Tea in Bed

Welcome to the 45th Tablescape Thursday!

It’s Tablescape Thursday and I positively love this day! Thursdays are filled to overflowing with links to some of the most delicious eye candy to be found anywhere across the Blogasphere!

Today, you are my guest. And, I’m so glad you are here! How was your journey? I know you must be tired after such a long drive.

Blue White Guest Room


I have your room all ready. You just snuggle right down here into this soft, comfy bed and relax.

I thought you might be a bit thirsty after your long trip.

…how does a nice cup of hot tea sound?


…with a tasty cinnamon, mulling-spice spoon, for a little added flavor.


Dinner will be ready in a bit, but you’ll find some little bug bites just waiting for you underneath this silver dome.


Now, I’ll just tip-toe out and let you relax and rest up a bit.

HOSPITALITY, n. The virtue which induces us to feed and lodge certain persons who are not in need of food and lodging. Author: Ambrose Bierce.

For ’tis always fair weather…when good fellows get together; With a stein on the table and a good song ringing clear. Author: Richard Hovey

It is a sin against hospitality, to open your doors and darken your countenance. Proverb Quotes


When hospitality becomes an art, it loses its very soul. Author: Max Beerbohm


What is there more kindly than the feeling between host and guest? Author: Aeschylus


Hospitality sitting with gladness. Author: Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Let me live in my house by the side of the road, Where the race of men go by; They are good, they are bad; they are weak, they are strong, Wise, foolish,–so am I; Then why should I sit in the scorner’s seat, Or hurl the cynic’s ban? Let me live in my house by the side of the road, And be a friend to man. Author: Sam Walter Foss


The mind is not a hermit’s cell, but a place of hospitality and intercourse. Author: Charles Horton Cooley


When friends are at your hearthside met, Sweet courtesy has done its most If you have made each guest forget That he himself is not the host. Author: Thomas Bailey Aldrich


Be it not in thy care. Go, I charge thee, invite them all; let in the tide Of knaves once more; my cook and I’ll provide. Author: William Shakespeare

  1. What a lovely guest room and the tea tray is fabulous. I love the Blue Willow. The napkin ring really caught my eye! The sugar tongs are so pretty. You did it again Susan…it's all gorgeous!

  2. Christi @ A Southern Life says

    Susan, you truly epitomize a gracious hostess. What a beautiful welcome for your guests. And, of course, I have voted for you for best eye candy! You definitely deserve it.


  3. Barb~Bella Vista says

    Susan, I feel so pampered!! Everything is so lovely….so graceful. You are just the very best.

    Thank you so much for all your hard work in hosting this wonderful event!!


  4. Oh, Susan! I'm almost in tears! How lovely and how special you've made me feel! I would love to be a real guest in your gorgeous home! This bedroom is just beautiful and the tea tray – wonderful! Thank you, Dear One!
    Be a sweetie,

  5. Jadehollow says

    What a wonderful guest room.. love the blues and yellows. Those butterfly napkins.. oh my my MIL would LOVE those. In fact she'd probably sneek em in her suitcase before leaving hehe.Beautiful as always. Have a Great 4th Holiday.. headed over to do my eye candy vote.

  6. Homemaker Barbi says

    I am so excited to try the mulling spice spoons! I don't know that I've ever seen them in my town, and am afraid I'll have to begin searching online for a store that will ship them here to us in Alaska. What a gorgeous spread this week!

    Danelle Ice / Homemaker Barbi

  7. Oh my gosh, Susan! Where did you find the little dome? I'm hoping not in an antique shop. I seriously love bees and dragonflies. Your guest room looks so warm and inviting. Very nice job with the tablescape tray! Or would that be trayblescape? πŸ™‚

  8. What a lovely room. I would be thrilled to have such a beautiful place to relax. You've forgot nothing – it looks just beautiful.

    I have never seen the mulled cider stirrers and we don't have a Marshalls around here. I'd love to find something similar though.

    Thank you for always putting together such a beautiful presentation.

    Congrats on your nomination – you deserve it. I'm going to take a short nap on that bed, but then I'm going to go vote for you.

