Fun Whimsical Tidbit Tray

 I couldn't wait to get started on making a couple of tidbit trays for the Magnolia Terrace Tea Room in nearby Spring Hill.  

In the past all my whimsy's have been made for gifts.  

We had a lovely family tea awhile back and I noticed they had an area where you could purchase a variety of  teas, antiques, and fun dishes.  I thought my tidbit trays would look nice there.  I took in some photos of some of my tidbit trays earlier this week and the ladies at the tea room liked them.  So we'll see how this works out.  

My niece, Becky and my mother. 
The shelves in the background hold the items for sale.

This is my first whimsical Tidbit Tray for the tea room

I have been picking up dishes for awhile that I thought would be fun. 

 You will remember this.....from yesterday's post! 

Mixing patterns work when the colors are similar

I think this plate would be so pretty with a variety of cookies on both tiers.
If you would like to see more of the tea party...I blogged about it last year (was it a whole year ago??)

Great tea party tray! How lucky of you to have a good tea room nearby! Thanks for your visit to my blog and especially for your kind comment. The painted rug has held up really well.

The tidbit tray made by stacking them up is such a great idea. Been wanting to try building one, but found no occasion to, sadly :D

Thank you for stopping by my blog via Beautiful Sunday!
