Afternoon tea at Casa Debbio

Yesterday was a gorgeous day at Casa Debbio.

The sun was shining, it wasn’t too hot, there was a light breeze…perfect for afternoon tea on the terrace.

We don’t have a cover on the pergola yet so we used the other table under the umbrella.

The garden is full of flowers.

I prefer to leave them on the plants, but I did pick a few.

The afternoon was enjoyed by all…Angela, the cake stand is now cakeless.


  1. What a lovely afternoon. And the setting is magic… love those cake stands…

    • Angela, the cake stand, is very popular.

  2. What a stunning setting ❤️

    • The views from Casa Debbio are magnificent. The house is available for rent in summer…tell your friends.
