Yes. I am Lady Gaga for all things in the garden. So I have been thinking, since we will be moving into a house and will be having our very own backyard for once, that a garden soiree will definitely be in order. It will be called a "Garty." Garden + Party = Garty. Duh. First need on the list: Friends. We will have to make friends first. Have no fear, if we do not, we will sit Stella and Billie at the table. They have been trained to appreciate a well styled party. Don't you love how I have not even moved yet, and there are 34,382 things I need to be stressing over right now and I choose to stress over the garden soiree that I am going to throw in my future home with my future friends? I am a realist. That is what I am.
I love Spring and Summer and all of the colors and patterns that it has to offer. More than any time of year, mixing and matching of punchy patterns is accepted and expected. You guys know I like to keep it funky. Who is absolutely OBSESSED with all of these punchy, mixy, matchy table settings?? Is this designer not divine? I came across her work this weekend and honestly am completely blown away. So bold and such vision. Lulaland, I am your newest stalker. I mean fan.
How pretty is this garden soiree? Seriously. I am adoring the oversized ginger jars that are grounding the table. All of the pretty fruit and flowers and pink accouterments just do it for me. They really do. I would love to have an invitation to this little bit.
How. Freaking. Sweet. Is. This? I love this idea for an outdoor party. Not sure how difficult it would be to execute, but hey! We have to have creativity and vision, peeps.
A lovely french garden party right hurrrr. Adoring the conglomeration of sorbet colored pillows on that perfect settee. Wouldn't you love to have tea and crumpets in this little setting?? I need that flower orb. Immediately.
Ahhhhhh. What better accessory to a garden party than hanging paper lanterns?!?! Hello. The simplicity of this garden soiree definitely works because it has just the right elements involved to keep things interesting. That white tablecloth looks like a nightmare for me. I eat like a toddler for those of you who are unaware.
The ruffled, lit tablecloth heard round the world. I know you all have seen this image time and time again, but I need you to see it one more time. For me. What a perfect piece to include in a garden soiree. So serene and so beautiful. I would love to see these tables at night. BEAUTY.
Look at this fun little par-tay. Again, we are letting the lights do the talking in most of these designs. It really does make such an impact on an outdoor space. Making mental notes here, people.
Another set of fabulous floating umbrellas. On my need list: Lots of bulbed stringed lights. Loads of parasols. No this is not a wish list. It is a need list. Practicality.
I seriously cannot think of a prettier display of hydrangeas than this. It literally makes me weak at the knees. Hydrangeas happen to be one of my favorite flowers in the flower kingdom and this display is probably the most grand. Can you imagine incorporating this into a garden soiree hosted by you?!?! $$$$$$
Another lovely garden party display by the newest person I stalk, Lulaland. I can't help it. She's too genius. That designer mind of hers. I am going to need this lilac buffalo checked table cloth. Please. And Thank You.
A totally regal and sophisticated garden soiree right here. The play on pinks and greens is subtle yet so overwhelmingly pretty and chic. I have got major chair envy right now.
Do you see what I am talking about here? Why I am so gaga?!?! I knew you would agree. Ladies, I have to tell you. Modern Spark Giveaway ends tonight. AND. I just checked it out, so many new pillows have been added to the shop. Eeeeeeekkkkk. If you see a username: GagaforGarties, you might know who has entered in the giveaway. Hello Alias. Loves!
