Tea Party Table decor

Tea table

It is getting wet and cold again.. What better than sipping nice hot tea and chat with friends watching the rain fall... Luckily when I was taking the pictures sun peeped from the clouds... Bright sunlight makes such a big difference to how your pictures and decor will look..!!!

Many lovely ladies had asked me last Thursday about my plates and table accessories ....So here it goes.. Most of the things I have collected during my travels.. I found this floral table runner at a local shop..I though it would be a pretty backdrop for a tea party.... The tea set is from India .. The plates are from US..(Studio Nova)...Crystal stand is a gift (also from US) ... The Bowl is a souvenir from Buckingham palace..

Villeroy & boch

The wooden tulip is from Amsterdam's Tulip Garden and this pretty piece I bought recently from a sale here in Z├╝rich is from Villeroy& Boch...

Tea time

...I placed a large doily as a table mat...I used red tissue paper to add some bright color to the table...rolled it in a napkin ring with the spoon...

Tea Time table decor

 I took the picture before I placed the sandwiches and cupcakes... This was a last minute idea... I am happy how it turned out..I wish I had some flowers ..They could have added such charm to the table..hmmm...

High tea



I did the tutorial for the Watermelon ship I had carved last time...Check out on Sunday to see how easy it is to carve a watermelon.. !!!!

What a beautiful collection of pieces. I love the glass tiered tray with the goodies on it. I have a large platter that looks like that. I wonder if it was Mikasa. Come visit my tablescape.
