Join me for~A French Toile Afternoon Tea

Welcome to a French toile tea party. I thought it would be fun to revisit a tea party from a past post when my blog was all brand new nearly 4 years ago. This tea featured my french toile tea set that I display in my french toile art studio. It is not a vintage set, but gorgeous just the same, featuring a country scene with roosters all in black.
Thank you for stopping by to join me. I am linking today with our hostess Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday. My tea today is being served on a gorgeous black toile tea set with an assortment of teas of earl grey, raspberry, black teas, English breakfast and served with mini chocolate bundt cakes filled with vanilla creme and gourmet chocolates. Layered with Waverly chintz style luncheon plates on black check napkin place mats. I have set two tea pots to coordinate with matching sugar and creamer. Each black handled cup with saucer is delicate and dainty. Lace napkins for each setting are held with porcelain white dove napkin holders. Ivory and black toile lap napkins are displayed over each antique style black chair to tie the whole setting together.

The large pitcher is holding an arrangement of garden mini pink roses and a top sits a pretty little bird to greet guests. Pillows grace each chair for comfort and my favorite is the one that glitters with the word "Blessed."

Thank you for coming to tea today and I invite you back soon as I will be featuring many new items freshly created from my studio. It has been a busy few weeks with the beginning of Summer this week and the start of Christmas creating on the drawing board.
I am excited and so happy to be working away. Taking breaks to go to the pool, all the perks of being self employeed and working from my home studio. Thank you God!

Visit Sandi, to view the list of participants for Tea Time Tuesday and enjoy a wonderful first week of Summer!
Happy Times,
Hugs from Texas, Celestina Marie
