It keeps raining, raining and raining in Los Angeles. Wouldn’t be nice to just chill out in this pretty and cozy bedroom featured with pastel color palette, poster bed, toile wallpaper, vintage channel-back love seat, mid-century chandelier, and pink-shaded table lamps, etc…?
Today’s LA weather is very nice–warm sunshine and a little bit of breeze. With Christmas around corner, I think it will be a perfect time to set up an outdoor table top and have a little bit high tea on this beautiful weekend sunny afternoon in Dec. Yes, we are just lucky enough to still be able to host a backyard outdoor party in Dec. My inspiration for today’s setup came from the designer floral fabric I got a year ago. I really like the elegant pattern of the fabric and always think how I should use this fabric for my next decor project. It looks like today is a day. The fabric will be perfect to cover my little French table for today’s outdoor party setup. It’s British, whimsical, floral and really mimics the garden. So, here we go:
Chinossorie, English china and some fresh casual floral arrangements with a lush greenery backdrop. Love the sunny day!
Here are 5 ways to host your backyard outdoor high tea party:
Just do it.
Start small—a small table, a fine table cloth will help you start the project.
Always keep your eye on antique tea cups—they are the Queen for your party.
Hello, December! Christmas decorations are in full force. No matter what’s you mood and how busy you are, it’s really up to you to make any holiday season festive, happy and special. There is only one Christmas a year. Why not make it beautiful? If you are not into big construction work, there are so many different ways to decorate your houses in this holiday season. Here is our project I would love to share with you :
There are 5 steps we did for this project:
Change the wall color from the old dull yellowish color to cheerful candy pink—it’s youthful, feminine and elegant. The traditional Regency walnut breakfast table, Louis-XVI chairs and trimmed upholstered sectional sofa add a touch of classic and make the space more grow-up.
Add a cream faux fur area rug to make the room cozy and inviting.
We go all natural from Christmas tree, green branches around beams to dried fruit wreath at the back of the chairs. It’s more fun, inspiring to play with natural materials. Here are some guidelines on how to take care of real Christmas trees.
Have some modern brass lighting fixtures to make the room dazzle–it can truly fresh up an old space immediately.
Make your table display festive and beautiful—it’s show time.
