It’s pink petal party time, so pick a purse and join me under my tree!
Once a year, if I’m lucky, usually around the time that my bulbs are at their peak beauty, a pink cloud appears on my back deck, when millions of petals pop open on my cherry tree, thrilling me and giving Mr. Fun something to do when they all fall off the branches and stick like glue to everything in sight.
The falling petals usually don’t bother me at all, because during this brief time I’m able to set pretty tables underneath.
It’s easy because no one is really looking at the table.
Or the food. So I can serve jello in a dainty crystal glass and it tastes delicious.
I haven’t seen any butterflies fluttering in my yard yet this year, but one of my favorite enamel dish patterns has butterflies of every color. These MacKenzie-Childs butterflies are wearing wings made of M-C patterns, some current and some retired.
My bulbs from Colorblends have produced the most beautiful daffodils and tulips. I can’t recommend them highly enough! I just toured Bunny Williams’ garden again, and she told me that she switched to Colorblends this year too. (post coming soon, I promise! 🙂 )
I like the contrast of the pastel blossoms, the colorful, dainty butterflies, and the bold black and white of the Courtly Check.
Dear MacKenzie-Childs, In the extremely off chance that you see this, PLEASE bring back the heart sachets that you see dangling in the photo below. They were one of my favorite hostess gifts!
I might start using these enamel spoons. Do you think they would make good hostess gifts?
As you can see, Mother Nature was adding her own touch to my table, sending gentle breezes to shake petals onto my dishes.
If petals on your plates and in your tea don’t bother you, please pull up a chair, choose a purse for your place card, and join me.
Which tiny purse would you choose?
(you can see them in another post here)
~~ I hope you have enjoyed your visit and I look forward to hearing from you! ~~
joining these parties! (I LOVE parties!) Thank you to the hostesses, Susan and Michael Lee!
