Set for tea time – Friday Flowers

The beauty of flowers is that they look pretty in just about any vessel. Here I used my espresso cups as vases to hold little flowers for a small tea party gathering I hosted at home. Nothing fancy I can assure you, however my little blooms in the small cups, did steal the show.

I hope this easy idea inspire you to create something similar, using what you have at home and very few flowers indeed. The espresso cups are from a very old Cath Kidston range, probably classified as “vintage Cath Kidston” by now. The lovely pale blue plates is part of a range called Asiatic Pheasants by Burleigh, a reproduction form the original antique range with the same name. The pretty embroidered napkins in pale blue and mint and also a vintage charity shop find and the soften the look.