  9. Frugal Fine Living says

    I truly enjoyed my stay! The spiced cider and and bugbites were delicious … I ate three :)! The room was so beautiful and comfy! I had to leave though, to go and vote. 164 and counting!


  10. Bill @ Affordable Accoutrements says

    Dear Susan,
    This is SO beautiful. Your eye for design is matched by your talent for framing an effective, evocative photograph. Your tablescapes really tell a story.

    Thank you for being so generous with your time and for sharing your helpful advice as I've ventured into Blogland during the past week.

    Cheers and best wishes for a wonderful Fourth!


  11. Pat@Back Porch Musings says

    I love this, Susan! Absolutely beautiful!

  12. Susan, I just loved this post of yours. Such a delight to take a breather in your guest room. So lovely and inviting.

    One day soon I will participate again in Tablescape Thursday. Been thinking something up.

    Have a fantastic 4th of July.

  13. Nothing wrong with a little shameless plug Susan. Best of luck in the vote. If this site doesn't say "eye candy" I don't know what does.

  14. The bed tray is filled to the brim with everything anyone could ever want for a nice rest and small refreshment. I love the tea set, so beautiful. Your quotes are so fitting. Everything is beautifully done. Hugs, Marty

  15. Hi Susan…you know this is my favorite room in your house…It's just perfect and anytime you want an overnight guest just call me….Oh, I was out and about today and Pier One up on Barrett Pky. near the Barnes and Noble is closing and they are having a sale 25%-50% off the whole store….

  16. I would love to relax in this room! And I think the Butterfly napkin is adorable…it reminds me of things my grandmother crocheted years ago.
    Thank you for sharing!

  17. blushing rose says

  25. Thank you Susan you are such a special hostess. You think of everything. I really enjoyed my stay but I must go now to Marshalls (where ever that is) I'm from Canada you know and they don't sell mulling spooons, but I sure can imagine how they taste.

    Oh! Susan! I so happy to be your guest! You are such a wonderful hostess! You have laid out a wonderful tea with my favorite Blue Willow! I should use them, had them for years and never used them! I adore the cider stir sticks!! The tea must be really good, for I love hot cider! I love the tray white wicker, Mine is wood.

I would love a cup of tea and a little "bug bite", thank you.

  57. Where do I sign up to make a reservation? (OMG! This is fabulous!)

  58. Melissa Miller says

    Susan I tried to vote again just now and the site won't let me. Hmmm…

  70. Anonymous says

    A lovely tablescape — of course, you know how I love blue and white. I covet the silver bee server — was very disappointed to find it out was a "find" rather than bought somewhere — it needs to join the other bee skeps at Linderhof!

    Silver napkin rings are a passion and yours is perfect — love the monogram and the blue and white butterfly napkin is perfect

    A lovely lovely table!

    Lines from Linderhof

  71. "Blossom" says

    All about hospitality πŸ˜‰

  84. Susan, you do truly have the loveliest things. And know just how to place them and photograph them as well! You are eye candy (I voted!) and I just love your home and porch. Were you ever a professional decorator? Perhaps in another life??? I'm mad for the napkins (blue and white floats my boat!) and the little bee! All so completely lovely. Looks like pages from a magazine…

  85. ~ ~ Ahrisha ~ ~ says

    Susan~ ~ ~This is the most inviting room I have seen, ever! Your guests must feel so welcome and loved. Can I stop over and stay in that room? We can go shopping! You have inspired me to do something with my guest room. It's a catch all right now.

    Lovely lovely and oh so cozy, you did a wonderful job.
    You could charge B&B rates for this room for sure!
    Didn't get to do a tablescape last week but will be back soon.

    I am having so much fun with your blog/site. I feel like I've started a new novel that has captured my interest from page one! Thanks for the great read! Cherry Kay

  123. If only! *sigh* Hey, I just thought of something! You could have a one bedroom B & B. Each of us could visit you from time to time and get to meet you face to face; have tea, set table-scapes, garden and decorate something. Haha! I think I’m on to something here, Susan. Your one bedroom B & B would probably do better business than all the others, combined.
