I continue to play with this feature, I want it too look as good as I feel about it. Anyway, this girl looks like she is ready for a hip party. A little avant-garde perhaps?

I will start with my plants this time. Textural and color inspired, I choose a lime Zinnia, Angelina Sedum, Black Ajuga, Colocasia with lime ribs, Equisetum, ‘Lance Corporal’ Persicaria, False spirea, and white Coneflower.
1. Zinnia Benary’s Lime Green, 2. angelina sedum, 3. Ajuga ‘Black Scallop’, 4. Elephant Ears – Colocasia, 5. Equisetum x ferrissi, Jardin des Plantes, Paris, France 2008, 6. Chevron Stripes, 7. Heucheralla in my Zen garden, 8. Sorbaria sorbifolia ‘Sem’ – Garden Splendor, 9. Double White Coneflower ‘Coconut Lime’ (Echinacea purpurea)
I love a few accents. Like this garden orb from Bauer Pottery.
The scene needs some fun party lighting. I found these at Cultural Star. I think they compliment the orb nicely.
Over at Material Girl Blog, I discovered some great outdoor fabric from Marimekko that would further enhance our chartreuse garden party design and pull in a few of the accent colors from the dress (yellow and black).
All are available through Textile Art.
And Finally….a party needs chairs and these are about the chicest things I have seen lately. They are available from Heal’s (which is one of those great stores that makes me miss the UK terribly).
So there it is. Is there anything you would add? What do you think?
