Petites Fleurs

Sharing tea with friends is one of the things I love about blogging.  The kettle is on and today we are enjoying Pumpkin Spice Chai.  Oh, so delicious with savory spices of cinnamon, cloves, ginger and nutmeg!  Won't you please join me for a cup while we enjoy a few flower sprigs from the garden?

This darling distressed wooden crate with four glass bottles is from Save On Crafts.  The metal sign reading petites fleurs means 'little flowers'.  Perfect for holding these fragrant aster and geranium blooms.

I love the rustic farmhouse style of the box.

It wouldn't be October without the scent of a pumpkin candle.

This sweet teacup and saucer is by Haviland.

So elegant with its scalloped saucer of pink/blue flowers.

Are you sipping anything special this autumn season?  Thank you for stopping to visit me.  I would like to welcome my new followers.

The teacup is lovely! And the pumpkin spice chai sounds lovely. Who made it? OR did I somehow miss that. Your little flower crate is so cute! Thanks for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

Hi Donna, Your teacup is so delicate and pretty. I love Pumpkin Spice Chai from David's Tea and wondered if that is where you bought yours. Mine is all gone and I am anxiously awaiting another shipment! Your little box is pretty and so are your asters and sweet peas. Have a good week, Donna!

Donna, your photographs always look like ones right out of a magazine. These are truly so beautiful, and as always your sense of styling is impeccable.
So beautifully done!

all so the crate and bottles...but that candle holder really caught my eye!

Athena at Minervas Garden said...

What a lovely tea post, Donna, and I love your flower arrangements. I always save little pretty bottles for tiny nosegays! I am glad you liked my vintage bar cart--I had fun styling it, and I love that it can be used in so many different ways. I can see it being a helpful addition to the living room when we have a party for holding drinks or desserts, or just to decorate the shelves for fun! Take care, and have a wonderful week!
