Tea Table Using Philippine Handicrafts


My cousin sent me a tea box and a table topper from the Philippines. They are both made out of natural fibers and are hand made. I really like them so they serve as my inspiration for this week's tea table.




Isn't that a pretty tea box? Looks like the bottom part was weaved out of palm leaves. I like them so much that I ordered a lot to sell in my shop. I think they will make perfect Christmas presents because they are unusual. In fact, I ordered enough so I can give tea boxes to the referring doctors for Christmas. Do you think they will like them?




I used the same topper for my tablescape last Thursday.




The Bavarian teaset is made by Tirschenreuth.







I really love the textures, both of the box and the topper.

Hi Christien
I haven't visited you for awhile, nice to see your tea table this week. The tea box is quite unusual and will make a nice gift with teas in it. The tablecloth is unique too.
