There is nothing like enjoying an early afternoon tea with your closest friend. 

I chose two teacups from my collection, they were my grandmothers.  They were then given to my mom and now I have the privilege of taking care of them after my mom left them to me.

The Tea Cups I Selected For Today

The Tea Cups I Selected For Today

Today, I thought my girlfriend Audrey and I would have tea along with some Italian wafers and Belgian chocolate covered raspberry filled biscuits.  I decided we would relax and have it in the living room. 

Tea, Italian Wafers and Pim’s Biscuits

This is one of my favorite rooms in our home and since John and I built an old-fashioned center hall colonial, we have the benefit of having the “formal” living room on the opposite side of the entry.  It is formal to a degree, without being stuffy and one can still relax, whether with a nice fire in the fall and winter or for tea in the summer. 

Afternoon Tea In The Living Room

I love every room in our home, but this room has a lot of my favorite accessories.  I have some cloches in here; one of my favorite cloches is on our coffee table where we are going to have tea.  I love mercury glass and that is on this table as well.

Some Of The Accessories

I hope you enjoy these pictures as we enjoy our time relaxing and gabbing with our cups of tea.
