Welcome......

........ to my Autumn Rose Tea!

I'm so glad you have joined me today!
Please come in and have a seat............







I have set our table for two with a lace cloth, pink damask napkins, and autumn flowers and pumpkins in soft pretty colors.

Today, I am serving peppermint tea..............
*Tea Room Chicken Salad* sandwiches, grapes,
and miniature cupcakes with cream cheese filling and chocolate frosting.
I do hope you can stay and visit awhile.....


We have a lovely softened view of the woods from this lace-covered window.....


After our visit together, be sure to visit all the lovely bloggers that are serving tea today.


Thank you so much for stopping by my
Autumn Rose Tea.........

I would love it if you'd leave me a comment to let me know you enjoyed your time at my cottage today.

Oh, and please do visit me again; I so enjoyed it!

Oh Becca, my sweet friend. How lovely. Of course, I knew it would be. We both just adore the same pretties. I always run over to Flickr to see what you have that is new. Where did you get your pink pumpkins? I think I'm just going to have to make some up for myself. I'm so jealous. Have a great day, everything looks wonderful.
