If I could choose a place to set a table at StoneGable it would be on the back corner of our wrap around porch. It’s cozy and small with such a beautiful view. I dug out one of my vintage tea sets and set a pretty little table. A little bit formal and very sweet! Let’s linger over a great cup of tea and a few scrumptious nibbles. Come ’round to the back porch and join me!
Episode #54 of Decorating Tips And Tricks is about SETTING A SUMMER TABLE. Kelly, Anita and I LOVE dishes and setting tables. We are dishing about how to create beautiful summer tables and sharing our best tips!
Today let’s meet at the back corner of my wrap around porch for a little tea and conversation!
The table is set with one of my favorite vintage finds. I particularly like the pretty luster of this soft lemony tea set. And the thin black rims that accent them! They remind me of something my grandmother owned.
The back corner of my porch is shaded until mid afternoon and overlooks the farm beyond our property! A perfect place to have a spot of tea!
The dishes were just begging to be set on a crisp white tablecloth!
The tea set is paired with stylized square plates and black and white napkins!
I love to double napkins. They are often so overlooked! But wonderful cloth napkins are one of the joys of setting a pretty table.
Make sure you have at least one set of monogrammed napkins. They will quickly become your very favorites!
The centerpiece is a container of potted yellow begonias and creeping Jenny. So easy peasy!
A warm summer afternoon with a slight breeze is the perfect way to take tea!
Now, one lumps or two?
