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.
You can print these for FREE by clicking here to take you to Google Drive to get the PDF. I printed mine on white cardstock. When you go there to print, it will not have Our Southern Home on it.
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!
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 just cut the printable out with scissors……nothing fancy!
This little teapot was my late Mother-In-Laws.
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!
Next up on the tour is Debra from Common Ground. I adore her vintage, French Country Style! Go check out her tea party style!
Happy spring, Happy Mother's Day sweet friends!
