SOME OF MY FAVORITE THINGS

A few of my favorite things to do on Mother's Day is to decorate with flowers.
 Another favorite thing is candles and candle holders. The pink striped candles and golden candle holder add glamor to the table.
 A third favorite is love, love for my son and husband.
 The next favorite thing is jewelry and the theme of "More is More" is so true.
 Of course teddy bears are the gifts I receive from my son.
 Having Tea Time and collecting Tea Pots brings joy to me.
 One of my fun things is in setting tablescapes for us to enjoy with the china I collect.
 Lenox's Kate Spade pattern is called Nag's Head which comes in black and white to enhance the place setting.
 Grace's Tea Ware in the lovely rose pattern have accents of gold and black.
 Our current home has space to store all of my napkin rings, silver, napkins, and placemats for my table settings. 
Hope each one of you have a great Mother's Day and Spring weather to enjoy.

SPRING BRING ROSES FOR MOTHER'S DAY

It's almost Mother's Day and we are in the pink!
 Everything is feminine for the mother of the day. 
 Let's talk teapots that came in the mail. Four cup teapot is the perfect size with creamer and sugar bowl.
 Tiny heart backed metal chairs in pink and white sitting pretty with a little bird and pink perfume bottle. 
 Charming shades of pink roses and gold brushed rims grace each Mother's Day teapot. 
 Different hues are pink from table runner to candles to candle holders and votive jars gives the table a very girly touch.
 At each plate setting a green table mat gives a touch of leaves and grass for each rose.
 Each mother will be jeweled with a large pink sparkling diamond.
 Lovely  roses adorn each "American Beauty"dinner plate by Royal Albert.
 This special of eight five-piece setting was discovered at an antique show in Ft. Worth, Texas.
 Pull up a chair and we will serve you a cup of hot tea or a glass of sparkling cherry juice.
A small dip of strawberry sorbet will adore each shell shaped bowl for a delightful end to a Mother's Day tea.

HURRAY FOR EASTER

Time for an Easter feast!
 The center piece is based on two teapots
for a special tea time.
The brown bunny is peeking at you.
 The plan is to use both creamers.
The sugar bowls will have white and
brown sugar for a  sweetness test.
 Each china cake stand has a precious bunny and blossoms.
 Of course the teapot matches the stand.
 The lovely china is by 222 Fifth named "Leanna".
 The appetizer plate has blue polka dots and flowers plus the bunny.
For a contrast the salad plate has yellow polka dots and flowers plus a bunny!
 The diner plate grounds the stack of plates with another blue polka dot rim.

Pretty Easter egg linens add pastel colors plus the great blue flatware.
 The unique nest of colored eggs and gold beads create a special napkin ring.
 We will be ready for tea time with bunny cups and saucers plus a blue glass water goblet.
Happy Easter on April Fools Day!!!!

HOP TO EASTER TIME

Let's go to the Easter Party!
Let's have fun!
There will be more bunnies and Easter eggs than you can count.
 We will be served tea in the Easter Bunny teapot, with cream and sugar.
One tea will be "Constant Comment," which is a favorite of the hostess.
 The other Bunny teapot will serve us
"Stash Raspberry and White Decaf" tea with a pretty hue. 
 The centerpiece of the table is a pink basket with a large Easter egg decorated with a brown bunny and daffodils (buttercups?).  
 Our place setting has a fancy Easter theme. 
 The brown bunny in this darling china pattern is surrounded by pastel flowers. 222 Fifth created the "Syndey" pattern for an Easter party. 
 A very fabulous beaded egg round placemat is enhanced by the striped mat.
 A delicate bloomed goblet will serve chilled water and the pink bunny embossed tumbler will serve white grape juice.
 Of course with the choices of two teas, we will enjoy the warmth of the hot tea on a Spring day in these bunny cup and saucer.
 As an appetizer of carrot soup is planned for the bunny bowl. The pretty pink and white checked napkin is encircled by the egg and flowered napkin ring. 
Let's party with the pleasures of tea and treats and toast to more beautiful Spring weather!!

St. Paddy's Day Party

Oh, It's St. Paddy's Day, a time to celebrate with Shamrocks!! 

The loveliest of all Irish china is the Belleek pattern of  "Shamrocks". Even two graceful candleholders in the traditional pattern have the Irish green candles to light for tea time!!!
On this fine day we will serve Irish Breakfast Tea in the sweet small Belleek teapot.
Our little boy mouse will be wearing his best green suit and accompanying shamrock pin.

The wonderful Irish raisin soda bread with its great cakey texture will be served with our tea.
Our little girl mouse will wear her green dress and carry a sweet purse.

The Irish Tea Time will be served on the Belleek snack plates with its slot for the teacup.
