Welcome to our ...
It's a beautifully sunny Spring day ~ so ~
We've set the table on the back lawn area for cake and
Strawberry Italian Soda ~
I have a number of extra tables that I like to bring out for
This drop-leaf is one that I bought from an old florist shop in town
several years ago. It is chippy & distressed from years of use;
it has a lot of age on it, which I love.
In the winter I use it around, inside the house ~
when the weather begins to warm I bring it outside.
I always look forward to the colorful flowers of spring each year.
I made an Almond Bundt cake with a thick lemon-cream glaze
in the little Bee Hive cake pan. Although I have the old Martha Stewart
Bee Hive cake pan, I much prefer this one for it's more manageable size.

The beverage is simply Italian Strawberry syrup stirred
into sparkling water, and served well chilled.
I prefer this beverage to any punch ~ and you can make it as sweet (or not) as you like.
The table topper is vintage from Germany,
hand cross-stitched on linen.
The cake/pie server is silverplate, I purchased it several years ago from Neiman Marcus.
The serrated knife is French; a gift from a dear friend in France.
Faux eggs ~ with a French Salt mill,
just table decorations. :)
Vintage Imperial Glass, Candlewick design ~
(also known as Boopie.)
Vintage Desert Rose, the ever popular old pattern by Franciscan.
Thank you for coming by!
I hope your Spring is wonderful in every way.
