Strawberries and teapots are a few of my favorite things. I'm a new fan of Laurie's Favorite Things Saturday and I'm also linking to Sunday Favorties at Chari's Happy to Desgin, Marty's Tabletop Tuedays, Lady Katherine's Tea Time Tuesday, Rhondi's Tea Party Tuesdays, Susan's BTNOP Tablescapes Thursday and Cindy's Romantic Home Show and Tell Friday!
So many social engagements...so little time. LOL! Join in all the parties for lots of fun and great ideas.
She gave me this adorable teapot ...she knows me so well and chose this "girly" pink rose covered teapot for me. Thanks Valerie!!! I served her spiced tea, a fresh vegatable and bow -tie pasta salad topped off with fresh strawberries.
I found these pink plates on clearance and loved the soft pink color and the border. They look good layered on the off white Target dinner plates I 've had for years.
I found these strawberry plates at Pier One...hard to resist, since I had purchased an April Cornell strawberry tablecloth on my trip to Texas. I thought they would look perfect for the table!
I found these strawberry pewter bowls at Goodwill for a steal several months ago...4 for $3.00. So cute to serve fresh berries in.
For an alternate look I switched out the pink plates for the green cabbage and layered the Pier One plates on top...I like this look too!
Candles and silk flowers add to the table for two.
I just used red napkins with a simple white porcelain napkin ring...you can add flowers too for a more "girly" look.
I went to a friend's estate sale and found these beautiful teacups from Johnson Brothers..the pattern is Enchanted Garden...I love this pattern and I'm looking for more pieces if the price is right.
Finally, I added my family's favorite strawberry jam from Swanton Berry Farm in California. It's the best! We love our visits and when we run out of jam..it's time to go back to the farm!
