      Thanks, Marie! I love it when my boys grown out of their jeans;)

  2. Hi Lora!
    Your table setting is lovely. I love the classic blue and white colors in the outdoor setting. Using jean pockets to hold the napkin and utensils is such a cute idea. My favorite are those fiddleheads – so unique, but beautiful as your centerpiece. Thanks for sharing at Homestyle Gathering!

      I don’t usually use denim blue and white, but it was fun to do something different.

  4. Lora,

      Thankyou, Judith! There’s just something so classic about blue and white; it never grows old or out of fashion!

  5. What a lovely tea party! I love any outdoor celebration, and although this might be simple, rather than grand, it is beautiful! I love all of the blue and white and the muffins! Oh, those are bursting with blueberries! Happy Mother’s Day!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’ve been enjoying those muffins all week, Chloe;)

  6. Lora, love the blue and white ~ always a classic. The denim pockets for the silverware is a darling idea. The tarnished silver tea pot adds a nostalgic, vintage feel. The outdoor setting looks so inviting. The stacks of blue dishes are casual, yet so pretty. Love seeing what you create. Happy Mother’s Day.

  7. I love your blue and white casual theme for your Mother’s Day tea party! I love the idea of using a jean pocket for silverware. I love your blue and white china and the blue glass! So pretty! The whole setting is perfect!

      Thankyou, Amber! It’s always so fun to create these pretty visual stories:)

  10. There are so many sweet details that I know I’ll forget to mention them all. So I’ll just say that you had me at blue and white.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I know blue and white is your comfort zone, too, Carol! Thanks!

  11. Blue and white is one of my favorite color combinations, Lora! It always feels so warm and relaxed and your outdoor tea party setting is no exception. I’m all for being comfortable so I can completely appreciate the vintage napkins in the jean pocket. And don’t even get me started on the beautiful lid in the muffin basket – gah – you are THE BEST at those little details! Hugs and Happy Mother’s Day, CoCo

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I love how you and Cindy notice all those little details, CoCo! I know I’m in good company with this hop group;) Thanks for your kind words!

  12. Tea in the garden, how perfect. I adore your beautiful table setting and the denim cloth is fabulous. Those muffins are really calling my name, they look so good.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Marty! I have been enjoying them thoroughly;)

  13. I’m definitely a low-key Mother’s Day kind of mom, and what you have planned would work for me! I like it when things are kept simple and casual. Your table setting is really pretty, and WOW, that fiddlehead fern in the china – I LOVE that!!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I think it’s the first time I’ve used the fiddleheads like that…and think I’ll do it again! I’m loving that little ironstone tureen with the blue rose too; it just had to come home with me!Thx, Sheila!

  14. Lora, I love the idea of creating a little destination for your tea party with the trees in the background. So picturesque! Great idea using the fiddlehead fern for a centerpiece. That lush green is so pretty with your blue and white tablescape.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Fresh green just adds so much to the blue and white, doesn’t it? Especially when the sunbeams are shining so nicely;)

  15. Lora, I love your blue and white tea party. It’s such a lovely setting! Happy to be joining you for the tea party tour this week! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Cecilia! Can you believe I actually had to go out and buy a few dishes for this one? Who knew I didn’t really have any blue and white!

      1. You know I don’t have much in the way of blue and white either!
        Thanks for sharing your lovely Mother’s Day tea party at Vintage Charm!

        1. Lora Bloomquist says:

          I have a couple more dishes now…but who’s counting, right?

  16. What an adorable idea to use the jean pocket! Blue and white is always my favorite color combination and I just loved how you used it on your beautiful table!

  17. Gorgeous setting, Lora, love the denim pockets for the napkin and silverware, so adorable! That tureen filled with the fern is just amazing!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Debra! Yes, that tureen just called my name when I saw it on the thrift store shelf;) I held myself back from the matching teapot!

  18. What a beautiful table you set, Lora! My favorite thing is your centerpiece. I love how you used fiddleheads for this! I’ve never seen them used in a floral arrangement and they look beautiful. Your dishes are also pretty and your jean pocket holder for the silverware and note is a charming idea. I loved admiring every single picture in this post.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m glad you enjoyed it, Paula! I used the fiddleheads out of necessity, since I didn’t want to make a trip to the store. And there’s really not much else yet even green in my yard; way late spring here:(

  19. Marlene Stephenson says:

    Thank you just my kind of tea party. Pretty and relaxing, just visiting with people you care about.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Yes, Marlene…quiet and relaxing is my favorite!

  20. So cute. I love the denim pockets upcycled. Adorable. Your tablescape for tea is beautiful.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Katie! My son just said a pair of his jeans were too small, so of course I needed to cut them up;)

  21. Lora B! You are my new favorite blogger. I always get fun inspo from you. Something as simple as putting the blue and white lid in the basket of delicious looking muffins is adorable. Can we be besties? I wanna be besties.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I am honored, Cindy! I’d love to be besties with you! I think the lid in the basket was an idea that came from way too many years of devouring Victoria magazine pics! Ideas are kind of a disease for me…they just keep growing!

  22. Lora what a beautiful tablesetting. I love the jean pocket! What a great idea to use as a napkin, card and silverware holder. Awesome inspiration. Hope you have an awesome Mother’s Day!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Terrie! It was a fun scene to create;)

  23. What a beautiful tea party. Blue and white is such a classic pairing. The jean pocket napkin holder is truly darling.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura! I don’t usually do much classic blue and white, but it just felt comforting this time:)
