Taking Time for Tea

At Bella Dona Vineyard ~ We bring calm to a busy life


How luscious are the colors
That blend upon the hills
Magnificent the depth of tones
That every tree top fills

Although we say goodbye to 
All that summer brings
Fall is that gorgeous time of year
That colors everything

From the golden fields of harvest
To the orange pumpkins in the patch
The vineyard rowed in splendor 
The green of Summer cannot match

For even though God touches
Each season of the yer
He magnifies His glory
As winter soon draws near

Let us take the time to marvel
At the colors that are Fall
It's our time to contemplate
The greatest season of them all

When the weather begins to turn and the leaves begin to change, it is a wonderful time to gather together and enjoy the beauty of the season of Fall.  Plan a beautiful ride in the country hills to a special Fall tea with us and enjoy the last precious blast of color.

Drink in the beauty of Fall in the hills and valley's surrounding our land ~ From the drive here to the surrounding wooded hills full of color that envelope the edge of our property ~ It is spectacular!  Our gardens are always full of color and we would love to share them!

As Fall brings to us such richness of color and texture, we also wish to express that in our menu.  With it's wonderful choices for the palate and beauty for the eyes, we will tantalize you with new delectables  for you to enjoy. 

Because of the heartiness of the menu in the Fall, you may think about a couple's tea ~  This also gives those who have come before a reason to come again to Taking Time for Tea and be inundated with a whole new experience!

You have an option to be served soup with a savory scone in the first course.

                                                            Just let us know when you reserve your date.

Fall's Gold

With all of the luxury of gold   ~  among the fall foliage in the table runner ~  you will enjoy a tea fit for a queen.  The Amber goblets along with the gold tea cups add to the luxuriousness of this tea service.  A yellow vintage table cloth and napkins pair beautifully with the amber nuances in the glassware and dishes.  ENJOY!

                                                   Fall's Yellow Gold 

A secondary option for a fine china fall tea is our Fall's yellow gold.  We start with our Noritake Goldlane fine china and pair that with our cut crystal plate frosted in the center and finish with Flintridge yellow china edged in a thick gold edge.  The china cup and soup bowl are Noritake Naomi.

Accent pieces are exquisitely fine vintage for your pleasure.

                                                   Fall's Foliage 

If you are torn between the Fall Foliage Tea and one of the Fine Fall tea settings, this one is for you!

We start with the finest Portugal ceramic cabbage leaf plate, add a fall leaf plate and finish with our Noritake Gold Lane fine china.

Center stage is our Italian ceramic Grape relief tea pot.  The other accent dishes are both lead crystal and fine ceramic.  This is truly the best of both for the season of Fall.

                                                    Fall Amethyst       

Gorgeous Amethyst colored glass  plates and water goblets

pair beautifully with our fall cabbage leaf plates. 

 The amethyst glass and the Italian ceramic  come together exquisitely for Fall.  Our grape motif teapot always is a show stopper.  Enjoy the nuances of each piece used to serve this Fall Amethyst Tea! 

 If you love purple like I do, you will love this!
