In the Garden for Tea Time

Sharing Tea with your best girlfriend is one of life's special moments. Today for Tea Time Tuesday, we are joining Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage and the list of participants, as I celebrate Fall in the Garden for Tea Time.

As my friend and I take a seat at the bistro,Where Roses Bloom, we relax and look around the garden where flowers still share the last of summer's bounty and my Fall flowers are just beginning.

While our tea is brewing, let's enjoy the view of nature's beauty.

And of course we can't forget the Autumn cottage for our birdie friends.

Our tea is ready and it is so nice to relax this afternoon in the fresh air and cooler temps. Today I will serve our tea from a teapot I have shared before. It is pretty for Fall with the leaf pattern on the front. Our french inspired tea mugs are designed with roses in Autumn colors and rose names on the inside brim.

Our sugar and creamer are Autumn inspired with a sunflower design on one side and rooster on the other.

For the centerpiece, I have added just a simple Happy Harvest carved pumpkin.

Rust colored napkins are held using a mini grapevine wreath and silk leaf for a napkin holder.

For our tea time dessert, we are enjoying pumpkin cakeroll with creamcheese filling. It is light and not too sweet. Perfect with a dollop of plum jam.

How cozy it is to settle in for the afternoon and enjoy tea and cakeroll in our bistro seats with comfy back cushions.

Thank you for joining me and my best friend for tea today. It is always wonderful to have you visit and your comments are welcomed and enjoyed.
Have a beautiful Autumn day.
