Nothing like a huge cup to set the stage for a tea.

I love the counter play of the blue and white.

I fell in love with this little Hall tea pot when I found it at a tag sale.

You are so right about blue and white...especially light blue and white - so summery and fresh.

That is a wonderful tablescape!

Can you let us know about the huge teacup? Who made it? It's adorable!

Oh, love the wee teapot! What sweet blue and white pieces. They remind me of Wedgwood/Jasperware. Another cute tea table and thank you for sharing it with my Anne Tea. Have a beautiful day.
