In the Pink - Afternoon Tea


I love pink! And having an In the Pink Afternoon Tea is so delightful.

I found this lovely Paragon pink teacup at an Antique Mall on our recent trip.

These beautiful flowers were a Mother's Day gift from my son.

Perfect for my Pink Tea.

White chargers and pink depression glass dishes.

The lace tablecloth is vintage as it was a gift from my Mother over 30 years ago.

I'm joining these other tea parties -

What a nice idea - an 'In the Pink' Tea. The table looks lovely and so inviting and cheery with the floral bouquet to top it off. The lace tablecloth is beautiful - a very cherished gift, I'm sure.

I love your tablecloth. Lace is a favorite of mine. I also enjoy using quilts as a tablecloth. Pretty tiered piece on your table also. I am glad to have found you and must find your follow button.
