The Art Of Tea …Floral Friday

It’s ironic in this nation of coffee addicts that so many of us have utensils for the preparation of tea. From electric water kettles, to fancy tea sets, they fill our cupboards, and spill over into garage sales and thrift stores.

In the world of floral arts, old tea pots and tea cups are favorite props for comforting, homey arrangements. Today, I share a few of my own interpretations.

Blue Cornflower is the most popular style of vintage Corningware. This water kettle from the late 1960s holds a simple spray of blue Peruvian lilies.

A souvenir-promotional jug from Tea, South Dakota is not only a fun conversation starter, it makes a great flower vase for some warm-toned blooms. In case you are wondering, Tea is a town of about 5,000 people near Sioux Falls in the eastern part of the state.

An intricately decorated vintage teapot from Japan can be a stand-alone decor piece. I used one of the theories of Ikebana for added effect. A simple branch of blossoms enhances the traditional design of the vessel.

The Blue Jay of Happiness likes a tea quote from singer Rod Stewart. “Brewing a good cuppa is not something everyone can do, and I loathe bad tea.”
