How to Create a Beautiful Outdoor Tea Party

How to Create a Beautiful Outdoor Tea Party

Hello Friends!

I cannot believe what gorgeous weather we are having here in the Pacific Northwest in April. It’s been in the mid eighties! Unbelievable, right? I have been finding all kinds of excuses for getting to be outside and enjoy the sun. I’m having a tea party out in the garden, come along and I will show you how I created my outdoor tea party.

I love eating outdoors at a pretty table.

We have a lovely little area of the garden that has a dining area. You walk through a vine covered trellis, walk passsed a fountain along a stone path and on to the dining area. It has a white lattice trellis with vines growing upon it. Cathedral shaped mirrors are hung on the trellis and fern wreaths are hung on the mirrors. It makes for such a sweet spot for a tea party.

Isn’t this such a sweet setting for a tea party?

I started by using an April Cornell tablecloth. this one is not the exact one that I have, but it would be beautiful.

I layered a moss placemat, white dinner plate, vintage luncheon plate and salad plate. These floral salad tea party plates are so cute. They would be a great option if you wanted easy cleanup. I used a matching April Cornell cloth napkin. I tied a blue plaid ribbon around my silverware to make it more festive.

I put a wineglass and a pretty water glass at each setting.

A vintage silver wine bucket and a basket of flowers adds a lovely touch to the tea party setting.

If you have been around for any length of time, you know how much I love my vintage silver wine buckets. In this one I put a topiary in it and I tied a white ribbon around the stem. You know that I love cloches as well, I put a darling little birds nest on a vintage silver tray and covered it with a vintage cloche. And, of course, I added a little bird.
