Tea Set from Jordan

I'm joining Susan at Between Naps on the Porch again today for Tablescape Thursday.



This week I thought I would share a tea set that I purchased when we lived in Jordan. It's a lovely little pale green set for six. However, it does not include plates or any other pieces.




So I thought I'd just give you a peek!



This lovely tablecloth is from Syria. We purchased it in Damascus on one of our monthly trips there. The table is three meters long so you can imagine how long the tablecloth is! I have several different tablecloths which I will share later in the fall.




Thanks for looking!

Elegant tea set and lucky you to have lived in such a pretty place. The tablecloth is amazing in length and is so pretty. It would be hard to find a tablecloth so pretty here.

What lovely china and tablecloth! They remind me of items my aunt brought back from her days in Iran. The handwork on the cloth is exquisite.
