EASTER BLESSINGS AND LOTS OF TEA CUPS!


Hello Ladies:  Hope you had a wonderful week.  Welcome to Tea Cup Tuesday No. 213!  As promised, I am sharing pictures of the tea party this weekend.  Everyone had a wonderful time and I feel very relieved to have finished this big project.  I also finish one of the Frozen, "Eliza" dresses.  Sophia's dress is done.  Maya's is almost done.  I am so glad it fit.  I did not have a pattern for these dress and I am not very good at working without one.  To be honest, if it wasn't that my Grandchildren asked me, I would have said "No".   You can find these dresses on Etsy for about $200, they are worth every penny!




As mentioned, the tea for for 48 ladies.  Each table was a different color tea cup with a total of 6 tables.  We served 5 sandwiches and 5 different pastries.  Everything was home made including the delicious sconces. I did not take pictures of the table with the food on them.  I was so busy that when I thought about the pictures, I just took them before I forgot.   It as a beautiful day and the weather was perfect.  



At the tea, we had a mock wedding and lots of games.  The ladies could not stop laughing.  It was great.  Next on my agenda, a craft class for about 40 ladies.  Will be easy compared to all that china.   Finishing Maya's dress is my top priority.   Here is Sophia in her dress.  


As we enter into Holy Week, my prayer is that we all can get closer to Jesus and feel His Resurrection Power for our individual lives. Hope you have a wonderful Easter.  I want to thank you for all your prayers for my son in law.  He is improving daily.  Can't wait to visit this week, you are sharing some amazing tea cups lately.  My dear friend Terri, will be posting a little late.  We all know she is worth the wait!  

Blessings,  Martha

Wow, Martha! You've been busy. Love Sophia's dress. Your tea tables were lovely. Love the glass plates and the pretty teacups. I'm sure everyone had a great time. So nice to hear people laugh. Happy Tea Day! Happy Easter. Thanks for hosting!

Susan said...

My dear Martha....You are totally amazing.

I cannot believe you had a tea party for that many people. Unbelievable and everything looked great. Was it for a bridal shower?

Somehow I missed news of your son-in-law being ill. I hope with all my heart all is better now.

A most blessed Easter to you, dear Martha, and to all your sweet family.

The dress for Sophia is darling. You are so talented to be able to sew, too. Susan

Hi Martha,
Your tea party tables look absolutely gorgeous! I just love seeing a variety of patterns mixed together. So pretty! I am looking for green depression glass now. Yours looks amazing and it blends so beautifully with pink. Thank you for visiting me this week. Sorry I am very late linking up but it has been busy. Your wee grand daughter looks so happy in her fabulous dress! It must have been work all the work when you saw her smiling face! Happy Easter dear Friend! Karen
