Tea time tablescape



Well, who ever said you need 5 dishes at each place setting???
Maybe that is proper etiquette but over here at ND kitchen....its about the food!
(ok, it would be about the dishes if I had more....I am slowly adding to my collection)

I had a little tea with some lovely friends.....

A Steele Magnolia Tea in honor of my love for the movie and the South. See the Southern May pop? how about the okra and the Wisteria pods and Magnolia leaves.

More food



Boiled peanuts anyone???



I love the simple 60's style luncheon dishes.


This piece I just found at the thrift store just before the tea for $2.00

It has a built in flower frog and holds 3 candles.
Uncle Paw Paw was assigned to polishing...
Look there....my 17 year old son at a tea party????  Only because that is his lovely girlfriend across from him at the table.


Cheers!

I love making fruit salad on skewers... but I love your idea with lunch meat, cheese and veggies. Everything looks delish... thank you for the inspiration!
Thanks for Sharing!

The food looks wonderful! I sure could use Uncle Pawpaw with the silver polishing. My dear friend just moved from Williston. Whenever I see something from ND, it makes me think of her.

What fun! Tea parties with friends are wonderful. I have to get busy and figure out a table setting for the brunch here at my house tomorrow morning. You have inspired me to make it special.
