Slightly overhead front view of fabrics in collection with tea accoutrements

“My china hutch holds a small collection of tea cups. They are of varying sizes and colors, some with intricate floral designs and some with simple patterns. Each one is a little memorial to a special person. I inherited these tea cups from both of my grandmas and my husband’s grandma after they passed away and they hold memories of each woman. My Grandma Bea, the namesake of this collection, was always as busy as her name implied. She loved to have people over for a visit or a meal and you never left her house hungry. This collection is a tribute to generous hospitality and genuine sweetness because those are gifts that remain long after we’ve gone.”

The Tea with Bea collection brings together those decorative tea cups, along with prairie wildflowers and floral prints. There’s also a subtle nod to bees and honeycomb in the coordinates. The color palette is a sophisticated mix of soft muted colors offset by bold charcoal.
