Shabby Roses Cottage Tea Tablescape & 3 GIVEAWAYS!

When Kalyn and Ashton were little they had the prettiest garden room.  It was one of my favorite rooms ever.  My Mom painted the ceiling with clouds. I installed white picket fencing around the room with faux climbing roses, foxgloves, poppy's and other flowers.  In front of their bedroom window, which had English ivy growing on the outside, we had an antique wicker canopied daybed.  It ran lengthwise in front of the window and was piled with loads of pillows, silk wisteria on the canopy and climbing roses up the bed posts.  It looked like an arbor with a big bench below.  The highlight of the room was a rock pathway carved throughout the carpet to look like a winding road.  Where the path diverged I had a small street sign painted which read 'Ashton Avenue' and 'Kalyn Court' indicating the names of the little paths/roads.  It was so sweet.   I used to just go sit in that room imagining I was still a little girl, gazing up to the painted sky. 
As my little girls grew, they decided they wanted something different, so away went the cottagey, garden look and in came the fun and funky look with bright colors and a retro/contemporary feel...stylish but not the same Shabby cottage garden feel.  I miss that room and all the frilly, flowery, shabby, girly things that were in it.  I wish I had pictures to share ;-(

I had a chance to create a table with a similar theme and it brought back so many memories.  Kalyn and Ashton actually did alot of work on this table and put a lot of it together.  They both said it's one of their favorites....hmmm...maybe I can re-convert them into wanting this feel in their room!
And Trevor, as you will soon see, had no problem partaking of the treats.  He's always up to something funny, or weird, or both.  Usually both.





My tablescape begins with these quilted chair pads from Patchwork Trails.  I fully intended to use these on the chairs, and even started to.  Kalyn sweetly tied each one in place for me...but then...inspiration hit and I decided these were the perfect thing to tie the entire table (top) together, so they became place mats for my cottage table.
These are not only absolutely gorgeous and so well made, but they serve as little pads to take on the go...to a ball game for use on those hard metal bleachers.  They roll up and can be tied with the ties on the ends.  The backs are a pretty light blue denim.   I love the mix of fabrics and colors.


The girls and I set the table at the bird cage dining table I recently made while the boys and Shawn worked around the warehouse and kept trying to snatch up the cookies.  I was so honored, and so flattered that my table was featured at 5 other blogs!  It will be for sale soon.

I wanted to use transferware at my cottage table so I chose two plates by two different English potters with a roses motif.  I mixed and matched my cups using all different florals.  Some of the transferware is more red than pink, and vice-versa so I tried to stay with the more pink tones.
I layered dinner and salad plates in two patterns, Swinnerton's Kent plates:


and Chantilly Rose Lace, both available in my English Transferware shop.

My next door neighbor had these pale pink damask napkins in her garage sale and the vintage white linen with pink embroidery were purchased online.

At this setting, and around the table I placed handmade lace roses from The Golden Turtle.  I also used one of the hand made lace doilies from this shop and served these gorgeous tile cookies from Le Chic Bakery Boutique

Aren't these cookies beautifully packaged?   Each one has a different tea themed design...teapot, coffeepot, tea cup, etc.

My centerpiece was made using a wreath at the base from Willow Creek Flowers
I made a tiered plate stand with a little frosted aqua blue glass thing-a-ma-jing (don't know what it is) I found at GW.   I layered the lace doilies over transferware plates, added rose moulded sugar cubes and a rose shaped cupcake on top. 
Somebody's wants that cupcake....
and thinks he's so funny he'll actually get it




And, speaking of sugar cubes...are these not the prettiest, daintiest, most perfect little sugar cubes?  These also come from LeChicBakeryBoutique.  These are made by hand in an array of colors and shapes.  Some are even flavored.  I got some orange ones with a spiced orange flavor and cannot wait to try them.   The shop owner knew I was using these in a tea table setting and also sent these cinnamon sticks, dipped in a thin pink coating with rose shaped sugar cubes on the end and tied with ribbon.  How adorable and how nice to stir into a cup of tea, or even coffee.  Wouldn't these be wonderful for your next tea party? Cinnamon flavored coffee is my fave!

Above, the embroidered doily is also from The Golden Turtle and below, my gold demi tea spoons are from
Home and Tea Time Elegance.

For height at my table, and in place of candles and just because they are soooo gorgeous and an unusual and interesting touch to my table I put these hand made lamp shades on some of my lamps.  They are so pretty and so perfect!  Susan has a gorgeous shop of vintage, Shabby Chic-ish items and makes custom lamp shades called My Shabby Rose Cottage.



More cookies from LeChicBakeryBoutique.  They are chocolate coated with walnuts on one side and the other side features a bird...how pretty...which way do I serve?


My little trike filled with dried roses and lacey ferns is another arrangement from Willow Creek Flowers.


And, my shabby chic-ey, kinda freaky kid takes the cake, er, uh I mean cup cake.
(personal note to Trev...I tink).


Ok...have I, do I, use way too many pictures in my posts?  I hope not, but I apologize in advance if I do!
Now for the winner of the cookie giveaway to Mel Mellis's Sweet Treats....congratulations to Martha at Martha's Favorites.  I have sent an email to you to let you know.  Just send me your contact info to pass along to Mhia!  

And now for MORE GIVEAWAYS!  Two sponsors for this post have offered generous giveaways to help you make your next tea party perfecto!

  6. Hi Nancy!
    Your tablescape is beautiful. It's not the color so much, but the wonderful layering and textures.
    I'm more of an Autumn color girl, but that table
    is something.
    I'd love to enter your giveaway.
    I Followed and now, if I ordered something from the La Chic Bakery it'd be the Yellow Rose Sugars and the the Tile Shaped Bird Cookies, they are both too pretty to eat, and at the Golden Turtle....That French Needlerun Black Lace Rose Evening Clutch would be to die for.
    Ok, now how long do I have to stay with my fingers, arms, legs, and eyes crossed?!? hehe

  86. Hi new sister! I am so happy to meet you and hope we become true sister friends in our sorority journey. I apologize up front that this message is a "cut and paste" message to all the sorority sisters because I wanted at least to become a follower of all of you and take a moment to say hello. For those who may not know my youngest son was killed last week and we buried him on Tuesday. I had started my project before that tragic event and am not finished but I did post what I've done on it so far. If you have visited me already I thank you and if not I invite you. I am just not quite at the point of being able to think of something to say individually at this time. I will soon hopefully be able to be active and visiting everyone. Love you already, Mollye
