A Birthday Tea Party for Lady Katherine!

I'm having a tea party and you are invited! It's a very special tea party, for you see...


...we are celebrating the birthday of a very special lady...Lady Katherine at Lady Katherine Tea Parlor! And she has invited everyone in blogland to help her celebrate by joining her!


Sooooo....I have put out some of my favorite things in honor of this very special lady!


I have polished up my "new" silver tea pot...a recent thrifting find...and put out my favorite pink depression glass creamer and sugar in the Cubiste pattern. I even found a handy little second sugar...good for holding tea bags or artificial sweetener. Would you like some tea?


I'll let you choose your tea cup! These are my favorites in the French Lunéville Strasbourg pattern. Would you like the rose or the tulip?


Do you take lemon? I am excited to get to use my pink depression glass lemon server! Isn't it wonderful?


Would you like a cookie? One of my sweet students from many moons ago gave me this little crystal and silver server.


There are some little Easter treats in the milk glass bunny dish. This sat on my mom's coffee table at Easter time for as long as I can remember! The pink on the inside of his ears has worn off from years of having my sister and me peek into the dish!

Let's send Lady Katherine a birthday wish while we are drinking our tea!
Happy birthday to you....happy birthday to you...happy birthday, Lady Katherine...happpy birthdaaaaayyyyyy tooooooo yoooooouuuuuuuu!!!!! And many more!!!
And there you have it...my birthday tea party for Lady Katherine! Thank you for dropping in! Please be sure to check by her blog to see who else is participating in the party and make the rounds!

  2. Debbie, This is such an adorable tea party in honor of Lady Katherine! She will be so pleased! I love the little depression lemon holder., and the new Thrift Teapot is divine, and quite the shiny! What's your week like after Easter? I have a house full of company this week, but the week after Easter I'd love to have you over for tea at 4pm one day! Let me know if you'll be in town! ;) ~CC Catherine

    Debbie, you have done a magnificent job displaying all of your pretties for the party. Your new silver tea potting is stunning, and the pink Depression glass lemon server is wonderful.

  19. Debbie, I'm late making my rounds today, but I'm sending Lady K some Happy Birthday wishes! What a lovely idea, and I'm raising a cup of tea in my toast to her! Well, my tea isn't exactly in my toast, but I am toasting her! :-)

    P.S. I found the sweetest little jade green glass woven dish with a tiny white bunny on top...and I WON it today on ebay! So cute. Just hope it gets here in time to use it for the season. But..then bunnies are good all the time..for the most part. Right?
    love and smiles..

  24. Happy Birthday Lady Katherine!
    Debbie, I'll take the Luneville Strasbourg teacup with the tulips thank you. Just love the milk glass bunny and love that the pink has worn off due to you and your sister peeking. That WOULD be memorable. Bet your grandson knows about this bunny.
