Tablescape Thursday & Tea For Three

Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch, is hosting Tablescape Thursday. Go check out her great blog, and all the other wonderful tablescapes you can find there.
This is the tablescape I used when I had my two high-school friends over for tea. The dishes are Homer Laughlin "Chateau". I made the tablecloth and matching napkins from a remnant found at Joann's. The centerpiece is all silk, purchased for pennies also at Joann's.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for stopping by and leaving such nice comments. I really appreciate the visit.

I love pink and green together! And that blue! Oh spring is near, isn't it?

Your faux arrangement is gorgeous. That's what I do for a living. ;)

I adore so many vintage Homer Laughlin china patterns, including this gorgeous one. This table is just stunning, the colors are so dreamy and soft, and I clicked to enlarge the photos to get an even closer look...all of the details are so lovely. And how cute are the teapot napkin rings for a tea party?! Love them!
