Lemons and Jadeite Summer Garden Tea for Two

Happy Tuesday Friends! Welcome to the Summer Tablescape Hop hosted by Rita at Panoply! I've styled my jadeite with fresh flowers, herbs, and lemons to create a sunny alfresco setting you can adapt for any summer table. If you love pairing natural decor with vintage dishes, join me for a summer garden tea for two...

Did you hop over after visiting sweet Sarah at Hyacinths for the Soul? I always love seeing her charming photographs. I'm so glad you're here! These cheerful lemon chargers and matching dish towel that I scored on sale at Hobby Lobby served as the inspiration for my little garden tea party.

You may remember the thrift store upcycle I'm using as a centerpiece.

I paired it with my yellow teapot and used the dish towel as a small runner.

Now for the fresh lemons--I shared these fragrant citrus herb mini bouquets as spring decor, but they are perfect for summer celebrations and hostess gifts! In fact, if you were here, I'd send you home with your own lemony bouquet!

I've seen several varieties of lovely lemon dishes, but I'm sure it won't come as a surprise that I went with my vintage jadeite!

I used my copper flatware and if you look closely, you'll notice my favorite lemon ginger tea.

Now all we need is dessert! Wouldn't Rita's individual honey lemon pound cakes be perfect, or how about some lavender chocolate brownies? Perhaps you prefer something different--what  treat would you bring to my lemon tea party?

  13. Cecilia, all I need to bring to your charming tableside is my lemon water, which is a year round constant for me. What a delight that HL had the lemon chargers and dish towel. I so love the lemon dishes and textiles that have been available in the past several years. The lemon design pairs perfectly with the jadeite, something you & I both have in common love. I tell you what - you bring the lavender brownies, and I'll bring the honey lemon cakelets, and we'll swap! What a nice time we'd have in your restored garden space. Thank you for sharing your sunshiny styling at the table!

  19. Cecilia, the new lemon plates go perfectly with your jadeite plates. The little lemons on the plates are so cute as is the lemon centerpiece. That yellow pitcher is lovely. Your setting looks so cool in this Texas heat wave.

  20. Cecilia, there is something to be said about the combination of lemons and jadeite.....a perfect match. I can't imagine one without the other. So summery and soothing and perfect for indoor or out. It always reminds me of summer luncheons with the neighbors. Everyone enjoys these summer time meals. Your tranquil and cheerful table leaves a lasting memory. Have a wonderful summer.
