Welcome friends for tea this week. On our July 1 Canada Day long weekend DH and I went to the Promenade Days in the city north of us to wander around the vendors and had lunch in an Irish Pub. It turns out there is a tea room there called "English & Miller" that I didn't know about but I did buy something from their booth and plan to go for tea another time.
The tube itself is kind of pretty and a good storage place for the cutlery it holds.
Durable with stainless steel heads the "Vintage Rose" is even dishwasher safe. There were a few other colours too but the pink was calling to me.
We were having company for dinner a couple of days later so I decided to go with a touch of pink on the table. The tablecloth you see is from Lennox, the same as my dishes in the "Butterfly Meadow" pattern.
I wasn't going to photograph everything we ate but did remember to snap the dessert I made. Meringue nests filled with custard and topped with fresh picked strawberries. A dollop of whip cream and I decided to stick a cookie in the back of each. The nests are a PC product I've been wanting to try and they were very nice.
Of course we had tea with our dessert and it was served in my Lavender Rose tea pot which you've all seen before so no need to show it again.
