Please contact me and congratulations to you both!? If you have been reading my blog for any length of time, by now you know I am obsessed with all things blue and white, letterpress and monogrammed anything, beautiful silver and linens make my knees buckle as do magnificently decorated wedding cakes and last, but not least I am a sucker for a beautiful table. I could just stare at them all day long. Forget whats being served, just show me a beautiful table! Flowers are an absolute must have, monogrammed linens take a table setting to new heights, gleaming silver…..now my hearts racing. All ingredients for one magnificent table…and there’s no such thing as “too much”! ?In light of the fact that the summer and spring entertaining ?season is upon us, I would venture to say that some of us at some point be attending a party, wedding or fete of some sort? ?So here’s inspiration that I think might just knock your socks off. This makes me want to throw a party but I am so so far from being ready. It does motivate me to quickly get this house in gear so hopefully by 2013 I am ready for some kind of shindig! How about you? Do they have that effect on you too? ?? This is just downright breathtaking….I wouldn’t eat I would just sit and stare!

Fotobank This is so beautiful and eye catching. The focus is on the lime green but they used pops of pink for the contrast….fabulous! Martha Stewart Wow……makes me want to have a party!!
