Tea and Cream Cheese Cups with Mr. Peacock

Tablescape Thursday is brought to you by Susan of http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/. Go visit her site, especially if you are looking for inspirations. I know you will not be disappointed.
A friend of mine brought me some cheesecake cups and I placed them in a server with a dome. The mini cakes looked so pretty which inspired me to do this tablescape.
"Home is where the heart is" and I truly believe in that. I used my bamboo flatware since they match the border of the tray.
and isn't this is so true also?
I bought this tea set and plates at either TJ Maxx or Marshall's. I have a set of Tracy Porter "Artesian" dishes and when I saw this Artesian tray at TJ Maxx in Florida, I was rejoicing because the price is like 80 % cheaper than that at Horchow's.
Ooops, I need to replace one bulb.
Do you see the long metal candle holder? Lady Katherine gave that to me during our Southern Magnolia Belle luncheon. Actually, I won it in the drawing. Isn't it pretty? Thanks again, Katherine! Please pray for Katherine as she is recovering from surgery.
I cut some fresh flowers from the garden and placed them in 2 little Southern Living at Home vases.
The cake pedestal cake is also an "Artesian" by Tracy Porter. I like how the peacock is holding the tray.
I placed a tea light candle holder duck inside a metal cloche, which I bought from a flower shop downtown. I like the nest with eggs on top.


Look at those yummy cheesecakes! I already had some when I decided to do this tablescape. Who can resist..... lol!
Thanks for coming by and thanks Susan, for hosting this event.

Hi Christine,
You always combine the beautiful objects you've collected into such interesting, attractive vignettes. This is no exception! The peacock pedestal is probably my favorite of all the wonderful things you've shown us here.
