Creating a Pink, Green and Gold Mismatched Vintage Tea Set with Cake Stand

We've been collecting together some of our prettiest china finds and taken a selection to show you how easy it is to create your own beautiful mismatched tea set from our vintage teacups. To create the perfect setting for an afternoon tea party we've chosen a pink and green vintage florals theme with lots of lavish gold. 

The Staffordshire Potteries made exquisite bone china teacups and we think these are particularly pretty. We've taken an exceptionally fine Paragon Rose Damask, a Salisbury pink rose and gold, a Queen Anne Gainsborough, Adderley, Elizabethan lily of the valley and Tuscan green floral tea trio. Each trio has a matching teacup, saucer and tea plate. 

Why have just one pattern when you can enjoy them all? The complementary pink and greens give the tea set a designed theme, but of course, if you want to have all mismatched colours and patterns that looks just as lovely. You can add more, or fewer if you wish, and you won't have to worry too much if there is ever a breakage. No more fruitless searching for that elusive bygone pattern. Simply find another vintage teacup that will fit with your scheme. 

We've added a Tuscan cream and green floral cream jug and sugar bowl which matches with one of the teacups and a plate in the cake stand to give the set design continuity. 

We created this beautiful vintage cake stand from a green and gold Adderley cake plate, a Tuscan floral plate and a mismatched Royal Albert Lady Carlyle teacup and Salisbury pink and gold saucer.

Just add guests and serve your cupcakes and tea with a touch of vintage glamour!

We have lots of lovely teacups for you to choose from to mix and match. All of our vintage china was made in England in the Staffordshire Potteries. We spend a great deal of time searching for the best quality prettiest teacups so you're sure to find a pattern to fall in love with. 

To complete your tea set we stock vintage bone china teapots, cake plates and accessories too. This is a Royal Albert teapot in the classic Old Country Roses pattern.

The teacups featured in this tea set are all currently available to buy at Cake Stand Heaven whilst stocks last.
