Hi, everyone, I'm Susi and I write as a guest blogger for DesignShuffle.com, a fabulous social media site that promotes interior designers and their work from around the world. My writing focuses on things I'm passionate about: interior design, decorating ideas, home furnishings, gardening, travel and art. I get to look at gorgeous things all day and write about them. I'm a very lucky girl!I am so happy to be asked to write about garden tea parties for Once Upon a Tea Time. I'm a firm believer that a good cup a tea is a cure for many ills in life. Taking a moment to enjoy a cup of tea outside is a wonderful break in a busy day. A garden tea party is one of the most charming outdoor parties there is. Here are 8 ways to have our tea outside. Enjoy!
Tea for two outside in the garden is a lovely way to start the day or spend an afternoon. Vintage textiles and accessories add charm to this garden tea party.

Using proper china tea pots and tea cups outside gives garden tea a romantic feeling. Love the charming painted table used as a buffet to hold tea and sweets.
For a special garden tea party, move a small table and dining chairs outside. This gives the feeling of a formal tea... even outside.

A corner of the garden, patio, deck or porch can be turned into the perfect place for tea with some charming pillows and a small table to hold a cup or two of hot or iced tea. This look could be taken inside as a great interior design idea.

A Japanese tea garden is a minimalist space perfect for a contemporary style garden. Ceramic garden seats or cushions make perfect Asian inspired seating.

All you need for tea outside is comfortable seating and a place to set the tea pot. Find a quiet corner or a sunny spot and put your table and chair(s) there.
Tea outside in the summer time also includes iced tea. Love this casual seating area with African textiles that give the space an exotic feelingóall beautiful global style ideas for living room designs.

Decorate your outdoor tea room with these charming herbs planted in vintage teapots, creamers and teacups. Great way to repurpose a cracked or chipped teapot or teacup.
