A teatime decorating dilemma

Over the weekend I was in a Ross store and came across some cute placemats that looked like they would be perfect for teatime decorating this fall. I couldn't decide which set I liked best, so since they were just $4.99 per set I got both and decided I will give away one set of the placemats to one of you! So here's the deal:

These larger teacups looked more tea-ish to me, until I got home, removed the cardboard packaging and discovered the words "cappuccino" and "mocha" on them! Ack! But ... I like them anyway, and I think these would be very pretty on a fall table.

This design doesn't have any unexpected wording on it, and it, too, is pretty for fall decorating, but on the other hand it's also a little busier. So, I can see myself decorating with either set. I'm perfectly fine with any of these, so please tell me if you would like to win A) the set with two cappuccino/mocha cups B) the set with the six teacups/mugs or C) two of each design. I'm not opposed to a little mix 'n match decorating, and besides, then you'd always have fall linens for you and one friend no matter what beverage she chooses! Just tell me your choice before 7 a.m. EST tomorrow and new placemats could be headed your way. Good luck!


  1. Hi Angela
    Since I like coffee as much as I like tea, I would be very happy with the mocha cappuchino set.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. The colors are very pretty and I'm not opposed to mix n'match. You know I'm a tea granny, married to a coffee guy. ;-)

    Thanks for the fun giveaway.

  3. have to admit, I prefer the teacups. We don't drink coffee at all at our house.

    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh, you always find the funest things! They do have a nice fall color to them, don't they? I would be happy with B, the set with the six cups/mugs. Thanks for the give away!

  5. Like the ones w/ no words but think sharing the sets would work for me also. You are my shopping idol!!

  6. Hello, Angela! What a great eye you have for unique & beautiful items. I love the colors in this set - I like the 6 cups / mugs. Thanks for such a fun contest, Joanie

  7. Hi Angela,

    Love your newest 'tea find'. These certainly would be perfect for fall and I'd love to join in the giveaway. My favorites are the ones with the six cups. Thanks for sharing them with us.

  8. Hi Angela: I love both sets. That a get deal. Thank you for the chance to win. Blessings, Martha

  9. Since we are a Tea and Coffee home the mixed set would be neat !!!!
    The brown colors would look great in my kitchen.
    Fall will soon be here.

    Thank You Angela for sharing your finds.
