Vintage crockery finds

This weekend we are having an early Mother's Day meal, my eldest is coming up from London and obviously my mum is coming over. This year I wanted to do something alittle different so I've been searching through the charity shops and I found a beautiful pink Pyrex vintage casserole dish (£1.75) and that started the theme. I had a few cups and saucers but I managed to find odd plates etc and now the table looks quite pretty. The flowers also haven't gone up in price in the shops which they will for the actual Mother's Day so I was able to buy quite a few. It's not all pink there's soft greens and blues and red too. But nothing matches which I l love. The cake stand is borrowed from a friend, not sure if it can be seen in the photos as they were a bit cropped.
The most I spent was a fine bone china cup and saucer for £5 but everything else was well under that. It just goes to show you don't have the break the bank. I hope all you mothers out there have a lovely day whenever you are celebrating.
