Hello friends, welcome to the Tea Time on a Tray Blog Tour! I always enjoy creating a vignette on a tray. It doesn’t matter if the tray has one tier or three tiers. Or if I use a little something out of the ordinary as a tray. Thankfully others like to create them too. So, it is my pleasure to invite you to take the Tea Time on a Tray Blog Tour.
You will be inspired by the creativity, and your pinning finger will get achy, but it’ll all be worth it. (smile) If you’ve arrived here from Thrifting Wonderland welcome, and thank you for continuing the tour.
A HUGE Thank you to all of the lovely bloggy friends and tray decorators for joining in the fun.
I enjoy the simple pleasures whenever I can, and my Tea Time on a Tray vignette displays the joy of writing a card just because. Not for birthday, or any other special occasion, just a card that says I’m thinking of you. Add a fine cup of tea and some fragrant carnations and ta-daa, Tea Time on a Tray!
I used chargers for my trays.
The teacups are Johann Haviland Bavaria Germany China, a gift from my mother and I hope to pass them on to our daughter some day. I always say, ” tea taste best when it’s in a pretty teacup”.
The light blue teapot was a fun find on Amazon. The pearl rope necklace is vintage and it was a thrifty find (circa1940)!

I know you will find inspiration on the tour for your tea time on a tray. You don’t need to buy anything, just use what you have. The trays can be tiered, simple or made of something to represent a tray, like my plate chargers. Enjoy your cup of tea in a beautiful way, on a tray (smile). Please continue the tour by visiting Calypso in the Country.

Beautiful tea time on a tray vignette! The first thing I thought of when I saw the blue tea pot and pearls is “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
Thank you so much Allyson. What a lovely thought, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, perfect! Hugs

Those tea cups are so beautiful and so special! I love the notecards too a cozy way to write with a cup of tea. Thanks for hosting.
Thank you, it was a pleasure to have you join in the fun. Hugs!
Oh, this is beautiful! Blue is my favorite color, so this spoke to me. And I am so sorry I have missed participating the last two times (first because I was on crutched and then I started a new job), but now that I am in a rhythm, I look forward to participating in others.
Thank you Angie! I hope you are feeling better. I look forward to having you join in the fun. Hugs!
I love your vignetter, Katherine! And, I agree, tea does taste best in a pretty teacup! Your photos are so pretty and soothing. I feel like I’m there having tea with you. xo
Thank you my friend, I wish you were here. xo

I love your blue teacups. And yes, tea does taste better in a pretty cup! Thanks so much for hosting this lovely tour!

Denise/My Home of All Seasons says
Your tray is just beautiful as always Katherine. I love that you have a box of notes and use them too! There is nothing like a handwritten “thinking of you” note from a treasured friend. A text on the phone just doesn’t cut it sometimes! Thanks so much for taking the time to put together such a fun tour once again. So appreciated! Have a wonderful week ahead!
Thank you so much Denise. I do love finding and sending pretty note cards for that very reason. I agree texting just isn’t the same. Thank you for joining in the fun. Hugs!
That is a cute teapot. I clicked over to see the cost. Very reasonable. I could use the yellow to go with my home, but the pale blue is also pretty, especially the way you added the flowers.
Thanks for pulling together another fun tray hop. It has helped me keep busy, and not be so sad.
Hi Rachelle, thank you! How kind of you to click over to the teapot. Yellow is a wonderful color. I’m so happy you found comfort in time spent creating your lovely tray. I send love and prayers your way. xo

Katherine, first off, thank you for organizing and hosting this blog hop. It’s always fun to join in one of these group hops.
Tea time is special anytime and your setting is so inviting. I love handwritten notes as well. Good idea to pour a cup of tea and write to some friends. I think I will do just that!
