Cottage Style Party & A Tea Party



I was so inspired by last weeks tea parties, 
I decided to have my own.





Welcome to my tea party!


I went with a whimsical spring theme tea party.




I used mix and match pink dishes and tea cups. Yep, that's those tulip plates again!




Pink dishware on a vintage floral tablecloth.




A mix and match tea service with a silver-plate tea pot and pink rosebud cream and sugar.




This nest looks so sweet nestled in the Easter grass (from last year!) on the glass and silver-plate pedestal.




This little bunny has a flower for you!




The other little bunny looks like he's about to make a run for it.




The grocery store roses I usually buy have been replaced by purple tulips.




I love to mix and match vintage pieces!




I love when tulips start to fall all over…it's just so much more interesting than standing straight up.





Tea's ready!

How would you like yours?











Hello Friends!

Welcome to this weeks

Cottage Style Party!

#86







How's everyone doing this week?


My to-do list is still the same length as last week but I did pull out all the parts to make a couple of lamps.
Then I put them away.

Clearly I need to ponder the process a little more before committing to a plan of action.
So, instead I threw a tea party (see above) which is a lot safer than playing with electrical!


I'm anxious to rake the leaves off my flower beds to look for signs of life. But it keeps snowing (again last weekend!) so I will impatiently wait a little longer.


Any signs of spring at your cottage?




Let's see what's going on at your cottage…









I just love the spring feel of this gorgeous table setting. This is so lovely with all the pink and green depression glass and that wonderful chandelier!


Stop over to Penny's blog Penny's Vintage Home to see all the details of her spring decorating. And don't miss the moss globe in the radish bowl!















This is a lovely example of how spring decorating doesn't have to be all about the flowers! I love the chicken wire cloche with topiary and the rustic urn with that adorable birds nest tucked into the branches.


Hop on over to Julie's blog Renaissance Mermaid to see the details of this vignette. And don't miss the bird in hand! So cute!
















A bird with a crown will always catch my eye! Not only does this wreath have those gems, but it's made of recycled paper, fabric and burlap hot glued to a grapevine wreath.
What's not to love?


There are even little treasures tucked in to discover on your own over at Abby's blog Abby's Way. Stop by and see if you can spot them!

  3. Oh Deb, I wish there was a sign or two of spring here. Instead we got a big dumping of snow last weekend. It'll be a long time before we see the grass. Doesn't this seem like a really long winter?

    Love your tea party and your purple tulips are fabulous!!

  17. I do love the colors on your table. What a fun spot for a tea party, and I take mine with milk and sugar! Your vintage tablecloth is the cutest, by the way.
