Please join me for a morning Easter Tea alfresco to celebrate new beginnings, the welcoming of spring and many other blessings.
Since the weather has been so warm, we'll have the tea in my backyard. The word "alfresco" sounds more appealing than backyard. (In reality the weather was too warm and I had to move the tea inside.)
The table is full of tea, food and Easter decor. I get so much happiness from setting holiday and themed tables. Don't you?
Here is your seat...place card holder filled with jelly beans.

Today's featured teacup is a brand new Royal Patrician from England. The pattern is Aurora.
The soft pastel flowers on the teacup are perfect for an Easter tea.
The Republic of Tea's Downton Estate Blend will be served. I prefer loose tea over bagged tea, but have to say this is one of my favorite black teas. The vanilla softens the bergamot in the early grey for a unique taste. This tea can be purchased at Cost Plus World Market stores and unfortunately not online. This tea is also a fun conversation starter for Downton Abbey recaps.
Scones and croissants along with fruit salad will be served. I like to add golden raisins to my buttery scones.
" 'Twas Easter-Sunday.
The full blossomed trees filled all the air with fragrance and with joy."
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Have a beautiful Easter weekend and thank you for joining me for tea.
