    Well, you are a gal after my own heart! I love and collect picnic baskets. goth wicker and tin. Your picnic tea is absolutely darling! I also have a weakness for enamelware. Isn’t that teapot the cutest thing ever? I adore vintage quilts and your pillows are just so sweet! I planned on sharing a Memorial Day tea on Saturday with the link party. It will not be nearly as fabulous as this! 🙂

  4. Lora, what a beautiful picnic! Your vintage baskets and linens set the ambiance for a lovely afternoon picnic. I really enjoyed my time spent at your fun picnic. It has been a pleasure blog hopping with you!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Pam! Glad you joined in on the virtual picnic!

    2. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Pam! Always fun to meet fellow vintage and beauty lovers!

  5. Your picnic setting is so sweet! I remember having picnics spread out on blankets with the ladies digging sandwiches and treats out of the baskets. My mother usually packed standard, hearty lunches but my grandmother could be counted on to have a can of tasty sweets that were the perfect way to end the lunch. We often stopped for picnics on out drive to visit my grandparents. The place of choice was often a church yard since it would often have a mowed lawn and was a public place. I am getting a little older now and sitting on the ground doesn’t seem like such a good choice. It takes a long time to get back up now! lol
    Thank you for sharing all your pretty decorations and ideas and the wonderful memories. 🙂

      Oh, how I love all your memories, Auntie Em! Those are the Norman Rockwell-type memories I dream of when I create these types of scenes!

  6. This looks like so much fun I want to join in right now 🙂 Pinned. Thanks for sharing on To Grandma’s House We Go!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for pinning, Chas!

  7. Oh I love how you wrote out the titles for each party post! I am going to borrow that idea! Fabulous!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Amber! That was my sister’s idea after the last one; she said, “I want to know what they’re about!”

  8. Lora this is just too fun! I love vintage picnic baskets, and all your vintage details! Sharing how to make sun tea is such a fun and creative addition to our hop! Your picnic is like a step back in time, and it was perfect to incorporate an American theme so close to Memorial Day for this blog hop. It has been blast having you along! I will be returning to this post to pin so many of the wonderful ideas! Thank you for joining us for tea and roses!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Amber! It was so much fun! Thanks for inviting me to be a part of the hop!

  9. Your Summertime picnic is photographed so beautifully! Love all of the vintage touches! I could go for a cuppa of tea right now from your party! I enjoyed “having tea” with you!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks for your sweet compliment, Angelina! Extra special coming from you, since your photography is stunning! And yes, iced tea was definitely a welcome here today too…and the next couple of 90 degree days we’re supposed to have!

  10. Oh my goodness – this is absolutely amazing! What a wonderful idea to combine a tea party and picnic to enjoy the late spring weather! And the patriotic touches are perfect with Memorial Day right around the corner! You hit the ball out of the park with this one! 🙂 So happy to be part of the blog hop with you!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks so much, Michelle! And thanks for getting our hop off to a wonderful start!

  11. What an absolutely enchanting picnic. It is perfect for Memorial Day. This guest would also like a chicken to sit on her lap. I’ve borrowed one of your images to use on social media today. May you have sunshine and joy!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura! I borrowed one of yours, too, so we’re even! The chickens always want to be near me, but don’t really want to cuddle much;)

  12. Lora, can I just say the chickens at the picnic made me giggle. This is a great idea, your vintage cards, and ribbon embellishments on the picnic baskets are lovely. You created a lovely picnic scene to be enjoyed with a sip and a bite of something yummy. I just made some iced tea the other day for a birthday brunch for my daughter and her family. It is the official drink of summer at our home. It’s a pleasure to be part of the tea and roses blog hop with you. Hugs!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Katherine! I was very happy when “the girls” decided they wanted to jump in some pics;)

  13. Lora, what a delightful picnic! I love every vintage detail–especially your stacked picnic baskets! So fun to be participating in the blog hop with you! Blessings, Cecilia @ My Thrift Store Addiction

      Thanks, Cecilia! Such a fun day of pretty inspiration!

      1. Thanks for sharing your charming picnic at Vintage Charm–pinned!

  14. Lora, this is the cutest most inviting picnic ever! Your collections of linens and picnic baskets make me want to run out and start collecting my own! I love it all!

      Thanks, Stacey! I wish more people would still enjoy real linens!
