Herb-y Thanksgiving: Garden Tea for Two


Happy Monday, Friends! Today I'm excited to be joining the Thanksgiving Tablescape blog hop hosted by Chloe at Celebrate and Decorate!  Since I'll be spending the holiday with my daughter's family, instead of a traditional Thanksgiving table, I've set a casual Thanksgiving tea in the garden celebrating my bounty of herbs...

Herbs are a staple in my Texas Hill Country garden. In addition to their culinary and aromatherapy benefits, they withstand the heat, are deer resistant, and I can enjoy most of them year-round.

Youngest Daughter gave me this pair of herb tea mugs several years ago.

Here's a closer peek of one of the mugs. Can you believe how well the fabric matches on these easy 3-step dish towel napkins?

Over the table I hung my upcycled plate sign.

Here, you can see how it looks hanging over the table. My white pitchers are not Rae Dunn pieces. Have you tried this thrifty tip to make your own?

These mini herb plates were a clearance find years ago from World Market.

Now to add some tasty treats--some with gold sugar crystals...

  1. Cecilia, this table is so true to who you are, and I love it! Your daughter obviously knows you well in gifting you the thoughtful teacups. Yes, what a perfect match the towel napkins are, and you had me fooled with the Rae Dunn look alikes. Very creative!

  2. You have been so blessed to find so many matching herb-y pieces! Love those tea cups from your daughter and yes the match the towel perfectly. Such a cozy and warm setting to enjoy a cup of tea with a friend. I love the pops of yellow, especially that adorable tablecloth.

  3. Oh how I love your vintage tablecloth and outdoor patio furniture. Your herb-themed tablescape goes beautifully with these pieces. The herb plates and napkin are a match made in heaven. I love the uniqueness of these pieces and you have a beautiful way of putting them all together to bring out the beauty of all of the vintage pieces. You bring new life to pieces that might have been forgotten long ago. I love the yellow rooster which go so well with your tablecloth. So lovely to have it all outdoors. Happy Thanksgiving, Cecilia.

  5. Cecilia, what a sweet, intimate setting to count one's blessing this time of year! That includes enjoying time with a special friend, or my one and only. Sometimes, I need to be reminded to make an effort to set a special table for just the two of us. Your lovely tablescape reminded me to do so. Thanks!

  11. Cecilia this is so fun! I think you know how much I love herbs too! We had our first frost which ended my 6 month love affair with bountiful basil, but the rosemary is going strong and should last unless we have a particularly bad winter with a lot of freezing. Your outdoor setting is just charming as are all your little dishes and vintage touches.

    I hope you you have a blessed Thanksgiving with your family!

  13. Cecilia, having a lovely tea outdoors is a wonderful idea for Thanksgiving. Incorporating herbs into the menu and the decor is a wonderful idea. Have you ever been to the Fredericksburg Herb Farm? It’s one of my favorite places to eat and stroll. Love your hanging plate.

  16. Cecilia, your tea table for two is adorable. It got me thinking how nice it would be to slip away for a quiet cup of tea and some goodies during the hectic holiday season. Those tea mugs with matching saucers are adorable. Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family. Enjoy!
