Hi friends, so summer is here and this week it really feels like it….very hot! Here in New York, it’s not quite the norm, and everyone is wearing masks (as they should) but I am determined to make the most of things even if they are a bit different this year. Summer is such a short season as is, we need to make every day count! If you love peonies, summer and elegant but inviting summer entertaining, then think you will really enjoy this post. I know I so loved putting it together, some of my favorite things all in one post. I have to say these might be some of my all time favorite place settings ever. When you have beautiful ingredients like spectacular peonies, elegant melamine, beautiful blue and white and pretty linens…….its kind of hard to mess it up:) Same place setting that was changed up with flowers and containers. Really love how these came out some of my all time favorites! Enjoy…. __________________________________________________________ Setting #1 One thing I have started going a lot is mixing and matching our melamine patterns, I LOVE the effect!!! Our figurine pattern is a classic:) Shown here with our original blue/white charger…great play on patterns. I mean these peonies…so beautiful!! Our super popular basketweave flatware is sold out but coming back in sometime later next week (click here to preorder) Setting #2 Here I used different colored peonies which changes the look and used our shaped cane hurricanes (click here to see) Setting #3 Then I took my favorite footed planter (click here, they come in 2 shades of blue) and added pink peonies and what can I say..it’s love! And meanwhile inside, made a gorgeous peony arrangement with one of our fabulous cherry blossom jars….wish I could keep it this way forever This is one of my all time favorite ginger jars, a true beauty.
