Good afternoon and a happy day to you all. I hope you are all having a cool and pleasant week. It is still very hot here in Jersey. And it has been raining almost every afternoon. At least our grass and plants get a little help from mother nature to cool off from the heat. But at least it is summer and I am going to enjoy it for as long as I can.
I love open-air gatherings and if you are regular visitor on my blog you will know that I truly enjoy my garden. It serves as such inspiration in so many ways. And may I say I need no excuse to set a pretty and feminine table. It is my little obsession and where I admit of being a little over the top.
So this 4th of July, which was also my sister's birthday I set the stage for a lovely alfresco dinner to celebrate her birthday. Inspired by a set of floral dish towels that I purchased a few months ago at Ikea and vintage pink and my favorite vintage floral china. I think the two match perfectly. I often smile when two very different treasures seem to just find each other and create a bit of poetry. A table dressed with lots of girly flowers in pink and fuchsia tones, pristine whites, crystal and gleaming silver. Enchanting and captivating beauty set in a true outdoor haven for just the two of us to enjoy a great tasting meal, delicious birthday cake, lots of chat and laughs and even reminisce a little. It was a great evening and so long over due...
Thank you for visiting.
