New Plates for the Tea Rooms

My Tea Rooms needed some nice plates. I couldn't expect the customers to eat from inferior, paper plates any longer!
I bought some beautiful plates from Sofía on Etsy. They are all so gorgeous I couldn't decide which design to have - so I chose all different!
I like the odd china kind of look so these will be perfect!
As usual I started changing things and decided I didn't like a lot of the cakes I'd made (some of them 20 years ago) so had a complete clean out of the Bakery Shop. Now it looks tidy but very empty!
The pretty rug was a gift from Flora.
I now have lots more room for new things.
The plates will be used upstairs in the Tea Room, after it also gets a good clean up!
The lovely cupcake plate and Tea Rooms cake stand also by Sofía.
The books on the table were gifts from Kaisa.
The book rack was made for me by my dear friend Bob who died earlier this year.
The cupcake posters were gifts from Oly.

I'm planning a good weekend, I hope you do too.


  1. Son unos platos hermosos!! Buen fin de semana!!

  2. Beautiful purchases, Gill, and the China look is gorgeous. I like your Bakery Shop although it looks quite empty now, it is very stylish and the colors are beautiful. The rug of Flora is a real treasure.
    I have the same feeling when I look at my elder miniatures, sometimes it is good to clean everything up, or/and to adjust them to your taste and your new "requirements", which you now have.
    Hugs, Ilona

  3. Your tea room is lovely, and I think the plates are also very nice, Sofía has wonderful things on her etsy shop:)
    PS:where is the chair from? I love it...
    Hugs, Candy:)

    1. Hi Candy,
      Thank you for leaving your lovely comments and following my blog. If you mean the white wire chair, I usually buy these from Felicity Price. She is reliable and just about the cheapest I've found.
      Hugs, Gill.

  4. I love your tea room and the new plates are gorgeous. Thank you for Sofia's link. I'll check it up later.
    Hugs, Drora

    I love Sofia's plates (I bought some of them too), and I find them to be perfect for your project.
    I am also happy that the rug has found a place :-)
    Lovely hugs
    P.S. Just received my lovely door stop :-)

  12. Hello Gill! I'm happy to have found another fan of Sofia. I love her plates too. Your selection of plates is exquisite!
