When I think of early fall, the bright reds, golds and soft greens come to mind so that is the color scheme of my table.
You'll find some hydrangea in the center, low so that we can see each other and dried so that their scent is very mild. The aroma of the tea and food should be the focus!
The plates are stacked ready for the three courses. I've folded the glittered burlap placemats allowing for the four settings to fit at the table. The tiered table is pulled up to offer as a serving area, just as the Victorians did at tea time.
The tea napkins are tucked into the teacups, like flowers in a vase.
Time for a scone, are you ready?
Thanks for joining me for a tea time visit!
What's your favorite element of the tea party? Planning the menu, setting the table, making the invites? I'd love to hear about it!
