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 sandwiches.  One 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. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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!

  4. 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

  5. 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!

  9. 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.
