April Fool's Mismatched Tea


Please join me for a special mismatch tea.  Because it is April 1st, I'm mismatching colors and patterns, throwing in some Easter guests, and serving an extra special tea in your cup.

Where would you like to sit?  There are three choices:

This seat is a mix of Aynsley Chelsea gold from last week's tea party, with Fraconia Millefluers.


Or, if you prefer, a mix of Royal Albert's cheeky pink with Hammersley's Victorian Violets.

Or maybe my favorite combo:

This is a mix of Royal Albert's Old Country Roses on the bottom with an Allerton Ltd. three piece set with no name.  Most of this set isn't marked, except for the saucer.

Here is the mark:

This mark was in use from 1915 to 1929.  I think this is probably my oldest set.
Have you picked?  Please have a seat!  Do you see the cute napkin?  It's a tea party on a napkin!
Would you like some salt or pepper with you tea? 
Yes, I said salt and pepper!  I'm serving one of Numi's new savory teas, Fennel Spice, but more on that tomorrow.
I also have an extra special dessert cupcake:
My sister gave me the pretty display dome with the pink plate.  Would you like to have a taste?
April Fool's!  It's a Christmas ornament :).

  1. What a fun idea! Love the Mix matched table you set and all the fun it holds! Love the pretty dishes and tea pot and the hysterical cupcake ornament, you had me there! Thanks for the kind visit today. I love that we have the same tea tin! I normally drink Earl Grey tea and love a double bergamot one that is very strong, so I keep it aside as not many of my friends like it so strong. Meanwhile,I don't drink herbals, so we swap when they come over. Enjoy the day!

  2. Hi Carrie,

    I enjoyed your mismatched tea table for April Fool's. You have so many pretty dishes and I adore those napkins! I would love one of those cupcakes ... oh, I mean Christmas ornament :-)

  3. I am very fond of mix and match. Even the chairs around my table are "mix and match." There are so many lovely cups and saucers, why not enjoy them as many as possible.The cupcake ornament is such fun!

  4. What fun; I love mix and match! It makes for an intersting setting. I LOVE your teapot and the Christmas cupcake is a sweet surprise. Thank you for joining me for Tea Time and have a lovely day.


  5. Very cute! Mix and match is quite popular at tea rooms now too. Love your china choices. The napkins are perfect! Love the salt & peppers too. So cute! Thanks so much for linking to Tuesday Cuppa Tea!

  6. I adore your "Mismatched Tea" ! eclectic and lovely. I imaged myself sitting down at your table like Alice in Wonderland would.
    Looking forward to your blog postings.


Thank you so much for your comment! I hope you have a wonderful day :)
