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.
