At the Table: Roses, Bunnies, and Pfaltzgraff Tea Rose Dinnerware


Happy February! February’s arrival means we’re one month closer to spring, so I’m at the table with roses, bunnies and Pfaltzgraff Tea Rose dinnerware.


Blooming since 1985, Pfaltzgraff Tea Rose blends the traditional romance of roses with the charm and a touch of the English countryside and is a pattern that continues in popularity.


Carved white chargers with decorative scrolls complement the scalloped edges of the plates, while a patchwork floral quilt provides a soft and old-fashioned foundation as a tablecloth, for the delicate watercolor roses of the Tea Rose dinnerware.


Our temperatures are back in the mid 60s this week and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for an early spring!


I like to use a theme to build a table, inspired by color, a holiday or a season. With thoughts of spring, flowers, and eggs, I hopped straight to Easter, which is falls on March 27th this year, for a little early Easter fun at the table.


I went hunting through my stash of eggs to join a bunny at the table, along with tiered server for an easy centerpiece of decorative eggs and cupcakes.


I found floral paper baking cups with roses to complement the Tea Rose dinnerware.


And I used the two-ingredient cupcake method of baking for a quick and easy batch of cupcakes! Instead of baking in the floral print cups, I used them as decorative sleeves for the cupcakes and added some pastel pearl sprinkles to decorate the frosting.


Alstroemeria blooms, available in bunches for $4 at the grocery store, provide some welcome blooms to the bunny’s basket along with a few Easter egg picks.



Speckled jelly beans fill Tea Rose mugs on the centerpiece . . .


And Tea Rose All Purpose Stemless Wine Glasses provided some additional flowers for the table.



A Rustic Floral Hurricane is available in the Tea Rose pattern.


And I used white rustic ceramic napkin rings to marry the antique white ceramic base of the hurricane.


Constructed of stoneware, Pfaltzgraff Tea Rose is microwave and dishwasher safe.

    Sooooo pretty! It’s warm enough to feel like March here in New England. Nothing but browns outside, and it’s nice to see a reminder of the colors that will return.

      Hi Ellen thanks for all your comments and visits! The eggs with the bunnies came from Michaels this year :)

    Hi Mary, The Pantone color of the year is actually the two colors of rose quartz and blue serenity used together to create “tranquility and inner peace” and this beautiful and dainty pattern is the perfect illustration of how well those two colors work together! During this kind of brown, dusty, lukewarm winter up here I am ready for the pretty colors of spring and eggs and bunnies too. I think I will go on an egg hunt for your cute musical chicks egg today!

    Such a fresh breath of air to start February! Thank you Mary! Bunnies, flowers, pastels and jelly beans can only bring smiles and spring. I love the quilt as a table top for this vintage looking dinnerware, the whole table is so sweet and delicate. Your tiered basket is overflowing with delicious eye candy, and you are so right, Easter will be hopping along before we know it!

    Mary, your blog is my happy place. Love to see what you have in store for us everyday. Really enjoyed your spring Easter table. We are first time grandparents and our 3 year old granddaughter loves to have ‘teas’ with her musical tea pot and plastic tea cakes. Just purchased a Bordallo Pinheira tea pot with matching frog demitasse cups and I have a mish mash of pretty salad plates and serving pieces with rabbits, frogs and mice. So this weekend Mommy and Daddy will join us for her first ‘real tea’. I take my inspiration from your beautiful tablescape’s and book’s (like the fairies (bought two of the pop ups for her after your potting shed blog) So excited, she loves to put on her apron and help peel eggs and make cut out cookies, should be lots of fun. Please keep up your wonderful blogs, its so much fun to view and read. And, the photos of Gracie and Chole just put a smile on my face, their adorable!!!

    Everything looks so delicate and lovely…just as the first shoots of spring will be…think I’ll head out to Michael’s today to go on an egg hunt! Thank you so much for sharing your creativity…

    Oh my heavens, simply beautiful! Now, I’m so anxious for spring! Thank you for sharing such wonderful photographs!

    Sweet springtime table. Aren’t Pantone colors of the year rose quartz and serenity blue, just like your china?

  19. February 1, 2016 at 5:40 pm

    Dreaming of spring, are we? This is full of yummy goodness. Makes me want to pull out the Easter things. ;-)

  20. February 1, 2016 at 6:25 pm

    I did a little Spring/Easter retail therapy today and got some cute things! This pattern reminds me so much of my Grandmothers dishes. Your quilt is the perfect background and the astromeria blooms are beautiful. I actually looked at some at the grocery today and ours are $7.99 for a buch of 7 stems! Love that bunny, but then I love all your bunnies. I still have the snowmen out but plan to get most away this week. Have a beautiful evening!!!

    Such a cheerful post. I am itching for spring but the truth is we haven’ t had much winter so I’m afraid to get my hopes up. Such a sweet serene dish pattern and you showed it beautifully on the quilt with so many cute bunnies and the darling floral cupcakes holders. The cupcake recipe I will remember because I am lazy. Adding the pastel pearls and putting them in the floral holders looks like you really fussed.

    Very pretty Mary, nice to see the soft colors. I guess we’ll see what Punky Phil has to say about spring tomorrow:@)

  23. February 1, 2016 at 10:07 pm

    Just beautiful! I love the fabric on the napkins and the sweet soft colors in the dishes!

    I have this pattern :-). Just enough pieces in my hutch for four friends to enjoy coffee and some sweet treats. I was so happy to see this :-)

    Love the beautiful tea rose dinnerware as well as the bunnies and Easter theme. It’s hard to believe Easter will be early on March 27th. Ready for spring especially since the temperatures here have warmed up and the weather forecasters are calling for thunderstorms tomorrow.

  26. February 9, 2016 at 7:12 pm

    Everything is so nice and inspiring, it is such a pleasure to read your blog posts, a treat to the eye and mind. Thank you.

  27. February 11, 2016 at 2:00 pm

    Wow! That is beautiful!
