Timeless "Eternal"

Hello my friends, won't you please join me for a cup of tea?  Don't be shy, please come in and have some tea with me.  I'm linking with Sandi from Rose Chintz Cottage for Tea Time Tuesday, Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday, Marty from A Stroll Thru Life, and Katherine from Lady Katherine Tea Parlor.

I have brewed some Darjeeling tea for us and today's teacups are from Lenox.  This pattern is called "Eternal".  This classy pattern is made from ivory porcelain, and is trimmed with a wide band of striking gold.  Each plate is also accented with a thinner gold verge line.  The simple gold bands that encircle Lenox Eternal pieces are symbolic of the wedding band.  I love the elegance of this pattern - it is timeless!  I am sure you will see this set again.

I have paired these teacups with some beautiful rose linens. The flatware is Gorham in the Golden Ribbon Edge pattern and compliments the gold-accented dinnerware.




Perhaps you would like a fresh pizzelle with your cup of tea.  These Italian waffle cookies are delicious sprinkled with confectionery sugar.

The ivory candle holder is also from Lenox and is decorated with an intricately pierced design.  I love the way this votive glows and the accents of pure 24 karat gold gleam when the candle is lit.

Thank you for joining me today and to our hostesses Sandi, Susan, Marty and Katherine.

Hi Donna
Your tea table is very inviting....beautiful china and placemats that I just love. I have 'Butterfly Meadow' from Lenox china and always get compliments on how pretty it is.
Next to biscotti, I think crisp pizzelles are a favourite to have with tea.
Wishing you a very Happy Easter.

Your tea setting is lovely. I have a pizzelle iron that I've never used. You've inspired me to take it out and put it to use.

Many blessings

Gorgeous setting. The pizzelles look amazing! I used to work with a guy whose wife made them and he would bring them to work. I miss that.
