I don't know if it's the umbrella or what that makes me feel like this table is a little Mad Hatterish minus the hats. I did end up with an awful lot on the table. One thing leads to another. But life is so like that.
It could be the July heat that's making things feel a little crazy. It looked deceptively cool out under the trees on the lawn. But it's a hundred degrees!
I've been wanting to showcase this tablecloth for awhile. It's an old Rachel Ashwell pattern from years ago. It has ruffles and is all pinky cheery, but it's a bit dark for her style. And it ends up being quite busy. So Mad Hatter it is!
I got a couple of the umbrellas in the same pattern at the same time for the little girls. We use them more for sun than rain here. When you're stationed on the lawn the sun does what it wants, and you can pop up a little shade to relieve the madness.

We have a TON of birthdays starting now.
I tossed in a bunch of white to soften things up.
Vintage sheers, tea cloths, and chiffon pillows make for fun and frills.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'm off to party now!
See you around!
