A Tea for Spring

Welcome friends for tea this week.  After being away all weekend and starting in to my spring cleaning (have you started yours yet?)  I decided to put a 'virtual' tea together from my photos.
Last year I made these bird nest cookies which were perfect for spring.
And I baked a chocolate cupcake for this gum paste bluebird chick to sit on.
The ceramic bunny I made back in the 70's sits on the hall table each year.
A cornflower teacup with an herbal tea.
Chocolate croissants from the bakery.
I'm linking with these lovely hosts, I hope you'll visit them and their guests for tea.

  2. A perfectly darling tea with all the sweet Easter things for decoration. Your little rabbit looks tentative with his ears back that way. Just as well...rabbits and gardeners don't always get along.

  9. Tell me, does gum paste have a good taste? Do you know if fondant has a good taste? I 'm taking Cake Decorating classes and those are the next course....:)JP

  10. These are really sweet Easter treats Judith. Those croissants look delicious and the little bluebird on the cupcake is adorable. I haven't done much spring cleaning here yet. I should get at it before the weather turns nice. IF the weather turns nice. :)
