Tea and Apple Tart

My pumpkin and scarecrow teapot is perfect for an Autumn tea.  I think Autumn is one of the best seasons for a cup of tea, along with winter, spring and summer.  Tea is good anytime.
  
 The Blueberry Picnic checked cups and saucers match the scarecrow
 Let's make an apple tart. I just couldn't resist making one - after all, Washington is famous for apples.

 The autumn tablecloth makes a festive background for our tea party.
 I have a complete set of these dishes - they are one of my favorites.  They are by Nova Studio and also come in lavender and green checks.

 Have a slice of apple tart - I'll be serving my new favorite tea, Pomegranate Pizazz.
 A lace tablecloth with a pale blue under cloth also goes well with our tea setting today.  I can't decide which one to finally use.  Will you help me pick please.



 Help yourself to a cup of tea and a slice of apple tart.

Love your pumpkin pottery which goes so well with the blue and white, I'd love to sit and chat together whilst sipping tea and sampling your Apple tart, a lovely way to spend an afternoon.
Happy Mosaic Monday!

I cannot choose a favourite tablecloth.....both together works for me. =) What a fun teapot and your teacups are a lovely design. My, you bake a splendid apple tart, JoAnn. You truly do have a "to-die-for" china collection!

I'm partial to the lace over blue cloth. Blue is such a great complement to orange. The pumpkin teapot is just right for this season. I'll have a little slice of that apple tart, please.

That looks so cheerful for some of the shorter Fall days. It's even cloudy here today for a change. I love the crochet tablecloth and always love lots of blues! Enjoy your day sweet friend. See you Wednesday! Hugs, Diane

JoAnn - such beautiful table settings. The scalloped dish you used for the tart is very interesting and I am impressed with the crust on the tart - clearly hand-made with love! I vote for the lace tablecloth with the blue undercloth. Very dainty and perfect for tea! Have a super week!

Oh I do like that teapot a lot & the blue gingham is a perfect setting for it. For my Autumn table setting both in table cloth & dishes I went with leaves in shades of red, bronze & brown. I am not a Halloween fan or the colour orange. For my ceramic pumpkin I put purple & burgundy flowers in it.

Great teapot. I'm sitting here having a cup of tea this morning. I usually have coffee, but I came to town alone for the Garden Club last night. Seemed like too much work to make coffee for one. - Margy
