Tea with Jam and Bread....


The moment I read about Tea Time Tuesday, I just knew I wanted to join in the fun of a virtual Tea Party...But alas week after week, Tuesday rolled around and I simply did not have time to take photos...One week I even got as far as baking cup cakes, they sure did taste good, even if I never got around to having Tea Time to go with them.


It then struck me, I need to get my photos taken BEFORE Tuesday. Lo and behold, it worked.
I was feeling very inspired to use my all white tea set after our resent trip to Downtown Disney...See post and inspiration images here

I wanted to make my Tea Table complement our simple country home, as well as my white Tea Set...So instead of making cupcakes or even fussing with scones, a simple, easy plate of bread and jam...What a treat to nibble on some white bread...Oh I am naughty.


I picked these lovely Potato Vine flowers while taking a morning walk around the property with my 2yr old Lil Sara...I also plucked some rosemary from the old herb garden to put on the kitchen windowsill to give the house a lovely aroma.


I had waited for Lil Sara to take her nap before I set the Tea Table...Once all the photos had been taken, I brewed the tea and called my eldest daughter (17yrs) and surprised her with a tea party with mummy....What a lovely way to spend the morning, quality time with both my girls.

I am joining in the tea parties at:

A simple tea with jam and bread is just fine with me and I enjoyed joining you today.
I think there are times when all of us make something special for our tea, eat it and then remember we should have photographed it first!
Have a great week.
