Taking Tea

What comes to mind when you see this powdery blue colour?

Wedgwood? It’s a brand that’s been around for 250 years and is well known for it’s powder blue and white plates and trinket boxes.

I had the pleasure of taking tea with Lord Wedgwood yesterday……along with about 40 other people.

The Country Trader

We were gathered at The Country Trader at Waterloo for cucumber sandwiches, lemon tarts and champagne to hear Lord Wedgwood, the seventh-generation descendant of Wedgwood’s founder, Josiah Wedgwood.

The new range of exquisite works of art, celebrates the company’s 250th year and shows that whilst maintaining it’s classical roots, the pieces can sit comfortably in the contemporary home.

Pieces like the Palladian Vase which is a crystal vase with black jasper lid.

Lord Wedgwood also announced that Designer Rugs will be releasing a range of Wedgwood inspired rugs. Again, these classical pieces would suit the floors of many homes. And I love the colours in this Renaissance rug.

Wedgwood Renaissance Gold Rug

This rug is taken from the dinner set that has been released with the 250th anniversary collection is just beautiful. The antique table at The Country Trader looked resplendent with this elegant setting.

Makes me want to invite a bunch of friends over and cook up a storm!

  1. Oh my goodness the Renaissance Set is divine! Sounds like you had a lovely afternoon Jennifer.

  2. I absolutely love this blue renaissance collection! How would you say it looks with the silver? I’m wondering if I would be able to use it with my silver pieces.

  3. I think it would be gorgeous with silver or gold. You can’t go past a bit of metallics to add some luxe to an already exquisite setting.
