T is for Tea Party!

Please join me for tea!   I'm very excited about the weather here in Montreal.  Its so beautiful that I could probably entertain every one dans le jardin (in the garden).  I'm so happy that you can join me for a special  TEA PARTY  brought to you by the letter T.
  PLEASE, TAKE A SEAT:

  I'm using my best china especially for you:

This fancy teapot was something that I came across and fell in love with.  At first, I thought it was a coffee pot but its a more stylish, elongated tea pot.  I love it!  I will be brewing a nice pot of tea in honor of your visit.

I'm in love with Moroccan tea glasses and  these look lovely at a tea party! I was living in Qatar last year and bought these glasses as well as a full Arabian Tea set (picture above)
 I will also be serving mint tea which is very popular in the Middle East. It was surprising to learn that men only are in charge of serving it....
  I added a little color to the table by adding some flowers!
 


 
  No tea party is complete without a few treats!
Scrumptious Treats!
 
 My tea party  consist of  finger foods such as little sandwiches.  When I was little my mom threw me a birthday tea party and we had petits fours like the ones pictured above! They are so simple and add a fun touch to any kind of party!
 
 
I love my metal lace cake pedestal  for serving either cupcakes or petits fours!
I do hope You  enjoyed the Tea Party!  Please come again!

  20. Anne-Marie, thank you so much for leaving a comment on my blog and for inviting me to visit your blog. I'm thrilled that I found you online and I think that your blog is absolutely delightful. I really enjoyed the "tea party" and you are a treasured hostess. The tea cups and saucers are beautiful and the sweet treats are to die for.
    So glad to meet you.

  21. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I love your table! What a great room. That's one thing I miss living here in AZ--everything is so relatively new that there is little character.
    We went to Morocco two years ago and I must say it is one of my favorite places ever. EVER!
    I'm adding you to my blogroll. I'll be back!

  34. absolutely gorgeous tea party! what time shall i be there?
    i think the elongated tea pot might be a chocolate pot...i inherited something similar from my gran many years ago...and she told me that it was meant to hold and serve hot chocolate. but that doesn't mean it can't hold tea!

  40. Ann-Marie Nice to "meet" you! I love and totally agree with your philosophy on gratitude! You have a beautiful collection of teacups and tea pots. They are among my "favorite things" too--and petit fours certainly are--It's probably a good thing I cannot master making them at home :)

  42. Bonjour! C'est moi, Laurie.Como ca va? From Cajun Louisiana transplated in Honduras. Your post is beautiful, and makes me miss my sister's tea shop near New Orleans. I have a small collection of cups, and I used to host an annual teacher tea in August to buck up the teachers with tea and scones before another school year. You brought back some great memories. Merci!
