An Inspired Garden Party Table

Once I actually decide on dining chairs (still haven’t, time is TICKING) I plan on entertaining a lot more than I have.  And since my patio renovation is about to break ground (YAY) I may actually be having dinner parties outside sooner than inside!  I love eating outside- I don’t care as much what the food is as long as the ambiance is great and there is a cool summer breeze.  When I saw this image from Aerin Lauder I felt totally inspired to set a table:

I love the colors and the mix of fancy and casual elements on the table.  And then I went in search of other green and blue inspired tables…

  1. Love the bamboo flatware! Unfortunately the link for the cheaper version is for the brass urchins instead. Erin, can you share that link with us please ;-)

  2. I love a good, colorful table. I think summer in general makes me want to entertain more…the flowers, the weather, the ease of a BBQ. Love it all, great picks!

  3. Some beautiful designs and placements… love how very free-flowing everything is– like with the orchids inside the glass, what a great idea. Love the invitation too – simple and elegant!
