In Everything Give Thanks - Garden Tea for Two

Happy Tuesday, Friends! I'm so glad you could join us for the Thanksgiving Tablescape blog hop featuring 18 bloggers and hosted by Rita at Panoply! Let's take a stroll out to my garden where I've set a sweet table for two...

If you hopped over after visiting Ann from At the Corner of Plaid & Paisley, welcome! Pull up a chair to my table. Would you prefer coffee or tea?

An intimate garden tea creates the perfect place for counting your blessings, taking a peaceful pause from cooking, or celebrating a friendship. Even if you're hosting a large family dinner or the weather doesn't permit an outdoor setting, you may enjoy bringing the outdoors inside for your table.

After an extremely dry summer and some long-awaited soaking showers in September, I've been enjoying late garden bloomers. I hung this simple sign as a reminder of one of my favorite Bible verses.

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18

To set my table, I started with a neutral cotton tablecloth featuring a grain sack stripe border.

You may remember the sneak peek of my vintage plate stack if you saw my dressed-up dollar store pumpkin place cards.

Lamb's ear, rosemary, and wildflowers were gathered from the garden to accent nature's bounty...

  7. Tea is my absolute favorite beverage and a Thanksgiving tea table set in the garden is the perfect setting. So nice that you were able to use flowers and herbs from your garden to complete the setting. The blue is quite striking with the neutral background allowing the guests to relax. Happy Thanksgiving!

  9. I made 7 batches of cookies for our church bazaar today (Then put them in the freezer at church!). Seeing your table set for tea--and a needed break--really appealed to me! I love the carpet of floors and how well the flowers all toned together so well!

  10. A quiet interval, tucked away in a lovely garden spot looks and sounds wonderful! Add pretty accents and soothing tea and it's just about perfect! May those of us who get a bit frazzled getting ready for a holiday recreate a place such as this. Thank you for the idea!

  11. Cecilia, I love Friendly Village by Johnson Brothers, it spans the seasons from fall to winter and is perfect for your garden table. What a wonderful spot to enjoy the beauty and stop and smell the rosemary. ๐Ÿ˜Š As always it’s a treat to join you at the table and hop with you again. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving ♥

  12. Cecilia your table for two is so inviting. I love the colors and your setting is so peaceful. I would love to live close enough to pop over for tea and conversation. Your yellow chairs are a perfect duo with your blue cloth and accents. Pears are a;sp a favorite of mine. And the Bible verse is one I recite daily. ...yes, even when I was ill, because God says in ALL things give thanks...not just the good and happy things. Have a great Thanksgiving my friend.

  19. Cecilia, what a tranquil table and beautiful surroundings to enjoy the holiday. I love the use of a neutral tablecloth that really makes the blue tea pot and plates pop. It is a perfect spot to enjoy your lovely garden, appreciate nature and give thanks for many blessings. Your yellow chairs, pears and bright and cheerful flowers adds such energy and contrast to the tranquil blue. So beautiful. Enjoy this place of serenity for the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving.

  21. Dinner for two in the garden! Definitely something to be thankful for! Especially as I watch the snow fall today! Your teapot with the brightly coloured blooms is so pretty, and I love the lambs ear! The little velvet pumpkins topped with succulents are so cute! I have pinned the ginger pear bread recipe, it sounds so yummy!

  22. What a lovely table to sit and relax at. We've already had snow this year, so eating outside will be impossible. But one can dream. I love that you mixed lambs' ear plus rosemary into the table setting. I just keep forgetting that I have a huge patch of it outside :)

    Happy Thanksgiving blessing to you sweet lady,
    Rachelle
