Polka Rose

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!

  1. This is such a beautiful tea set. I love how the rose pattern is on the inside – it’s like a happy little surprise every time you take a sip. I wish I had a full tea set. Right now, I don’t have the space for one, but I love crushing on ones I see online or in thrift stores. I haven’t done much research so I don’t have a favorite. I can tell that this one definitely fits your style.

    1. That’s just what I was thinking Emily! I love seeing the roses inside the cups. It definitely took me a long time to make the decision to buy one, but I’m so happy I did. Now to make room for it among all my thrifted cups and saucers!
      I hope you are having a lovely summer so far!

  2. Oh, so pretty. I have wanted some Royal Albert china for a while. I might have to get this also. I love polka dots, I have a polka dot and striped cup and saucer set, and it is sooo cute.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m so glad I finally ordered some Royal Albert– it’s just so beautiful! That cup and saucer you described sounds adorable! I love anything striped or polka dotted!
      Thank you for commenting, and have a wonderful day!
