TBT ~ A Day of Throw Back Tea Parties

It’s Saturday  and a spring rain is falling off and on
outside today ~ making this a perfect day to sip another
cup of tea and reflect on past springs and teas here at

French Ethereal…

In our last house  I was always setting our large oak
dining room table or this smaller round pedestal table for tea.
On this occasion I created at Easter time I decorated with some
of my favorite vintage tableware and this
sweet little birdie.

Sometimes my tea times could be just tea for a few friends such as in this little tea for my birthday above.

Other times it could be a tea for one as this
little tea was.

At the peacock tea there were real peacock feathers decorating the table and over on the teacart as well.
Little peacock notebook favors were gifts from the hostess to her guests to take home.

On this day  we had a peacock-blue themed tea party
and the ladies I'd met through the Victorian Tea Society
almost 20 years ago now came and enjoyed the day.

Here Monsieur Rabbit came to a little tea at our desert camp home in the spring two years ago ~ it was a lot of fun!
Another recent post with M. Rabbit hiding in the garden
shared this spring's garden and our little lettuces and
other herbs growing. 

Last spring  I was saying goodbye to two new friends
I'd just met when we moved here to Texas as they were moving
down to Florida to be with family.
We shared a special luncheon and I cooked my specialty ~ 
zucchini quiche.

Barbara’s tearoom  was a lovely place to go for
any occasion to enjoy a tea time being pampered.
Another wonderful place I found after moving to Texas
was the Chocolate Angel Tearoom, below
and in a second post here.

These two photographs were from the day I found
the Chocolate Angel tearoom and I ended up
sharing just my little early dinner one day.

Later I shared the whole tearoom and giftshop ~ a really
pretty place in Richardson, Texas to come and enjoy
teatime with that special someone
or special friends!

This was   a another fun spring tea last year again
around Easter time ~ a breakfast tea.

And a little patriotic tablesettings with some set for tea
since we are coming up on Memorial Day.

Looking back  I was quite surprised to see how many
tea and tablesettings I've shared in the past with
all of you!
And these are just a few of them.
I hope you've enjoyed this little blogpost of "throw back teas."
