Lemonade Dreams & Gerber Daisy Wishes

I love this time of year when I do most of my tablescaping outdoors. The weather has been lovely here and I love taking advantage of it! Imagine a laid back feeling, sipping lemonade and discussing the days events with your family. Casual place settings and beautiful centerpieces, silverware, yours for the taking, displayed in a milk glass dish. Easy breezy dining, rosemary chicken , green beans, and strawberries are on the menu (Thanks for cooking Justin!)

Having fun with Big Huge Labs! :)

  4. Hi Michelle,
    Very, very pretty! I love yellow and white, my bedroom was that combo when I was a little girl. Very frilly and girly! Your table setting and all details are perfect for an outdoor meal.

    Have a great day.

  16. How very sunny! I wish our weather were more conducive to outdoor eating - too humid!
    But, early in the mornings it's spectacular.
