A “Teacup Exchange” Tea

Yesterday I attended a fun event at Holly Cottage Tearoom in Newnan, Georgia.  I met Angela of Tea With Friends, Teresa of Southern Touch Catering and Deberah of Everyday Finesse for a two o’clock teatime.

From the left is Teresa, Angela, me and Deberah.  We each have a pot of tea with a cute tea cozy.  They are available in many fabric choices and are one of the items for sale at the tearoom.

This was not only a teacup exchange event, but also a fundraiser for Coweta Pregnancy Services.

We all enjoyed a well brewed pot of tea, as well as a fresh fruit cup and scone with lemon curd, cream and jam.

It was funny that I had been admiring the mismatched saucer and  opened my package to find the same Johnson Brothers pattern “Old British Castles”.  It is such a pretty pattern (especially in pink) with over 45 English castles represented on the various pieces.  My saucer shows Kenilworth Castle in 1792 with two others represented on the cup.  I’ll show you a photo one Teacup Tuesday. 

You can see the other lovely cups on Angela's post about our tea.

What a fun event! Using the tea caddy for serving cream, jam and lemon curd makes an interesting and unique presentation!

What a lovely thing to do. Makes me think of ladies in long gowns and gloves and hats sitting drinking tea.

How wonderful to start catching up on all the tea blog posts I missed while in Wisconsin last week -- and to be able to relive such a fun day with tea friends! (I'm soooo grateful you were willing to make the trip!!!)
