MY little Princess, Ms. C.!
She's coming to visit her Nana & we're
having a tea party with cupcakes in the gazebo.
This fun little teapot came from T.J. Maxx years ago.
It reminded me of some McKenzie-Childs designs
with the whimsical roses & the black & white checks .
My baby sister & I found the black rimmed tray that it sits upon
when she was visiting us a few months ago.
She didn't think it "went" with my style of things
but I knew I had other items to pair it with
especially when I spotted those polka-dots.
You can never have too many polka-dots!
Each place setting has a different color & design on the plate
as well as a different teacup & matching saucer.
Chocolate cupcakes are her favorite &
they just HAD to have PINK icing!
EDIT to answer Carol's question:
I use the Wilton Buttercream Recipe
& tint it with their paste food coloring.
The little pink roses on this candlestick echo the
roses on the teapot as well as the fresh roses
at both ends of the table.
This little yellow boy & girl planter belonged to my mother
so its really vintage.
You can see the crazed surface easily in the photos.
The back view is just as cute, too!
I've set it right in front of Ms. C's spot
with her favorite teacup & plate.
She loves to add sprinkles to the top of her ice cream.
Last time, you should have seen the RAINBOW of colors on it
but I convinced her that just PINK would be better this time.
I’m happy to be joining:
