Our garden party was a beautiful success – from menu to decor, it felt like the perfect late spring soiree. As mentioned, I was thrilled to co-host with Eye Swoon's amazing Athena Calderone and partner with One Kings Lane for some of the design elements for the day, and couldn't have been happier with the results.
To set the table, I used my new Variopinte enamel plates and bowls in white and mint, which just came in at my Montecito Home store, and my favorite mismatched antique flatware. And, as the perfect floral accent, Liberty Print napkins that we made using the fabric from my Pre-Fall Collection, topped with sweet and simple floral wristlets that our guests could wear and take home.
For our florals, the amazing Kristen of Moon Canyon Design made the loveliest arrangements, perfect for the theme. She created a summer garden centerpiece composed of wild blueberry, cafe au lait dahlias, white ball dahlias, astilbe, scabiosa, chocolate cosmos, sunflowers, blushing bride protea, peonies, and hosta leaves, with a low stone compote for the vessel.
In vintage glass Belgian jars scattered throughout, she displayed peonies, astilbe, and dahlias. And on the serving table, placed bundles of variegated hydrangea in a Wicker Pool Basket from One Kings Lane. XXJKE
