Sharing Some Whites

Hello everyone~ Today I am sharing some whites.
From my Tea Party this past week, I have a photo of a slice of my Mother's Day cake. As you can see, it is sitting on a lace doilie.

The cake is presented on a Pierced Lace plate with a paper doily under it. It is as good as it looks too!

The tea cup is holding a strand of pearls which my Auntie P gifted me with this week. She is out West right now visiting but put these in the mail just before she left. The pearls were purchased in Scotland in 2007 while she and my uncle were over there. She didn't care for the feel of them around her neck and thought that I might make use of them for display purposes. She is so right!

They have a lovely golden sheen and a very high luster to them. Aren't they gorgeous in my tea cup?

Playing with my pearls...

They look gorgeous in this tea cup too.

I also have a photo from my tea of a lace napkin holding the silverware.

It is adorned with flowers and looks very pretty with the silver tucked inside. What do you think?

And lastly, a white rose from my Anniversary/Mother's Day bouquet looks so romantic with the pearls and lace and votive.

Well, thank you for stopping by for a visit today. Please be sure to visit these other parties to see what everyone is offering today. God bless!

  16. HI Sandi,
    How I adore your Blog. Your "lacy" plates are wonderful.I love your lacy trimed teapot I've seen you share previously. I too decorate with a lot of white and clear glass. Just so fun to change with the seasons.
