Let's have a garden party!
My mom and I just stared a garden a few weeks ago and it's going great.  In fact, I'm planning on starting a new blog series to show you how my garden is growing and changing every week.  We planted herbs, tomatoes, blackberries, squash, corn, beans, peppers, and probably a few other plants I'm forgetting about. Believe it or not, summer is actually my least favorite season.  I just don't like being hot - maybe I shouldn't be living in west Texas LOL! With the garden, I've gotten to the point where I actually want to be outside (even when it's a little hot.)  I love seeing how the plants are doing.
If you follow me on Pinterest, you may have noticed that I love beautiful tablescapes.   I have a lot of Pins with moss table runners just like this one.   I actually planned on using the runner for Easter but never got around to it.  What could more perfect for a garden party tablescape though?
I already had these silky green napkins.  I bought these with Christmas in mind, but it's amazing how often I use them.
For some reason my mom has 5 sets of china.  She figured that each of us 3 kids would want to take a set when we grew up and moved away.  As you can imagine, my 2 younger brothers could care less about what set they end up with.  That means that I got to pick my favorite, which is this beautiful china pattern.  I love the colorful flowers with blue and gold accents.  My mom bought the set back when she was in the Navy and stationed in Japan.  They're older than I am and I'm looking forward to one day passing them on to one of my kids.
I picked up the adorable turnip salt and pepper shakers on clearance when our one and only Pottery Barn was going out of business.  I was super excited about the deal but almost cried when I saw that they were closing.  Pottery Barn was waaaayyyyyyyyyyy on the outskirts of town and open for less than a year.  I have a feeling most people here didn't even know we had a Pottery Barn.  Pottery Barn - if there is any way you guys are possibly reading this, please, please, PLEASE come back!!!! I'm begging you!  But at least I have these salt and pepper shakers to remember you by.
Even when you're trying to be a little bit fancy, it doesn't mean everything needs to be expensive.  I love how candles and simple glass candle holders from the dollar store can add a touch of ambiance.
Thanks for joining me for my garden party and I hope you liked this table setting.  Make sure to come back later this week for the kick off of the new garden series to see how my plants are doing!
