It's Mother's Day and I thought I'd set a little table
and invite mom to sit down and have a bit of tea!
I've added two more cups just in case my two girls happen to stop by.
Actually, Mom and I will also be joining my children later in the
day to celebrate Mom's Day!
Earl Grey Tea (my favorite!)
Maple Brown Sugar Bundt Cake (Thank you Trader's Joes!)
Coconut Macaroons that I partially dipped in melted chocolate.
If you look just below the tabletop, you will notice this beautiful
hand-embroidered tablecloth. Hand-embroidered by
She worked this tablecloth many years ago while she was
pregnant with my younger sister.
Here is a close up of the butterfly and flowers. Mom learned as a
child to embroidery by her grandmother, my great-grandmother.
Here it is on the other side. Such beauty! It actually continues all the
way around. Mom keeps it pressed, hanging, and ready to use!
We will be drinking our tea in these pretty cups and saucers.
I bought eight of these cups and saucers for my mom years ago.
(I bought eight for me too!) Do any of you recall Mervyn's?
Mervyn's had a wonderful home section. They went out of business
and many of their vacant stores became Kohl's. I miss Mervyn's but I'm so
very happy to have these cups and saucers. They are actually one
of the few blue things I own. I just don't have a lot of blue in my
home. I was sold on the combination of the pink roses and the rims of gold.
So very pretty!
I will be happily joining these parties this week:
Cuisine Kathleen's Let's Dish on Wednesday
Susan's Between Naps on the Porch Tablescape Thursday
The Tablescaper's Seasonal Sunday Mother's Day
And, of course, I'm wishing all of you Mom's out there
a very special and Happy Mother's Day!
