I was sure I had more than the 3 teapots I found in the kitchen cabinets.
I trekked up into the attic (not my favorite thing) and found a box labeled “teapots”. Woo hoo!
There were items in the box I don’t even remember having so everything must have belonged to Mother.
I am happy to have extra teapots to use at my tea parties.
Two of the pots were so pretty and unusual I added them to the mantel decoration.
In addition there were two Noritake bowls which reminded me of the “Belle Epoch” era when tea parties were plentiful.
I’ll have to use them because they go right along with the pink rose theme I’m planning for the décor.
This treasure trove reminded me that I have a porcelain butter dish.
An old-fashioned butter dish has a perforated tray which sits on crushed ice to keep the butter from melting on during warm dinners. What can I serve to use this neat little piece?
I’m having so much fun planning this tea party. I’ve already had some taste testings of petit fours. It’s a hardship, I know, but someone has to do it.
Have you tried a new food recently that you’re craving?
