Autumn Tea in the Garden

Welcome friends for tea in the garden on Saturday, hosted by Bernideen at Bernideen's Tea Time Blog.
After seeing many of my blogging friends already decorated for autumn, I felt it was time to pull out my few things.
What better way way to celebrate the coming of this season than with a tea that has a perfect blend of orange peel, cinnamon and caramel called Caramel Spice.
Many times I just fancy my tea in a mug, this pretty sunflower one was filled with chocolate as a thank you gift after a garden presentation I did at a library.
Although we don't have any autumn china, I've saved this rustic coloured cream and sugar from back in the days when everything we had was browns and oranges...that would be the early 70's.  :-)
The sweets with our tea today are simple, green tea cookies served on a sunflower plate.
A small side table with the tea tray was placed in front of the Limelight hydrangea for our tea, thankfully the weather was warm enough to still be outside.  I hope you will visit my lovely hostess and her guests.

  1. That's a lovely autumn tea. The mug is super cute.
    We still have summer weather, but I am looking forward to cooler days.
    Have a nice weekend!

  2. It feels like summer here, so tea in the garden would be perfect. I have mugs that sit unused for months and then I take a liking to them and they come to the front of the cupboard for a little while.

  7. Hi Judith,
    What a nice Autumn tea. I oftentimes have tea in a mug myself, mostly because it holds more. I haven't even started my Fall decorating yet. Hope you're having a nice weekend.

    Blessings,
    Sandi
