I Love Gifts in Pretty Boxes!

Hi Everyone!

Don't you love when you open a gift and the box that the gift is in is really pretty?

This is one of the gifts I received from Troy this Christmas. It came in this pretty blue box.

It was lined in a lovely white satin.

Here is what was inside.

A beautiful one person tea set.

You all know by now that I just love pretty teacups and teapots so, I was so happy to see this pretty rose set.

Here are both sides of the teacup.

The saucer. Such beautiful details and colors!

The teapot. Also pretty details.

The set is made by Burton + Burton. I think he bought it at the Home Goods store.

You will excuse me now while I go wash this pretty set and make myself some tea. I have a good book calling my name!

As I enjoy my tea, I hope you stop by these parties...

  13. This is lovely, Diann, I've never seen a tea set for one before...it's charming!

  14. What a beautiful set.
    I think people don't want to give me things in pretty packages because I want to save the wrappings and boxes and bows, etc.

    I posted today about a new meme about collections.
    If you have an old post to link up it would be appreciated.

  15. Hey Diann! :) Thanks so much for linking up with me...you're such a blessing!
    I LOVE your pretty teaset AND the box! I gave a friend of mine a gift this year and really prettied it up with a lovely velvet box. She did the whole ooooohhh and ahhhhh thing before she opened it...made me smile. :)

    Hugs to you my friend!

    What a gorgeous share this evening. I love this rose pattern. I love the way it changes from the one side to the opened view on the other. So delicate. Just perfect for that occasional cup of tea to brighten your afternoon.

    I have got to tell you, that red tablecloth, sure caught my eye. I love red, and it is so beautiful.
