TableScape Tuesday

Today I'm participating in Tablescape Tuesday! This is a fun little party that Susan at Between naps on the porch does. If you need ideas for pretty tables... you need to go there.


A couple of weeks ago I hosted the savory portion of a Progressive Tea Party at my home. This is just like a progressive dinner only with Tea. One person does the savories, one does the scones and one does the sweets.

We had 12 ladies and it was a great time! It was a great way to show off our pretty things.


After having done this once.... I would recommend choosing homes that are close together. We had quite a drive in between each home. But other than that, this was a lot of fun! I would do it again in a heart beat!
