SYTYCD Week 9- Garden Party
This week was definitely the hardest for me, while I love to decorate, I'm not a collector of tableware. I do collect vintage floral plates that are used more for decorating rather than tableware. I'm personally more interested in the food than the presentation of the table. So I really was challenged to come up with something appealing.
Since I live in sunny Florida, I knew I had to take it outdoors, and with the temperatures already in the mid 80's it was absolutely perfect to be outside.
I came across these wonderful old chippy wicker chairs at a garage sale about a month ago. I believe that I have a chair addiction....
Since hydrangea's are one of my favorite flowers, I just had put them to use.
Being eclectic to me is so much more appealing than being matchy, matchy, especially in tableware.
For the napkins rings I just tied turquoise ribbon around vintage napkins. Sometimes simple things are best.
These beautiful double pink knockout roses came out of my garden and since I don't believe in using pesticides in my yard, it was definitely safe to use them as a garnish for the top of the cupcakes.
I made cucumber sandwiches, fruit, yummy cupcakes, coconut cookies and pink lemonade.
The birds were singing and the weather was picture perfect, it was simply wonderful to be dining with nature.
