Garden Party!

Sunday, April 18, 2010 | Category: Dining Rooms, Home Exteriors

This entire weekend has been so dreary here in the big D <sigh>.  I am so looking forward to the weather becoming consistent and it actually looking like Spring around here!

One of my favorite pastimes when the weather is sunny and bright, is to have brunch outside.  The best day for this?  Sunday of course!

A girl can dream of brighter days ahead..but for now, I guess I will have to live vicariously through the magazines that showcase pretty garden parties with bright colors and sun-drenched terraces.

Traditional Home featured one this month in particular that really caught my eye.  Heather Christothoulou hosted a garden party outside her Seattle home complete with silver Chiavari chairs, white ginger jars, pink chandeliers and bright green accents.  What’s not to love?

I immediately recognized the Suzani dessert plates from Anthropologie on her table (I have the same set!)  Her color scheme is very close to my own dining room’s.  I am incredibly girly at heart so her garden party certainly struck a chord with me!

And all that fresh food looks so delish…

These photos are so uplifting that I almost forgot that I am still stuck in rainy and bleak Dallas weather.  How ironic is it that I am jealous of Heather’s Seattle weather right now?

How Lovely. I’m having my own little garden party on Saturday. Here are a few images I used for inspiration:

Too bad I won’t be using those fabulous chandeliers.

I’m probably not supposed to be posting here as my wife would kill me, but I’m pretty proud of how her Garden Party came out, and I know she used the MG blog as a bit of inspiration. Would love some comments, though don’t tell her I sent you:oP

Hey Willie,

It came out beautiful! I love all the colors she used and especially her pink wingchair! It looks like it was a great party and definitely a success! Thanks so much for sharing with us.

My sister enjoy to make Garden Parties. I will deffinitely tell her about this and make her invite me once she prepare it. I’m also sure she’ll love it.

I love it. Please forgive me, but I’ll have to use your ideas for my own Garden Partie. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
