I am so glad you have come for visit. This hop is all about Alfresco tablescapes. Many talented bloggers will be showing you their fabulous outdoor tablescapes. Sit back and enjoy!
I set this tablescape up at our beautiful copper table setting, surrounded by wisteria.
The theme is Sunflower Soirée
There's something special about eating outdoors. Taking in the beauty that surrounds us. Fresh air is always welcome.
It's all about the sunflowers.
I am using the bee plates from Horchow with these cute little blue plates with sunflowers. Our bee flatware compliments the plates nicely. Remember those sunflower napkin rings I made a while back?
I created this pretty sunflower tree for the centerpiece.
It all started with a large styrofoam ball and lots of sunflowers.
You can see the buffet island in the background.
My first idea did not work out so well. I had the idea to buy the flower shaped bread from Boudin's Cafe. Unfortunately they said the flower shaped bread was seasonal. Isn't it flower time now? I wanted to put the bread flower on a skewer and set it in a flower pot. See the little yellow flower pot on the table?
So, we compromised and made the existing bread into a flower shape on a platter.
The buffet island looks pretty empty. Trust me, it was filled with yummy food.
