On this beautiful warm, sunny Prince Edward Island day, I am sharing a simple tablescape for teatime with you. I have a three-piece setting of a very old blue tea set. It has no markings on it to tell me anything about what kind of china/porcelain it is or where it was made. If any of you recognize the pattern/manufacturer, please do let me know. It is very delicate and a cherished set to own.
I love both the daintily-designed teacups and their shape. I imagine some Victorian ladies enjoying their afternoon tea with this tea set.
My choice of teapot for today’s tea setting is one that has tiny flowers of several different colors. It is my go-to teapot for tea settings when I don’t have a teapot in the specific color of the dishes I am using. It is a versatile teapot because it is of no particular predominant color.
We have a wonderful blue hydrangea bush that blooms prolifically at the back door of the cottage so I thought two or three of the magnificent blue blooms would make a lovely centerpiece that would compliment the tea set.
The hydrangea are actually in a small square vase even though they look like they are just lying on the table!
I felt the tea set was elegant enough on its own that it really needed no further adornment on the table other than the blue hydrangea centerpiece.
I am belatedly joining Sandi’s Teatime Tuesday event at Rose Chintz Cottage this week.
