these three things are a given. . .
food, laughter and prayer!
To honor my guest,
I set a simplistic Garden themed tablescape!
I began with a vintage white damask tablecloth and
orange scalloped floral place mats,
then I added my everyday white porcelain dinnerware
and everyday Oneida flatware.
Wanting to keep this tablescape totally feminine,
I used an ecru linen gauze topper with embroidery
as an overlay to accent the centerpiece.
Everyday stemware served as our water goblets
and my rose etched crystal for a 'party' refreshment!
Using a triple napkin folding technique from Susan @
Between Naps On The Porch, gave a decorative touch
while providing the menu to also become a place card!
Placing the napkin atop the dinnerware,
balances the color palette around the table.
Grouping together newly purchased decorative urns
with a cauliflower tea pot from Nell Hill's
made a unique centerpiece.
Two individual white scalloped bud vases
filled with Gingersnap and Creamy Ivory Rose buds
with stems of Purple Salvia from On Crooked Creek's Gardens
extended the centerpiece with a touch of added color.

Dessert was served
using my Bavarian china dessert plates
with matching cups and saucers.
Following our lunch,
we gathered in the upper level Living Room
and enjoyed each others company.
Next post, I 'll be sharing recipes from A Garden Tour Tea Menu
which will showcase several fresh herbs
from The Herb Garden!
Until next time. . .
