Tablescape # 22

High Tea with a French Flair
I'm so happy to be joining
Decor to Adore
High Tea Tablescapes

I'm so blessed to have been given a beautiful bouquet of flowers for Valentine's Day that are still quite lovely.  I found this wonderful flower container at a yard sale and combining the Valentine flowers with the amazing Pink Camellias from my Camellia tree I created a wonderful centerpiece for High Tea with a French Flair.

I have had this Camellia tree for over 35 years.  The color and blossoms are so fantastic.

I have a jet-black tablecloth on the table and the geometric patterned napkins are gathered up with shiny silver rings. To add a French flair to my traditional tablescape.

My vintage China 'Rhythm' and 'First Love' which is a traditional pattern of silverware and champagne glasses give High Tea a French Flair. The five piece silver tea service is a recent find at a thrift shop. It is Wilcox 'American Rose' pattern. And I have wanted a tea set for 50 years.

A silver tea set is usually on the table or tea cart when serving traditional High Tea and the tea cups are waiting to have the tea poured.

Cream anyone?

Sugar anyone?
