Set Your Table With Flair--Tea and Tea Tin Florals
Hello, friends! Thank you for stopping by! As we transition into beautiful warm weather, it makes me think of lazy childhood Sunday afternoons post-church, reading and taking naps in the warm beams of a windowsill....ah, the ease of youth! I need to make a mental note to do those types of things more often.
Since I am in such a whimsical state of mind today, I'd thought I would discuss one of my loves, the tea tin. I love them, whether new or vintage! There is something so charming and sweet about finding a tin rich with history, and passed down from collector to collector. Obviously, there is market for the love of tea tins; companies such as HomeGoods carry charming vintage-looking reproductions.
Whether or not you have a collection, one sweet way to utilize a tea tin is to arrange florals inside. If you are looking to make an arrangement that is simple yet elegant, florals in a tea tin is a lovely way to go.
Next, pretty crocheted doilies.
My sweet tins came next,
followed by soft roses. Love this muted peach color, and they smell amazing! Because I want a vintage feel here, I purchased these a couple days ago, and they are wilting.....pretty!
Finally, my teacup and saucer.
Such a cheerful cup! I love this stout little fellow!!
From my collection:
Cup and saucer, Royal Albert flower of the month collection Morning Glory pattern
All linen, local vintage shop
Rose tea tin, Ikea
Green tin, Bentley Green Tea, one of my favorites❤
