Tea and Topiaries

Tea and Topiaries

I’m sharing my tea themed topiaries with you today. I created an arrangement on my kitchen table with the use of a very lovely and dainty tea pot, creamer and sugar bowl. I combined them with various faux succulents I found last year at a popular home decor store.

Topiaries and succulents are very popular in home decor lately. I found my succulent spheres before Christmas and have used them in various arrangements since then. I thought the sphere would sit perfectly on the top of this wonderful tea pot my husband bought for me a little while ago.

I combined the pot and matching creamer and sugar bowl with cups and saucers on a pretty oval wicker tray. I placed another succulent sphere on one of the cups.

Succulent picks were placed here and there to fill out the empty spaces around the items on the tray.

A small faux hydrangea sphere sits on the top of a cute pitcher in the back of the display. It adds another layer to the design and slightly softens the look.

The tea pot is propped on a stack of dessert plates that match my cups and saucers. I differed the heights of the items in my display to give the overall design an interesting appearance. The use of the plates fill in the tray and add to the continuity of the design.

  1. This is my favorite! I love the succulent spheres,the white china brings it out. White china and white ceramic accents are my favorite, forever a staple. Hope you don’t mind, but I have to save this and repost. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  2. What a great idea–looks so spring-time fresh. I love the china, and that is such a sweet teapot. Who is the china manufacturer, LuAnn? I don’t think I’ve seen this pattern when I look for white pieces–so pretty. We’re in for a cold day today but the week-end promises to be more spring-like, which I plan to enjoy. Hope your week-end is a warm and fun one. Hugs!

    1. Hi Bobbi! I can’t wait for spring. It feels like spring one day and then really cold winter the next…it’s crazy! It’s cold today in the 30s, but tomorrow it will be in the 50s.
      Hugs back!

    1. Hi Judy! Thank you for your lovely comments. My wicker woven tray was just the right touch for the display. I’m very happy with the way it came out. I’m happy you enjoyed it too.
      Have a wonderful and peaceful Sunday!

  3. I love the look of succulents, but I have a really bad habit of killing all plants, even succulents, so I love the idea of using the artificial ones, and the great thing is that the artificial ones look so real! I love how you nestled them in the pretty white cup! Thank you so much for sharing over at Celebrate Your Story! Pinning this one right now!

    1. Thanks Chloe for your lovely comments! It’s funny how real succulents can look faux and faux ones look real! That’s whats great about this type of plant! They’re easy to use and decorate with.
      Happy weekend!

    1. Hi Jean! I’m happy you enjoyed my display! Succulents are fun and easy to work with. Pier 1 has the succulent spheres on sale right now, you should check it out.
      Have a lovely weekend!
