Looking for inspiration to brighten up our new workspace with some spring flowers, I came across this gorgeous egg cup flower display. It’s gorgeous and so simple. As we run a tea company I thought it would be lovely to use some of my vintage tea cups instead of using just egg cups, a bit like the image below:

But using spring flowers – daffodils, bluebells, crocus – like this:

It struck me how lovely it would look in the centre of the kitchen table for a special Mothers’ Day afternoon tea or an Easter brunch. Often the simplest gifts are the most special. I’m sure if my Mum lived closer she’d love it! But as she doesn’t I’m treating her to afternoon tea at Liberty of London instead to say thank you for everything.

Have fun creating your tea cup flower arrangements. Don’t foget to save some cups to drink tea from too!
