Sisters’ Birthday Teacups


Tea Cup Tuesday, is co-hosted by Martha at Martha’s Favorites and Terri at Artful Affirmations.
Tea Party Tuesday is hosted by Trish at Sweetology. Please visit each of these lovely ladies for their fun Tuesday events.

I have three sisters and we have a sisters club, established in 2003 during the weekend celebration for our mother’s 85th birthday.


We gift each other throughout the year with a variety of lovely items, books, frames, tops, inspirational cards, tree ornaments, magazine subscription, etc. Most of the time the same gift is given to all four, though with some variety relating to each one’s favorite color (blue, purple, green and yellow) or some other personal preference.

One of the gifts I gave was the birthday month cup from Royal Albert’s Flower of the Month series. Each month has a beautiful flower gracing the teacup and saucer. My birthday was a couple week before last and here is my August cup and saucer: The flower is the Poppy:







One sister was born on Christmas Day so her cup is the December one, depicting the Christmas Rose.



I found full-size and miniature cups and saucers for both August and December:




I am still seeking the January (Snowdrops) and February(Violets) mini cups for my other two sisters.



Do you have a flower-of-the-month cup for your birthday month?

Having a "sisters club" is a great idea. The August and December teacups are very pretty. I have a Sutherland April cup, but oddly enough it does not have Sweet Peas, but something that looks like Iris.

I have two sisters, and I would love to do the same thing you and your sisters are doing, it sounds fabulous! Your month tea cups are beautiful. I have the "June" cup of the series, and I think it is so pretty.
Thank you so much for sharing with us.
Hugs,
Terri
