Since the Royal Wedding is so early, I decided to call my event a "Breakfast Tea." The plan is to have breakfast foods in the living room while viewing the wedding, and once we've spent a few hours discussing the nuptials we'll move to the dining room for scones, finger sandwiches and other typical teatime fare. I wasn't sure what sort of plates and dishes to use for the "breakfast" portion of the day, but fortunately my shop-owner friend Liz had pulled some great pieces for me and said not to feel obligated, but would I like to borrow them? YES! A teapot with a crown on it is absolutely perfect!
There's even a tiny crown on the spout!
The matching tea tray will be perfect for serving mini-muffins and breakfast breads.
Mugs can hold tea or coffee, which will both be served, and there are matching dessert-sized plates as well.
Liz also found some decorative crowns I'll be using. This will either be the cutest or the most over-the-top tea party I've ever hosted, but either way it's going to be fun!
