Favorite Teacups on my Cake Stand!

I just can't pick one, or even two to call my favorites....and in fact I have others that I would describe as some of my favorites, but they won't all fit on the cake stand!!
These are the 4 I chose (some because of size) to have this special place of honor in my house.
And the cake stand?  Well, it's a present from one of my dear friends.  She made my wedding cake for my wedding, and this was the stand she used and gave as a gift to us.  I love it because I love her!



Delicate roses on a Bavarian cup and saucer,


colorful flowers surrounding the saucer and inner rim of this set,


pale, pale pink cup and saucer with a spray of beauty for the eye as you sip,


and heavily guilded edges with lovely sprays of blooms to complete the arrangement.
Hmmm, I notice that it's missing something....
Perhaps a small posy in the middle of the 4 cups and saucers would complete it.


This blue and white doily is one that I made last year by copying one I found at a sale somewhere!
I love it and it goes well in my kitchen.
Well, I hope you liked my contribution to the Tea Parties this week.
I'm joining in a few of them, listed below.
And don't forget this Thursday is Pearls and Lace Thursday.
Hope to see you there!
Now go ahead and check out all the parties linked below!!!
Have a blessed week!
Doni

Your teacups are so pretty! Each is so different from the others, yet they go beautifully together.

Very lovely teacups - I was just thinking it would be marvelous to see how they were made - how they were inspired - such pieces of artwork! What a sweet story on your cake stand and you did a very good job making that doily! Thank you for sharing with A Return to Loveliness,
You've made it all the more special,

I think it is nearly impossible to pick a favorite teacup. They are like children...each precious in their own right.
I am crazy for your cakestand. It is lovely!!

Hello dear Doni,
I'm so sorry I'm late visiting your tea this week. I've been sick with the flu all week.
Your teacups are just lovely and your cake stand a real treasure! How lovely you have the momento of your precious wedding day from from your good friend too! I think I like the pink teacup best although they are all beautiful! Enjoy the rest of your week.

Blessings,
Sandi
