Tablescape # 45 ~Pink Surprise and Guess What~

Hello, Hello Everyone.
The weather is beautiful in Northern California. Yesterday,I unveiled my tenders from their sleeping place and moved the Jewel plants to the their spot for the summer. You can see them in the background of this post.

Guest What! I don't know what this is.  My dear friend gave it to me last week as a gift.  She thought I would use it on a Tea Table. 
Great idea.

 It closes for easy storage and it's such a unique piece for my decor.

This is a side view. 
It opens to three separate plates.

This Tablescape or Center Piece would be wonderful for a Tea Party Table. I could change the Flowers with the seasons or holiday. A tablescape is a work of art, and a small-scale landscape, expresses the event and it is a welcoming gesture.

I'm always happy with 
'Pink Willow'dinnerware on my table, and a vintage doily. 

Please help me with my dilemma. I would love to know what the proper name for this interesting table accessory.

  1. Hi Betty! You've set up a lovely vignette and I could always help you with those cookies! :)
    I have one of those little stands - just like yours. I've used it when I've had ladies over for lunch and placed paper doilies on it and placed finger foods on it. It is pretty just closed.
    Hope your week is going well.
    Be a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  2. Absolutely a cutie. I never seen one b4. Unfortunately can't help but I am enjoying your post. Very sweet and romantic.

    Love your touch of pink.

    Happy TS,

  3. Hi Betty! Your little stand is so cute! Those are my favorite cookies! I'm coming over, LOL! Blessings, Tammy

  4. I just loved!
    This is a "folding cake stand metal". I want one too!!! hehehe

    Congratulations for your tablescape, I invite you to visit my blog



  5. I have the very same stand, so I like the various ways you have used it. I usually serve cookies or scones on mine, with a paper doily under them.

  6. I saw those stands in the cutest shop in Blowing Rock, NC and got one, too.... so cute for teas! Love your compositions with the pink! and now, pass the cookies, please!!!

  7. I LOVE your little goodie tray! I have one just like it in GOLD. I bought it the moment I fist saw it because it was "Love at first sight"! AND it's become very useful...Your whole setting is JUST BEAUTIFUL!
    Have a wonderful weeks end,

  8. What a wonderful gift! I've never seen anything like it. The pink is gorgeous!

  9. I have not seen anything like it and so I have not the name of whatever it is called? But I am filled with a strong wish to have factor! Your tea party looks very inviting. The cookies look yummy out! I wish you a wonderful weekend! Zinnia

  10. Betty, what a perfectly lovely addition to your table. Can be used both for serving goodies or with the flowers. Tiny lace paper doilies when using it for cookie etc. It's wonderful!! What a nice friend..AND it isn't taking up tons of room in your cupboard!

  11. Your three tier stand is pretty in white. I have one just like it in silver plated, from England. I love the way you dressed it up, what a great inspiaration to do! Loving the cookies, yummy! Love your friend's doilys, so pretty.

  12. I don't know what it is but I think it is very pretty! You have used it so well. Linda

  13. I've never seen anything like this before! How clever! I love how you are putting it to use.

  14. I have one of these and I love it. I put paper doilies that are just a tad larger than the fold downs, and I serve tea sandwiches, scones, cookies, fudge, and I sometimes put it on my dressing table with real doilies and put my limoge boxes, jewelry, antique makeup cases. I could go on and on. Your setting look very pretty, but, these are just some more ideas as to what to do with this. Hope this helped. Blessings Paula

  15. I have one too - it is silver - I think someone told me it was a folding cake stand. I'll have to dig up that post - someone told me what it was....love how you've displayed it!
    Have a great weekend,

  16. Looks like a few of us have one of these- the store where I bought mine several years ago called it a cookie stand. I put clear glass plates on it to serve cookies- wasn't sure of the paint, and didn't want to risk possible lead contamination. I love the different ways you've used yours, some great ideas!

  17. What beauties! Everything is stunning and the gift a real treasure. I have never seen anything like that and I love it's many uses. Especially love your camelias - just gorgeous.

  18. What a fun table tool - perfect for bringing out the regular and toy tea sets for a grown up OR a little girls tea party. And what fun ideas you've explored in your pictures and your comments for how to use it. Definitely a fun Pink Saturday with one of my fave flowers- the bright camellias. Thank you for an enjoyable stop.

  19. This is the coolest piece ever! You are one lucky girl, love how you've showcased it. Great vignettes, found you at Home and Garden Thursday.

  20. Here from Seasonal Sundays - gorgeous photos! I love your gift - I have often seen similar pieces sold at tea shops and I just always want to get one, you have really made my mind up the next time I see one it is mine for sure! I love how you used it for flowers, just gorgeous!

  21. Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. It always leads me to a wonderful place when people take the time to comment.
    Your gift can be used in so many ways and with the lovely tables you set I can see that you will use it often. I too love lilacs. Wish they grew in Florida.
    Come visit me again and I will you too.

  22. What a fun clever little tea accessory! No idea what the proper name is wish I had one so versatile.

  23. I have no idea if your delightful gift has a proper name, but looks like you can put it to good use. Beautiful flowers and I love your pink Willow. Lovely post.

  24. How lovely!!! Oh I do hope spell check comes in to help me out here...I have used this kind of try, though yours is more lovely to serve...OK...here goes...Petit fours and tiny brunch sandwiches. The local tea party garden uses them to serve everything they offer on their menu~

  25. So pretty!

    Great to have you be a part of Seasonal Sundays. Be sure to visit my most recent post to learn about my GIVEAWAY.
