Two for Tea

An English bell for Tea Time!

Laura at Decor to Adore is sponsoring a Royal Tea Party to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and his lovely bride-to-be Kate.  Go and visit Laura's blog and you can see other lovely tea parties.



My table is set with china from England.  My grandfather, Raymond Wade Holt, bought the china while he was overseas in England and had it shipped to my grandmother.   It is from Sheffield, England.  It is white bone china, set in platinum, with a delicate border of green and white flowers.



The candy cups were purchased from a gift shop in Kirksville where Bob and I attended college in 1978.  When I saw them, I fell in love with them!



Sit down for a bite to eat!  My tea box is full of choices from around the world.  There is even a packet of Boston Tea Party Tea.  On our menu for today is a grilled turkey keilbasa and Alice Bird's Crumb Cake, a recipe from 1869.   Alice Bird was a P.E.O. founder.


My PEO sister, Lura, made these darling cakes!


Just in case you desire something a bit more fanciful, you may have some of this flowering tea which is not only tasty but pretty to look at as well!



Enjoy the tea and goodies and come back again to visit!
