Retro artwork on a cute tea set

On the one hand, I love the colors and the cute 1950s artwork, and the "snack set" idea has always seemed eminently practical to me: you can keep your teacup on the same plate as your food, so you don't have to keep putting down your cup and saucer to take a bite of your tiny crustless sandwich. On the other hand, the idea of a couple of modern-day little girls sitting down to tea in the afternoon and dishing about their 4th-grade private-school classmate who just got an unfortunate haircut makes me want to throw things. Still, this is really cute. I think it would be a neat and gently humorous gift for a woman in her 50s.
