My outside Christmas table decorations

Christmas garden table decoration_-2

I had totally different plans for my Christmas terrace this year. They were elaborate, and crafty and possibly brilliant…..

And then I thought who am I kidding here, if I try to pull that off, I’d be lucky if I have it finished for Christmas in July.

So when I was walking through the garden center this year, to check out their Christmas displays (over here it is the garden centers that have the most elaborate and beautiful Christmas exhibitions), I totally fell in love with all the wintery terrace plants out there.

And I changed plans there and then on the spot and starting filling up my cart with real live goodness from mother nature herself.

I really love how my garden table turned out this year. It is worthy of a very good Christmas.

Come on over and CHECK IT OUT!

Fall Garden Table Decoration with a Toolbox Makeover

Fall garden table decor 2


Hello all, it’s me again, with another round of heather to show you. Our Sunday morning walk in those beautiful fields of heather totally inspired my Fall garden table decoration this year. I loved all those hues of purple and pink so much that I wanted to surround myself with them. And so I did.

My table under the patio roof is now ready for Fall.

Summer on the Garden Table, wedding table decoration

summer bouquets on garden table 7


Hello my sweet friends,

After a short period of falling into Fall we are having a bit of extra summer bestowed on us here in the low lands. And it is lovely. Another round of eating Al Fresco, back to wearing sandals and skimpy tops, replacing the scarfs again with with sun glasses and having the best excuse to open up another bottle of rose wine.

Life is good.

And all this summer weather put me in the mood to show you a little summer decoration I did at the start of my holiday.

It was one of those “I didn’t plan this, but I like the outcome projects”….

It all started with two very simple and rather cheap bunches of flowers from the grocery store.

I did not have plans for them. Just to plop them in a vase, plunk them somewhere and be done with it.

But somehow those bouquets did not want to cooperate and they just did not make me smile, so I had to come up with something else…..

Yesterday was all about outside decorating, in particular my front entrance. But we almost always enter the house from the back. That’s why I love to decorate our garden too. Our roofed terrace is the best spot to goof around a little and get my decorating on. 

Let’s see what I came up with……..
