SUMMER ENTERTAINING


   I'm so excited about all our new farmhouse products which just arrived in time for summer entertaining. It looks like things will be opening up next month; I can't wait to do some outdoor entertaining. It will be nice to have family and friends over once again. Here are a few items to help you entertain this summer.

Let me  also give you an update on my organic vegetable garden. It’s amazing how much faster and healthier my plants look using compost and casting worms. I planted my vegetable garden in March and I already have lots of swiss chard and basil. My bush beans, English peas, beets, carrots and zucchini are all coming along nicely too. 



We just hosted an early summer barn wedding last month. My nephew planned on getting married last May but the pandemic hit. This year, he and his fiance were determined to get married this May and fortunately the weather was perfect, sunny with a high of 83. Who knew outdoor rustic would be the new glam!

Our barn is a full working one so it took a little bit of ingenuity and some lots of  work to get it into party mode. The ceremony was held in front of the barn with lots of white tulle covering the entrance and lavender topiaries placed on each side of the doors. 

Afterwards, we had barbeque lunch under umbrella tables and some folks decided to sit under the willow tree to capture the pleasant breeze. This was followed up by dancing to a local DJ and some guests took their hand at playing corn hole and party size Jenga. They left in a vintage bronco with tulle on the back dancing in the wind.

All in all, it was a fun and festive event.

 

 

Lastly, I always try to leave my readers with some type of home tip, recipe etc. I found this link on southernliving.com and thought what a great way to remind us all of the everyday etiquette rules for daily living.
