Hey friends! Welcome to the Tea and Roses blog hop hosted by Amber at Follow The Yellow Brick Home! Today and tomorrow I’m joining 11 other talented bloggers, each bringing you their personal spin on the tea and roses theme!
We are following the blog hop with a Spring Tea Party link up on May 26-27, so be sure to stop back by there then to join in the fun!
We’re also excited to host a $75 Amazon gift card giveaway! You can enter through the Rafflecopter widget at the end of this post!
Now, on to my farmhouse style tea and roses party!
I set up my tea party in our dining room right off our kitchen. We have an open floor plan, but the dining room is off to the side a bit through this archway.
This room is currently my favorite room in our home because it is the most finished decor-wise. 🙂
I refinished both the hutch and dining set.
All of the roses are from our garden except the two bouquets, which are from Costco. You can’t beat Costco for beautiful fresh flowers that don’t break the bank!
The china set was my grandmother’s. The tea set below I got when I was in East Berlin in 1985. I’m always super careful with it because if I ever break any of it, there’s probably no way I could find any replacements!
Don’t the chocolate dipped shortbread look delicious? Trust me, they are 🙂 I got them from Costco too!
Our wine bar is tucked away in the corner of our dining room.
This used to be an old cart that my dad used to reload his gun rounds (he was an avid hunter). When he passed, I refinished it to what you see here.
This tea set is from East Berlin as well. I have several china sets and always wonder if I should find new homes for some of the sets, but I always find ways to incorporate them into my blog posts, which of course totally justifies keeping them. 🙂
Since this is a tea party theme, I couldn’t resist adding some Alice in Wonderland touches! The best part? They’re free printables you can get too! I got the clipboard graphic from Emily Rudolph – The DIY Daredevil and the playing cards from Southbound Bride.
I filled the teacups in the hutch with what I call chicken egg “shorts.” Occasionally my regular-sized hens will lay tiny eggs, sometimes as small as song bird eggs. I don’t mind, as I dry them out and use them as decor!
