My Blue and White Dishes
I was commenting to Pat over at the Back Porch that I would love to have Blue and White Dishes. And about a week later I was in my favorite antique shop and found this perfect set of dishes just for me.
Four dessert plates and Four cups and Four saucers. I collect this combination for my tea parties. I have 19 sets. Some of the sets have more than one of the same design. Ladies love to pick out their favorite place setting and enjoy discussing different tea cups or dishes they collect.
While making Lemon Curd I decided to use the seasonal lemons as the centerpiece for my 24th. Tablescape.
Lemons with Tea!
I love to serve a fruit dessert as part of my tea menu.
I love this cup. When I buy tea cups I want to love how it feels in my hand. Not to heavy. And the way it looks when I hold it to the light. Also I look for the used cups to be in good condition... That's so important.
I love the presentation of the blue and white plates on a larger white plate. I have a very nice wooden table that I have covered all the time. But today I wanted the wood to show under the place setting.

The Pineapple is the symbol for "Friendship"
I believe having tea is the most wonderful way to share friendship.
I bought this tea pot at the Save Mart grocery store last year when I was visiting my mother. I wish I had bought more pieces of this wonderful Blue and White dinnerware.
~Sugar and Cream~
The sugar and creamer I found in a little antique shop.
My son gave the bowls to me as a gift many years ago. They are such a treasure. At the time he gave them to me I didn't collect any blue and white dishes. How did he know that one day I would have so many beautiful dishes.
This photograph has the water glasses included in the Tablescape.
Water glasses were taken away. Which look do you like?
Glasses or No Glasses that is the question.
