|Home Goods plates; vintage teacups from another china set; Home Goods place mats; tea towels (which I use as napkins) from a little shop in Minneapolis|
|Lemon curd and strawberry with champagne jam are held in glass bowls with glass serving spoons from local shop, Bungalow; clotted cream is in vintage Waterford; butter dish from Home Goods|
|Scones, shortbread and chocolate fingers are placed on Home Goods two-tiered plate stand.|
|Sandwiches are placed on a tiered glass stand from Home Decor. Note the sweet birds perched at the top; they fit right in with the bird motif on the plates.|
One of the best parts of having a tea is setting the table. I love the green bird and flower patterned china that I picked up at Home Goods this spring so I started with those plates.
|The only new items on the table: two candelabras from Home Goods (where else?)|
I couldn't resist these candelabras. I'll probably put them into storage after the tea and bring them out again at Christmas. I can picture them during that season surrounded by silver and sparkle.
|Butter knives and additional tea spoons are corralled in silver cups|
|Home Goods tea pot, sugar, creamer, and tray|
|Home Goods jar; Nordstrom's candleholders|
