Old Country Roses

Hello Everyone,
What a joyous day. 
We are having a Cloche Party

I have been looking for just the right tea cup and saucer to use in my 'Cloche'
While visiting a church bazaar this last Saturday I found the one.  
It's just the right size to fit into my 'Cloche'
The Cloche was a gift from my brother-in-law and sister-in-law for my 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration last year.  Check my sidebar for #1 50th Anniversary. 
The tablescape was 'The Golden Cloche Party'...Please take a look at history.

I put the tea cup and saucer in the cloche on my tea cart with some Old Country Roses from my garden to carry out a romantic look for your pleasure.

The tea cup and saucer is called 'Old Country Roses'
Royal Albert, Bone China from England

The roses from my garden are: Simplicity, Don Juan, St Patrick, Dream Weaver, Ingrid Bergman and Crystalline. They look so romantic in my vintage milk glass vase.

When I put a tea cup lace runner under the glass tray on my tea cart and the china in the background the romantic feeling was completely in view.

What a joy it is for me to join:

  1. Very elegant post! Love those roses. Gorgeous settings and great ideas. Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  2. I love this gorgeous pattern, pretty obvious to family and friends since I own the entire set and many serving pieces. Thanks for featuring it today.

  3. Hi Betty...my goodness but time flies when your havin' fun bloggin' and livin' life. I've been doing lots of both without much time for visiting, so I'm just droppin' in to say Howdy, and invite you to stop by CollectInTexas Gal.

    As times change for all of us, our Blogs seem to reflect those changes in our interests, and CITexas Gal has changed a bit with the addition of Tracks of My Texas Ancestors. Yep, I've been bitten by the Genealogy Bloggin' Bug.

    I'd love to share the Blogging Genealogy Community with you. I hope you will have a minute to stop by and see/read the 'May I Introduce You To' interview Feature on CollectInTexas Gal/Tracks of My Texas Ancestors by GeneaBlogger.

  4. Oh this is so pretty. I love your beautiful teacup and to showcase it under a cloche is just so pretty. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  5. Old Country Roses is the best selling china & dinnerware pattern in history...despite only being designed in 1962. Pretty cool! Not so nice now it's made in Indonesia, but yours is English made. I love all your roses. Gorgeous! Nice to meet you!

  6. Beautiful! And so elegant. Your tea cup is one of the older Old Country Rose patterns, as I don't think they are made in England anymore. What a treasure.
