Vintage Patriotic Garden Tea Party for Two


Happy Tuesday, Friends! Today I'm joining some talented blogger friends for the Patriotic Tablescape Hop hosted by Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate and Andrea at Design Morsels...

Are you hopping over after visiting Mary from Home Is Where The Boat Is? She creates the loveliest tablescapes! If you read my pallet picnic post or follow me on Instagram, you know that I have been dealing with the aftermath of storm damage that wreaked havoc on my lovely garden. Fortunately, I styled and photographed my vintage patriotic tea party in my garden gazebo, while it was still surrounded by lush greenery. I started with a crisp vintage white tablecloth...

Next, I layered vintage Liberty Blue dishes with the red and white cherry plates...

...I scored before the pandemic, along with the little cherry teapot--it was the inspiration for my patriotic tea party.

  3. Cecilia, Your tablecloth is beautiful. I love that you showed it's detailing. So pretty. You did well scoring the cherry teapot and red and white cherry plates. I also love Liberty Blue plates. I gave my sister my plates with historic scenes in red. I might want to borrow them back for a photo op.
    Your dessert is very inviting. I love your pleasant spot for a tea party and am so sorry you had storm damage.
    Wishing you a happy and safe 4th of July. Nice blog hopping with you again.❤️πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’™

  6. Oh, that dessert was so pretty (I'm still on antibiotics and mostly clear liquid diet for the diverticulitis! I'd eat the design off the plate about now!). Your RW&B combo is so pretty. That corner of your garden looks so restful and serene. I tried doing a bit of yardwork in the shade this a.m. and was pestered by a horsefly and a hornet; that NEVER happens in blogland! I quit!

  8. Cecilia, how lovely your table is set in the gazebo. I am so sorry storms wreaked havoc on your garden. Although it has not been storms, a week of nearly non stop rain has stunted my vegetables and zinnias. That tea pot is so perfect! You must use it to style a President's Day table next February! Your transfer ware, also is the perfect choice for the 4th of July and now I would like some of that shortcake!! Thank you for hopping with us!

  12. Cecilia, what a beautiful little table setting on your red bistro set in your secret garden space. It's a small blessing that you were able to prepare this in advance. The cherry themed tea service and plates are simply adorable. I knew when you shared them as finds they'd be featured in this patriotic theme. Love the crisp, white vintage tablecloth. There's always a tender spot in my vintage-loving heart when I see the cherished linens from the past being used.

    I am so sorry your space was disrupted, and I have (and will continue) to pray for you. How is the recovery coming along? With TX heat, it wouldn't surprise me if it's fall before you see a satisfying cleanup.

It is so adorable and endearing. The berry shortcake looks sooooo delicioussssss!!!! I am craving one right now. The rosy posey is so beautiful wrapped in lace. So loved by all!

  15. Oh Cecelia, how I would love to have a seat at this beautiful setting! Everything looks so pretty for your patriotic tea party. That vintage tablecloth is stunning, and I am swooning over that sweet teapot. The shortcake looks most scrumptious, and the roses are the perfect finishing touch! It is always so much fun hopping with you!
