Tea and Mother's Day Event
It features a white bone china teapot by Mantles Kingsbridge. It's matched with a Royal Worcester fine bone china tea cup and saucer the pure white Serendipity pattern.
My sister helped me with this table scape and we added a peony in a crystal vase. It is a beautiful pink and it adds a bit of height to the table.
A white cloth napkin with a crystal napkin ring.
We hosted our Mother Daughter Sister Friend event on Monday night. You will recall that I blogged the tea cup coasters I made earlier this year. We had 80 attend who enjoyed a wonderful roast beef dinner.
We decided to use teapots as center pieces for the 10 tables.
The teapots featured as follows:
a navy one from Ikea,
a Japanese with a wrapped handle,
the cute pink one,
an earthenware glazed in bright colors
a ceramic one in bright green with white flowers,
an elephant in a shiny black glaze,
a blue and white tall one,
a classic Brown Betty,
a clear glass with a fluted body and
a Bone China Royal Albert Petit Point pattern.
Here's how our tables were set up with the cute tea cup coasters. Each coaster had a pink tag which shared this message.
"A gift for You to help you encourage others.
A teacup coaster to place under
your daily cup.
Should God place someone on your mind as you relax and enjoy your cup.
Make a call, send a text or email, give a card, or plan a visit. Stay connected."
We provided coloring pages and word scrambles as activities for the young ladies who attended our event.
I brought one home and colored it as a way to unwind after a long day.
I chose bright colors with yellows and pinks and purples being featured which were our colors for our event.
I love this fine porcelain tea cup by Adeline. It features pink and yellow chrysanthemums with gold accents. The top is not round and features a wavy top edge.
The tea pot is white porcelain by PC.
I added some books in the background along with a vase of pink roses to repeat the pink in the photo.
I brewed Jade Citrus Mint green tea leaves in my white teapot. I enjoyed a wonderful cup of tea this afternoon.
