Purple Flowers and Treasured Linens

How much do we love crisp linens?  A pristine and white tablecloth is a perfect choice for giving your table instant elegance.  It can also be a fresh backdrop for any spring table palette.  Linen Guest Towels such as the ones used on my post today are even more special and an added little luxury.  What's more, they are a simply way to add  beauty and polish in a guest room.  But what is truly special about these beautiful and perfectly preserved linen towels is that they were a gift from my lovely sister-in-law Lilly.  It was such a sweet and thoughtful gift.  It really touched my heart.  Regardless of their true worth, they are a priceless family treasure to me.  I am forever grateful...  

Inspired by this lovely gift, I created this very delicate and appealing vignette using nature's loveliest offerings.  Flowers in shades of purple and soft lavender turn out to be a beautiful inspiration for a spring tea time.  A true vision of romance and timeless beauty.




A simple yellow cake with white icing gets adorned with delicate blooms and becomes the perfect accompaniment for this spring inspired tea time.



What a transformation.  The cake turned out beautiful.




Grace Tea Ware artfully displayed evoke the style and grace of a time gone by.






Love the colors on this tea set.




















I even found a small tray that matches this lovely tea set.










Cake anyone??




I hope my pictures bring a little brightness and sunshine to your day.  

Thank you for visiting me.  I hope you all have a lovely week.

Hugs,

Janet
