Tea Parties

Here at Lobley Cottage we threw a get together for family members. The guests were served Flammkuchen on Blue and White Transfer Ware prettily displayed on a 1950's embroidered table cloth. There were roast potatoes, roasted carrots, and then for afterwards there was Coffee Cake and cream. All lovingly home made. My husband and I love to show hospitality especially when we can use all of our favourite pieces of home ware. My kitchen shelves are all full of the bits and pieces I have collected over the years. Now that we have all that we could possibly want or keep we want to start selling the things that seem to catch our eyes from all over the place! If you enjoy hosting tea parties or just enjoy going to them and want to have a go at hosting one yourself. Let us help you. We have lots of ideas, photos, things to buy and (soon to come) recipes for you to share with us. Take a look around our other pages under our blog title and you shall find lots more from us. I hope you all have a beautiful day!

Being able to display your home made goodies and beautiful china is one of the many joys of hosting a tea party. A wonderful setting helps guests have an amazing and relaxing time. Beautiful things always pluck up conversations.

 Vintage serving dishes always makes home made dishes look incredible. They give a very rustic feel to an occasion.

 You don't always necessarily have to have extravagant table cloths, glasses or cutlery to make something look lovely. Quite often plain is best it gives a relaxed feeling to an event in a simple yet elegant way.
