Cheerful Afternoon Tea Table

For fun, I decided to set up a cheerful Afternoon Tea vignette (with a Caribbean vibe, of course!)

Orchids, teapot and white dishes on afternoon tea set up at home

To stay with the island vibe, I gathered beachy accents along with some pink and blue pieces.  As you can see, my blue and white scarf even picks up the colors in the teapot. 

Recently, I found the cute teapot at Homegoods.  

If you want that island feel, you can’t go wrong with orchids.

 Against the white tablecloth, their bright pink color really stands out.

From my dining room, I brought in the white lantern.

 And what would afternoon tea in the islands be without a starfish?

As always, it’s nice to shop your home and work with what you have!

Ironically, the sun started to come out while I was photographing my table.

I guess the cheerful colors helped to brighten up the afternoon!  Did the sun come out where you live today?
