Mother/Daughter & Traveling Teapot Teatime Tablesetting

Can you spot The Traveling Teapot?

She's all dressed in a new polka dot tea cozy.

A special poem from my dear daughter
Crown Essex teacup & saucer, a gift from my auntie
The table is set for a Mother/Daughter teatime

Royal Grafton fine bone china sugar bowl and creamer
Rosina "English Roses" saucer ~ we'll use for fresh fruit
My "time for tea" little raised plate made with a glass candle holder and a pretty saucer. I bought this one already done, but I understand you superglue the two pieces together. Just the right size for tea treats for two.
an adorable craft show find
View seated. Do you check this? I think it adds to the details


The flatware is Oneida Monte Carlo pattern.
Duchess bone china teacup & saucer ~ made in England~  The demitasse spoons and sugar tongs are vintage Wm Rogers silver plate
Paragon Rose Bouquet dessert plate, pink glass plate, teacup & saucer
see how pretty the pink cherry blossom glass looks with pink china
Royal Albert Lavender Rose dessert plate, pink glass plate, teacup & saucer
Miss Prissy is looking fabulous!
~her pink bow~
The details:  I sewed the table cloth from two polka-dot print fabrics and also black with pink rose tea napkins. Then, I folded  scalloped white tea napkins together with them and tied with pink ribbon. I tucked a few silk flowers at the bow and scatted pink silk flowers on the table. The cute tea cozy was a eBay find. I hope you enjoyed seeing the special table setting for our Mother/Daughter with the Traveling Teapot. (hope I haven't overwhelmed you with too many photos....)
