Kindred Style Duo Hosts a Tea Table

I promised I would report on the tea table that Karli and I hosted at her Church this last weekend. So this is me "making good" on all my promises!

Here we are all ready to go to the Tea.
Karli's yard wasn't "blooming" yet, but it was a beautiful day!

The Tea was a lovely afternoon event with delicious food, wonderful entertainment, and more than 120 ladies in attendance. Each of the tables was decorated in a creative way. Karli and I had fun making ours a little "organic" with the use of all the burlap.

A few shots of our table
We had a white cloth covering the large round table. To that we added a square topper of burlap, with a cream vintage linen cutwork cloth in the very center. We used a large ironstone pitcher from the late 1800's filled with fresh white hydrangeas as our centerpiece. We then scattered several of the burlap flowers I had made. To see how these are made, check out the earlier post.

We used Karl's white dishes, cup and saucers, and white teapots. We added three small pots of green herbs. This touch of green tied in nicely with the green leaves of the hydrangeas. These tiny nests added even more "natural spring" flavor to our table.
The precious little nests with birds and eggs--very spring-like!

Everyone loved the bow details we added to the folding chairs.
We tied "recycled" laced (from an old curtain panel) and burlap bows

Even the napkin holders were burlap flowers glued onto burlap ribbon.
The napkins were paper, doily like.

Our table was #7 so I had painted a small frame white, distressed it and covered the inside with what else....burlap. I glued on a small black paper clip to hold our number.

The frame can hold a picture or special postcard later
Karli and I had such a good time planning and hosting our tea table, I am sure we would love to do it again next year. 

Right now I am making plans to "reuse" all those burlap flowers.

Happy Spring,
Kandy (and Karli too)

  1. WOW, that turned out FABULOUS!!! Love the natural burlap mixed with lace. The brown and white warmed up with green. Plus the little frame to hold Number 7 is so adorable for other uses you mentioned.

    What a fun project!!!
