Lovelies! Today is the day. Today is the kickoff of the Summer Series with myself and Court from A Little Glass Box! As you can see, we are starting with Outdoor Decor. It is no surprise to any of you that I could not be less shy about using color. I am bout it bout it. My ideal summer soiree would be equipped with none other than loud patterns, bright colors, anything gold, colorful refreshments and fresh flowers. Phew. Did I get it all? The best way to accessorize a table is with functional pieces ie lovely bottles of Pellegrino and flavored sodas. Trust me. Summer, summer, summertime. Summertime. Just a little Will Smith for you on this Tuesday morning. Thank me later.
A close up of the place setting. Layers of solids mixed with patterns gives you that built, textured look we are all looking to achieve.I love to decorate any soiree with refreshments and colorful produce. Totally multipurpose for aesthetics and also to suit your guests needs. Duh. How about several colors of fancy schmancy soda and Pellegrino? Done. What is that lovely pitcher filled with scrumptious produce you ask? You may find out on Friday.
Peonies are my one and only true love. They make an appearance at any and every occasion in my home.

And I know we are all DYING to know what Court with A Little Glass Box came up with. Girl has so much talent and creativity that it nauseates me. Love you Court! Here is a little sneak peek of her evil genius.
Here is the line up for the coming weeks ahead. I must be held to a schedule.
