I am joining Cielo @ The House In The Roses for her Victorian Tea Party in honor of Mother's Day. It is a 'bring your own tea cup' party and I am bringing a tea cup from a set of dishes that belonged to my grandmother:
These dishes were my grandmother's 'everyday dishes', she also had a set of china that she used for special occasions, but I always loved the simple rose pattern of these dishes. The set includes dinner plates, luncheon plates, and these cups which she used for both coffee and tea.
The set also includes a teapot:
And it includes a small cream pitcher:
And also a sugar bowl:
I've always thought this set was so pretty, I love the creamy white color, and while it looks somewhat fragile, it's really a very sturdy set.
I have an extra cup in case you didn't bring one along.
And I also have almond chocolate chip biscotti, and ginger biscotti, and apricot scones that my husband picked up at the outdoor market at Union Square Park in Manhattan. They all taste wonderful!
Won't you join me for Cielo's tea party? There are lots more pretty tea cups to see!
