Red transferware challenge #4: April and OCR

Welcome back diners! I am late again with my post and will likely only get around to one post this month :( -

Many people pair OCR with red, I prefer burgundy or hot pink and yellow. Here is the Royal Doulton OCR pattern paired with one of my red transferware patterns and these beautiful Heisey Sarah yellow Carcasson coup glasses on loan for this and the previous setting from my Friend Margaret and Dinners sponsor Nowvi. What I love about these glasses is that they are definitely a vibrant yellow, not a pale one. I also used Oneida Coronation flatware to go with this British feeling tea setting. The hand-painted roses on yellow tea cup and saucer was also the perfect edition. With four red transferware plates to select, I chose this specific one because it was the most pink and included some nice cabbage roses.

For this setting, I decided to present a tea-service for one. Even if you're enjoying tea alone, it should be beautiful!

These little Haviland ramekins are perfect for jam and clotted cream for the warm scones.

The little spoons are a brass cast of pea pods, complete with pearl-peas! A favorite gift from my husband.

I also used the OCR teapot, coupled with a sweet little rose pattern creamer and sugar set.

Of course every tea setting needs a three-tiered platter for all the great eats. In this case, its filled with old roses!

There is actually a very neat order for arranging fabulous eats on a three-tiered tray. Layer one: tea or finger sandwiches and savories. Layer two: is for scones, hopefully warm so the clotted cream melts into the scone. Layer three: the really good stuff: Nanaimo bars, lemon squares, chocolates and so much more!

Here are a few more pics -

Thank you for visiting! Hopefully May will bring more time for two or even three posts including Red Transferware challenge #5: Mothers Day tea. Please check out our sponsors and be sure to visit Nowvi for great vintage finds.

Please feel free to comment and share with others who enjoy a beautiful table! Until next time, enjoy something beautiful and hope to see you back in May!
