This oh-so-pretty teacup and saucer from Wedgwood’s beautiful Harlequin collection, celebrating “the heritage of decorated English teasets; embracing both classical designs and the more whimsical ones,” would be a fine addition to any tea-lover’s teaset. As with any Wedgwood or bone china product though, this will set you back a bit. But why not treat yourself?

Pinterest is fantastic for gaining inspiration for all sorts of things. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is swiftly approaching and I thought it would be a great idea to bring together all of the best Jubilee ideas I’ve come across there and put them in one place. So whether it’s ideas for typically-British afternoon tea, cupcake designs or some inventive ways of including regally-styled cakes into your Jubilee celebrations, look no further! Oh and Tea and Cake is on Pinterest too, please do follow
There aren’t many things that are more quintessentially British than a bright red, Royal Mail post box. Whittard has used this national emblem in a new teapot design, as part of their latest collection of teapots to celebrate the Jubilee year. I love it. I’m sure it would fit well into Teapot Island’s collection too.
