Happy Birthday! Lady Katherine of "Lady Katherine Tea Parlor" !
It is her special day today!

She wanted to celebrate her birthday with us so she is having a tea party meme for today! I can't wait to see who joined in. As always, I'm a little late, but I love birthday parties so I'm joining in and hopefully Lady Katherine wouldn't mind...

I have a secret... I love teacups and saucers and this is where I don't mind having fine china to play with! But, I haven't started this love until I came across this beautiful set just recently.

To help Lady Katherine have the very best birthday today, I serve my herbal "Spearmint Lavender" tea from Treleela Organic, on my very pretty, Sheffield "Blue Whisper" teacup and what I call "bon-bon" bowl. I also wish to share some peanut butter cookie sandwiches. I found some great pansies to complete the vignette. Isn't it beautiful?

To give it an Asian twist, I served it on my bamboo tray with an ivory placemat on top.

Lady Katherine, I leave with you deep purple pansies, my favorite color.

Purple has been used by royalty and is considered a "regal" color.

A fitting color for a "Lady" like you.

I wish you a wonderful birthday!
