Decor-a-Tea – Week 3   23 comments

March 30 – April 5

Decor-a-Tea
Share ideas and pictures that incorporate tea and/or tea themes into home decor. Displays, art, prints, fabrics, and collection all count in this category. Do you use teapots and teacups as a part of your home decor? If so, describe how.

I think this week’s theme is one of my favorites in the blogathon.  As part of my decorating during the seasons/holidays, my dining room table is always set with the current theme.  This week, I put away the Easter decor and set the table for a spring garden tea party.

This tea is all about flowers and welcoming spring.  One of the cups on the table is quite unique.  It is heart shaped.  You really can’t tell it is heart shaped unless you see it with some tea in it.  So, let me pour you cup of some beloved tea…

My table will be set until Memorial Day, which means…

Kettle’s on, cups are waiting,
Favorite chairs, anticipating,
No matter what I have to do,
My friend, there’s always time for you.
D Morgan
