Table Spread for "Tea-Day 2017"

Hello sweet friends !

     For "TEA DAY 2017" I have created a table with a hand crochet table topper, my 'Old Country Roses' Royal Albert three tier; from Madrid - last May I got for MD from hubby and the plate from DD Alex.

 The tea set and teacups are antique from after WWII and they are Bavarian-Made in US-ZONE, Germany. I once read that these things were made in Germany around 1946-1948.

Tomorrow that mother comes to spend the day with us we will have tea time afternoon and devour enjoy all these goodies I have displayed here, lol... 

Ok, here you have it and I hope you enjoy it too.
The only thing I didn't mention at the top is that the salad plates are from my Tognana china, dinnerware  from Italy. I realized that the porcelain color is exactly alike the German tea set; plus the color of the design as well.

Sweet Cinnamon rolls here too.
I love cheese with my bread, so there it is at your right.

My mother's favorite 'Vanilla Pound cake. '
The beautiful Bavaria, antique US-ZONE, Germany tea set. I read that they were made around 1946 until only 1948, this makes them collectors items.
One of my fav china is this lovely Italian-Tognana dinner ware for eight place settings that
I own for maybe more then 30 years.
Didn't they matched really perfect!

This pretty white tureen is my new find from a couple of months ago.

It says Honk-Kong in the back and it has 'Fleur de Lys' all around it and in the lid as handle too and it looks like it would be part of my lovely white pitcher !

The best part is that it was only $20... so I couldn't pass it up, it kept on screaming my name...hehehe

It has an old world charm to it that I love.

Thank you for your kind comments dear friends, you always make my day !

Thanking the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
