YOU ARE QUEEN FOR A DAY for "Tea In The Garden"

Welcome to Tea In The Garden and I have picked You to be Queen For A Day:

Please have a seat in the chair and put your feet up (after you move the teacup of course)!

Today I am sharing a bunting I made last week with the cards I received in the Facebook group Afternoon Tea Across America in our Victoria Day card exchange. 

 I also am sharing an appliqued and embroidered vintage topper I found earlier this summer:

Please pour yourself a cup of tea.  We are on the side of the backyard garden by the entrance which features an old door.

In our card exchange we each put little tuck in gifts in the cards  and I received this Queen Elizabeth egg cozy from Vicki from Florida.  I love the red poppies that are appliqued.  I can't imagine doing this project.

Of course the garden has gone wild with Queen Anne's Lace but that is alright with me!



  1. Oh how CUTE!!!!!

    Bernideen you have outdone yourself, ma'am.

    Two things keeping me from being able to do a tea post: my daughter had to borrow my camera and my little sister just had surgery yesterday, so I have to live teatime vicariously through all your bloggin tea sisters.

    This "Queen for a Day" one is adorable - totally ♥ that cosy!

  2. ich liebe ihren garten und das alte vogelhäuschen!!! alles liebe von angie

  3. Lovely garden party! Love the bunting...so cute! And the poppy tablecloth is lovely! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  4. If you could have heard me when I saw your egg cozy! I have never seen one, and of the Queen to boot! Love the them,and all your treasures. I have a lemon birdie too that I love. Last week we held a British Themed 40th for a member of our Jane Austen group, what a hoot! Cheers!

  5. Hi: Those gifts are just beautiful. Love the egg cozy. Your yard looks wonderful. I have always loved it. Have a great week. Blessings, Martha

  6. Thank you Bernideen, what an honour to be Queen for the day.... I dictate that....ha ha ha it's all fun!
    How clever of you to create bunting from your cards.

    I'm a Queen Anne's Lace fan too, love the frothy lace cards peeping through flowers in the garden.

    Many thank you for hosting!

  7. What a fun tea time you have come up with! I like your pair of rosey tea cups so much that I simply had to pin them to my Tea Cup Tuesday Pinterest Board, linking directly to your blog post. It was is so nice sharing Tea Cup Tuesday with you. My blog is marywaldsvintageplace.blogspot.com stop by for tea cup fun, and say "hi".

  8. Hi Bernideen,
    I hope you don't mind that I didn't feature a pretty teacup this week. My big kids love the newest addition to my son's family and were excited about me sharing it. Next week I promise to return to pretties and china. I love your tea in the garden today and that chair is lovely. I would love to be queen today thank you very much. Have a wonderful week! Karen

  9. Dear Bernideen,
    God Save the Queen! Fun posting! Ruthie

  10. How nice to be Queen for the Day, Bernideen! I think we would all love that in your pretty setting. Your bunting is so pretty and your egg cozy, too. The poppy table covering is beautiful! Thank you for hosting your special party.


  11. Your little Queen cozy is s cute! Thanks for hosting!

  12. How delightful! This may be my favorite Tea in the Garden of 2014 (so far!).

  13. Queen Anne's lace is so pretty and very appropriate for your Queen for a day tea! The Queen Elizabeth egg cozy is very cool--and a great addition to the table. Lovely tablecloth, by the way. I really like the silver teapot too and the great banner in the background! Have a great week :)

  14. You are such a gracious hostess Bernideen, treating us like a queen to come for tea. Another gorgeous table topper and the sweet birdie china.
    Let me just grab my tiara and I'll be right over to join you. :-)
    I'll link next week.

  15. It looks as if we could be in the Scottish Highlands! Very cute.

  16. That vintage topper is so pretty!

  17. Oh, Bernideen, I'm late for the party! I hope there's some tea left! :) I love all the lace and applique, and such a comfy chair with a foot rest for relaxing by. The garden looks so pretty. Thanks for hosting!

  18. What a lovely party! Love every little bit - especially all the QAL .

  19. Another lovely tea setting, Bernideen! I do love your linens and that door with the darling bird house!


  20. What a very clever idea for all the cards to make bunting. I love it.

  21. I love the idea of the bunting! and I really love that table topper!

  22. This was so marvelous, Bernideen - I loved it. I've been out of sync with tea time blog parties - I hope to get back into the rhythm this week! I do appreciate you sharing with A Return to Loveliness,

  23. Loved putting my feet up and being Queen for the Day, Bernideen! Everything is lovely and that tablecloth is fabulous! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
