Please go to to see the video from the tea party. It was so amazing!!
I scanned some pictures to show you some sights from the tea party. It was so beautiful! The girls thought they were coming to a slumber party and we surprised them with a tea party! I have been collecting tea party items for years and it was such a pleasure and a joy to put on a tea party for this many people! I loved every minute of it!There were 16 girls and 6 adults. I did all of the decorating myself, as to not lose creative control, and did 95% of the food. I was exhausted for 2 days afterward, but it was worth everything! I cannot imagine having a party this big again without help!
Here are a few of my teapots. I was trying to inventory everything before the tea party.

I love this picture of the sun setting behind this cloud and the American Flag waving in the wind! It's beautiful!

This was the table I set for the Valentine holiday at my house! It was so pretty, don't you agree? I really want the clear glass chargers with the bubbles around the outside for this setting. I think that would be prettier!

This is a picture of a Valentine's Day table I decorated for the youth of my church. The sign says: "One Shoe can change your life"Cinderella. A very profound statement! The kids enjoyed their dance and the food was a success!!

Here is a past Autumn table setting. I had the tea urn out to prepare for a tea party I gave at my church. Polishing all that silver was rough, but it was so worth it! Sad to announce my crystal pitcher on this table did not survive the party. It got broken accidentally :( It was my fault, but I am sure I will find another one to replace it.

These were my grandmother's dishes. I remember eating many wonderful meals from them!

These are Homer Laughlin dishes. I bought them separately but they make a pretty table scape!

This was the Coca Cola tablescape.

A love note from God!!

This is some of my Carnival glass collection. I decorate with them during the fall months.
They are sitting on a granite piece that is sitting on an old iron antique sewing machine base that belonged to my great grandmother!

Cobalt Blue

When I was a young girl, many over the counter medications were in glass bottles, they went to plastic bottles years later. Some of these bottles were purchased at antique auctions, some were my grandma's! I love my cobalt blue collection!

Antique Baby pictures and Kewpie dolls

Here is another collection of mine! I have about 25 antique pictures of children. They are so sweet, but not as sweet as my own!! My grandma started me a Kewpie doll collection as a little girl and I continued the collection as an adult.

Blue Tablescape


I'm Lilly! I consider myself to be light green minded. I want to save the earth but have limited to recycle. I do watch EmerilGreen on green tv. and I use a real coffee mug instead of styrofoam!

I am a Christian. I am heavily involved in church activities and love to volunteer! I am an amature decorator and love to tablescape. My grandmother left me this dining room in her will, so I honor her by keeping it beautiful.

A few of my beautiful things!

I rescued this fireplace mantle from a house that was going to be demolished. I paid $75.00 for it! Some of my collectables are sitting there looking pretty! I love antiques!
