Spring Is A-Comin’

This beautiful setting reminded me that Spring needs to hurry the heck up. It’s close, though. And I can feel the changes coming. The sun is setting a bit later, weather is warming up (not that us Southern Californians have much to complain about), but these are always pleasant reminders of what’s in store. Spring has long been my favorite season, making me wanna bust out some girlie sundresses and plan for a fun birthday. May 12th, ya’ll.

That said, I’ve suddenly had the urge to host a garden party. A sweet, afternoon gathering with my girls, appetizers, cocktails, sunshine, and some great table setting.

Here are some images to keep the inspiration moving.

Some items I’d incorporate into my theme.

Garden Party

pink peonies in a silver pitcher, mini tree place card holders, fun plates, turquoise goblets, bamboo silverware, cute patio chair, wood trestle table and pink ikat table runner.

What would I wear to my party, you ask?

In my imaginary world, I’d wear this Rebecca Taylor frock from her Spring 2010 collection.

    Nene,

    Your blogs are Carry Bradshawesque without all the sex. I really enjoy your posts. 🙂
