Apple Dumpling Tea Party

It is time for tea!
The weather is perfect for a steamy hot cup
and a delicious dessert of apple dumplings!
I am so glad you are joining me today!
I made a quick and simple centerpiece of orange flower stems
in individual mini vases (which are actually re-purposed spice jars) -
then I gathered them together and tied an organza ribbon
around the arrangement finished with a bow!

I love this idea and it matched my table perfectly!

This beautiful teapot was given to me by my beautiful mother.

It is a one-cup wonder set!

The detail and colors are exquisite.

I love this little pot for so many reasons...
the most being that my mama blessed me with it!
She gives me the most treasured gifts of love!
I love it mama - and I love you!

a mosaic of magnificence...

Now onto the recipe....
So easy peasy - so scrumptious!
Apple Dumplings
3-4 apples, peeled & sliced
cinnamon sugar
melted butter
2 pkgs. crescent rolls
1/4 - 1/2 c apple juice

  15. Just found your blog and I am your newest follower. Love the "kitchenettes". what a wonderful idea to teach girls that homemaking and hospitality really are a service and both are Godly. Hope you will stop by my katies-kettle blog. I would love for you to stop by. I am raising 5 children (the oldest is ten) and my girls are learning all about homemaking, sewing and all these apparent "lost arts". I am amazed how many of my daughters aged friends dont even have chores let alone know anything about homemaking. So thrilled to find your blog. blessings to you! Katie

  16. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe and linking up.


Please leave a comment on my Blog of Life ~ I love hearing from you!


The Kitchenettes ~ A Hospitality Club

Romans 12:13
Pursue the practice of hospitality.

The Kitchenettes is all about teaching and mentoring young girls in the art of hospitality. It is so much more than cooking or doing domestic tasks ~ hospitality is the very heart of God ~ a demonstration of pouring His love onto others. This group of young girls are learning the very nature and character of God as they serve people and sharpen their skills in homemaking.
