So I was thinking, and since Avi and I were The Mad Hatter and Queen of Hearts this past Halloween, we still have costumes! So I was thinking since we already had our costumes all sorted out, all we have to do is set up a tablescape and take some pictures….
But what is a Mad Tea Party, with NO tea cups!?!?
I searched and searched online, but real china tea sets are so expensive! So I figured I would go on an excursion. I checked out a Marshall’s by my house, and I found these really cute white porcelain cup/saucers ! They were only $2.99 a set, so I got 4 sets, and even a tea pot for only $18!
I loved that they were white porcelain, my wheels were turning as I was looking at the cups in the store. The fact that they were practically a blank canvas, was enough for me to scoop them up and take them home! I painted them bright colors (Blue, pink, yellow, green) and I accented the design around the plates with some gold craft paint I had…
I was so excited how they were coming out after the first plate I had done !! Once I was finished, painting the cups and saucers I sprayed them with a clear gloss sealant spray I purchased at home depot.
The only thing that sux about it is that , it is not Glass Paint, so the cups and saucers are not actually useable … which is a shame, cuz they are so beautiful… but I guess I can settle for them just being decorative pieces, and able to use them just for the photo shoot…
Here is a little sneak peek of just one of the plates
This project is to be continued. I have 2 more sets to spray paint, and sometime this week , I want to set up a mock table scape to kinda practice and figure out how I want to lay everything out for the shoot…
Until then, guess what I found bloomed in my backyard this past week?
Finally!! It’s about time, I have ben waiting for these beauties to come out
Here is another exotic flower growing in my backyard. I’m not exactly sure what they are, but they are just as beautiful! On a sadder note, the clematis leaves only last about a week or 2 :-(. Its beautiful pinkish purple vibrant leaves have withered away and wilted off the little wisps…
I miss them already! Well it is getting late here,
I just wanted to share a bit of this weekend with you all…
Have a good night!
