The Destination I chose is English Countryside. I'm using my Cottage dishes by Thomas Kinkade, these dinner plates were a steal at $3.99 at Marshall's a few years ago:
These thatch-roof cottages remind me of some you see on an English countryside.
Which is your favorite scene? I'm partial to this one since we have a large painting of it:
For the centerpiece I used a tea pot and tea cup as I'm sure you find these inside each of the thatch-roof cottages!
The tins of English teas are on the tray.
Left to right: London Tea, Harrod's Special Blend Tea, and English Afternoon Tea.
The white rose is in honor of Princess Diana:
And, of course, English Ivy entwines the tray!
Cream colored napkins and cream handled flatware is used with the spring green tablecloth.
I placed a crystal water goblet along with a small brandy sniffer, because we are likely to be offered a brandy or sherry with a meal at an English table.
I know this because we have a British neighbor who invited us to afternoon tea and she offered us sherry before the tea!
Here's a place for you!
Which tea would you choose?
I hope you enjoyed my English Countryside tablescape!
Back in September 2009 I did another tablescape using this china with a burgundy tablecloth and a different centerpiece. If you would like to see this tablescape, along with most of our Thomas Kinkade wall paintings, click here.
Thanks, Cuisine Kathleen, and to all the ladies who hosts the parties so we can play with our dishes!
