Spode Byron Tea and Coffee Buffet

Last Thursday I posted a tablescape using Spode Byron which you can view HERE.  I set up the buffet for coffee, tea and dessert.  Grab a cup and pull up a chair. 

   Each piece depicts a different view of rural, English country life.

 These flatware holders are perfect to hold small tea spoons and forks.  The fabric these are made of is the same fabric that I had custom valances for the shop made from.  The scenes are perfect with that of the Byron dishes.  I didn't realize this when I chose the fabric.  Aren't they cute?  Heidi, at Green Onion Designs make these flatware holders in different fabrics...or your own.
 The flatware  tips are embellished with little teapots...too cute. 
This is a large charger or chop plate which I rested on a vintage amber cake pedestal to give it a little height.  I love the scene on this piece.  It is called Pet of the Common by J C Horsley and depicts three children in a field, one holding a baby donkey.
