I also pulled out a few of the doilies I have to add to the display. The tassel had been hanging on my bedroom door so that to went in the display.
The bottom cup was a gift to me from a dear friend. It has lovely shades of green which I don't have in any other of my cups.
The cute silver spoon is a Christmas tree ornament that I thought would go quite well in this display. It does look rather rich with the tea cups so I'm pleased. The cake plate I am using I won from a raffle last year. I love it as it goes so well with the big collection of ruby flash Early American Pressed Glass items I have.
You can see I have used it in other displays around the house.
The middle cup and saucer do not match but go together rather well I think. I like the style of the three legged cups as they are just a little different. When I have a cup or saucer with out a mate I enjoy looking through second hand stores or antique shops for something that will go well with it. I like picking up just a cup or saucer if I really like it since I know if I just keep looking I'll find a mate for it.
The simple top cup has the pretty silver design to it.
I found the single rose in another display around the house so I decided it needed to be over here with this one for a little more interest. The small white doily helps to highlight the red rose against the red crocheted doily.
I had fun changing out the Christmas decorations around the house and putting up some new ones.
