One of my favorite August Victoria covers shows a vintage shoe bag mounted on a country blue vintage garden trellis. I love all the cards and flowers in the pockets!
It's impossible to relate just how many fun ideas Victoria has given me over the years. And beautiful tea settings tops the list.
Today I'm showing more of my vintage Whitechapel Rose pattern china on my table. I almost never set a dinner table with coffee/tea cups, but reserve them for a tea or dessert table instead. The small butter plates are the perfect size for savories or small sweets.
I tend to like a more subtle pattern in china, and the creamy white of this set plays as big a part as the tiny roses.
A small tea is a good place to use my odd gatherings of vintage silverplate teaspoons as well.
I'm using just the teapot from my silver tea set along with the creamer and sugar from my china pattern, instead of the silver creamer and sugar. I tend not to use the silver set much otherwise. It seems too formal for a simple offering.
A bit of vintage white linen always finds it way to the table too!
I'm wishing you a lovely vintage teatime this Tuesday!
Thanks for stopping by! Ciao! for now!
