These are some of the gorgeous zinnias that I bought at Whole Foods in Alpharetta yesterday. As I was ooing and awing over them, the floral manager told me they were locally grown in Armuchee, Georgia at Stolen Flowers Farm.
I went to their website to get some more information, but it was down for re-design. So, I then found their Facebook page and took this image from their postings. It seems that they only sell to wholesalers, but that wasn't completely clear. I'd love to have a tour someday and see the farm.
So, while Mr. Pressed Pants grilled the fish, I set a very quick ten minute table with these as the star, and I put them in this faux bois cement vase.
Here's the table I came up with. Simple, cheery, and easy.
I started with a cream linen tablecloth, a twig placemat, and a Zgallerie scalloped plate. Then I added these Cynthia Crowley napkins and a striped mini-pumpkin. These orange glasses and cream wooden handled flatware reinforced the narrow orange/cream palate .
The center of the table held some antlers, a cement faux bois candle holder, and some faux bois salt and pepper shakers.
Then I added a rattan wine holder and the table was set in less than ten minutes.
Then the fish was done and we dined.
We are lucky that the weather has been so beautiful this weekend. These orange pillows made things oh, so comfy. We sat and sat and sat so we could enjoy the weather and each other.
This is the other side of this round deck......
and this is what it overlooks. Can you see the beginning of fall in the trees? We're tiptoeing into my favorite season. We're probably done kayaking, but we'll enjoy the lake all year around.
