A Tiny Tea Party

I love children's tea sets - and tiny dishes.  Let's set the table with some of them today


Small plates with colored rims, and matching teacups 


A tiny plate beneath the saucer 

Sunshine plates on top of the plain plates - farm animals circle the sunshine
And tinier sunshine plates atop the other two - this one with garden vegetables around the sunshine 

Tiny cookie cutters - instead of cookies - maybe next time I'll have a little cookie for you.  The penny gives you an idea of the size of the cookie cutters 

A house teapot and a little yellow bird pitcher 
Napkin rings are tiny, 2 inch tall flower pots that I painted last year 


And teeny tiny silverware - a christmas gift from my oldest daughter some years ago 

A penny for size comparison 
Vintage tea napkins with embroidery and scalloped edges 
A  house teapot for that tiny cup of tea 
And a little butter pat with tiny tongs - maybe we'll have some hot biscuits with butter and honey 
The little silverware came with its own tray.
I'm glad you stopped by today.

  7. What sweet, sweet place settings! My bears would like a table full of china (and especially tiny cookies). I do have one tiny set and dear husband made a table and chairs to match but only two bears can enjoy at a time.

  8. I want the biscuits and butter with honey please. How sweet those little sunshine plates are, I would love to share a tiny cup of tea and a tiny little cookie with you. I have several tiny tea sets sets that I have bought over the last couple of years for my husbands granddaughters, when they are old enough of course. That gives me about two more years that I can play with them. I did find a full size Alice in Wonderland tea set a while back, I can keep that one and still be able to have tea and cookies!! I do have to say that it is ever so much more fun when you can share the tea and cookies.
