Tea on a Tray

Thank you again Susan for hosting this event that got us all started in collecting dishes!!!!! I love it. After you have a look here, visit the participants at There is always the most beautiful and inventive ideas.

How about a spot of tea?

Pretty little porcelain cups with coasters that match. The teapot I've had forever, and the tray table, remember, I got a few weeks ago at GW and painted it white.

I got this little tea set (minus the pot), at Marshalls. It also came with a long little tray in the same design. All for $10.00.

Little silver sugar tongs. I was going to sell them on eBay and now I'm glad I didn't.

Delicate little napkins. Oneida Community silverware.

Hope you all have a chance to be served tea in bed.
Have a great Thursday and thanks for the visit. Please drop me a little note.


  1. What a pretty setting ... love those sugar tongs. Sweet cups, TTFN ~Marydon

  2. Beautifully presented tea service, what a lovely cozy nook to sit back and relax. Thanks for sharing with us all.

  3. Shirely, what a precious room! I love your teapot you found, and those darling mugs. And that breakfast tray!!! Cute!

    I'm so glad you didn't sell your precious tongs! Oh, perish the thought. They are wonderful. They look perfect with your tea tray, too.

    This made me want to curl up in my bed with a good cup of tea and read!

    Much love to you on Tablescape Thursday...


    Sheila... who has a little giveaway I hope you'll enter! :-)

  4. How lovely. So glad you didn't sell those tongs on ebay. If you still want to sell them, let me know!!! - The Tablescaper

  5. Love those rose teacups on the tray. Very pretty. The bed is also very pretty!

  6. Oh what a pretty tea tray and tea set. I love it. The cups are so pretty and matching coasters is really unusual. I love the GW tray painted white. I also really love the bedding you have on the bed. It is all so pretty. Thanks also for stopping by my TT and leaving such gracious comments. I really appreciate it. Hugs, Marty

  7. Shirley, this is so sweet and inviting. I love the teapot. Just elegant....all of it!


  8. Shirley, Very lovely! Pink and green - one of my favorite combinations.

  9. What a sweet room. I looks perfectly ready for a special guest - so inviting. Great post.

  11. This is so pretty! I love the cups and the teapot! The napkins are beautiful! Who wouldn't love to be served breakfast in bed on such a pretty tray tablescape!


  12. Very nice setting. I would love to be served tea in bed...what a treat.

  13. What a pamper tray! I love the cups and coasters. I have really gotten an interest in teapots. I bought a really unique one today at the SA Thrift Store. I've got to find the link back to the tea party that Barb used to host. I know that someone picked it up but I lost the link.

    Don't forget to join us on this weekend for the final Christmas in July Tablescape Party on Saturday (some may spill into Sunday since the 25th is Saturday. I am having a real CIJ family dinner on Sunday, but will post my table photos Friday night and Mr. Linky will be up and ready at Playing Dishes.

  14. Your tea set is just lovely. I would love a cup right now.

  15. What a cute idea, and I love how everything on the bed blended so well with the sweet trayscape! I feel like I'm at a beautiful bed and breakfast! Love it!
    All the best,

  16. What a pretty tray Shirley. The tongs are so sweet I just love them in a bowl of sugar cubes. Sugar cubes are a little hard to come by around here but when I see them I stock up.
    Have a lovely day~ ~Ahrisha~ ~

  17. Now that is my idea of breakfast with a pot of tea! LOVE the gree and white quilt, such a lovely bedroom!

  18. Very pretty tray-scape! That teapot is lovely. What a pretty shade of green in your bedding. I would love to curl up there with a spot o' tea!
