Summer luncheon

Welcome friends for tea this week.  If you're new to my blog, last fall three other women and myself created a 'Circle of Friends' that would meet once a month for lunch.  The idea came from Victoria magazine and has proven to be a success as we each take a turn hosting.
My weekly hosts for tea are Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage, Trisha at Sweetology, Bernideen's Tea Time Blog and Kathy at A Delightsome Life.
The August host for the Circle of Friends lunch was Val from Gardening in a Sandbox and her table looked very welcoming.
Each place setting had little blue glass leaves strewn about.
We had a colourful salad that had borage and nasturtium blossoms in it.
A delicious quiche,
hot flaky biscuits, and for dessert...
peach upside down cake.
I had Earl Grey vanilla tea in the 'Madonna Lily' teacup by Royal Albert.
Thanks for joining me this week and do visit my hosts for tea as well.


  1. Hello Judith,
    thank you so much for your kind comment.
    I also enjoy all my visits on your blog. What a wonderful idea to meet for tea times. Your menu sounds great and I am sure all ladies enjoyed the tea time and had fun. I am happy that I can have a peek on so many nice parties. I learned a lot during my tea time stays.
    Best greetings, Johanna

I always enjoy a quiche and the peach upside down cake is mouth watering. Lovely post and thank you for joining me today. I hope your week is delightful in every way, my friend.
