Prepare yourself for tea set photo overload! This set has a bit of a story. I first fell in love with Royal Albert’s Polka Rose pattern around five years ago. I had grown up loving their classic Old Country Roses china, and even had a mini tea service for my dolls in that pattern. When I discovered Polka Rose, it seemed like the perfect updated edition of an old favorite, and fit my personality perfectly. After stalking it on the internet for several years, I finally decided to order it as a graduation present to myself! 😉
The set is the prettiest pale mint green speckled with white polka dots. I love the gold rims, and the sprinkling of pinky roses. I ordered the tea service and four tea cups and saucers off of Amazon which was a bit cheaper than other sites. Eventually I’d love to add plates and serving-ware to my collection. I think it’s the perfect vintage tea set, and I can’t wait to use it for tea parties!
To me nothing feels quite as elegant and grown-up as a lovely china tea set. I love noticing them in period films, and I’m thrilled to have one just as pretty as Anne of Green Gables or Emma Woodhouse. 🙂
Do you like vintage styled tea sets? What does your favorite look like? I’d love to hear!
P.S. I un-boxed this set on Snapchat! For fun things like that follow me at flowerchildmuse!
