Fourth of July
I had out of town guests staying with me this year from Kentucky. They are about as America as you can get so I really wanted to do something that catered toward them. I immediately thought, traditional backyard BBQ but pumped up with a whole lotta pretty ;) My backyard overlooks a lake, is draped in a canopy of live oaks, and is surrounded by a white picket fence. I love this little shady evening spot so I had the boys drag out all the furniture. It rained and rained HARD, I'm glad to have these pics before we had to relocate!
I found the drop leaf table and chairs at a thrift shop and recovered the main chair in a red, white, and blue checker. It is super funky! The rest of the table furnishings are a collection of picnic inspired pieces. The dishes I found on overstock. I can't pass on a scalloped edge! The centerpieces are comprised of 30 apples and 3 grocery store floral arrangements. The mini sliders were a big hit but that pie table was probably my favorite. Mmmmmm pie. Happy 4th!
