A pretty cup and tea pot, enhanced by the addition of the Rose and petals.
Not too sure about the glass, I can see why the Lemons (Lemon Tea ? ) but the glass (to me ) looks slightly out of context, I think the Lemons would have been better without it.
The bg looks nice and even but I think you need to consider a 'base' for your subjects, all one colour makes them look as though they are perhaps floating in the darkness ( If that was your intention then just ignore me Blush ) You could use a pretty cloth or even a table top as your base just to give the subjects something to rest on.
If you use a diffuser ( an old net curtain or some tissue paper would do it ) against your light source then some of the highlights on reflective surfaces would be reduced and softened.
Exposure looks good but your ISO looks a little high your subjects are'nt moving so you could reduce it down, yes ok it would increase your exposure time (and you would need to use a tripod) but it looks like you were indoors so that's not critical and there would be less chance of introducing any noise in your image...all I can see is possibly a 'hot' pixel just above the cup.
Well done, some thought has gone into your composition.
I know you didn't particularly ask for critique but I do like your idea and thought my thoughts might help you on your way, forgive me if that is not so.

Thanks Janet for your words of advice, I do appreciate them. The bg under the object was supposed to be slightly lighter, but think it's not so. Next time I'll provide something different. I used a tripod and iso 650 was not a problem to me, it doesn't look particulary grany, but you can always do better.I'm not sure the one you spotted is a hot pixel, maybe only dust, I didn't realized but I'll check it out. Thanks again for spending your time on my photo.
