Tea-Time Tuesday & The Bears Are Invited!
It is Tea-cup Tuesday, or All Things Tea ! To see other lovely teacups, tea parties , and wonderful tea times click onto these ladies' names : Terri *, Martha *, Lady Katherine*,and Wanda*, after you have joined the teddy bears and my granddaughters for tea! Please stay, we like company for tea. I am using my favorite china. I know, I have shown it before on my blog, but it is my favorite and we are using it today. "Blue Danube was inspired by designs from the Chinese Yuan Dynasty period ( 1260-1368 A.D. )...The original design has been in production for more than 200 years." Blue Danube @ Dinnerware Depot I have enough Blue Danube to host a dinner for at least 6 , with a few extra plates and lots of serving dishes. Today one of my Blue Danube pitchers holds flowers for our tea party. "Created in 1951, Blue Danube is an exquisite pattern, underglazed on translucent porcelain. Blue Danube is under glazed and fired at temperatures in excess of 2000 degrees, making each piece highly chip resistant..." Blue Danube @ Dinnerware Depot. The little teddy bears are having tea in their log tea set underneath the bouquet of flowers in my pitcher.
Tea today is served with fruit and Oslo Kringle *. Just click onto the asterisk to get the very easy, but delicious recipe for this dessert.The Granddaughters requested hot cocoa in their tea pot yet again. Sigh...oh all right, hot cocoa it is. Just for them you know, and the little bears. It has been a long time since a granddaughter has taken them out for tea, a whole year you know. I guess a treat is well deserved after such a long time stuck in the doll house.Besides, hot cocoa is so reviving, especially for little girls and bears!
Let's not forget to scrape up every bit of frosting, we need our strength to play with each other and the bears.
