Summer Brunch Experiment

Summer is passing us by and it seems it's not really come, save just the last week or so. While cleaning my house today I got the sudden urge to host a summer brunch with a bunch of girls. I felt like I wanted to serve mimosa's while listening to my cuban jazz cd.

So while I couldn't muster up all the friends and food right then, I decided to do a fun table setting design. I don't know if only crazy people set tables for invisible friends, but it was certainly fun. My main goal? Make it colorul and vibrant...with a few little quirks. Mom, do not judge my floral arranging...do not! ;)

Enjoy!

This old milk glass piece was originally made to hold bananas. I purchased it at an antique store in Cannon Beach, OR...I see them all over now...at garage sales and antique malls...I usually use this one for holding greeting cards.

Serving a boiled egg? Why not use it as a place setting! This one is for Marilyn Monroe....the other 3 spots at the table for Ava Gardner, Audrey Hepburn and Katherine Hepburn ;) What? Who says they wouldn't come?

This is actually a ring dish, but who's says you can't put blackberries in it? Fresh picked blackberries I might add.
