Garden Tour Blog Hop

June 24, 2016



Hi Friends! I’m so excited to share my outdoor space with you all. I hope you enjoyed all of the other bloggers’ garden and outdoor spaces. Let’s start shall we?

Here’s our front entrance.


I love the stacked stone feature for our entrance area. The wooden “M” hanger was a gift from my friend, Unchong. It came in it’s original wood finish and I painted it a creamy white and I tied a ribbon on the top. I’m thinking of painting the other side to a different color and switching from the two. Maybe I’ll be a little crazy and paint it gray. πŸ˜€ I love adding ferns and other plants around the entrance. My little potted hydrangea did so well this year. 


My gardenia plant just started flowering last week. My sweet father in law planted this for me the summer we moved in four years ago.


I love my vintage coke crate and decided to create a succulent display with it. I mixed them with some other plants and I love all the greenery! It has a variety of live and faux plants. Yup, that would be Emmy photobombing as always. She’s my little “helper” aka destroyer of all things. Ha!


I love it!

It looks really cute on my antique bench. We have four azalea bushes in the front along with Lacecap Hydrangeas that just started blooming this Summer.


Last year, I created a utensil holder with some mason jars. Practical and super patriotic.

In our backyard we have a small garden bed where we plant tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, herbs, beans, etc. The garden fence works great from preventing deer and rabbits from eating everything. 


Every year, our kids have so much fun planting, waiting and harvesting the fruits of their labor. JJ needs a haircut so badly!

Now, onto my favorite part. If you’ve been reading for a while, you know I love creating a tablescape like the one from Mother’s Day or Easter. I love pulling together plates, silverware, and cups to mix and match. My favorite part is gathering the ones I love around the table to break bread. I enjoy creating all kinds of tablescapes and this one was no exception. I literally grabbed things from inside and started putting this together for our outdoor patio set. The patio set was purchased from Home Depot two summers ago and it has held up great. The chairs are made of resin wicker so they are durable and weather resistant. The metal farmhouse table holds up great to the outdoor elements. 


I went with a patriotic themed tablescape. I love how our nation’s colors go so well together. 


The vintage inspired gold plates are from Williams Sonoma Outlet and I love how they look like gold embroidery.

I took my blue and white buffalo checked napkins and created a placemat by letting them hang off the table. Jimmy and I bought these at a seafood restaurant in Myrtle Beach. They had the loveliest gift shop inside the restaurant where they sold home decor items. Yes, I thought it was a bit random inside the huge seafood buffet restaurant but I’m so glad we decided to digest our food by walking in there. Don’t ask me how many plates of steamed crab I ate. #toomany


My brother, John gifted me these gorgeous gold stemless wine glasses from World Market. The clear plastic cups are from Homegoods. They have a wonderful selection of inexpensive plasticware during the Summer.

The 3 tiered plate holder used to be pewter and was purchased from Crate and Barrel many years ago. Of course, I had to spray paint it gold. Nothing is safe from my spray painting ways! The hand towel is from Homegoods and the blue and white Japanese plates were thrifted. The large blue and white pitcher is from Ross and all the other chinoserrie pieces were thrifted finds.

I cut some of my Lacecap hydrangeas from the yard and put them in a pitcher. They have two kinds of buds and are so unique!

    Everything looks beautiful. I love those vintage soda crates. Displaying succulents in it is the best use for a crate that I’ve seen so far – I love that idea!
