A Pretty Garden Party


This is so beautiful I couldn't resist posting it. I originally found the image on Brilliant Asylum who originally found it on Decor Amor - as BA said it looks like it's been torn out, folded and put away for safe keeping and was most probably from a 10 year old Martha Stewart mag! Love the old bentwood chairs (aren't they such a classic piece) and the tree is simply divine lit up so beautifully with hanging candle jars!

Wow..I LOVE the contrast between the warmth and the cold! (Or what appears to be cold, anyway...)

So nestled and lovely. The candle lit jars mimic the wonder of fireflies on a summer night.

One of my rules in recent years is to surround myself with beauty and inspire others to do so. You are an inspiration to us all! I can't wait to come back more often. Perhaps we can collaborate one day!

The settnig reminds me of that gorgeous John Singer Sergeant painting with the three little girls in the garden!

It looks a little like this table is a minature one- maybe Martha Stewart has fairies in her garden!

I love the candle jar lanterns! I've actually used this idea twice -- once at my sister's 16th Birthday party and at a Fall Festival. Both times they set the mood and ambience of the occasion.

These trees are actually in bloom right now in LA and they are breathtaking, like puffy clouds. This photo was just what I needed to motivate me to clean up the back yard for summer. Thank you!
