Hello Spring Porch Tablescape

Thanks for sharing!

Spring has been absolutely beautiful! Our Knock-Out Roses have been so abundant this year with blooms. I absolutely adore spring and summer. I find it quite relaxing to just walk around the yard and look. 

In honor of the beautiful spring season and Mother's Day quickly approaching my friend ,Amber, from Follow the Yellow Brick Home organized the Spring Tea Party Blog Hop!

Being from the south, I adore the sweet tea in the summer! Most afternoons or evenings, I enjoy a cup of Earl Gray hot tea. There is just something relaxing about a cup of hot tea. If you are visiting from my sweet friend, Marty from A Stroll Thru Life, welcome so very much. Marty's home is always such a treat!

I welcome you to my Hello Spring Porch Tablescape.

I decorated the centerpiece with tea pots, but have my beautiful blue glasses ready for sweet tea.

My inspiration started with the simple printable that I made for each place setting.

screened porch

We live on the screened porch spring through fall! Unless there is a bad rain or too cool, we eat dinner almost every night on the porch. It's just so peaceful listening to the wildlife.

If you notice I took a walk on the wild side and really played with patterns. The patterns all have a common theme of blue and white with a little green, it still works nicely adding in the pinks with the flowers.

See the napkins? Those were made with Chalk Couture! Be sure to follow me on Facebook as I plan to do more LIVES creating with the products. They are transfers that can be used repeatedly with either the ink or chalk paste. So versatile!

lantern

With this being a round table, I decided to anchor the lantern in the center. I've had this lantern a few years and it's a favorite. I just checked and it is still in stock HERE!!

Then around the lantern, I added a couple of tea pots, flowers and pitchers.

You'll notice that I've used both real and faux flowers.

The little votives totally happened by accident. They are actually napkin rings and the candles dropped inside easily. It was another way to add more pattern in the same colorway.

The little bowls that I purchased a couple of year ago from Big Lots are holding a little gift for your guests. The adorable gingham gardening gloves and seed packets came from the Dollar Tree!

Can you see all the Knock-Out roses?

I've had the white wired string lights up for probably 8 years. They've been amazing! I love how they blend with the white trim. Here are 2 options HERE and HERE.

I must say that I love a cottage look. I've been drawn to English country gardens forever. This reminds me of just that!

The flowers, the patterns, the colors make me happy…..sorry for the photo overload!

And your cottage-style setting with blue and white and all the roses…my inner Laura Ashley is smiling;) Thanks for filling up my beauty tank!

  2. This is so pretty! I’m just loving your porch space and can see why you would spend so much time out there! Your tablescape is so pretty. I love the teapots as part of a centerpiece. The printables are so cute and I love how you put them and seeds in the teacups!

  3. Christy what a beautiful setting for a tea party! I loved all of your Spring touches and especially loved your printable! Thanks for sharing!

  4. No apologies for photo overload! Keep ’em coming! I love your blue-ti-ful tablescape and of course your whole porch. How creative to use the napkin rings as votive holders!

    The mixing of patterns is so English country and I just love it all. The tablecloth is just beautiful too.

    Thank you so much for joining the hop. Enjoy the rest of spring and summer on your gorgeous porch!

  5. Love, love, love this beautiful tablescape Christy! Blue and white are two of my favorite color combinations and I love how classic and sophisticated it looks on your outdoor table. It’s totally gorgeous. I hope your Mother’s Day is filled with lots of love, laughter and you feel celebrated all day! Hugs, CoCo

  6. Christy, you have a beautiful and sunny porch. What a great space to entertain and to relax in. That would definitely be my spot for reading and enjoying some icy tea. I love your pretty table set with the Blue Willow china. The pops of pink add a touch of romance and elegance.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you… It was fun joining you on this fun and inspiring “Spring Tea Blog Hop”..

  7. Ginny,
    I think the system is called Screen Tight. It has been in place for about 13 years. It’s upkeep and work, but definitely worth it to us to still feel outside, but keeping the bugs away. Happy spring, friend!

