Garden Party

Spring is here, and to properly ring it in a Garden Party is most certainly in order. The calligraphy-adorned invitations have already been hand-delivered to my guests. The pretty petit fours, lemon teacakes, cucumber finger sandwiches, and honey fruit salad has been prepared. Atop the long table nestled amongst the greenery rests a crisp white linen tablecloth touched up with a vintage silver serving tray, and flower-adorned white china teacups. Inside the matching teapot an English tea sits. In miniature saucers and bowls lie lemon wedges, cream, and sugar cubes. Everything is ready for my guests. I, however, am not. The perfect look for a proper garden party escapes me. But wait, maybe I have something just right for the occasion. This Floral Satin Dress.

Pink, white, red, and green mingle together on this divine white satin backdrop. A plunging sweetheart neckline provides just the right amount of space for a statement necklace to clasp prettily at the throat; while the pleats and empire waist add a billowy, bouncy flair. Cinched around the waist, a thick grosgrain bow tie sash in a contrasting fuchsia color that creates a charming dainty bow in the back. And underneath it all rests a frilly tulle trim. Yes, I have found the most irresistible ensemble for my garden party. The question is...what will you be wearing to the event?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Charlotte Russe for the picture.

That dress is gorgeous. We have more bbq's in my family, and I wear a lot of skirts and dresses for them. Although the excitement of summer coming is decreasing because its been raining for about 2 days now.

This dress looks beautiful !

Nikolett said...

Ah that is so adorable. The problem with me, though, is getting a bunch of dresses but never having anywhere to wear them! So I usually just invent occasions to. I'd love to go to a tea party someday!
