    Just beautiful Tara! I saw those glasses too at our Pier 1, they don’t look like they are plastic at all! I sure like the pillow you picked out, two look great together and the lanterns look so pretty – day and night!

      No, they don’t look like plastic, do they? I really like them…. I am debating whether I should go buy a few more, actually!

    We love those glasses around here. Perfect for outdoor summer entertaining! Everything looks so pretty, especially at night when the lanterns become the star of the show. Can’t wait for more summer evening get-togethers!

    Oh you make me want to run out to Pier 1 today! Love those lanterns and the wine glasses. Did the glasses come from Pier 1 as well? Tara your kids are just adorable as always! My favorite go to dish is a broccoli mandarin orange salad with cashews.

      Yes, the glasses were from Pier 1 as well…. and I have to say that they are probably my favourite purchase from the whole party. We use them all of the time! (And thank you for the compliments on the kiddos… they’re cute MOST of the time! 🙂 )

    I LOVE all of the touches you added to your garden party! Those paper lanterns and the Morrocan style are gorgeous!! I have the stemless wine glass style in glass but the acrylic ones would be perfect for our deck!! Great post Tara!

      Thank you so much, Heather. Honestly, the acrylic glasses get used nearly every single day on the patio. I have not regretted that buy one iota. They’re fantastic!

    I thought I added my item I take to parties…I usually like to take a salad that is either a Pasta Salad that can be kept cold, or a green salad with items to customize to each person’s preference. With or with out various veggies so everyone is happy and not just a tossed salad with items they’ll lick out or just bypass the salad as it’s too much trouble to get out the items they aren’t fond of !

    I came across your blog; it seems that you had a blast in your party.

    The lanterns that you have used are looking stunning and yes this idea of using lantern as an outdoor lighting can never go off.

    The best part of these lanterns is that no one can presume that they are made of plastic.

    Awesome post!!
