I wanted to buy a good 4-5 cup tea pot with the cups and saucers. And dessert plates to go with it. Anything else I need to add to the tea party assemble? Is it proper to have all in matching? I would like to have a hoge-poge of all different makers of Blue Willow designs such as Churchill, Dutchess, Japan-made, etc. I used to remember my mother have a whole china set of them and she got rid of them! They were beautiful and she had them since she got married I think. Not sure of the maker tho but will ask if she does remember them. I am planning on using the tea set for our Civil War reenactment for our private ladies tea party in our unit. Can you gossip in tea parties?
