Teawares at the Fashion Luncheon

The table decorations at the Fashion Luncheon I wrote about yesterday were so cute I wanted you to see them, so as soon as the women started clearing out I whipped out my trusty Canon PowerShot and started snapping photos! Someone did a really nice job of coordinating the colors of this teapot and the hat, don't you think?

I really liked the two-tiered server with the bunny rabbit on top, seen at left here. The hat, gloves and purse in this centerpiece are so pretty and something that would fit right in with today's looks! (Have you noticed that lace is "in" again? Not that it ever went out for some of us!)

This elegant teapot was one of my favorites, and upon closer inspection I noticed a chipped spout and a crack or two, but yet this piece obviously still has sentiment for someone, and I like that!

It was fun to see a red toile hat paired with this old china doll in a red dress, and on the other side of this arrangement ...

... you can see soft red roses on the teawares. Nice!

Isn't this hat beautiful? I thought the attractive taupe palette made this quite a lovely centerpiece.

And finally, the afternoon light was streaming through the window behind this bunny rabbit, and he just seemed to be saying, "Take my picture, please ..." So I did!

What a great theme for a tea and what great centerpieces! The teapot is Victorian, the design/style is called imari and which was popular from the 1850s to 1930s. I have a matching hot water to the teapot...had the rest of the teaset but only have the hot water left. I LOVE imari!
Thanks for sharing!

Hello, Angela - I love this post!
You really captured all the beauty - your photos are exquisite. Each table had such a variety of colors and themes, so creative.
The bunny shot with the sun streaming behind it is especially nice.

I am so glad I had the opportunity to attend, it was truly a memorable event. And your photos help preserve all the beauty -
thank you! Joanie
