We had a little snack lunch outside, where we could enjoy the blooming lillies.

Bargain Hunting with Laurie
Y’all know I love estate sales.  Almost everything I used to serve our lunch was purchased at an estate sale.  The food is the only new thing on the table (I know you’re glad to hear that).  I have a large number of Myott Finlandia dinner plates, mugs, cups, saucers, and dessert plates.  They were purchased at three different estate sales.  The stems were from an estate sale too.

Okay, the HB Henriot Quimper napkins and the butterfly napkin rings were not from an estate sale.  The napkins are from the on-line store, The Quimper Collection.  I think the napkin rings were on sale at Pier One a few years ago.

Bargain Hunting with Laurie No flatware required – just serving finger foods.

The stitched placemats and the trays with handles were from estate sales long ago.

The basket is holding little sandwiches that really didn’t look pretty enough to be photographed.  Fortunately, they tasted better than they looked.

Everything looks so pretty, and the flowers are beautiful. Wish I could be there to have lunch with you.

How pretty. I love lots of blue and vintage linens and dishes! Everything looks perfect for summer! Maybe you've eaten all of the sandwiches already and didn't save us any! heehee! ENJOY!

Love those orange day lillies!

Jewel Sauls said...

I love the orange day lilies with the blue and white china! And I love those napkin rings, too. Glad you didn't get the food from an estate sale!!!

Hi Laurie, What an inviting snack outside using your gorgeous blue and white. The lillies and their color are so complimentary to the setting. Love how you layered the plates with the cup and added the details. Always so gorgeous my friend.

Thank you for the kind comment on my last post. Your words touch my heart. I will continue to visit as often as I can.
Wishing you many blessings.
See you soon.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

I love blue and white. I dont have any, but I love it. The lilies are beautiful as well. They are not blooming here yet.

Mimi said...

Love the baskets instead of plates- great idea! I love estate sales- the fun is in the hunt!

Christine @ Rustic-Refined said...

Wow, I love the orange... and to put a coffee cup upside down and put a plate on top...I never would have thought of that...Great job!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

I have some of those same plates Laurie, I purchased at a garage sale and off of E-Bay.
I love them and will never tire of that pattern.
Love this fun setting, you make everything look good!
hugs to you,

What is it about blue and white that just makes me so happy! Love the plates and placemats! hugs, Linda

My day lilies have been blooming for a few weeks. I'm going to miss them when they finish. Wish I could get them to bloom all summer. Love the blue and white setting with the pop of orange. '-)

Bonnie said...

What a unique and clever idea to have your centerpiece function and focal point. I love your china pattern, napkins and darling napkin rings. Your daylilies are gorgeous!

I could use a little snack about now. Love your colors.

Judy Biggerstaff said...

The napkin rings are so cute and I always love blue and white. Such good choices you have made and your lilies are beautiful.

I love estate sales too but I usually don't find such treasures as your have. I'm going to check out the store you mentioned too.

Crystal Grandeur said...

Your little snack lunch table is so cute and relaxing.lovely to see the lilies bloom in the garden.the napkin rings looks beautiful.nice share...very cool...:):)

Dewena said...

I love the lilies! We have some double ones that bloom later in the season, just that color. And your blue and white china and linens are just the right foil for them. I have looked for little baskets like that, an uptown version of those plastic things that old burger places used to bring your order to the table in!

Kathleen said...

Such a pretty snack table, the garden looks so pretty!
Our lilies haven't bloomed yet, something to look forward to! Of course I look fwd to our gdau Lily all the time, she is growing like a weed! :)
