Summer Garden Party

The weather has been absolutely wonderful here in Birmingham.  I've got parties on the brain - from small casual dinner gatherings to afternoon cocktails with friends all the way to more formal affairs for larger groups.  Here are some tables capes to mull over for your next entertaining opportunity. 

Love this picnic table dressed so casually among the flowers in the garden (notice the pea gravel underneath).

My kind of dessert.

Simple Paper Lanterns - also love those cafe style folding chairs.

A picnic party!! Never seen anything like this.  What a fun invite!  Honestly, it looks like a wedding will take place beneath the altar.  But this would be an easy transition to an afternoon picnic.

Menu cards - why not?  Such an easy, yet thoughtful, addition to any party.

Thinking I need to plan a party.  Who's with me?! M.  


  1. Great ideas for a party. Love the last one with the geometric pattern runner. I am going to have to pin some of these.

  2. Beautiful images here. I've been wanting to try those popsicles and champagne. So refreshing!

  3. This is simply amazing. Such gorgeous pictures!!

  4. Not quite ready to entertain here yet but when I do my backyard space I have pea gravel on the list!

  5. That is such a cool idea for a casual wedding - I love it!

  6. Okay, I want those boozy popsicles, now! ;0)


Thank you for thoughts on my post! M.
