My "Teacup Tuesday" is a little different take. Growing up I loved everything about "tea parties" and the actual teacup itself. I loved the beauty of each one and how it made me feel grownup to be able to drink out of one of my mother's tea cup.
Now having 4 granddaughters, I thought it would be fun to make a "Tea party in a box", so I found a little miniature set of teacups and set out to make a traveling tea party.
I found an unfinished wooden box, painted, distressed it and covered it in girly papers.
I then started making different tablecloths, placemats, runners, napkins and centerpieces. I used different punches to create butterflies, flower punches, adding glitter, and even used metallic papers to create little "chargers" for a more formal look.
Using different fabrics, I made a lace tablecloth, a runner, and a more formal cloth so they could change it up a bit. I even found a miniature clothes hanger for the lace cloth.
Of course, you can't use the same centerpiece all the time, so I found a cake, candles and and made a little topiary.
All the little pieces fit in this small box with a drawer and the top of the box serves as the dining table.
I have made several custom orders for birthday gifts and even for a grandmother who was having a girl for her first grandchild.
I hope you enjoy my version of the "Teacup Tuesday" challenge and I have enjoyed seeing everyone's treasures.
