I was going to do a new table outside today, but it was too bloody hot!
So a little snack for one will have to do!
These little lavender roses were my perspiration, I mean inspiration.It truly is a wipe your brow day! :)
These are my favorite dishes from my friend Marigene at In the Middle of Nowhere from a few years ago.
Fall shmall, it is still summer and I am off to the beach!
Let’s see what this looks like when Earl gets closer! :(
Last week I showed you a table I was working on.
They have a pretty lace edge with a pale blue satin ribbon running through it.
They were 5.00 each.
I have some white with blue and lavender striped too. And I have used them dozens of times for parties.
The china I have had for years! My mom got it for me when I was getting an apartment to go to graduate school at Villanova. Made in Japan, called English Garden, and bought in the supermarket each week! I have a ton of it. Pale blue flower and a silver trim.
I found them, still available on the net…can’t believe it!
I used a pale blue napkin, also ancient, and the stems were a shower gift from my mom.
The centerpiece is a vase of blue and white Baby’s Breath. It smells so sweet!
I tucked some into the napkin too.
The candlesticks are by Empire, weighted silver, and I got them at Savers, for 4.99. :)
I used my silver chargers you have seen before.
A favorite thing to do on a Summer Sunday is to sit on the porch , enjoy the flowers, and be thankful for the fabulous weather we have had the last few days!
So come on up, have a seat…
And relax till dinner is served!
