Spring Tea ala Cart




Any bunny
want
to join me
for tea?


I love this Ethan Allen tea cart that I found at an estate sale. Both sides open up if needed.  There is a folding handle bar on one end to make the cart easy to push.  The bottom shelf holds some white and pink and white platters.  There is a shelf in the middle that slides in or out.



I enjoy decorating the cart for different seasons and holidays.



I found this two tier metal basket online at Pfaltzgraff.  It holds a number of different tins filled with teas, hot cocoa, and candy.  You can see a pretty pink and white plate peeking out from behind the tins on the bottom tier.


I thought this would be the perfect place for this Jim Shore Easter Basket.  I love that it is all hand painted wood.  The little chickie has the sweetest face.


I absolutely love the little black and white poodles. They are actually salt and pepper shakers. Little Bear is rather fold of them too.

And how could we have a spring tea party without a pink and white polka dot teapot and tray?



And for those that prefer coffee, have I got a cup for you! This big Starbucks coffee mug was a Christmas gift from my sweet husband. I plan on planting flowers in it when the weather turns more agreeable.


Thank you for stopping in for a cup of coffee, tea, and a little something sweet!

    1. I'm partial to the teapot and tray and poodles too. I think I found each of these on Zulily a while ago.

I usually need a big cuppa like that in the morning :) Thank you for your very kind visits, too, my friend. Sending hugs xo Karen

    1. Thank you, sweet Kitty! I was so excited when I spotted the tea cart at the estate sale. There were tea cups and lamps on top of it. I asked if it was also for sale and the answer was yes. I moved those cups and lamps off of it pretty fast!
