Since this week we celebrate the Independence of our wonderful country, I decided that all my posts this week would reflect proudly our amazing colors, of red/white/blue.
I have wanted to share these two set of “trio” tea dishes with you for awhile now. I bought the two sets at an antique store in downtown Detroit. Since they are blue and white I added a few touches of red to our tea table today.
This is he first time I have found the lids intake in a set like this.
I like the simple denim blue placemats. As you can see, they are used a lot here!
These strawberry napkins have a pale blue background to them and I thought they would add a nice touch of red to the setting.
I used one of my coffee carafes for iced tea instead of using it for a hot beverage. I use these on a regular basis as pitchers as well as a hot drink server.
I had just made a pitcher of fresh Lemon Balm infused iced tea.
I thought a yummy fresh treat was a nice surprise to hide in the lidded teacups.
Half way through taking pictures, it started to lightly rain. I thought, “no biggie, I just have a couple more pictures to take.” And then the winds came!
So, I started racing around taking things into the house.
Then the rains and wind became insane!
Tablescaping can be dangerous! The wind had picked up a branch from our pine tree and it flew through the air and speared this glass. Didn’t even knock the glass over, just shattered it!
My poor drenched placemats!
The winds were going wild.
The storm hit fierce and was over within 10 minutes!
So, that was my tea with the uninvited guest, Mother Nature!
