Set The Tea Table ~ Bavarian Dishes

Some of you know already that I’m living in a small condo in Southern California right now and my regular home with my kids and my stuff is in the Seattle Area of Washington. Most of my tea goodies and entertaining goodies are in Washington. I didn’t have any tea-cups and saucers in California until today! Look at the bargain I found at a thrift store in our little downtown today.

 

6 cups and saucers, 6 dessert plates, 5 salad plates, and a creamer. It’s Bavarian H & Co. china. Now here’s the real exciting thing, I got all of this for $15.00!! Now I’m going to be able to have a fun tea here in California with the goodies I found today and with what I can add from the condo stash. Here’s my mock tea table without food.

 

 

 

The inside of the tea-cups are iridescent.

 

“Take some more tea,” the March Hare said to Alice, very earnestly. “I’ve had nothing yet,” Alice replied in an offended tone: “so I can’t take more.” “You mean you can’t take less,” said the Hatter: “it’s very easy to take more than nothing.” ~ Lewis Carroll ~ Alice In Wonderland

Oh and the store threw this Bavarian bowl in for nothing!

You can click over to LaTeaDah’s to see more Tables Set for Tea.

Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage and they have blacked them all out. I’m slowly working at restoring my posts without their help. Such a tiresome bother!

  1. Hi Ellen,

    Good morning!!! What a beautiful tea table you have set… I haven’t joined in LaTeaDah’s Tablesetting yet because I haven’t had time to bake anything to use props for my dishes… I was wanting to make some scones 😦 Maybe today….

    What a great find!!! I love that bowl – so pretty! I love ALL your linens too. I am scarce on linens, and am just now slowly starting a collection…

    Oh boy, I can’t wait to see more of your goodies! You are right, your house in Seattle is like a goodies warehouse, hahaha.

    Also, have you ever done a post on your Russian heritage? I would love to read it some time…

  2. What a terrific find! They are truly beautiful and I am so glad that you will be able to enjoy a lovely tea right where you are.

  3. So elegant and lovely.
    A tea party is always a very welcome diversion and fun – also a good oportunity to show off pretty china.
    All best wishes

  4. Your new tea things are simply gorgeous, and the price is certainly right! I like the way the napkins match the pattern on the china too.

  5. Oh how lovely! What a wonderful find and just in time to set the table for tea! Aren’t you a lucky gal? Thank you for taking the time to set the table so pretty for our tea today!

    Have a blessed weekend!

  6. Do you have access to or know how to find Bavarian china, pattern “Salzburg”? It is available in German restaurant supply houses, but I don’t know how to access them. Any help you might give will be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Lynn, I’m sorry but I do not know where you can find the “Salzburg” pattern…
