Well hello my friends welcome to Centerpiece Wednesday Linky party #225! I hope you all enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend! I sure did! We got a lot done around the house and hosted a big family and friends lake day and BBQ a the Kottage. It was a blast!
So many fabulous tablescapes, home tours and recipes from last week. I can’t wait to share which ones stood out to me!
Karins Kottage Happenings
Before I share the highlights from last weeks Centerpiece Wednesday here is what I have been up to. My hubby and I were busy on Friday! He was re-painting the pergola and I was sewing new cushions for my patio chairs and I also bought some new cushion covers!
I don’t know about you but the sun just bleaches out my cushions so quickly! You can’t really tell from these photos but the pillows are really faded from when we first bought them.
I found these fabulous solid color cushion covers on Amazon in lots of different colors and bought some to basically slipcover my faded pillows!
They were $11.99 for two!
The aqua colored covers are a bit too big for the pillows I put in them but I will add more fluff and they will be perfect!
The pillow covers and a new rug from At Home made a huge difference!
I also made some new covers for my outdoor dining chairs in Navy and white Striped canvas.
You might remember seeing this fabric at my daughters reception, I made all the runners for the tables.
Do you see the wood table in the photo? My hubby actually added wood planks over the metal table. He did it the same way he did our dining table here.
Gosh we had so much food and family for our Memorial Day BBQ! I think there were 20 of us!
I made my favorite dessert! Ina Garten’s apple crostata. OH it is so good! You can find the recipe here.
Everyone enjoyed some lake time and paddle boarding. A fun idea is to use a paddle board as a table for an outdoor party like I did for this lake party.
Highlights from last weeks Centerpiece Wednesday Linky party
Ok enough about me let me share what stood out to me from last weeks party! Ladies you are all seriously so amazing…I know I say that all the time but it is sooooo true!
Actually three bloggers were involved because Leslie over at Feed under my table did the food for this spectacular citrus tablescape.
Rachelle over on My Hubbard Home is sharing her summer home tour with yellow and grey accent decor and it is just beautiful! Her scheme is just says sunshine and happy days to me.
Who loves a good quiche recipe? This one from Organized island not only sounds amazing but looks so pretty!
It is filled with long asparagus spears, tomatoes, green onions and cream. Heavenly!
I love how she kept the asparagus long and did not chop them up.
Deb Beez Buzz is sharing this amazing Bee themed tablescape!
Everything from the glassware, flatware, dishes, napkin rings down to the place card all have the darling bee theme!
You just have to go see it!
