Summer Gatherings

What better way to say hello to summer than with a cold pitcher of lemonade, a bundle of lavender, and being surrounded by those you love?
With the girls help (wink, wink) we put together a vintage table setting for a Father's Day gathering.

i love the contrast of the white ironstone dishes with the cream and blue table cloth which is actually a curtain panel.

Lavender and fresh cut lemons remind me of crisp white linen sheets hanging in the warm summer breeze.
This summer the girls and i will be having a lemonade stand with fresh blueberry muffins.

My breadboard is from White Flower Farmhouse.
i've gotten a few goodies from this store and i like to check back often because they are always adding new vintage goodies!

French baskets are one of my favorite things to collect.
Not only are they charming but also functional to tuck things into.

i love entertaining and hope to do it many, many times this summer.
Too bad all of you didn't live closer so we could lounge around and exchange stories.

Have a wonderful weekend my friends!

until next time,
