I'm all ready for lavender scented afternoons. Even a single pot was enough for a fat bumble bee to stop by and join me for a few moments of her day.
But there will be other such impromptu visits soon, and the table is set for them.
I have been mulling over a garden themed table ever since I found a couple of key ingredients.
These fun flower pot napkin rings for instance. Only after I paired them with my ruffled PB napkins did I discover their origin. I never saw them when they were offered at Pottery Barn. I found mine at a fleamarket bundled together for only two dollars!
I feel festive, and have been festooning. Sometimes the patio umbrella pole is invisible to me, and other times I just want to cover it up. A crisp and breezy vintage white curtain does the trick today.
I started out here with a glass of tea and my new magazines and got carried away! That wonderful smell of lavender inches away from my nose may have had something to do with it. Or maybe busy Ms. Bumble. . . .
A little birdie is ready to carry a message.
Lacy white china for nibbles, and lacy white lace for show.
Such a cozy bed for your favorite silverware to lie in. . . . (I saw more of these pots for sale on ebay.)
I adore the character of old glass.
This itty bitty pitcher at 99 cents has stolen my heart.
A little lace square that I found of late decorates a vintage wicker flower basket (new to me) that has joined the party. How I love that cheery chippy white paint!
It will be a fine weekend for visiting outdoors in these parts!
I hope it is lovely where you are too!
Wishing you a beautiful week!
