It’s Tablescape Tuesday! But this isn’t just any Tablescape Tuesday…this is the Tablescape Tuesday before Christmas…and all through the house…oops, sorry!
You’ll want to pop over to Between Naps on the Porch, say hello to Susan, and go visit each of the lovely bloggers she has listed, all generously sharing their tablescape-abilities!
This year, I decided to change my vignettes from the last few years. Some areas were a piece of cake, so to speak….others took me awhile, you know what I mean?! I really didn’t know what I was going to do on my breakfast table until last Thursday…then it came to me…Christmas Morning Tea!
I have so many beautiful tea cups and pretty plates that are stuck in my china cabinets much of the time, that I decided to take some of my favorites out and make an inviting setting that will remind me to take time out…even at this busy time of year, and allow me to take in the beauty of these pieces many times throughout the day!
I just love creating vignettes that make me stop and smile, don’t you?!
Some of my favorite pieces are the chintzware I have picked up over the last few years. I have the same pattern in a few different colors and assorted pieces. The green and rose tea pot is the perfect color combination for my breakfast area…and it fits in perfectly with my pink and green Christmas palette, too!
I’ve used the tea pot, sugar and creamer on a silver tray embellished with some ornaments (see the feathers girls?!) as my centerpiece, elevated on a cake stand.
I put the luncheon plate, tea cup and saucer on lacy metal chargers, added a few ornaments, including the vintage looking green “mercury glass” hearts I picked up at HomeGoods this fall.
Won’t you join me in taking some time to savor a cup of tea…you’ll feel so much better!
