So here is my latest idea, all made up. It a portable tea party. It includes a nice demi tea set, which was minus the tea pot and I thought it would be fun to mix it up. I added a polkadot tea pot, and some bread and butter plates in a similar blue to hold all the tea table munchies.
I painted this lovely long berry basket a soft white to better match the tea things, and found this sweet tea party picture on Graphics Fairy to embellish it. I then tucked an antique small table cloth around the edges of the basket for nesting the tea things. Its just the right size to spread on a child's miniature table. (The table cloth was made for a card table.)
At the Crafts and Antique show I did last weekend, I tucked in some orange flavored herbal tea bags to make it complete. It got a lot of interest, but is still looking for a home. I think that I might even find a pretty tin of fancy cookies to add for its next time out, and maybe a sweet little gift book about tea parties. Voila', an instant tea party, just add little girls in party dresses and take pictures for your blog, scrapbook or album!
