A BEAUTIFUL DAY for "Tea In The Garden"

Today is my "Tea In The Garden" Blog Party. 

 On June 10th it will be my 100th "Tea In The Garden" Blog Post since I first started this blog party back in 2009.  I hope you will join in on that special day! If you are interested in seeing some past teas from my former Colorado garden just go to HERE.

I have been working in my yard and I think for the moment I have completed all my digging.  I think my knees have had just about all the fun they can stand.  In about a month we are having a patio put in the back which we are really excited about.  After the patio goes in - I will have to show you the backyard area.

I am sharing some photos taken late yesterday afternoon and a new antique Eastlake table for two that I got at an Estate Sale for just $20.00.  Estate Sales are really big here in Columbia and I have found several things lately.  Here are the lower details of the table and now I must be looking for some more of these old wooden chairs as I am short on chairs.

The tall skinny leaf greenery in this vase is bamboo which was planted in our yard by the people who lived here before. The people were Chinese and used the bamboo to hold up their tomatoes.
 We plan
to not let it run a muck.

The little English bone china 3 piece creamer and sugar with tray was
 something I found in Denver before we moved.

 You are invited to set up a tea in your garden, porch, sun room or patio and link it from your blog to this one. Here is a new logo you can post on your blog if you like:

  1. Oh my word, Bernideen - what a gorgeous tea time in the garden you have put together! Everything looks so feminine and beautiful!

    I can't even believe it is coming up on 100 of your TTitG parties, wow! That's so awesome, congrats on a milestone! I actually squealed out loud realizing that it is time for your garden series - one of the highlights of our blogging tea time worlds, for certain.

    Have a wonderful and fabulous weekend, sweet friend. Hugs. ♥

  2. It must be exciting seeing the tea setting possibilities for your new gardens Bernideen. A little cool here right now with only daffodils and tulips blooming but I look forward to tea in my garden again this summer.
    I look forward to seeing your finished patio and yard.

  3. Hi Bernideen,
    I love, love, love your hydrangeas and peonies! Such gorgeous pastel tones! Your teapot and teacup, creamer and sugar are so pretty today too. Is it okay if I link this post up to your Monday/Tuesday linky party? I'm finding it hard to create more than one post a week. Thank you for hosting this fun Garden Party! Wow! 100 outdoor tea times. You are amazing! Have a Wonderful Weekend. Blessings, Karen

  4. So pretty Bernideen! I love our teapot and the Shelley...of course! My post publishes this evening but isn' t a tea post as am out of town. Have a wonderful week!

  5. Bernideen, those lace covered pillows are beautiful. Your setting is enticing too. Beautiful!

  6. I'm so glad that you're enjoying your stunning garden with a lovely weather, we're having lots of rain, lately, which is, to be honest, so very welcome !

    May your weekend be blessed with joy, dearest Bernideen, sending my dearest love to you

  7. Very Lovely! I am so excited for you in this new phase of your life! I know you will never regret retirement. I certainly have not been bored one day!

  8. A beautiful new garden for tea! Just lovely!

  9. Oh my Bernideen, 100 tea time posts??? How exciting and what an accomplishment. Congratulations. You should be very proud.

    I love your garden tea. It is simply gorgeous. But my heart has been stolen by those stunning peonies on your lovely table. Thank you for inviting for hosting such a sweet and elegant party. Please keep in going.

    Best wishes,


  10. Congratulations on your 100th tea! Everything looks the vintage linens and china tea pieces.. Have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Your tea in the is just so charming, Bernideen. What a happy place you have for tea, with your pond, gorgeous flowers and all your yard decor. Your new table and chairs were certainly a wonderful buy, and they went to the perfect person to love and use them. Thanks for hosting, and I hope I get better at remembering to come by on Fridays.

  12. This is so pretty, Bernideen. Such a lovely setting and your china is gorgeous. We are getting a heavy rain here this weekend. I guess the ground needs it but oh, for warm sunny weather....I am taking a short break this weekend from posting and will be back on Monday for my blog party. Enjoy your day.


  13. It is just those peonies too!


  14. You always make everything so pretty. I love the little creamer and sugar.

  15. What a lovely idea to host a tea garden party, Bernideen. And Thanks for inviting me to the next one. I shall try to take some "tea photos" in my garden, too.

    Hope you have a lovely week-end! Ours is filled with... losts of rain and cold wind. I almost feels like the end of winter again instead of the glorious sommer weather we had on mother's day.

    Warm wishes from Germany

  16. Your gardens are so pretty, Bernideen! I'm also admiring the new Eastlake table (perfect for tea time!) that you acquired. What a great bargain!

  17. Bernideen, what a lovely setting for a lovely woman! Looking forward to seeing your new patio. My patio needs some serious help right now, but the gazebo is ready to go -- tea parties, here I come!

  18. Bernideen I am loving your new home. That shot with the water garden in the background is just fabulous! Thanks for joining Home Sweet Home!

  19. Your table settings are always so beautiful, Bernideen, and your tea in the garden is just delightful. Thanks so much for linking up with Vintage Charm!

  20. Bernideen this is so pretty! I am featuring it today!
