So you know how I go on about my URCs (ubiquitous rosy cups), and that I’m not so keen to use them? Well, seeing all your rosy prettiness from Tuesdays past has inspired me, so for this Tuesday I got some of my rosy prettiness out of the cupboard.
Kerstie gave me this lovely three tiered rosy cake server for Christmas last year. It is called Fashion Rose from Staffordshire. Earlier in the day we were all feeling like having something sweet and creamy and stopped by our favorite bakery for treats, so it seemed like the perfect time to have a rosy tea party with the babies.
The tea cups I chose were, left to right, Tudor Rose by Collingwoods, America Beauty by Royal Albert, and Adderley.
The little gold finch cake server was on loan from Kerstin who just bought it at a church bazaar for $5.
I’ve had these bone china children’s nursery rhyme cups for nearly 30 years and the children used them for tea when they were little. I always thought that the one is Tom, Tom the Piper’s son and the other is Five Current Buns, but I might be wrong.
Binky gets milk, she’s a little too little for tea and the pastry sugar buzz will be bad enough without adding caffeine..lol. Milk is poured from Mrs. Marmalade Cat’s milk jug.
Let the tea party begin!
Linking up with Terri of Artful Affirmations and thinking, “that’s a spectacularly pretty tea cup!”, and to Martha and feeling so happy about her good news, to Sandi at Rose Chintz Cottage , loving all that delicious cream tea wonderfulness, and to Bernideen and thinking, “wow, this girl has so much cool stuff!”
I’m so glad you stopped by. 🙂
