Let's Talk Vintage #65: Tea Time with Friends

Welcome to Let's Talk Vintage!
You've come to the right linky party if you love
things of olde and if you are inspired by vintage.
Feel free to link up your blog posts of your latest
vintage projects, remodels, junkin' finds, Etsy shop
items, etc. We'd love to have you!
This week I am taking you along to a tea time
luncheon Bebe and I were invited to during the
holiday break.
This table was set up in a gorgeous,
all white kitchen. . .
(Note the awesome farm sink!)

It was a lovely party... I loved looking at all of the 
Nutcrackers on display.

I can just hear the music now!
There were lovely details all around.
Loved this dainty bouquet of pink roses.
Notice the pink lustre pitcher/creamer
they are resting in.
There were other details, too, like this plate of tomato and olive "lady bugs" with a creamy cheese blend of feta and sour cream, spread over petite bread slices. They were delicious, of course!

In fact, there were delicious goodies everywhere!

This was the table set up in the dining room, where Bebe and I sat and enjoyed treat after treat.

Look at these pretty green,
majolica style, vintage plates.
We were able to choose any teacup
we wanted to use from this
amazing, gigantic antique cupboard.
This was my pick.
Of course it had to be pink!

Our friends also had other
eye candy to check out.
Like this stunning oval portrait.
It was our friend's Great Grandmother.
Look at the details!
(My apologies for the TV reflection)

Just for size reference I took this shot also.
This was no small picture, lost on a wall.
It was the focal point.
Story has it her Great Grandfather
wanted a smudge repaired and had
the artist travel all the way back
to America from Italy to fix it!
Love it when you get to hear the
history behind a vintage piece.
We had a wonderful time!
We look forward to it all again.
Thank you for joining us!
Here are this week's features:
And since we're talking tea,
shared her find of the year...
a Japanese Tea Set. Beautiful!
went antiquing and found some lovely
tea cups and saucers. I think
she hit the jackpot, finding
a Shelley for under five bucks!
and Sarah of Sadie Seasongoods
created this condiment set out
of an old card catalog drawer...
Perfect for an afternoon tea party!

I enjoyed the tea party that you and Bebe went to and it looks like you had great fun! Her table and dishes were very sweet. It is always so relaxing to just sit with friends and catch up on all the "news". Her nutcrackers were darling. Happy New Year to you and thank you for featuring my post from last week.

Love the idea of the girls at tea, and that DR table was really pretty, Jill. So was the portrait of the gr-grandmother! Thank you for hosting. I'll join in the links later in the month, but am just enjoying the guests for now. :)

Oh Jillian, what a dreamy visit you had! The cabbage plates are great, and would be perfect for Spring or Easter right? And the cupboard with all the teacups, and you got to pick your own?! The food was so much fun to see, especially those ladybugs. The oval portrait is the bomb though! LOVE it! So beautiful and big!
Thanks so much for sharing your visit with us!
