My Hollyhock Bird House Table

My tablescape is centered around this cute pink and green bird house. Did you notice there are no checks?  I have a large birdhouse off the dining room. I enjoy feeding the birds and watching them.  We have a problem with the squirrels.  They are constantly trying to climb the pole or tree to get the sunflower seeds.

This is my Mackenzie Childs Hollyhock bird house.

I set the table with my Horchow Pink Baroque dishes.  I wish I had bought another set , because now these are discontinued and I only have a set of 4. If you snooze you lose!  LOL. 
Pink goblets with green flatware.  The placemats are also a lovely shade of pink and green. I am using two napkins in the goblets. Turning the bowl at an angle give the table an interesting twist.

When I saw this MKC bird house, I knew I had to have it.  I love the colors.  It is definitely more affordable when they have a sale.

Our deck off the study is a great place to sit and dine.  I love the sound of the fountain. Summer is flying by.  How's the weather where you live? I already see people posting fall decor.

Many thanks to Debbie from Mountain Breaths for being my personal shopper at the MKC barn sale.
I wanted to share this lovely berry trifle.  I made it for a dinner party down by the pool on Sunday night.  The whipped cream has lemon curd, which gives it a wonderful flavor. You can find the recipe by Tyler Florence.
