Home Grown Decor. . .

Hello my friends, did you know that one of the hottest new trends are the
 #(hashtag) parties on Instagram?
Gals get together and host a theme.  Sometimes they change weekly, others are the same and are for a specific day of the week.
Our friend, Carol from Art and Sand, along with some other ladies host one called, "Home Grown Décor".

Yesterday I had plans to work in the garden.  Cutting back flowers, edging, and mowing were on the agenda.

I was about to fix me a bowl of cereal, (the breakfast of champions) and then head out to work.

I stepped outside for a minute, and oh my gosh; what a gorgeous morning it was!  No dining indoors for me!  I set a small table I have out under the pergola with one of my quilts.
I made it quite a few years ago and It's still one of my summertime favorites.  It's small size and scalloped edge fit the little round table perfectly!
Just so happens that I had roses in the garden to match the pretty ones in the quilt.
Now of course I'm not going to eat this much cereal, but I also wanted to show off my darling new to me vintage Fire King polka dot bowl.  I purchased it from an Instagram friend.  That's another hot trend as well, selling on Instagram.
I try to use will power and not buy, but you know me and polka dots.  Let's just say, will power went out the window!!

A bowl full of cereal, a pitcher of milk, what else do I need?

Juice and fruit.  The yellow rose broke off when I was snipping them for my bouquet so I added it to the small plate of bananas.  Let's just say, no roses were damaged in the filming
of this shoot.  lol!

A close up of the pretty roses in this quilt.  I adore the fabrics!  Polka dots, checks, and flowers. . .what's not to love?

Although I really will not add sugar to my cereal I wanted to use my cute aqua melamine sugar bowl.  It brings out the little blue flowers in the quilt.  I spied it at a thrift shop and I couldn't snatch it up fast enough.  :)

I added Mock Orange blossoms to the bouquet of roses.  The blooms are huge, but weird thing; I can not smell that sweet orange blossom smell they are suppose to have.

Oh what a life!  Dining outdoors on such a beautiful day.  By the way, I am eating Life cereal.  Meant to be, don't you agree?

I shared a photo on Instagram and joined the # party.

When the fun was over and time to work the roses found a spot indoors.  It ended up being in the 90's and I heard on the news that it was in the 70's in the morning.  No wonder it was such a gorgeous morning!

Hope you are having a wonderful life!


I will be sharing with these lovely parties:

Oh My Gosh Jann, I want to jump through the computer and steal those beautiful red pieces! Red/polka dots/quilts/etc, all me!! Love this post! Glad you enjoyed putting together this fun and inviting place to sit a spell! Blessings, Cindy xo

Connie said...

Jann, you sure do know how to set a charming table. I love seeing quilts used for table cloths, although, I have never done it myself. I'm too afraid of staining something I worked that hard on. The fabrics in that quilt hit a home run in my decor . . . they work so well together. You are so talented girlfriend.
Happy weekend!
Connie :)

I love your little breakfast table. What a sweet quilt you made! I just posted a picture of my Orange Blossom tree on Instagram....I did not know about the # parties. How do you join? Also, after seeing your orange blossoms I think I am leaving out the beginning of the name Mock Orange Blossoms! I just love the tree and the flowers. It is my most favorite thing in the garden.
