Anniversary Delight

"First things first...We are truly blessed to have the means to set a pretty table and invite our friends to join us for good food and fellowship. I am mindful that many are not so fortunate. My daughter has a passion for the work of the Food Bank. As a singer-songwriter, she has written and recorded a song that is the anthem for the world wide Crop Hunger Walk project. Her song, "Raise Your Voice" is featured in their video. I've included a link in the side margin of my blog. I hope that it will encourage you to support projects in your community that contribute to the effort to overcome hunger.

My friend Kathy really achieved optimum use of her back yard this summer.  It was fun to let her choose things from my china and linen closets for her parties.  About a month ago, Kathy and D invited friends to gather and celebrate their 20th wedding anniversary.  The gate's open...come on back and join us!

 Another rotten day in paradise...

 We get a lot of mileage out of these blue and white toile tablecloths.  The black French wired baskets are back, and today they are dressed with pink Azaleas.

 Great idea!




 Low key munchies for a delightful afternoon...

It was a wonderful celebration for the happy couple!  Here's to another 20+ years!

I'll be joining the following parties this week:

Let's Dish with Cuisine Kathleen
Tablescape Thursday with Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
Seasonal Sundays with The Tablescaper

Cherry Kay, their backyard is a really sweet spot! Wishing those two a Happy Anniversary, and well wishes for the next 20+ years. Love the blue and white tablecloths!! Well, I do. Those wire baskets really come in handy. I need to think "ahead of the game" and pick up things that work for many different occasions.
Thanks so much for sharing their special event with us. xo marlis

When I saw the blue and white toile, I knew I was going to love this post! Those cloths are always so fresh and inviting, especially for a Summer gathering. Kathy is fortunate to have such a gracious and generous friend. Somehow I suspect you might say the same thing about her! Belated anniversary blessings to Kathy and her sweetheart. May they have many more years of memory-making together.

How nice to see your "stuff" interpreted in a different setting! You are a kind and generous friend! The black wire baskets are brilliant! I'm going to have to go find me some! Happy anniversary to this wonderful couple!

Mary said...
