A Pink Tea for Autumn

Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage is hosting A Pink Tea today.

 My home is all dressed for Fall.






The pink and fall colors seem to coordinate with each other.

 My Sadler teapot is the Princess of Pink.



I love using my pink depression glassware to set a pretty table.




In honor and memory of my BFF who lost her battle with breast cancer 9 years ago.   I have used the pink table cloth and lace table cloth that belonged to Diana.  She was the most gracious hostess and loved tea parties.

Pink is such a devine color for the fall. Also Sadler has so many wonderful teapots. Your is real special. Your depression glass shows the American spirit was still active and alive even in those horrible years in the 1930's.

Hi Jocelyn,
What a pretty table setting and a beautiful tribute to your friend! I love your pink depression glass and all the china pieces are so lovely together. Love the pink teapot! I am always amazed at how well florals and china work together. The Autumn colours and pinks just look splendid together. Thank you for sharing your beautiful table at my Pink Tea Party and have a delightful week.
