The tea set came home with me from our recent Michigan trip. It was in an upscale consignment shop and I was drawn to the black and white. I aslo couldn't help but think that I should be inviting bj @ sweet nothings for tea...I can't see black and white dishes without thinking of her.
I love bright green as an accent color for black and white. I started this table with a black runner and napkins, round green placemats and charcoal flatware.
Keeping things simple, we have a black dinner plate from Walmart as a charger under the dessert plates that match the tea set. I didn't look at the brand of dishes until I got them back to the hotel room (I must have really liked this set) and I was surprised to find that they are Marie by Giftcraft. I didn't know that Marie Osmond had a line of dishes. I paid $50 for the entire set and I found out that I did get a good deal!
I love the assorted tea bag holders.
The teapot can be used alone as I am doing today, or it came with a very large handled cup that it can sit on for a single serve tea set. It was the butterfly perched on the top of the teapot and the sugar bowl that caught my eye.
The milk glass vase was my mother-in-law's.
I found the white china berry basket at Kohls.
I will share the cookie recipe tomorrow, it is odd.
I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
