Tablescapes, Garden Party
With the weather warming up, we all want to be outside. My yard looks TERRIBLE. So don’t look around too much…
Even though we are starting to have days in the 70s, I have lived in the South too long to be fooled by Mother Nature. She gets extra tricky around here in the Spring time and we’re likely to have a snow shower or a freeze before mid April. The nurseries are overflowing with garden flowers, but No! Do not be tempted! The risks are too great!
So, to cheer things up a bit, I plant my metal flowers! Come on around to the patio, it’s time for the party!
The centerpiece for the table is a large painted tile
It’s painted with regular acrylic gloss paint. Once it drys it is very durable and weatherproof.
The tile is bordered with fresh carrots and radishes and the places are set with heavy cotton ribbed mats.
Faux veggies are tied under twine napkin rings
The faux veggies make a fun party favor…
No utensils today, we’re having finger sandwiches and fresh veggies and dip,
with a mini cupcake for dessert
and iced Sunflower tea to drink from mason jars
with colorful straws.
Is it warm enough where you live to have a Garden Party yet?
I hope so!
Thanks so much for joining my party today, I hope it’s put you in a sunny mood!
The tile and dip set are my original designs from JMdesignsGallery.com
