Celebrating the bounty of Summer

There is a certain something about the start of August and the ever looming presence of Autumn right around the corner.  The days are still warmed by the rays of the sun while the nights have a crispness to them, hinting of the frosts not soon behind.  Schools are back in session this week in Arizona meaning the streets will be quieter, as well as my own home.  And everywhere you look, the flowers are in bloom; the squash have shed their flowers and are growing into their beautiful yellows, greens and oranges; tree branches lay heavy with their fruit and the various bushes are beginning to show their first berries; a true celebration of the bounty of Summer.  In my mind, this means it is the perfect time of year to head outside for your Summer closing parties making sure to grab as many fresh fruits and vegetables as you can while they are still fresh and not tainted by a can, jar or bag.  If you are looking to put together a stunning, garden party then make sure to head over to Collabor88's Birthday round, which opened yesterday, and pick up this absolutely AMAZING new dining collection from unKindness.

The Garden Soiree set comes in one set for the table, and then an accessory collection. The benches come in 3 colors and one plain, and the place settings come in 3 colors with the branches and candles the entire collection comes together to make a perfect dining nook in any backyard, especially when surrounded by the Wrought Iron Fences, also from unKindness.  I had to put up a couple trees from HPMD for a few lights and of course the fantastic Dreamer and Festival Lights from CIRCA.  I had to venture off my land to set up this gorgeous little area, but you can bet I will be taking a few things off to add this all to the land before the first frost hits!
