June Tea: A Picnic Tea


On our way to a picnic tea

I was on vacation last week, and I stayed home. I relaxed, did a few projects, cleaned and enjoyed a visit from family. On Saturday, after all the excitement, I took a few moments to have a picnic tea with the DH at our lot. This was an impromptu event. The DH spent ~20 min pulling things together while I was in the shower. Relaxed and easy was the theme. We had cucumber sandwiches, fresh fruit, a thawed piece of the raisin tea ring from earlier in the week, and a thermos of tea.

I've been blogging each month this year about a different tea party theme. Part of my intention here is to show the broad range in tea party styles - from fancy to simple. It can hardly get more simple than this one!
