You're Invited to a Garden Party

 
Since  snow and more snow is the only thing in the forecast, I decided to throw a garden party. Maybe if I hope hard enough I can guilt winter into going away.  So ~ today I'm ignoring the snow outside and celebrating spring's arrival 
with a garden party and you're invited.
~
Every pretty garden should have an entrance gate that beckons you to come in.

A pretty table and fresh cut flowers are a must.

And of course every garden party has to have beautiful cupcakes and pink lemonade.

Come dream with me of warmer fragrant days ahead.

Your photos are so uplifting this Monday morning. I especially love the one with the gate. Poor you that you are getting more snow. March is a hard month to get through, isn't it. I think it's the hardest month of the year.

Gorgeous! I'm a sucker for all things garden...especially this time of year. We're having a cold snap here in Texas but the trees are starting to leaf out and spring is on the horizon. Here's to hoping spring comes your way soon! Until then, I love your idea of creating it on your blog. The pictures are so beatiful...I especially love that lavender lined walk and the gorgeous gate in the first pic. (stopping by from Mod Vintage LIfe)

I wish I could be there for your garden party :)
I received a lovely, warm letter from my sweet friend who lives far from me. For years we have not communicated, but now we have reconnected, and it is such a joy for me! I love your love for beauty and for creating beauty. I love it too. I think that it is part of being created in the image of our Creator God--as He created the beauty of this earth for us, with all the columbine and lilacs, the wrens and the peacocks, the blue spruce and the towering oaks, the blue blue skies and the sunsets....so we have that love of beauty in us too! I'm so glad He has given this to us. It sure makes living here more delightful, doesn't it?

For the longest time I have wanted to throw a garden party of my own. Somehow I know mine could never look as lovely as these images, but they are definitely inspiring! I'll have to start a Garden Party board on Pinterest.

So glad you are still blogging, Cindy! This post was a delight to see this morning!
