Teacups - Every home should have some!

A tea cup is no longer just a tea cup nowadays. Yes, of course they are still used by the traditional tea drinkers, but for the non-tea drinkers (like me) and retro, vintage and teacup lovers, the teacup has a lot to offer! They can be used as decoration, candle holders, plant pots and cakes can be baked in them...

Strawberry Fool sell these gorgeous giant teacup planters on their website for £24.99. They are perfect for a lovely little house plant to brighten up the kitchen, or perfect for herbs and bulbs to grow on your patio or in your garden.

Tea Cup Cakes
Strawberry Fool also sell these lovely silicone teacup cupcake cases. They are £14.99 for a pack of four reusable silicone moulds. Perfect for delightful Tea Parties and making cupcakes a little bit more fun and elegant.

LittleDollFace made these gorgeous candles using vintage teacups. These make perfect Christmas, birthday and mothers day gifts, are really easy to make once all of the "ingredients" are bought. If you fancy giving it a go, House Beautiful on All About You have instructions here.Heart Shaped Teacup and Saucer - photo
