - Forget-Me-Nots, the  Alaska State Flower
And a tiny spoon for a tiny cup


Spring time and tea


Pansies picked fresh from my own garden










This very delicate set was made in  Germany, before 1945

Your demitasse set is so delicate and perfect for using for tea or flowers!

Everything here is so pretty! Forget-me-nots remind me of a special moment with my favorite grandmother so they're an extra special flower for me. I didn't know they were the state flower of Alaska!

Lovely tea set - would be so nice to share a cuppa! Warm days are coming, at least up here - could be as warm as 90 deg before the weekend! Oh, my, too much too fast!

What a lovely German demitasse set! All those spring flowers are pretty. Your pink and white (gorgeous!) table coverings really compliment well.
We are not quite warm here just yet.
Hugs,
Terri

Oh how pretty. I always love to see a beautiful crocheted tablecloth with a pretty table covering underneath to help show off the lace. You picked the perfect teapot (or demitasse) and cups for a beautiful Spring tea party. I love the pansies, they are my favorite flower for spring. I want to come to your tea party, I know we would have so much fun chitter chatting about this and that while sipping our tea.
