Hello, Welcome to Marcia’s Cottage. I’m so happy to see you today my friend. ♡ Shall we have a little tea. ..♡
Aren’t these the sweetest teacups. …
One of my greatest pleasures on a large or small scale, is to prepare a beautiful tea party. ♡
All the thought, planning, effort, ingenuity, and creativity that goes into each party is my way of showing appreciation for friendships and love.
I devote myself to these events as a way of celebrating life. Serving wonderful food, seeing a beautiful table, thinking about what others would enjoy is a way for me to show that I hold others sacred.
I LOVE to create a palette for the table by selecting colorful accessories from a collection I have lovingly gathered over the years. A Tea Celebration is a wonderful opportunity to let the energy flow wherever it seems most natural.
I love the way the house feels when it’s dressed for company; our Cottage seems to smile. Everything shines brightly.
There are a zillion details, but that’s just part of the pleasure.
This was a retirement tea party that I hosted for my friend Lillian. I had so much fun planning the decorations for the table.
Special little “Dream” bracelets for each guest.
(you can make an easy version of this Victorian cake by preparing a regular cake mix…clotted cream…and your favorite strawberry/raspberry preserves.)
Both the food and it’s presentation are very important to me in creating an inspiring, celebratory atmosphere. I love making celebrations so much that I refuse to make them too complicated for comfort. Can I share a little secret with you. .. I ALWAYS pace myself. I believe that the most charming rooms are created with a sense of ease in the details.
I find I have infinite energy and concentration when I do something I really want to do.♡ I guess you could say it’s my passion. I’m wondering if there is something you enjoy my friend…♡ Perhaps there is a hobby that you enjoy… One that your passionate about. …
If you do, make sure to turn up it’s music….
Thank you for our special time together today. I hope you enjoyed your visit. Have a lovely day.
