Strawberry Tea

Nothing like having an outdoor Tea Party with some lady friends and using all the fun things you've collected from garage sales, thrift stores and ebay. Todays theme is STRAWBERRIES!

I set up 4 tables - one rectangle for food and one square  for tea, 2 round for seating:
The large rectangle table was quite wide so I was able to really have some fun with my strawberry collection :
 A picture painted on slate, canisters,a white basket filled with books and vintage fabric,and a strawberry toothpick holder - leaning up against a picnic basket
A vintage makeup case, a strawberry teapot (missing the lid) filled with flowers, strawberry salt and pepper shakers, red doilies, a strawberry serving dish and a yellow bee hive
A pillow, a  welcome sign, a tin sign,  more canisters and a potted plant and another picnic basket

I layered a red checked sheet with a vintage table cloth I bought off ebay

I used 2 round outdoor tables and pushed them together so we were close, more red checked table cloths with squares of vintage fabric in the center, white plates, white napkins with red holders, vintage avon strawberry dessert plates and green water glasses( though they look blue in the picture)
I found 8 red petunias, still fairly nice, at the garden center for only 50 cents and put them in white cups from the dollar store with red checked ribbon and a strawberry tag - they made a nice favor for everyone. The tags read "You're So Berry Sweet!" You can get the picture from the Graphics Fairy

 I used some other strawberry finds to decorate the tables - like these potted plants and candle rings and a large red strawberry cookie jar

and of course my strawberry tea cup - I wish I had a set of these but everyone always brings their own tea cup so it was fine
oh - and of course- Strawberry tea:

I wore my newly made apron and put red checked bows on my red shoes - and we're ready...

Tea,good food,  the outdoors and fellowship with friends - God is good.
