Hi Laurie, You have some beautiful pieces. I love the fruit plates and tray! Your home (in your header) is so pretty and manicured. My hubby just mowed for the first time today...finally! lol...Sorry I haven't written a comment in a while. I have been stalking though! hehehe...I have been a little slow with my blogging lately. The nice weather has been keeping me outside. Take care, Kristen

Laurie, I love this. So pretty. The teapot and the dishes are stunning. Love the fruit plates and the green is perfect with it. So pretty to use the compotes. The strawberries look amazing.

Lady Katherine said...

Oh, Laurie, I am so ready to sit down with you for this Fruity Tea! The setting is wonderful. I just love how you brought out all the colors from the cloth to the dishes! The green depression? Glass is pretty with the wonderful white chargers. Now those pierced fruit plates are a great find! I love the teapot! One thing about having Tea Time Tuesday, I get to see such lovely Teas and The Teapots, you know I just drool over them! lol Fill my green compote up with lovely strawberries, and a couple of those brownies! Doc says I lost too much weight. lol I love to have a cup of tea in the white swirl cup! Love the cream and sugar, I take three lumps! Please I get to take all the sweets I can! lol I sure hope you have your napkin in your lap for I am so ready to have this wonderful Tea with you. I have my napkin unfolded from the wonderful strawberry ring! Can I have the whole bowl of strawberries? How rude of me! I was just remembering Gollum's post on eating strawberries! lol The bowl is lovely! Thank you so much for letting me come to Tea with you this Tea Time Tuesday!

Lady Katherine said...

Oh, I forgot! I adore the tray! So much!

The berries, the brownies, the gorgeous china! What could be more fun than this! Oh, and I love that fruity tablecloth. Where do you find so many delightful things! I want to shop with you!!!

Diann @ The thrifty Groove said...

Okay Laurie, so what, say around 2:00pm be at your house next Monday for tea? I'll bring a dessert and of course some beautiful thifty serving plate to leave there after all the goodies are gone. :)

I really love this tea setting. the cut out plates with the green glassware is gorgeous. And love the shape of that teapot.

Diann @ the Thrifty Groove said...

All right Laurie, I just read your comment on my napkin post. I can take the hint. I will make sure to bring my own napkin next week for tea! This is probably the reason I do not get invited to tea parties. I never bring my own napkins! I am so uncouth!!

Kathleen said...

What a pretty table! Do you store those in the trailer out back, LOL..
Everything looks lovely, and the food..yum..Do you have local strawberries? Not till late June here..

Ldy ~~ Dy said...

That fruit looks so yummy! I love your green plates and compotes. Don't you just love estate sales? I too recently found some pretty green cups. Love the color. Thank you for stopping by!! Hugs!

You always set the pretties table in town! I learned a little about fine teas at the retreat.....just enough to get me into trouble. :)

Cass @ That Old House said...

Oh Laurie, I am absolutely SMITTEN with those fruit plates with the pierced borders. Oh wow -- I NEED THEM for my dining room, so hand them over, Toots.

Gorgeous dishes, and what a sweet mix of new and old, and memories too.
