Shades of Coral and Peach for Autumn's First Tea Time

Autumn... the year's last loveliest smile. ~ William Cullen Bryant

Happy Autumn dear friends and welcome to Tea Time! Autumn has arrived and with it the air is crisper and the leaves are beginning to put on a show of golds, reds, and oranges. It is not really my favourite time of year but I am going to embrace it and try to enjoy this new season.

I took this picture of a lighthouse the other evening just as the sun was setting. This is down at Victoria Park where Hubby and I take our coffee in the evening. 

I am always amazed at the colours of pink and coral that tint the sky at sunset. God is such an amazing artist! 

It was one of those perfect English autumnal days which occur more frequently in memory than in life. ~ PD James Victoria magazine

Is there any flower which exudes more romance than a rose? I love how the petals curl around one another as though each petal is giving the one next to it a hug.  

The fabric covered rose bowl was part of my mother's birthday bouquet and I decided to put it to use again. I looked for coral roses but there were none to be found so I opted for white.

The coral ribbon picks up on the china teacup. This teacup is Queen Anne made in England.

I love the coral pink colour which reminds me of the sunset. It is embellished with golden sheaves of wheat.

This cup and saucer is made by Royal Chelsea in England. It is dressed up in a pretty peach colour. 

What makes this set unique is the bouquet and swags of flowers inside the cup as well as the broken line of gold gilding around the rim of the cup and saucer.

I am using my Cream Lace teapot by Skye McGhie. I like how the light makes the pink depression glass stand appear peachy pink.

May I pour you a cuppa? My tea today is Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice. 

I made some cinnamon rolls for my hubby because he really loves them. There are plenty so please help yourself. Most of my recipes can be found on my sidebar under 'Search this Blog.'

My son, the nature lover, always called them 'snails' and still does. Whenever I make them I can't help but think of the little boy who renamed them 'snails' so many years ago.

The pretty plate adorned with pink, peach, and coral roses is Limoges made in France. Some of the petals on the roses are raised so it makes for a gorgeous plate! My Aunt Judy gave me this plate out of her collection a few years ago. 

Don't you agree that tea always tastes better in a china cup?

Thank you for coming to tea with me. 

Now, I'm going to have a nosh and peruse the newest Victoria magazine. It is a beautiful day here on the Island and I hope it is where you are too.
