outdoor tea time

There is nothing like spending the holidays on the west coast. It means warm weather, beautiful skies and if you are lucky you might get a little pool time in. I was thrilled to be in Palm Springs this Thanksgiving with the people I love the most. We did our fare share of scarfing down the goodies and to offset the overflowing stomachs, we had tea time. It was so lovely to sit on the patio for some good visits and tea. Oh what a joy it was! As a domestic woman I love to create beautiful settings to sip tea and such...here are a few I'd like to keep in my mind.
