My Spring Tea Party!

It is always a treat when Amber from Follow the Yellow Brick Home is hosting a party!  This Spring Tea Party hop is a great way to gather some inspiration for Mother’s Day entertaining!  I really wanted to style a pretty table out of doors.  Spending a week at my condo on Lake Erie has reminded me that Spring is struggling to arrive up here.   If you are coming from The Painted Hinge, welcome!  

This tea set that came from Home Goods!  Each teacup and each saucer are a slightly different pattern.  IF you want to see a more mix and match tea party, you can look at my Valentine’s Tea Party.  

The rain and wind chased me indoors, so I took over our bar cart and turned it into my tea cart! 
 

Wanting to infuse the feeling of Springtime and outdoors, I used this mossy basket.  This is a leftover Easter basket from Michael’s that was 70% off!  I cut off the carrot trim and went about filling my basket.  I tucked a potted hydrangea, an ivy and a hyacinth in the basket.  Putting a few yellow tulips in water tubes meant I could stick them, into the potted ivy plant.  

Look how pretty the different patterns are on the cups and saucers.  If you look closely, you can see a rose-colored tassel on the one teacup.  

When I spotted these pretty tassel look teaspoons, I knew I had to add them to my tea party!

I didn’t bake, but picked up some sweet little cookies and tarts to share with hot cups of tea.  In the past, I have made little tea sandwichesOne of the napkins I used was used as a tablecloth on top of my tea cart, the rest of them were fanned out beneath dessert plates for guests to pick up as they help themselves to some sweets.

This teapot comes with a little base that holds a tea light to keep the water hot!  Do you want to go a little crazy with an A Mad Tea Party?  

Now, head on the tour to The Petite Haus!  

Here are all of the participants and a little peek!

    1. Thanks so much Carole! This is the only teapot I have with a warmer, but I really love the pattern of this set, myself!

    1. Thank you so much Laura! I am making a similar basket for my own Mom for Mother’s Day.

  1. That tea set is adorable. The colors are gorgeous. I love the tasseled spoons. Precious.

    1. Thank you so much Katie! I love those spoons, too! I am thinking of using them with some real tassels on a table!

  2. I am loving your dishes and those linens goes perfect. Love your tea party table. It is a show stopper! Have a happy Mother’s Day!

    1. Thank you so much Terrie. I love this set, too! The linens are Ralph Lauren from Home Goods. After I bought the tablecloth and napkins at Home Goods I spotted the exact same tablecloth on closeout at Home Sense for $17.00 less! You know I jumped on that and returned the more expensive one!

  3. I have a tea cart used at a coffee bar in our kitchen. Now I’m turning it into a treat bar! And what a fantastic find at Home Goods. I do love that store. Hope you have a great week.

    1. Oh, Home Goods can be dangerous for those of us that love to set pretty tables, can’t it? I love that…a treat bar!

  4. Your spring tea cart is so pretty! I love your moss basket of flowers!

    1. Thanks so much, Angelina! Now, if I could just get that basket to stop shedding moss!

  5. Chloe, I love the moss basket with flowers. All that greenery makes the perfect backdrop for your pretty tea service. Love the mix of vintage patterns on the tea cups too!

  6. Hi Chloe, at first I thought the cups and tea set were vintage. I love the look of antique china! Everything is lovely, and that mossy basket is perfect with the fresh flowers and ivy. So beautifully put together!

  7. So many charming details featured in your tea party, Chloe! I love the colors. Happy to be joining you for the tea party hop this week. Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  8. What a great idea to use the bar cart for your tea set up. I love your pretty dishes and your mossy basket!

  9. When I read that you set this up in your condo on Lake Erie, my mind started to think about what a beautiful spot that must be. The indoor tea party that you set up in your condo is so pretty. When I saw your tea set, I thought for sure that it was an antique. It’s so pretty and I was surprised that it’s new from HomeGoods. There’s no HomeGoods in my town and that’s probably a good thing as I would be there too frequently. The moss covered basket that you scored for 70% off will be great to use all of spring and summer for decorating. I hope you enjoyed your week on Lake Erie and know that you are looking forward to summer visits there.

    1. Thank you so much Paula! I not only have one Home Goods near my home in Florida, I have 3! Now, that is dangerous! It actually took visit to 2 different Home Goods in Ohio to gather all of these pieces for my tea party! I hope to be spending some time escaping the Florida summer heat up in Ohio and hopefully can share a little more of our beautiful lake view!

  10. What a beautiful tea set Chloe! Love the colors and the pattern mix! Your bar cart makes a great spot for serving your tea! What a fun theme for the hop, too, I’m off to visit more links!

  11. Such a gorgeous tea set and the cart is fabulous. Your setting is so pretty and looks so inviting.

  12. This is such a beautiful tea set Chloe! I love all the details with the flowers and the pattern. Your bar cart is fabulous and I bet it’s so convenient to have throughout the year too. Hope your having a great time! Hugs, CoCo

  13. Chloe, I love how your reused an Easter basket for spring tea party. Using the bar cart is a great idea. Your layering of napkins and teal cups and saucers it so rich and lush. Very nice. Happy Mother’s Day friend.

    1. Thank you Carol! Now, if I can just get that basket to stop shedding moss! Happy Mother’s day to you!

  14. Chloe,
    A little bad weather never stopped a fun time at a tea party…. outdoors or in. Your tea spoons were destined for a party, and that repurposed Easter basket with Spring flowers is perfect.

  15. Chloe I love your bar cart turned tea cart styled with pretty spring flowers and beautiful teacups! I just love those patterns and napkins you used.

    I have never seen a tea pot with a tea light holder like that. Genius!
