Last winter's Progressive Dinner Party went so well
we decided to do it again, this time in Spring.
My house was stop #2.
I went a little wacko with a table display.
I randomly bunched up a few of my vintage table cloths as a backdrop.
- The 7-up crate and frame - I found at the last garage sale spree.
- I found the pitcher/glasses set at one of my favorite shops, La Garage.
- Also, the blue tin that holds the ginormous foxgloves.
(They're going in my garden any day now.)
The cool frame is also from the last garage sales - $1.
I just printed the 2 with the circle. It is 'k' in the font - Webdings 2.
As you can see I went a bit lilac crazy.
I couldn't help myself.
Lilacs are in full bloom here & they are everywhere.
I nabbed these from a neighbor's tree.
Tip: They last for days if you hammer the end of their stems then put them in water.
I've found a few more silver pots at recent sales.
It was fun to use them in a new mantel set-up.
A few more deals:
I actually found old clocks!
No small feat as they are tough to find these days.
The two bigger ones were .50 cents each. score.
The smaller one was $3.00
One last detail.
I scored the aqua Ball canning jars for .25 cents each.
Plus - the tin tops for .10 each.
The details: For my course I served,
- Fruit salad with Pineapple, Strawberries, Red Grapes, Fuji Apples and Kiwi.
- We drank Sangria.
Plan a party!
