garden party for one or more

It seems from yesterday's comments that everyone is in the mood for a garden party. It was supposed to rain in Antwerp yesterday but instead we enjoyed beautiful weather so I decided to throw a 'garden party' for one on the balcony. There I was with my latte and Jane Austen, photographing my flowers when an unexpected guest flew into my photo and made itself welcome. Well, hello there! See, when you throw a party someone is bound to show up.

In July some of us have the perfect excuse for throwing a fabulous garden party. Tomorrow is Canada Day, 4th of July is on Monday, the French celebrate Bastille Day on the 14th and the National Day of Belgium is on the 21st. So, what are you waiting for? Start planning and send those invitations now! And remember, have fun with it – stress is forbidden.

And don't forget, today is the last day to enter my giveaway. If you are crazy about Paris then Parisian Chic: A Style Guide by Ines de la Fressange with Sophie Gachet is the book for you. The winner will be announced tomorrow.
