So I played with dishes in the backyard!
I saw on Instagram there was a #summerdesignchallenge for a garden party and I thought it would be fun to play along. Of course, I missed the deadline, but oh well, I had fun and I took enough pics to share with you!
I started with this table runner I picked up at Home Goods earlier in the spring. It's perfect for where I'm heading with my sunroom/dining room.
We have my parents old chippy picnic table and I love the way it looks. However, Worker Bee is fed up with it. He is worried about ingesting paint chips. I told him it's good for the digestion, but he disagrees. I just might have to repaint it this summer.
Then I used my thrifted vintage Wedgewood Hedge Rose plates.
I added my vintage, probably antique, silver-plate flatware and napkins I bought at World Market.
I used the sweet aqua glasses I got from Pottery Barn and wine glasses my mom picked up for me at the pharmacy she used to work at. They are made by Tag.
Finally, I used these aqua bowls from World Market.
Who knew? My wine bottle even goes with the beachy colors!
And I am such a rotten friend. I texted pictures of my little imaginary garden party to my friends teaching summer school. Don't worry, I promised to have them over for a nice garden luncheon.
Now, can I serve you a lovely gazpacho soup? Or perhaps a cold berry soup?
Thanks for buzzing' along!
