Yesterday the pergola had a party.
A party that started with a vision.
You know. The kind of vision that takes over when you stare too long at Pinterest and you see other back yards and other outdoor patios and other pergolas having a party and you want to join in the festivities.
I knew it needed a table.
I knew it needed chairs.
I knew it needed pillows and a table runner and plates and spoons and napkins.
But after binge staring at Pinterest for hours and hours and hours…
…I discovered that it needed this.
A hanging flower wreath.
Please tell me you love it as much as I do.
I made it from a faux magnolia wreath.
I hung it over an old wire frame and then hung the wire frame from jute twine.
You could also just hang the wreath from jute twine if you didn’t have a random wire frame laying around in your junk closet.
Then I tucked in ivy and greenery and branches and twigs from the yard and added $4.99 flowers from the grocery store.
And then I set the table.
I started with this willow runner and these square jute place mats.
I found this ready for strawberries and cheescake white porcelain cake server.
I added silverware with clear acrylic handles.
White melamine plates that are perfect for outdoors.
And gray kitchen towels that double as napkins.
(total aside: when you’re using kitchen towels as napkins, it makes cleaning up the party so much easier)
For serving I added this marble serving board.
(total aside: this is one of the prettiest serving board in this galaxy)
This small acacia wood server.
These acrylic tumblers.
This white garlic keeper.
These drink servers.
Finally, I was done placematting and pillowing and cake servering and wood slice serving it up.
The pergola was ready for a party. The blueberries danced. The lemons added the flavor. The chairs pulled up to the table. The giggles and conversation and sweet tea and strawberry cheesecake rang out across the yard.
The flower chandelier smiled. 🙂
