Pink For A Hot Summer Eclipse Day

Hello Dear Tea Friends!

It's a very hot summer day today!
As Bernideen noticed from my dark pics, I took these on the the day of the eclipse.

The china teacup and cream and sugar are Royal Albert's Bridesmaid Rose.

And you know this is one of my favourite pink teapots  ~ a Sadler cube.

The tea plates are Royal Albert's Serena.

Isn't it fun to mix and match pink rosy china?

I had to search the garden shops for this pretty shade of pale pink petunias. 

I must apologize because
my grass is very burnt from our scorching summer days, water restrictions and our absence due to

weekly visits to the cottage.

I hope that you are managing to stay cool. 

Thank you for your visit today!

See you next time!

This week I plan to visit these beautiful blogspots:

Hope to see you there!

    1. Awe. Thank you Charlotte! You are too kind!

  3. Karen, I've never really been that "into" pink, but even I can't resist this pink tea! I love that RA tea set and your Sadler cube teapot. Gorgeous!

  4. I loved your post and I thought you could have just told us this as an "Eclipse Tea Time" party and we would have been amazed. After all, whose to know as Julia Child used to say! Love your table setting and Serena is always so lovely. Your pink Sadler is a delight. Thanks for sharing and I hope you can find the book! Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you Bernideen,
      I added the Eclipse to my posting now. You are so observant ~ I did take the pics on the day of the Eclipse. Your title would have been much better!

  5. Happy Pink Saturday, Karen. Thank you for always making Pink Saturdays special.♥

    You always amaze me. You have the most beautiful things, and your style is inviting and lovely.

  6. What a wonderful teatime!!!Love your gorgeous porcelain,so beautiful!Have a lovely weekend!

  7. How very charming all around!! I DO love pink. In the thumbnail, I mistook your lovely cushion for a beautifully-crocheted tea cozy! Wishful thinking---I'd love to have one.


  8. One of my most favorite in all.. the Royal Albert bridesmaid rose pattern .. funny though I never purchased any.. it looks so pretty.. lucky you.. Happy Sunday love and hugs Janice

  9. I happened back - perfect Eclipse setting!

  10. Perfectly lovely! I love the eclipse factor in the photography...what a memory to cherish!

  11. Wanted to let you know that this post is being featured on my Pink Saturday post this weekend as "the one with the most clicks". Everyone loves your beautiful collection and tea parties.

    Thanks for sharing, Karen. And, many thanks for always making Pink Saturday special.♥♥♥

  12. The Sudler teapot is to die for! I've seen it in other colors and I love them all, specially your pink one and the tea dishes too.
    Great memories for you to keep on the Eclipse day.
    I saw you featured at Pink Sat.
    Have a nice weekend.

  13. Oooooooh!!! Magnificent pink tea party! Would love to join you there in the shade...

  14. Such a pretty blushing pink teatime! Perfect for you! I have always loved that pattern, but not seen often now. Your wicker and pink petunias make a perfect setting! Wonderful! I apologize for being late visiting! The last few weeks have been a whirl with birthday, sinus problems, friends visiting and then a smoke escape with a last minute cruise…only to return to more smoke…causing a sinus infection! Oh well…but I am almost up to speed…yay!
    Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!
