Friday Faves 5.9

ONE galvanized tiered platter make summer entertaining easier and nixes the need for loads of surface space outside.  $50 from Crate & Barrel.  TWO subtle mirror print pillow allows those of us who are a little less flamboyant with our home decor still capture a beautiful trend. Available from House of Rym for €40. THREE tidy and trendy, this modern side table comes in lots of variations from Habitables in Madrid (but ships to US!), $305. FOUR an outdoor rope rug in navy and white is perfectly preppy from Serena & Lily and the price ($395) for a generous 5′ x 7′ isn’t too bad! FIVE I am in love with these little pom pom shorts from LJC designs.  I have been eyeing them for over a year and today, I’m pulling the trigger. SIX celestial coasters from Anthropologie would have worked with yesterday’s post as well!  I love that each one is gorgeously different and made from hand-glazed clay. $32 for a set of four.

 

It’s the weekend!! We have a jam-packed one, what about you? We have three birthday parties (a 1 year old, a 32 year old, and a 94 year old) and Mother’s day.  Whew, that alone is enough to take up the entire weekend!

We’ve been working very feverishly on our patio to get it ready for summer and I hope to show you some pics throughout the weekend on Instagram.  Matt just finished building an outdoor kitchen to house our Green Egg and the grill and we need to break this bad boy in!!  It has enough space for food prep and a bar set up if needed as well.

We also planted a big tree (Red Bud) and lots of little plants (hostas, lily of the valley, bleeding hears, geraniums, cone flowers, lavender, and azalea), then mulched the entire thing.  It was a solid 4 days of landscaping work and although I am notorious for my black thumb, I am trying to be so so good this year and water my plants regularly to keep them alive.

What is on your weekend agenda?
