Pink and Aqua Tablescape

Good afternoon everyone.  Today I brought out some of my favorite pieces from past tea parties.  I just love this pink and white checked tablecloth, and I especially love it with the aqua mixed in with it.  I've been wanting to share my cherub plates with you for awhile.  I have had these for years and years.  Aren't they sweet?

 I wrapped some pretty white silk roses with their stems around the napkins.  The cup and saucer in the photo below is one of my favorites.
 Aren't these macaroons delicious looking?  I actually took one of these and had paint matched to it.  The colors are divine.
The hydrangeas came from my garden.   The pretty cake on the pedestal is not real.  I keep it in the dining room all year long on my tea cart and it's gotten a little faded over the years, but it's still adorable.  The cake pedestal is made from old lamp parts.  I purchased this one and then I copied it and made one myself.  I love how they add different heights to my tables when I'm serving tea.
Below are some of my hand painted pieces.  I like to pick up strays every now and then.   The hand painting is exquisite.
 There is no mark on the plates or I would tell you who they are manufactured by.
Happy Sunday everyone.  Thanks for joining me today.  As always, I enjoy your visits.

Yay..I get to be first!! That is so pretty and feminine. Those handpainted pieces are gorgeous. I bet they were done by someone who does china painting. I have a few pieces from a local woman and it reminds me of those. That's why no manufacturer label I bet. Very pretty, I would come to tea if I was closer!

Pretty table, Maggie! I love the cherub dishes. Those cupcakes look delicious and even that drink is making me thirsty! : ) Love the teacups and all those other pieces. They may not match but they seem to all work well together.
