I ordered this for my mother who lives on the mainland (I do not.) so I was pretty worried that it would be broken by the time, she got it. But I was thrilled to order it for her because she's just...what everyone pictures a mom to be: ADDICTED TO FLOWERS, PURPLE AND TEA! (lol!) So she got it in all the correct pieces. And she loved it. She was so excited b/c it was so different that she didn't want to use it. I refrained from commenting on it b/c I wanted to see it in person first. It is pretty sturdy but I wouldn't be too liberal with it. Most of the items on this website are craft pieces. With all craft pieces...its durable but lets be reasonable with it. You wouldn't make mac & cheese in the microwave with it. Its meant to be a gift so its small and personal. I do wish that there were other pieces that would go with it, like a maybe a desert plate and tray. or even if there were other colors/flowers available. Either way, I love this and she did also. I usually never know what to get for her but its the perfect mom gift.
Purchased as birthday gift.
This is a gift for a young couple getting married who i love. We share books and tea, and this is a perfect gift, in my mind. I hope they like it as much.
Excellent for teatime for 2! Teapot has holes before spout so large tea leaves don't go out into teacups. Got this for mother's day and I think it's an excellent gift.
