There's no reason whatsoever why you can't serve lemon tea, caffè latte or cocktails in teacups, so why not try desserts too? We have ways to impress your guests! Sweets are just exquisite presented in gorgeous teacups.
Lovely vintage teacups do not have to be kept aside for hot tea. Delight your friends and family and serve dessert in a teacup. Anything cold is ideal. What could be more delicious than a teacup filled with a home made trifle? Hmm, or chocolate mousse or Eton Mess or fruit cocktails with a shortbread biscuit served on the saucer.
It's not obligatory to shove teddy in the teapot! At the infamous 'Tea Party' the Mad Hatter pushed the Dormouse face first into his. I think Ted looks cute and happy in there. Why hide the teapot in the cupboard when it has other uses? Oh, did I mention that teapots make great flower vases at shabby chic tea parties? I digress....
We've designed a collection of cake stands especially for filling with sweets and treats. You can use the dish top for strawberries as we have. Great too for a savoury dip with olives and crudités on the side.
Be creative and have fun with your cake stand. A cake stand is not only for cakes! You could stack your pots of pickles and preserves in the kitchen. Bring breakfast toast and jam to the table with a touch of vintage glamour. Use your imagination and enjoy.
If anyone has a truly novel idea for making the most of a cake stand we'd love to hear from you!
