An Easter Tea on Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, dear readers! I hope this week of Easter finds you in good health and enjoying the beautiful spring season. Today, I am thrilled to be a guest for Tea on Tuesday. On the third Tuesday of each month my sweet friends, Pam from Everyday Living and Mary from Home is Where the Boat Is, share their love of tea. You will find images and links to their beautiful tea settings at the end of this post.

Easter is one of my most favorite holidays. It is a special time of rebirth and hope. Each year, I look forward to hosting my family for an Easter dinner with ham and all of the trimmings.

It was my hope to set an Easter tea outdoors, but mother nature wouldn’t allow it. Therefore, the next best thing was my sitting room.

Lenox Butterfly Meadow seemed to be the perfect dishware for an Easter tea. I love its pretty floral pattern and the sweet ladybugs, butterflies, bees, and dragonflies compliment the florals perfectly.

You cannot have tea without a few treats. Iced sugar cookies and jellybeans are the perfect accompaniment to a warm cup of Earl Grey tea. Early Grey is my favorite flavor of tea. Little chocolate eggs can be found on the other side of the tea table.

“People celebrate Easter with their near and dear ones. Nothing can be a better holiday to spend with your family than to celebrate the journey of the life of Jesus.”-Roma Downey

Mr. and Mrs. Bunny decided to join the tea party.

“The entire plan for the future has its key in the resurrection.”-Billy Graham

The floral arrangement for my tea table was simple and a lot of fun to create. First, I visited my local home and garden store where I purchased a few potted flowers. Next, I simply lined a basket with plastic and filled it with violas, ranunculus, creeping phlox, and dusty miller. Lastly, I placed Spanish moss around the base of the basket and tied a blue checked bow to the handle. In addition to the tea table, I will be using this arrangement as a centerpiece on my Easter buffet. Later, I will plant the flowers outdoors.

“The very first Easter taught us this: that life never ends and love never dies.”-Kate McGahan

“I believe in Christ like I believe in the sun not because I can see it, but by it I can see everything else.”

-C.S. Lewis

Friends, I am so happy that you joined me for tea on this special week of Easter. Your visits and kind words always bring me joy. May you have a most blessed and peaceful Holy week and a very happy Easter.

  10. Shannon, your little tea party is beautiful and yummy looking. I love Mr. and Mrs. Bunny and I’ve always loved the Lennox butterfly Meadow dishware. Even though we like to be out in the bright sun for a tea party, I have to admit I love the rain. Also, there’s something about the pitter patter of raindrops on the window that I look forward to. We are so blessed and God gives us rain when we need it whether we know it or not, blessings always

  11. I so enjoyed your lovely teatime, Shannon. I have a coffee table like yours and I love it. Your centerpiece is so pretty and such an easy idea, plus planted later. I’d love to be with you in your sitting room sharing some Earl Grey and treats. May you have a wonderful Holy Week and Happy Easter blessings to you.

  12. So sweet, cheerful and inviting ❤️
