GARDEN DINING


A vintage inspired yellow quilt with pink blooms bursting all over serves as a summer tablecloth.


A set of vintage turquoise dishes stacked on white chargers
with seashell plates.
The turquoise set & silver are flea finds.


Antique silver in a wire caddy & rose candle holders


A few of the inspiring pieces for my garden party table setting.


Just a quick post~
wanted to share the setting, the colors, the blooms...


It's getting cooler here at night for sure
but warming up into the 90's this weekend again-
so I was inspired to set a garden table while the weather is warm.


A silver dish with little hydrangea blooms & a wire cloche
with little muffins...
big, bold moss topiaries
&
tiny rosemary in clay pots


A creamy soup
&
sliced sourdough with tomato & fresh basil


mixed fruit, baby lettuce salad
A glass of red wine
&
a little Bubl'e on the ipod...
add in family & good conversation.

Memories in the making...


Enjoy!!

  2. Hey, ... I'm still waiting for an invite! It's all so beautiful, from the turquoise dishes to the floral quilt. MMMMM - your food looks delicious. Enjoy your warm weekend! It's very hot & humid here today but it's supposed to be very cool this weekend. I'm skipping out of work early to enjoy the afternoon.

  12. It all looks yummy, from the turquoise dishes to the sourdough with tomatoes. Oh and the curtains, too! The silverware holder is neat, is it new or vintage?

  16. Beautiful, we're getting ready for a tappas party ourselves and bruchetta is on the menu too. I love how you used the tomato slice instead of chopping, and your tablescape is beautiful, makes one want to be there sipping wine. tami

  17. Your pictures look so pretty. Love your turquoise dishes. And you should warn people when they are hungry not to look at your food pictures. Now I'm dying for something to eat. I really like the cake plate with the cloche too.
