Well, Coffee Loves Bailey's
A few years ago, I saw a blog that posted a New Year's Eve dinner where the hostess served coffee in these cups!
I have forgotten who that lady was, so if you are she or if you know her, let me know. I would like to give her credit for my obsession! Bob may also want to speak with her as well!
It turns out that these beauties were sold by Bailey's Irish Cream as Limited Edition Advertising Novelties
As I set out on my quest to acquire twelve cups, there are no saucers made for these. I discovered that there
was also available, a sugar and creamer. WooHoo!
I found a set of those as well.
obsession quest continued, would believe, yes, you would, there was a coffee pot available also? You've seen the pictures, you know how this ended.
|You can see the coffee pot better here as I was beginning to set up the service.|
You have already noticed the cups come as ladies and gents. The sugar bowl and coffee pot are gents and the creamer is a lady. I am thinking a guy designed these, cuz the sugar and coffee pot (the boss of this group) are gents. As we all know, ladies are much sweeter and we are the BOSS! However, we are very nice so we'll give'em ONE!
I had planned to share this adorable service for some time. Recently I found these adorable Kemp and Beatley napkin rings and knew the time was right. Don't you agree that these are perfect with Mr. and Mrs. Bailey?
I have used my crochet lunch napkins from Horchow.
I purchased these napkin rings last month on Ebay. Only Rena knows what a hard time I had getting them delivered. NO fault of hers but mine and our fabulously efficient post office.
I have set up the breakfast sideboard for coffee, muffins, cinnamon rolls, berries and of course Bailey's (I feel funny about showing Bailey's on the blog. Besides they're not paying me).
A small footed plate and cloche, dollar tree ribbon and hydrangea that has already dried.
A matching reticulated cup for strawberries and a vintage handmade lace piece. Hey, Shelia, I scrunched it! That's good right?I have used Wallace's Golden Aegean Weave sterling.
Serving goodies on Westmoreland's Forget Me Not milk glass.
Flowers from the garden are scarce as "hen's teeth".
But I found a few!
International's Stratford sterling.
A recap and we're out'ta here.
Now let's party here:
