Tea with Friends - Granddaughter's tea

I'm joining Sandi from Rose Chinz Cottage & Inspirations for Tea Time Tuesday.  Sandi is another Canadian blogger living on Prince Edward Island.
Many of us have afternoon tea as a daily ritual and it is a special occasion when family is visiting.  With two daughters and four granddaughters, we have a lot of tea parties.
I am unable to show my favourite tea cups and tea pots as we sold our dining room set right before Christmas and I had to pack it all away.  I hope to have my new set that I'm buying from a dear friend sometime in spring and can't wait to place my china and crystal in it.

I do have a nice photograph of our granddaughter Alexandra (Lexy) having tea a few years ago though.  The girls have fun choosing the cup and saucer they want to use from the china cabinet and we always have home made scones with jam too.
Visit Sandi to join the tea party.

  3. Hi Judith! Oh, your granddaughter, Lexi, is adorable in this picture!.. And I LOVE the ritual, or should I say custom?.. of letting your granddaughters choose their cups and saucers for the occasion! That's very sweet, and something I'm SURE they will remember forever! I would love to do the same if, God willing, I have a granddaughter someday! I smile from ear to ear just at the thought!.. So thank you for the tea, and lovely visit today! ~tina

  6. What a pretty granddaughter! Tea times are great - I get together with my neighbour and she brings over her little granddaughter for tea - such a lovely time and this creates fond memories for the little ones. I love your pictures. Thanks for sharing. Michelle

  7. My family has always had afternoon tea as well. My grandparents were immigrants from England so we had to be tea-drinkers! Thoroughly enjoy your blog and truly envy your beautiful home and gardens!
