Flower Fairies in the Garden Summer Tablescape

Happy Tuesday, Friends! Today I'm delighted to join my talented tablescaping friends for the Summer Tablescape blog hop hosted by my dear friend, Rita from Panoply. Step into my garden for a enchanting setting featuring flower fairies

If you hopped over after visiting Ricki Jill from the Bookish Dilletante, isn't her red, white, and blue table setting charming?  It is H-O-T in Texas, but we can visit in the morning when the temperature is pleasant and the birds are singing! If you love honeysuckle as much as I do, I recently shared a few posts to celebrate the nostalgic bloom: a fragrant floral luminary and my recipe for delicious simple syrup

Since flowers always inspire me, it's only natural that this sweet flower fairy book served as the inspiration for my summer table.

It's been just a little over four years since the devastating storm that took down several trees in my garden. It has definitely been an adjustment. Fortunately many of the flowers that appeared to be goners that summer have since returned. I've also been leaning into meadowscaping by embracing the various wildflowers that can withstand the full sun in most of the garden. If you're from Texas, you know that plant labels that recommend "full sun" don't always apply to full Texas sun! 😉

I gathered garden blooms to create a simple arrangement for my watering can centerpiece.

I shopped thrifted colllections from my home to create this lovely table setting and it's always a pleasure when I can use what I have on hand.

Here's a few of the fairies that are joining us today. Maybe we'll encounter more among the flowers--who knows?

  3. Cecelia, you would never know you were in Texas from your charming setting. I love your use of a watering can for flowers. It is perfect for a summer table. The fairies are sweet just as the macrons. I would happily indulge one of those. It is always a treat to hop with you! Happy Summer!

  7. It's so nice to see how far things have come since the storm. recovering from something like that is not easy. I loved the fairy theme. The Cecily Barker book is delightful. My husband has gifted me with several and her attention to detail in creating her flower fairies is really amazing.. Your green is lovely and I loved the use of flowers in your tablescape.

  11. Cecilia, what a lovely fairy tablescape. First, I loved your floral centerpiece from your watering can. The flowers are as lovely and delicate as the fairies. Plus, I love your choice of light green and pink. Two perfect color combinations. Your vine placements are a great choice since they are delicate and as sweet as the florals. The jadeite plates have always been my favorite. The macroons are as pretty as delicious. I would love to learn to make my own. I can only imagine the lovely fragrance coming from your honeysuckle and rose plants. Sweet. Happy Summer.

  12. How pretty! I love the flowers, the macaroons and those darling fairies. What a perfect place for a summer snack!

  13. Oh I LOVE those colors Cecilia! And your centerpiece is gorgeous! They way you’ve offset the flowers in the oval of the watering can handle is masterful! Is that rosemary I see in there? It must smell wonderful – floral and herbal – perfect at the table! Your fairies are darling, and so fun having the book there to glance through while you’re enjoying your macarons. Love the wood-slice coasters and the berry ice cubes. The drinks look so cool and refreshing. You’ve tied everything together beautifully – what a fabulous summer table!

  14. Cecelia, your fairy themed table set in the garden is perfect! I would so love to be a guest at this beautiful table admiring your gorgeous flower garden. The spritzer and macarons look delicious. Living in Oklahoma, I understand the “full sun” problem. Our full sun can often cook sun loving flowers. It has been such a treat to join you on this hop. Happy summer! Shannon@Belle Bleu Interiors

  15. Cecilia, even though Texas gets so hot so quickly, your garden tea looks very inviting with the cloud cover, a cool spritzer, and the meadow flowers surrounding! I'm so happy you're garden is recovering and that you are adjusting without all the trees. I think if I had a shade garden, I would have to necessarily learn an entirely new style of gardening! Although I know different shade-loving plants, I have absolutely no shade to speak of since my next door neighbor's contractor removed ALL of his landscaping last year.
    Thank you for joining the summer tablescape blog hop. I look forward to your spritzer details. Happy summer!

  16. Cecilia, your summer table is truly delightful! It feels like a fairy setting for sure. The sweet blooms in the watercan make the perfect centerpiece, and the way you added the sprig and petite blooms beside the flatware is charming. The little fairy offering the macaroons made me smile. I so enjoyed your beautiful photos! Happy Summer!

  18. What a darling table Cecilia! The photo with the honeysuckle caught my eye immediately. The scent is heavenly. I love your fairy themed table, and your crockery is my favourite combination of colours. Soft green and pink! The watering can filled with garden flowers is so pretty, and so perfect for your table! Your water glasses look so refreshing. I have always thought that fairies are quite enchanting, and your table setting, amongst your gardens is definitely enchanting! Happy to be hopping with you :)

  19. Oh Cecilia ~ your fairies are PRECIOUS!! My daughter and I have several fairy books and we just love them! Your table is enchanting!! I particularly love the cutout fairies flitting around the setting! So charming!! Did you photocopy them or draw them? Either way - they add the perfect touch!! I'm so sorry about the loss of your trees but I'm so happy you are finding new ways to have flowers in your garden. Thank you for giving us a seat at your table!! Hugs ~ Jennifer

  20. Cecilia, this is charmingly whimsical, with its theme of fairies! They bring a sweetly feminine vibe to a table shared with friends. I love that used a watering can as a vase for the flowers in pretty shades of pink, yellow and white. There's just the right amount of flowers so that they seem to float above your table. Hope you have a wonderful summer!
