I promised to share more photos from the shoot yesterday and thought that you might enjoy seeing our Tea Table as it is set.
The Art of Afternoon Tea can transport you to a wonderful world of bliss and tranquility. Everyday moments become a celebration when tea is included. Let your occasion, theme and guest list guide you as you plan and prepare your table.
Afternoon Tea is, by tradition, a light meal. Setting the table is by far the best way to add grace and beauty to the menu.
There are some guidlines to make it easy and enjoyable for you:
Keep in mind that the aroma of the tea and food should be the first consideration when choosing to accessorize your table.

I must give credit to two wonderful ladies, Jenny at Teapartygirl.com and Alice at Gracioushospitality for tea-rific information. I did alot of research on setting a tea table. Another great source was Nan at TeaGraces.com , she has a book and dvd too!
I highly recommend visiting these sights and enjoying their posts-with a cup of tea ofcourse!
