Happy Monday everyone! . . . Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
Mine was filled with lots of tasks, including preparing for a dinner party . . .
~ ~ my annual turn with the Dinner Group of wonderful friends.
I set a simple table this time . . .
~ ~ no place cards . . . no little “cutesy” things that I usually do . . . I went Simple.
My dining room is a casual room . . .
~ ~ that is located just off the kitchen and at the back side of the house . . .
Rather than the typical formal dining room located in the front of a home.
I am seeing more of this “casual dining space” in new home plans.
We feel as if we are in a “tree house” when sitting in this room . . .
~ ~ as it is a second story view.
The centerpieces are basil plants with daisies added in pretty terra cotta pots.
~ ~ I used the floral aquapics to secure the daisies in the plant.
These centerpieces were given to my guests as “parting gifts”
It makes up for my lack of gourmet cooking skills!!!…:)
Actually, no . . . I love to give my guests a momento of the evening . . .
~ ~ and I typically design my centerpieces as the parting gifts!…Two purposes in one!!
And now to the chair makeover . . . A chair that my niece wanted for her daughter’s room.
My niece is re-locating to the Denver area . . .
~ ~ so after this chair has been sitting in her garage for years . .
~ ~ she wanted to have it recovered before she left.
Ta da!! . . . We decided to eliminate the tufting. . .
~ ~ and paint the legs for a more updated look.
Here it is in a corner of Linda’s beautiful dining room . . yes, she also does upholstery!!
So that was a snipit of my weekend…hope you all had a great one too!
Have a wonderful day and hope it is filled with great sunshine!
