Garden Partition Idea – Tea Cups Garden Decor

Inspired by the old English tradition, this beautiful and captivating garden partition made up of tea cups invites us to take an English afternoon tea in a quiet garden atmosphere. Created by Jules Arthur and George Richardson from the British Landscape Association as a part of the ‘Good Tea, Right Kind’ garden (‘bon thé, bon genre’), it was installed to promote often ignored by contemporary landscapers native plants used to prepare herbal teas. Whatever the nobel ideas behind this partition design, consider it as an interesting and creative concept for your garden decor. With hundreds of tea cups on display, with flowers on the cups adding to tranquility of the atmosphere, this is a cool, captivating idea for tea lovers out there … Easily change the decor by changing only a few tea cups. Or for a more modern, urban look, go with the espresso coffee cups. Photo by Eric Sander.


And here’s another idea for your garden decor, inspired by igloo – build a cabana decorated with plant pots. The cues were taken from the ‘Last Igloolik’ installation by French architects Julien Lachal, Julie and Agathe Bernard Faure, displayed at the Chaumont-sur-Loire garden festival in France.
