Summer, Summer, SummerTime…

Yeah!  Summer is finally here!  I am looking forward to putting my patio together this weekend so I can show you guys the finished product – in the meantime, here’s a preview of our furniture that finally came in…

I can’t wait to plant the containers and hang the birdhouse I got for my birthday and I’m trying to refrain from adding any more pieces or projects to the list, but this Woolly Pocket keeps calling my name!  And when I finally get it put together, I can’t wait to have an outdoor dinner party!  I’m already planning my menu and serving pieces in my head…want a glimpse?

A big, yummy grilled vegetable salad with some fresh mozzarella, and drizzled with balsamic vinegar.  Delicious Six Seed Soda Bread from (a daily read of mine!) and a grilled shrimp cocktail.  To finish, a grapefruit sorbet with fresh rosemary from our garden and a nice glass of champagne.  I can’t wait!

For the table – I love to mix the texture of wood cutting board, plates and salad bowl with more refined metal dessert cups.  And I adore this vintage bakelite flatwareis it wrong to love flatware? A cute citronella candle to keep the pests at bay, and simple dish towels as napkins to keep us all tidy.

I’m looking forward to this someday dinner party al fresco…

xoxo, jill.
