After one of the harshest winters on record, we have been practically living on the deck this spring. I love to drag out all the pillows and linens and crystal, and take our meals amid the flowers.
Even the simplest of meals becomes special when you make up a pretty tray and sit in the fresh air.
And oh, how I love these cute little purple pansies. I know they will soon wilt in the heat we are getting here, but I will enjoy them while I can.
A Waterford jam jar, linen napkin, monogrammed silver spoon and beautiful hand-painted plate are all served up on a green tole tray.
And a small bouquet of peonies, baptisia, spirea and foxglove from my garden make the meal special. Breakfast, en plein air. :)
