I received this swan teapot for Christmas 2011. Now I'm on a mission to turn it into a tea set by buying a tea tray, sugar bowl, creamer and half a dozen cups and saucers that go with it. And I also need to learn to make tea properly, as opposed to thowing a tea bag in hot water, Canadian-style. I think my best bet for getting a swan tea tray is to keep an eye out for a secondhand wooden tray I can paint with a swan motif, but I haven't found the other items yet. Super Shoppers of MeFi, what items can you suggest that will be perfect for my swan tea set?

I have a set of enamel/china tea cups, the sort you see in Chinese restaurants. I want to paint them gold (or make them gold in some way). What sort of paint/covering/etc would I use?

My housemate wants to drink from charming vintage teacups. Unfortunately, so does everyone else in East London, so round here they tend to only show up in cutesy-hipster shops at ridiculously inflated prices. Is there anywhere in London where one can still find them without the trend premium? [more inside]
