I am an Artist from Northern Ireland living in the U.S. with my Husband. I wanted to create a blog to showcase my art work and things that inspire me. I named my blog Peacocks and Dragonflies because they are both beautiful. I don't think all artwork has to have a deep meaning, I think that creating a beautiful item is enough. If the reaction my artwork evokes is pleasure then I am happy.
A little while ago i recieved this lovely invitation from Floss over at Troc, Broc and Recup' to attend her virtual Garden Party. The idea is we post what we will wear - and what we imagine the party is like so without further ado.... Seeing as the part is virtual I thought I would shell out the big bucks and go in this beautiful Tuleh dress. The design reminds me of silk scarves.
I imagine that for those of us who do not have hats Lace Parasols such as these will be provided for us.
I am sure there will be beautiful Hydrangea arrangements surrounded by tea lights - just like these ones (photo taken by me at my friends Morgan and Sara's wedding).
There will be fabulos multi-coloured floral bunting strung up all around the garden just like this set found at giggleberry's shop. (Bunting / Flags / Pennant Strings - Good Folks (cream)Floss is sure to serve some good old english tea in these fantastic flower teacups (found with google images) and then we might use these Garden Party Porcelain Spoons from Elizabeths embellishments (below).
We will probably pass around some flower cupcakes, the recipe is at jellybelly.com
To top it all off we get to the cake - in this case being a Garden Party Dirt Cake is the only way to go. I make this all the time, even for my brothers wedding rehearsal dinner. Unfortunately I have no pictures of mine, (I don't know how that happened) so I found a nice image hereEdible Antics - Having Fun With Food.
I am looking forward to meeting all the other ladies who will be attending the party this weekend - I haven't peeked yet so now I am off to see who has posted their garden parties...
