Tablescape Queen of Hearts Tea Table

Tablescape Thursday 100th post Celebration!

Over the years, I have volunteered to host a table at our church’s annual Ladies’ Tea.  I was thinking about the different tables I have set over the years.  I haven’t always taken photos (bad) and many of the photos I have taken haven’t been the best of images.

I don’t even have a recollection of doing this table.  My mom must have helped me because the roses are so beautiful.  The roses at each setting are writing pens and I still have a couple of them.  Fortunately, this is a digital picture and it is time stamped 2004.  Why I don’t recall this event, I can’t say.  I suppose the years just start blending.

Pick a card, any card!

My mother gave me this beautiful teapot, either for my birthday or for Mother’s Day; the holiday is not important.  She is always giving me such nice things.  Part of our inspiration for this table must have come from this teapot.  Crown Dorset, Staffordshire Fine Ceramics, Staffordshire England.    See, isn’t my mom so sweet?

  3. Your rose topiaries really make your table jump out from the others at the tea. I love that you did the table with your mom. Those are precious moments and treasured memories. Thank you for sharing your delightful table. Cherry Kay