  8. What a lovely porch! Everything is charming! Happy to be joining you for the tea party hop this week. Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction

  9. Your tablescape is lovely, Christy! Adding the gloves, seed packets, and printable to each bowl really makes each place setting look special. You were super clever to discover that a napkin ring can become a tea light holder. I’m going to have to try that trick!

  10. Christy,
    With a beautiful screened-in porch like yours, I would eat out there every night, too. Your classical style makes everything inviting, truly a Southern home filled with charm.

    Have wonderful Mother’s Day next Sunday,

    Judith

  11. Your family is so fortunate to have such a lovely setting for outside dining. Your blue/white/green tablescape is so fresh and spring-y! Knock out roses are one of my faves, but ours in the MIdwest haven’t even started blooming, I’m looking forward to small bouquets soon, though. Everything is just beautiful!

  12. Your table is set perfectly for the occasion! Your porch is beautiful – everything is beautiful!! Love the blue and white plates!

  13. I love your blue and white theme mixed in with the pastel flowers. The seed packets in the tea cups is a really cute idea! It all looks so cozy and inviting on your porch.

  14. I love how you took a leap and mixed and matched your blue and white patterns. The entire table looks fantastic! And how awesome to be able to eat out there almost every night. Enjoy the rest of your spring!

  15. Oh Christy, what a gorgeous screen porch you have! I am sure it is a pleasure to have this space for entertaining! The table you set is so welcoming and lovely. You have done such a good job of mixing the patterns. Your printable is a sweet little addition to each place setting! It has been a joy to hop with you!

  16. Thanks for your response, Christy. Your screens are so light as to not even look like screens.
    Yes, it’s constant upkeep. I was simply wondering if there was another solution to the porch enclosure. Thanks again.

  17. Christy, love the blue patterns mixed together. I’m actually doing that in our master bedroom right now. The idea of the napkin rings used as candle holders is a brilliant idea. I really like the lantern in the center of your table. What a nice setting for a spring and summer dinner.

  18. Christy I could sit on your porch for hours. You set the perfect spring table. It is gorgeous! Happy Spring to you and hope you have an awesome Mother’s Day.

  19. I love your beautiful tablesetting, and mixing all the patterns is so fun and fresh. Your flowers are amazing, so pretty. I am in total envy also of your wonderful porch, it is amazing. I think I would live there all year round if possible.

  20. I can see why you spend so much time out on that porch because it’s just perfect! I would be out there all the time! Your table is beautiful and I love the way you used creative ways to decorate it. The napkins are so pretty and I love your napkin ring votive idea. So much inspiration!

  21. Thanks so much, Michelle !!! Dollar Tree really had several cute patterns for the gloves.

  22. Thanks so much, Laura! Yes…blue and white china is classic! I’ve had mine over 20 years and never grow tired of it.

  23. Thanks so much, Cindy! Yes, I was pleasantly surprised about the votives!!

  24. Hi, Ginny! Several of the photos show ceiling fans and we do use them! We are in the upstate of SC so we do get very hot in the summer. It is screened, and we love it. This time of the year and in the fall when the air conditioning is not running, we have all the French doors opened from the inside to the porch. Yes, we have pollen. I do 1 big porch clean in the spring and again in the fall. In between we sweep and spot clean as needed. Pollen in really bad until early May then really slacks off. Any outdoor space is going to be upkeep, just depends on your wants/needs. It the high heat of summer, we use it more in the mornings and evenings.

  25. Is your porch enclosed with glass or plexiglass? How is the heat factor in the summer? I don’t see if you have an overhead fan for air circulation? We have a screened-in porch but I am not thrilled with how much pollen and dirt comes in. We are in SC. Thanks!

  26. Christy loving your blue and white tea for Mother’s day. Such a great accident with the votive in the napkin rings love it. Pretty setting and like the lantern and collection of pots

    Enjoy the start to your week and Happy Mother’s day

  27. Christy, there is something so classic about blue and white china. It pairs so beautifully with the pink accents. I love the pretty printable, thank you!

I love hearing from you!
