Looking down from the deck above you can see the lush courtyard below.
Looking up in the courtyard to the wisteria covered deck off the kitchen.
The newly installed fountain with roses floating in the basin.
The spectacular trumpet vine that was come back for the 2nd year and grown up and over the pergola- just glorious!
Huge hibiscus flowers
The crystal candelabra in the bird bath- so wonderful with the drippy candles.
And then you see the "creation "- the breathtaking dinner table. An artfully combined tablescape of roses and ribbons carefully woven into an artistic canvas. Truly a feast for the eyes.
Treats of the olive oil and vinegar that were used for the dinner salad dressing were favors for each guest.
The ivy from the hanging baskets created a curtain around the dining table.
Each place setting was on a wooden board with a black and white napkin tied with a rose and eucalyptus.
Dinner was divine- tomato basil soup served in vintage punch cups
A beautiful summer salad with tomatoes, peaches, roasted chicken and lots of yummy goodness
A simply divine summer pies for dessert with sorbet!
What a delightful evening- wonderful friends, food and the perfect setting. Thanks MT for another memorable time at your lovely home.
