This is going to be my last summer tea. How did that happen? Summer flew right by. But, before it goes I am having tea; of course, and enjoying some of the last roses that have bloomed in my garden.
My tea table is graced with this lovely lace table topper from Heritage Lace. It is a 58-inch x 58-inch square of lace in the pattern Heirloom. It brings a stately quality to any tea just by casually placing it on the table.
I put it on my little mahogany tea side table and it dripped off of the table spilling lace to the floor. I love anything dripping with lace!
Here is the larger version of that tablecloth in my Mad Tea from this summer. It really makes a stunning impression on any size table.
Even though chilly weather is coming I am enjoying some Flower Therapy in my reading today. Flowers have healing abilities, did you know that? They do. This book is by Doreen Virtue and Robert Reeves. Flower therapy originated with Dr. Edward Bach he discovered that flowers can have an effect on your emotional well being. Reminds me of how we drape caskets with so many flowers. It isn't necessarily for the person who has passed on, it is for those of us left behind who has to live with out them.
It is thought that even staring at a picture of a flower has the power to lift your mood. So, I enjoy the last of the roses and dream of what flowers I might plant next year to enjoy in my garden while reading about the healing potential each flower has.
Thank you very much to Heritage Lace for sponsoring today's tea. The products described were provided to The Charm of Home for this post. The written description was entirely my own.
