So on my bucket list I put some of the things that I really want to be able to do before I die. One of them has been on my mind a great deal lately. A garden party. I want to throw a lovely Itallian Evening garden party. I looked on line to see if I could find pictures of the type of garden party that I wanted, and I did so to no avail. HOWEVER, I still found some cool pictures. Here they are.
This one would be fun, but I want mine in the evening.
This picture had to be thrown in there because it is a garden party in the Czech Republic and I think that is just awesome! Seriously, I love this country more and more every day.
This is the picture that is closest to what I want, but I don't want the tent and I don't want it that big. But I love the lighting.
And this is where I think I have gotten my romantic idea from. I adore Jack Vettriano's art. To me it is so interesting. And while I don't want my garden party to be formal, I love the idea of the lights.
So here is what I think I want at my garden party:
-Candles at the tables
-White lights strung around garden
-A full herb garden to pick stuff from
-Soft Itallian music
-Fun table cloths
-Good Itallian food
-Lavender Lemonade (or something as refreshing)
-Lots of laughter
-Warm summer evening!
We will see if it happens!
