~Summer Outdoor Party and Simple & Sweet Fridays #234~

The weather was so hot in San Diego, 
We wanted to have some friends over that we hadn't seen in awhile. It must have been 90 in San Diego!
I set the table using my sunflower tablecloth from 
Williams Sonoma.

Fresh picked sunflowers from our garden!
Dishes from Williams Sonoma,
I love that store!!

A lemon pound cake for dessert!

The garden looked beautiful that night.
It was wonderful having Kim, David, Denise and Joey over!!
I'm going to share with you more photos
 of the new patio area!
We had a great time reminiscing when the kids were little!!
Friendships Forever!
Hope you all had a great weekend!

Rooted In Thyme


  1. Your garden looks wonderful. I also love Williams and Sonoma!

    That chalkboard sheep with the wildflowers growing from its head is just the cutest!


  2. Dearest friends,
    what a heartwarming and touching post, you always win my heart with your settings and the care, the passion you put in everything you do, thank you !

    After this period of 'interlude' which I had to allow myself due to work reasons - the Short Lets I manage here at Tenuta Geremia, the speech about the Empress of Austria I had to prepare and to perform at the conference which was held last Saturday at Madonna di Campiglio, in our Dolomiti, some works of restoration here and the family to join and follow took me far from the pc for more than a month and a half - I'm so glad to enjoy your artistry again, I've been missing you so much !

    Last week features are so very charming, furthermore, congratulations to the fortunate and talented bloggers !

    Wishing you all my best for the coming weekend to you too,
    sending hugs and more hugs across the many miles
