Rose Tree Chintz Table

 My tea table is set with Royal Patrician Rose Tree Chintz 
English Bone China using black napkins with vintage teapot napkin rings. 
The beautiful centerpiece in a teacup was a thank-you gift 
from Ms. Flara and the AP Senior English class. 
I chose back napkins for this tablescape on a whim because there is so much white, 
from the tablecloth to the roses in the china and centerpiece.  
What do you think?

P.S.  Do you recognize this tea set in my header?

Your table looks lovely! Crownford called this pattern Apple Blossom but I always love the Rose Tree Chintz name.

Pretty! There is something striking about the napkins with all the pink and floral! I rather like it! Fun to experiment and try different things out. Lovely.

Love the black napkins for the contrast. Great idea! Your teaset and the gift of the teacup arrangement are so pretty.

Hi Linda,
I love your Rose Tree Chintz! And yes, I noticed right away that it is the same as that in your header. The pattern is so delicate and sets a beautiful table. The teacup gift is very thoughtful and makes a cute centerpiece. Thank you for coming to tea this week. Happy Memorial Day!

OK, I would never in a million years have thought to try black napkins here but by golly it WORKS--beautifully! I think I read somewhere once that the Victorians said you should have at least one black something in a room. Maybe that applies to the tea table as well!

I used this same pot and cup and saucer for my Tea Time Luncheon today! :) It was a gift from former students and quite a treasure to me.

The little teacup centerpiece is sweet and the black napkins add drama, for sure !

In fact, in excess of what we had known before we stumbled on your excellent blog. My spouse and i no longer have doubts as well as a troubled mind because you clearly attended to the needs in this article. Thanks
