~Tea for Two~

tea for two1A

Picture me upon your knee
With tea for two
And two for tea
Just me for you
And you for me alone
Nobody near us to see us or hear us,
No friends or relations
On weekend vacations,
We won't have it known, dear,
That we own a telephone, dear...
Day will break and I'll wake,
And start to bake a sugar cake
For you to take for all the boys to see.
We'll raise a family
A boy for you
And a girl for me
Oh, can't you see how happy we would be...

Tea for Two, with Doris Day and Gordon MacRae, 1950.

Do you see a theme, to my posts, this week?  Tea for Two is another favorite Doris Day movie. I remember seeing this one at the Lyric Theatre, Lebanon, Missouri.  Even though I was only 7 years old, in 1950, this and other wonderful old movie musicals, are well remembered.

The only TV we have on the main floor, of our home, is in the master suite.  Just as we were about to have supper, Sunday evening, Please Don’t Eat the Daisies was being shown on TCM.  We didn’t want to miss the film, while we had supper, so I quickly set the round table, that sits in the bay window of our room; there we sat, enjoying Please Don’t Eat the Daisies; mentioned in the previous post.

That supper sparked an idea for setting the table for Tablescape Thursday.  Of course, it was just natural to title the post Tea for Two, which by coincidence, is another Doris Day film.

Can you imagine following through with this idea for titles?

Join our host, Susan, of Between Naps on the Porch, each Thursday, for table setting inspiration around the blogosphere.

The tea table is set with creamy bits and pieces from Lenox, Godinger and others.  The flatware is from Target.  Vintage napkins, birds, a cloche, and a crocheted cloth, picked up at Tuesday Morning, round out the table.
