Simple Summer Table Setting

 

A few weeks ago we had our friends + new baby over for brunch on a Saturday morning.  


Normally, I wouldn't really worry about having a floral 'arrangement' for a casual brunch with this group of friends, but Mike had taken Emma on a long walk that morning so I could get everything ready.



It is a rare treat for me to be in the kitchen all by myself!    I had just enough time to walk around our yard to gather some herbs, flowers and vines to make this casual, organic-y, non-arrangement.


A closeup of fresh oregano and pansies.


Can you believe I actually still have some pansies?  These are the last of them - made perfect accents to the blue hydrangea from my urns.


I'll be back with more brunch details tomorrow - I just finished up my Outdoor Entertaining Workshop tonight... ready for bed!

  3. A small arrangement gathered from the garden is always a lovely touch. I sometimes do that when I'm taking the dog out for a walk, even if we don't have company coming over. It's just a nice way to spruce things up a bit.

    Can't wait to see what you served for brunch!

    How exciting!! I'm starting my own little shop, too.
    "My Vintage occasions" its so fun to pick and choose what to carry. Love the idea of packaging things and kitchen necessities. Depending on s and h, I think that is a reasonable price. I would like to be added to your pre-order list. Thank you.
    Printables may be a creative addition to add to your shop. :-)

    P.S. Do you mind sharing where you found the lantern that is hanging over your table in this post? It's perfect!!
