At The Garden Party








A market canopy is so handy and very nice to have, but a garden party can have just as much romance under a market umbrella, a mosquito net, or even just a few sheer curtains hung from the trees. Ours are vintage of course! And pretty easy to find inexpensively at a thrift store.



The girls can almost stage the scene all by themselves. A different menu every afternoon. . . .



Don't care for chocolate? Lemon flavors not your thing?  Not to worry. . . There's always tomorrow!







No shoes required. 














A nice breeze comes up and there's a beautiful drama of billowing curtains like that opening scene in Gatsby! Ahh. . . Summer afternoons. . . . Here's a link to a little fancier feast we arranged for the garden party last summer.




I hope you're taking a little time out for summer fun too!

Dreamy, creamy, rosy and delightful!

I went back to last year's and smiled when I noticed how rusty the one iron plant stand holder got within the year.....the rustier the better I say!

LOVE you have grand daughters. They are beautiful and precious. You are such a good influence to them.

Hugs.

Oh what a lovely scene this is, Jacqueline, and I'm sure your girls loved it, too. It's so wonderful when children learn to indulge whimsy and elegance and ritual. It will truly bless their lives with beauty.
