Her Majesty Queen Victoria's Tea

Queen Victoria's Birthday Tea

Kim at The Victorian Parlor is hosting a Tea in honor of Her Majesty Queen Victoria today! Make sure you visit her blog to see what she is serving, and to see what others will be doing with their teas.

Eastlake Teapot

Queen Victoria's birthday is May 24th. Today, I am having the Queen over for morning tea. Come join us!

Eastlake Teacup and Saucer

I've set the table with my most regal tablecloth. Today, Her Majesty will be served on a variety of Aesthetic Transferware pieces, all with English registry marks, of course.

Eastlake Plate with Crumpets

We are serving warm crumpets with butter and jam. Her Majesty will be offered a selection of Tetley and Twinings teas. May I suggest English Breakfast tea?

Tea Selection

Our table centerpiece is a classical sculpture with a truly royal look. I think she looks a bit like Her Majesty herself, don't you agree?

Regal Sculpture

Finally, in honor of Queen Victoria, we will make an extra contribution to our favorite charity this year. We have a particular fondness for the Anti Cruelty Society of Chicago, a wonderful animal shelter where we have always gone to adopt our kitties. I think Her Majesty would approve!

Thank you, Kim, for hosting your tea and inviting us! Remember to rejoin your hostess at The Victorian Parlor today.

I love to wake up to bit of England! The tea set is precious and I really like the oak in the background too. Long live the Queen!

What a great post. I love your brown and white china - especially the teapot. I'm going to blog about QV on Monday and will include a link to your post if that's okay.
I'm off to check out Kim's post now!

LOL! Great shots of the antsy little squirrel in the post below! They aren't easy to catch on film!

Ah...English breakfast tea...the only thing better than that is having it for high tea in England itself. With clotted cream and strawberry jam on scones, of course!
It was the highlight every day when we traveled there. I guide couldn't understand how we packed away all those calories! Well, he had us walking all day! LOL!

Loved your post - brought back many beautiful memories.

Oh, and I have a statue very similar to yours. It has a slight crack in it but I only paid $5! We're both lucky, aren't we! They're so pretty!

Blessings and thank you for the compliments about my macro photos.

Loved your tea party! Lovely. Particularly the rose pattern flatware. Picked up one teaspoon of that pattern last year in Madison, IN -- really loved it.

Glad I found your blog through Kim.
