A Daffodil Tea

Welcome friends for tea this week.  Right now as the tulips are just starting to open, a couple of the local churches are having their annual tulip tea.  We still have daffodils blooming so I thought it would be nice to honour this bulb with a tea.
These daffodils are called 'Glenn White' and appropriately in the garden as this is my husband's name.  (with 2 N's)
 This is 'Fragrant Rose' that has a small fragrant cup.
I like this tablecloth with the daffodils, perfect for a spring tea.
 A lemon curd-filled coffee cake that is scrumptious.  I'd like to say I baked it, but it's store bought.
A few yellow teacups to match the colour scheme and there is 'Monk's Blend' brewing; a favourite that I used to have at the Princely Pear Tea Room when it was still open.
Thank you to my hosts for the weekly tea parties, I hope you'll visit them and their guests.

Oh Judith...beautiful! Daffs are my favorite flower. Just beautiful! I just have King Alfred. Your setting is lovely. I think the lemon coffee cake looks smashing! Thanks for sharing and linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea! I am taking the next 2 weeks off my son & DIL will be hear from Utah, and who knows what we'll be doing! LOL!

I am jealous, you still daffodils blooming. I only had 5 bloom and they finished in a few days. It was a hard year on my bulbs this year. Pretty tea setting:) hugs, Jen.

Hi Judith,
Oh, your daffys are so pretty! None of my flowers are out yet. The weather can't seem to make up its mind whether to be warm or cold. I much more prefer the warm and I know the posies do too.
Such a pretty tablecloth and your cake does look yummy! Love your teacups and would so love to join you. Thank you for sharing.

Blessings,
Sandi

I gave some Monk's Blend tea to a friend at Christmas as it is one of his favourites. Those Brits do appreciate a good cup of tea! You've created a lovely daffodil tea party, Judith.

Hi Judith,
What a lovely tablecloth you found. I don't think I've seen one with daffodils on it. Your dishes and teacups go great with it. Your coffee cake looks delicious! I love lemon curd!
Happy May days to you,
Nancy

Beth said...

I certainly enjoyed my visit to your "tea party." Lemon curd is one of my favorite things on toast, will have to try it in a coffee cake! And that daffodil tablecloth is soooo pretty!

And thanks for visiting my blog too.

My daffodils are just beginning to bloom. They are lovely. Daffodils makes you feel happy. Lemon Curd is so good in olka kakfyllningar. If you do not have time to do yourself, there's a good idea to buy at the store. I love your tea cups. Alert and happy with their bright yellow colors. Very suitable fabric for a testund with pÄsklijor as a theme. I wish you a wonderful weekend! Zinnia

Hi Judith! I'm back and getting caught up. I LOVE your idea of a daffodil tea – the sweetest spring flower. I wasn't familiar with Glenn White but it's really lovely. I only know of Thalia and white Tete a Tete. We still have some narcissus blooming, too, which was lovely to come home to.

Will catch up more later in the week. I hope all is well. – g
