time for a garden party


We’re having the most perfect weather
for a garden party!

All I know is this is where I want to
spend Mother's Day,
and every weekend leading up to it. 💗


These flowers are just a bunch of ivy geraniums
snipped from the garden. 

Isn't the color divine?

adorable easter place setting



Well, now that we’re well into April, 
my focus will be on Easter décor.
 In my collaboration with Oriental Trading,
 I’ve put together several fun and easy Easter ideas 
for your table and more. 

This first one in the series is 
a sweet little place setting 
that’s really a cinch to put together. 

There’s not much crafting involved 
and these little guys will last at least a week or more, 
so you can make them early and 
really enjoy them!


I started with a set of these light colored 

These little flower pots are the perfect size 
and can be used in so many different ways too! 

Now for something to put in these pots. 
My favorite health food market, Mother’s Market, 
sells 4 inch pots of wheatgrass, 
and they’re only $2. 

I also picked up a bunch of this 
small purple wax flower. 
Each container of wheatgrass 
will fill 4 of these mini flower pots.
 I just took the wheatgrass out of its pot, 
and using a serrated bread knife, 
divided into 4 little squares that fit 
perfectly in each pot. 

All you have let to do now is decorate 
with small flowers 
and your bunny!   


Make sure to water the wheatgrass 
after a day or two and 
you may even have to trim it a bit, 
because it grows so fast!


Here’s a glimpse of my tablescape 
with a few more elements added. 
This faux farmhouse table was a thrift store find 
at only $12! 

I had so much fun distressing it 
and then finishing it off with some 
fabulous chalk paint. 

And, the timing couldn’t be more perfect for my 
new Serena & Lily French bistro “Riviera” chairs 
to arrive this week. 
I ordered them online, 
and they arrived so quickly! 

I love how they look with my little table and all the Easter goodies surrounding them. 
Now I’m off to look for a few 
of my pretty vintage dishes that have that 
delicate spring look. 

You see, I’m working on another look 
for Easter


Make sure to stop by again soon
