Garden Tea Decor



It is fun for us to carry the tea theme into the outdoors in as many ways possible. These oversized tea pot and cups are filled with the edible flower pansies for the spring. We also have a series of tea pot wind chimes hanging in our tree. Another way that we decorate with our outdoor living space with the tea theme is with our teapot tree. All the tea pots with a crack or chip or who have lost their lid find a home on our pussy willow tree. We began this project about a year ago and it is our goal to fill this tree with once loved tea pots.

What a lovely idea! Never throw away a cracked tea pot! There's always another use for it somewhere! It's lovely! I like your tea themed planters with the pretty pansy plants as well. Thanks so much for sharing! It's great to get so many new and wonderful tea ideas! I enjoy combining 'tea' with 'gardening'. I have a 'tea garden' right outside my kitchen door that I enjoy very much!

I LOVE your planters! How teatime is that? And your tea pot tree! Excellent idea for those that can't serve tea anymore and it keeps the outdoors decorated so pretty, too!
Thank you for sharing these lovely ideas and pics.
Enjoy a lovely Spring week!

Rosemary, what a wonderful idea, I love your teapot tree and the planters but I'm not sure I could hang them even if they were chipped as I love them so much:)

Thank you for dropping by for a visit today, I enjoyed your comments very much and it so nice to meet you.
