March Tea Trolley and Two Special Guests ...



If you live in the GTA , especially north of Hwy 7 can you believe the snow and cold temps we had last week? I know it's normal for March ~ but with the mild temps we have been spoiled with and little snow I can't help but be shocked. Despite the cold the sun was out ... and with the hopes that mild spring like temps will return, the tea trolley has been moved from my writing area to the kitchen sitting area.

Welcome to afternoon tea, my friends ~ I hope you enjoy the snow view out the terrace doors, while cozy warm inside sipping on some warm oolong tea.



You can curl up in a chair, and take a few moments to relax...

The pink tulips will indulge our dreams for warm temps....
I love the delicate scallops on the petal edges ... and the touch of white that graces the pink petals. Our home assistant says they have a pretty light scent ... spring fresh, sadly I'm not smelling them, hopefully my smelling sense will kick in, so I too can breathe in their spring fresh fragrance!!


I chose these teacups today, for their colourful flowers, a garden in our hands...


These lovelies really do warm up the insides on this cold day....


The teacups are hand made by Fifth Avenue Collection


Truly a garden in our hand ... the brilliance of the flowers against the gold back ground....


Mr. G. has offered to serve us our tea today ....


Since we are all watching our waist lines, an apple strudel has been sliced into bite size, so no guilt.. enjoy!!  


Tea is served!

Hopefully we'll be blessed with these lovelies in the garden soon....
Hmmm... looks like there are some bunny ears in that bowl... could it be Mr. Easter Bunny ?


Look who has joined us for tea this afternoon, little Dolce, he loves sitting by the tea trolley...

Thank you for stopping by for tea ...

    Wow, what a fabulous combination! Snow outside, warm scenes inside with lovely tulips and beautiful china, apple strudel and tea! Love Dolce under the tea trolly; he's so cute.
    Have a great week and indeed, I too hope that your smelling sense will further develop as it gives one joy.

    Love to you both,

    Beautiful arrangement on your tea trolley. I love your floral cups and if that can't put a spring in your step nothing will. What a sweet lil dog. C~U~T~E.

  12. Hello Celia
    What a gorgeous pattern and colours on the china. A nice surprise at the end of your post with that sweet little face laying on his blue blanket.
    We have little to no snow left and I'll be happy if it stays this way.
    Have a great week.

  13. I don't want to tell you...
    Ok I will...
    It was almost 66 degrees on the weekend in the very southern tip of Ontario ;)
    I collect tea cups but they're put away...you know because I have a destructive lab and a three year old ;)
    Those cups are lovely ;) the whole set up is very calming.

  14. Oh little Dolce is so sweet! I have two sweet Yorkies myself, they would love to meet your little one!

    Your post is gorgeous! I adore how you present your images. And I adore your tea tray! The tea cups are so very pretty and the tea pot such a beauty! What a lovely setting for tea!
    Hugs,

  16. Celia;

    No, I didn't come over here just because you commented on my post, I hate it when people do that to me. Because of school I've slacked off in reading, but today is a snow day so I have time to catch up and I'm glad I did! I LOVE that tea set! So is Dolce a boy or girl? My little Martini could use a playmate and we could go off riding harleys! Great idea, right?
