Teatime With Quimper

When I went to Florida last November to look at the house that was for sale next to my daughter's house, my daughter and I also visited a consignment shop there. As we were leaving the store, I spotted an 11 piece Quimper ware by the store's window, which included this coffee or teapot, cups and saucers, 4 ashtrays (which I plan to use for a dipping dish), sugar and creamer and bowls.
I asked the sales person if she could give me a discount and she gave me a 10% off. I got them all for about $111. I thought that was a good buy so I bought them and hand carried them on my flight back home.

I already have a shorter Quimper teapot but I like this tall one.
I used blue bird napkin rings.

 It's almost mardi gras time so I served a king cake.

I cut up some Carolina jessamines that are blooming outside and thought they'd be perfect in my little vases.

Thank you so much for stopping by! And a special thanks go to the dedicated hostesses. I appreciate you all!
