I don't really think of France when I think of tea. And I don't have any hearts for this Valentine tea yet either! LOL!
But I went digging deep into the cupboards for something sweet to put on the table anyway, and when there isn't a bouquet, there is always pretty china! And Limoges gets me off to a start with the "French tea" part.
I have a lot of one-offs of things. I like a mix of china patterns on a table the way I like mixed linens on a bed.
This whole table is made up of china odds and ends, which also keeps things informal.
My stacked cups are from my collection of Rose Point by Pope Gosser. I have them paired with a few pretty saucers that I hung onto because of the darling little rose motif on each of them.
They also have a delicious creamy color.
I sold the rest of the set, but kept an orphaned butter plate too.
A lacy napkin added, and voila!, we have a festive occasion!
There is this set of four Limoges dessert/salad plates in yet another pretty pattern.
And the French galettes I discovered over the holidays tilt the theme the rest of the way.
I have since found these on Amazon for twice the price I paid for them at Costco. I expected them to be more like a sable. But they need a little something, and I serve them with a bit of cheese with fruit.
A little sweet. A little savory. A dainty little tea with a little french accent! Oui?
Happy Valentines Day my sweets!
So lovely that you stopped by!
