The Florentine Tea Room



Hello dear friends
one of my favorite meeting places with friends is

The FlorenTine Tea Rooms



It has a certain old time elegance
which I love


and a collection of pretty mis-matched china
all the rage now.
I enjoy drinking my tea from
a fine bone china cup - don't you?


A small delicious club sandwich
followed by a yummy cake
topped with yoghurt or cream
is my usual choice.


Pretty cake stands waiting to be filled
with delicacies.


Water glasses sitting on
a vintage etched mirror

 Today I'm joining these tea parties

Bernideen at Friends Sharing Tea
Sandi at Tea Time Tuesday
Elizabeth at T on Tuesday

Do pop over for some old time elegance
for all things tea!

Please remember

Thank you.





Thank you to my dear friends for your visits

my knee is still giving me issues so I'm
off to see the doc today..... 

WELCOME
to my new followers - lovely to meet you!


À bientôt 

be kind to one another

Hi Shane,

What a charming and elegant tea room! From the goodies that accompany afternoon tea to the porcelain, mismatched china, the atmosphere is pure indulgence and calm.

Hope your knee is better!

What a beautiful tea room, Shane; I would love to eat there too. Yes, I enjoy my tea in a pretty china cup most days, and have a collection of mis-matched pretty china which is greatly loved. Praying for Madelief and her family. xx

What a lovely tea room, Shane! Thank you for sharing all the beautiful things there.
I will pray for Madelief, as I know what it's like to lose a hubby to cancer.
I hope your knee gets better soon. xxoo

That tearoom looks priceless to me; roses, mis-matched china and scrumptious cakes too!

I was heartbroken on reading Madelief's terrible news. I have witness, since Jan's cancer was diagnosed a year ago, Madelief's determination to stay upbeat and cheery on her stunning blog without letting anything of her torment slip. She is an amazing lady.

Tea rooms such as you've featured are so charming - love the mismatched china and the glassware. Pretty is good for the soul.

Hello Shane,
Oh that looks like somewhere I would love to visit one day! I have a cup and saucer in that same scalloped shape. Yes, mismatched china is so popular and I hope it remains so for the sake of my business! I set up a high tea for 90 people at a historic property at a wedding on the weekend. The china looked so lovely set out 'en masse'. We also served the tea which meant we were busy but being able to see the reaction of the bride and groom and their guests was very special. I am providing china for a christening in a couple of weeks and very excited to see it featured in a styling feature in a bridal magazine which comes out this week. I will send you the link to the online version when it goes live!
