Vintage Tea Party China

Saturday 21 July 2012
Derby, UK
Ohh, very pretty and very vintage. 

Proper china cups. I picked up a few sets (including sugar bowls, cream jugs etc) from charity shops for a song. Oh, so happy!

Vintage shops are expensive and you pay £5 for one cup and saucer set verses a whole set of six place settings in your local charity store. Plus you can serve your tea the old fashion way and if it get broken - that's cool, it's not your favourite from your wedding bottom draw!

Add a few flowers to a pretty cup

They look cute just stacked on the side too
Lovely for tea but as flower vases, candle holders and soap dishes. The saucers are great plant stands to jazz up a plain plant pot. I even use little saucers for butter dishes, they lok quirky and always start a conversation!

How do you use yours?
