|Margie's Tea Room|
In May of this year, I was asked by a friend if I could make a TEAPOT as a centerpiece. My response, "Sure, I can try." I had the perfect pattern, but I had never made one. Needless to say, I got busy with a sample. At this point, I didn't know how many she needed. I'm thinking...1 maybe 2 at the most? Boy, was I wrong!! I got the shock of my life....
|YIKES, Look at all of those PIECES!!!!|
My friend works for a Assisted Living/Retirement Village in our area. They were planning a Mother's Day Brunch and were looking for reasonably priced teapots. Now, I have to say, my centerpieces are not cheap, but I gave them a deal if they ordered in bulk. OMG...they needed 20....in a week!! A week??? I had one of my helpers give me a hand...and production was started.
They came out so adorable!!! I made all different soft colors and hinged the lid with a little coordinating bow. I added a little doily to the bottom as well.
Not only did they want 20 teapots. but they also wanted 100 strawberries!! Luckily, I didn't have another job that week, so I was able to start right away.
I loved the way everything came out. So darling! Thanks for stopping by everyone. More parties coming this week...so visit again tomorrow.
