Wedgewood Valentine Tea



I'd have to say this vintage Wedgewood is my favorite china. I haven't owned it all that long. I had longed for it the moment I first took notice of it on the cover of Victoria magazine. The day I found these pieces stacked up in a local shop not an instant passed before I knew they would be riding home with me.


A few plates and cups take a postage stamp sized starring role in this arrangement from last year's Valentine tea, and remind me once again what a happy pill beautiful white china can be. Add a few roses, a sweet linen tea napkin, and you have a recipe for the perfect soiree!



Oh yes. . . . And some luscious decadent pastry!
 (This one is from the bakery around the corner.)

It should be an interesting weekend ahead. Many of you are bracing yourselves for the icy blast to the east coast. I wish you all well. Stock up on the pastry!

Jacqueline,
The Winter storms may be raging on the East Coast, but a blanket of SNOW combined with a roaring fire would add the ambiance to compliment this Valentine Tea in your photography!!!
Exquisite Wedgewood China!!!
Your linens are always such eye candy for this "love of all things vintage" person!!!
Fondly,
Pat

I agree that the white china was a good deal to buy, what a pretty, and feminine pattern.
All the hearts and pink roses are my kind of Valentine tea table - no red thanks.

Such a beautiful collage, Jacqueline, and those dishes are just beautiful. They almost look as if a psatry chef decorated the edges! And what a delectable pastry. Ever the practical New Englander, I made sure there were walnut brownies on hand during the blizzard. Hahaha!
