    I’m so jealous of your pink depression glass tableware! 😉 So happy you were blessed with these! Love the tablesetting, and those leaves for ‘placemats’… genius! So glad you shared your three posts at Tuesday Turn About, Lora! Always love having you!

      Thanks, Julie! I was telling my daughter about how you came up with the “Turn About” name; she’s a Jane Austin lover;) She just picked up a whole set of books at a garage sale and was as pleased as punch!

  2. I really love this al fresco dining scene! That peony arrangement in the bundt pan is so genius. What a delight for your guests…especially those like me who need dark chocolate following a meal. 😉 Thanks for sharing at Tuesday Turn About!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, there are those chocolate lovers out there that just need that “closure” after a good meal;) Thanks, Crissy!

      Wonderful:) Thanks, Amber!

  3. First thing i thought when i saw the first picture was I LOVE THE COPPER!
    I have no copper pieces to be honest, have always looked for metal and silver type things but that may have to change lol.
    Cant believe you found those keys at home depot! and before i got to the end of your post all i could think of was what a great little setting for sun dresses and a sandwich lunch with various lemonades.

      Copper is all the rage right now, Sandra. It’s never been my thing, but of course I am swayed by fashion styles. I love to combine current trends with vintage, so as to not be too antique-store-ish;) The keys were actually from Michaels, if you’re interested. Think I may have my eye out for more copper pieces!

      1. WHO KNEW
        I KNOW GOLDS AND SILVERS TOGETHER WERE HIP BUT REGARDLESS I’M NOT DOING GOLD ANYTHING LOL

        DUNNO WHY I EQUATED BIG BOX WITH HOME DEPOT LOL, I WONDER IF OUR CANADIAN MICHEAL’S HAVE THE KEYS. I WAS LOOKING FOR SOME INEXPENSIVE ONES TO HANG IN 2 GLASSLESS FRAMES EARLIER IN THE YEAR, NOT SURE NOW THAT THEY ARE HUNG.

          Sandra, They had gold and silver; I had to dig for the couple copper ones. And yes, I’m having a hard time getting into the swing of things with gold; still remembering everything brass from the 80’s:(

  4. Lora, I love every pretty pink detail! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! Pinned!

      Thanks, Cecilia!

  5. I love this. The glassware reminded me of my grandmother and the peonies reminded me of my mother – although I was thinking that maybe they should have reminded me of my grandmother too, as she left them planted on the farm that I grew up on when they sold the place to my parents and moved to town to retire. I love peonies. My brother still lives on the farm and I stopped by when we went to the cemetery on memorial day. The peonies were in full bloom and so beautiful. Thank you for sharing at To Grandma’s House We Go.

      I’m glad it brought back fond memories, Amy! I was actually reminded how my brother used to bike ride over my mom’s peonies because he hated how the ants crawled all over the buds!

  6. Your tablescape was just beautiful. I can appreciate how much time and thought you put into it. Your rhubarb crunch looks delish (and I’m not THAT fond of rhubarb!). Makes me want to collect some pink glass (I have Marigold dishes in Bouquet and Lattice aka Normandy).

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Kathy! I’m dreaming of a table with all the depression glass colors…wouldn’t that be pretty?

  7. I LOVE LOVE LOVE how you showcased your gorgeous pink dishware! Fantastic!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, friend!I do love me some pink;)

  8. What a lovely table you set! I poured over each detail and hope that you had some guests come over to do the same. Your peonies were beautiful and I know that you loved being able to use them on this pretty table.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      My sweet family enjoyed the lovely summer night setting, Paula…especially the dessert! Candlelight on a summer’s eve makes everything special;)

  9. Lora, you are such an inspiration, holy banana cakes (I mean rhubarb crunch) 😉 Your presentation is stunning and the ideas you have shared all in one patio party are just awesome. You’ve done such a beautiful job. What time’s the party? I’ll bring the punch! 🙂

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You’re too sweet, Sheila! Thanks for the compliment! Yes, you bring your punch…with the ladle, of course;)

  10. Your display has me wanting to go out in search of a full set of pink depression ware!! You did a Beautiful job! And your dessert pic is making me HUNGRY 🙂
    Hugs,
    Karin

      Thanks, Karin! Hope you find some; it’s taken me years (at a price I’m willing to pay;)

  11. This is just so completely charming with so many things to love!!! Hmmm, looks like I need to get myself to some church sales, that glass is so stunning paired with your peonies = perfection! I can’t wait to see your DIY tutorial on those vintage fence lanterns, so clever!!!
