This idea is not an original with me by any means. I found the idea on a favorite blog I read.... Very Merry Vintage Style.... click here to see her many neat ideas!
This picture shows how I placed the fall looking items in the base.
And this next picture shows it with the candle in a small white bowl.
That is how I would use it if I was burning the candle. But when not burning I would leave out the bowl.
For Tea Cup Tuesday this week I found this Spode plate to use to get in the mood for fall. And placed it next to some Chinese Lanterns from my garden.
For the cup and saucer this week I selected this one from Royal Vale, I couldn't find a pattern name anywhere. But I like the colors for fall.
After you visit my post today be sure to check out these other tea posts.
AND, check back on Friday. I have a series of posts" about making fabric flowers. Don't know how many weeks it will go but this will be the third week and I will be working on more soon.
