I have had several young girls from my college Sunday School class that have recently got married and are setting up households. My favorite thing to do is to teach… whether it is Economics or baking,
I love teaching. So I decided to teach these girls how to make blueberry jam. With that in mind, I wanted to have a wonderful lunch for our class.
First I found this beautiful blue toile tablecloth that I absolutely love. It goes with my kitchen perfectly.
Next, I found some snapdragons and delphiniums for the vase.
I mixed both a soft bluish aqua with a blue patterned accent plate. Even though the tablecloth is busy, the charger and dinner plate provide enough anchoring to have a busy accent plate.
Love the mix of the tablecloth and the accessories....
My favorite feminine napkins with pewter tea napkin rings.
Tea was available for the girls after lunch.
The star of the lunch, in these adorable ceramic fruit baskets.
The twisted flatware, provide such a wonderful texture.
Candlesticks and pretty blue glasses help to pull the table together.
Here are the jars ready for the jam on a French drying rack.
Another look at the blueberries.
We had a wonderful afternoon making jam, eating, laughing and spilling the secrets of a happy marriage…And of course, I sent the girls home with their jam.. They did a great job!!
