~July 4th Treat, Refinished Table, Sunset and Simple & Sweet Fridays #225 ~

White chocolate with edible flowers make a special
July 4th Treat.
 I picked edible flowers from our garden.
I used bachelor button flowers,
also known as cornflower.
I used the petals from our red roses.
I washed them off and dried them on paper towels.
I melted the white chocolate and put it on some parchment paper.
Then, added the flowers all over and
 placed it in the refrigerator to set up.
White chocolate with edible flowers,
a simple treat for July 4th!
A table that was given to me from my mother and father needed a 
bit of refinishing. Stan took on the job.
He stripped, sanded, stained and sealed it.
It looks brand-new now!
Looking forward to enjoying it this summer!
By the way, the weather last week in San Diego was in the 100's.
It was so hot!
But, the sunsets were just gorgeous!

Looking forward to all your inspiring projects this week!

  9. The white chocolate is absolutely heavenly looking. I'd love to make it but it would have to be for grown ups, definitely. I made a cake with edible flowers for a family occasion with my kids and it wasn't touched. Kids! And I mean 35, 34, 29 and 25!!!

    The table is gorgeous---Stan did a lovely job. Many memories before and now!!
