As this is the first 2015 Autumn Teacup Tuesday, I have chosen to feature a non-pastel teacup.
A deep dark rose is the main color. Not quite burgandy nor red. The rim has a ever-so slight scalloped edge trimmed in gold which then flows down the sides in a filigree design.
Center of cup and saucer is a traditional floral bouquet motif which displays nicely when serving tea.
