Tea Blog-a-thon ~ Decor-a-Tea

This weeks theme is decorating with tea items, or tea collections etc. I’m getting ready for my posts and wanted to remind you that’s it’s not to late to join in. Head over to Gracious Hospitality for the themes each week. Then you can click on the link below my collage to see other posts for this weeks theme. Here’s my first contribution to Decor-a-Tea.

 

The tea set and dishes are Royal Albert Moss Rose. The napkins and napkin rings are Target clearance. The glasses and clear glass plates on top of the Moss Rose plates are from Goodwill. The tablecloth is a quilt I bought at T.J.Max. The runner is a piece of dotted swiss fabric with lace that I found at Goodwill, too. The salt and pepper shakers are a gift from a friend who purchased them in Victoria, B.C. I love to find things here and there to add to my different ideas for place settings. When I find bargains it’s easier to justify adding them to my collections. I’ve gotten a lot braver in throwing odd things together and most of the time it works out well. Enjoy…

I’m headed to the airport now to return to Southern California. I will add some more Decor-a-Tea posts from there. Have a wonderful week everyone.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage. I’m working on updating my blog posts very slowly.

  1. Hi Ellen. This table is beautiful! I love the Royal Albert china pattern and all the textures you used to compliment the color theme. I also love that you used a quilt as a tablecloth. Depending on the occasion, I do the same. It’s a delightful way to make a tablescape even more inviting.

    I’ve posted my first entry for the week and, like you, have more to follow. I look forward to reading your other entries!

  2. Oo-la-la! What a GORGEOUS post ~ pink roses are my very favorite! I’ll definitely be back to see your follow-up posts ~ this one has been most inticing!

    Have a lovely week!

  3. What a beautiful tablesetting! You have done a great job of blending ‘like’ patterns and colors with a variety of textures and designs. It creates a stunning setting that invites all to sit down, relax, and enjoy. Very soothing!

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous! You did a great job putting it altogether. I have one of those tea cups and saucer, didn’t know the name of it. The salt and pepper shakers are really neat too!

  5. This mosaic is a beautiful collage of some very lovely pieces for your tea. I love the napkin rings, and the design on your tea set is beautiful. What a lovely way to have tea. Karen

  6. Ellen, your tea tables are perfect for this week! And you’ll just have to post another (inspiring, beautiful, welcoming, creative) one for a later post as well. 😉

    I’ve been thinking of your quilt tablecloth since yesterday — and have so far resisted stopping at my favorite little shop that just happens to sell them!

    Enjoy a beautiful day! We have sunshine!!!

  7. Hi Ellen,
    I LOVED your Royal Albert tea pot and all the other items. I have never seen that pattern but it is so CUTE. Aren’t Roses just the best?
    I have all types of patterns and colors of tea things….but Roses are my hands down favorites I think.
    You did a GREAT display.
    Hope you have a great flight……will check in on you later.

  9. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your tea decor, and how you made your pictures into a collage! I like finding thrifty bargains, too! Love, Pam

  10. What an elegant table you set! It’s nicer than any tea room I’ve ever visited! I particularly love how everything was bought different places but work together so well. The china flower salt & pepper shakers are really sweet.
