Biggest Morning Tea..........


During May and June teapots will be 'brewing up big' as amazing people all around Australia host 'Biggest Morning Teas', celebrating it's 20th year, to raise awareness and funds for the Cancer Council. I was lucky enough again to be a guest at Jenny's 'biggest morning tea'. Every year Jenny, a long time family friend, presents her eager regulars with a sumptuous array of cakes and savories, washed down with coffee and tea poured from silver teapots, sipped from pretty floral china cups...oh yes and did I mention the porcelain topped teaspoons, it's all in the details oui! It was perfect this year that Jenny should be celebrated as a guest of the Cancer Council at a VIP morning tea along with other long time hosts in recognition of their dedication over the years. Bravo ladies, and gentlemen too I believe! It's been a relaxing WA Day holiday, back to business :) today, happy Tuesday, take care... Oui c'est moi dans la teapot!

  1. What a nice idea! Do you folks like your tea like our British counterparts? While tea is popular here, it's not epic like elsewhere:)

  2. Enchantée, Grace (well, almost, since the reflection in the tea pot is a bit blurry...) You will laugh: At first, after reading your last comment, I looked at the photo of the tea cup with the spoons, and I tried really hard to see you in there. :-) Needless to say, I did not find you... Sheesh. French Girl in Seattle clearly needs more coffee this morning. Bonne semaine. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  4. Those spoons are darling as is everything about this! How wonderful, I can't think of a better way to help a worthy cause. Your captures have such charm, every little detail is so sweet!

  5. I can't see you!!! :-) Not really. Oh how wonderful. How can you actually stop politely stop eating, how do you hold back??? The spoons are a delight!

    I sent you a friend request on FB. I didn't know you were on there!!!

  6. That looks like fun. I'm almost tempted to buy a frock and attend so I can taste the lovely baking!
    Nice to see your reflection!

  8. What fun and what great captures for the day! Everything looks SO delicious and I love the colors! So good to be back online -- well, almost -- now I'm having computer problems which I haven't been able to get fixed, my phone died, the charger got lost in the move and I may go nuts, but we do what we have to do!!! Have a great week, Grace! Take care!

  14. A wonderful notion, and a good cause, Grace.

    Tea, of course, is meant to be consumed with an obscene amount of sugar.

  15. Whenever we become pessimistic about people, friends like your Jenny do selfless and generous things like this tea party, and once again we remember how wonderful people can be.

  16. This is all very feminine. I don't know how to react. Did someone say that real men don't drink tea?
