Hi everyone...Did you have a good weekend? My weekend was really good. Okay, today, my tea is a little different. I still haven't managed to add actual tea and goodies yet...but yes, I do drink tea and eat goodies. So it's not just all for looks...:) :) :) Today, I took some of my pink colored teacups and combined them with my pink princess Depression glass plates, plus some other family items (also pink) and some extra goodies...just to have some fun. Don't you love all the pink and white? This is one of my homemaking dreams coming true. Do you recognize my little German demitasse with matching saucer in the upper left-hand corner? You might recognize some of the other pieces from previous tea posts.
There are quite a few mismatched pieces...but I was going for color here. Oh, this was fun. I'll have to "tweak" this again and see what other combinations I can come up with!!!
The candlestick holders are sterling...but they need some cleaning. Any tips? I heard that toothpaste is supposed to work...but I'm not sure. The candles should be there, but I like the "shabby" look without the candles too...and the antique silver spoons (a yardsale find)...those need some polishing, too. Oh, okay, I'm drooling over my own photo. LOVE THE PINK!!! Oh, and I humbly bow to those of you who making styling of pretty tea things look so easy!!! It's work!!!...but the result is worth it :) :) :)
The photo below is a close-up of one of the practice tea settings. Oh, I'd definitely be having a nice slice of cake or a sandwich maybe. It's clear that I forgot a fork...but I did remember the spoon for stirring tea...although, that's "gigantic" too :) :) :) Oh well, this tea setting has me laughing right now..there's so many forgotten details. Yet, I had fun sharing some of this with you.
My first tea setting and I realize the spoon is a little too BIG for stirring tea :) :) :) That's funny...I'm so laughing at myself right now...really truly :) :) :)
When you host a tea OR you are invited to tea...what are your favorite things to eat? What's your favorite kind of tea or coffee? Those are my tea items for today!!!! Thanks for stopping by to visit!!!
That's the news from Oregon today. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
