Monkey grass is in bloom. You might know it as Liriope.
This weekend we were having lunch outside with friends and ended up having a lengthy conversation about monkey grass.
We decided to get together for dinner the next night at our house.
I used a pewter candy dish for nuts and big footed bowl drinks.
I was feeling cheeky and thought it would funny to make the centerpiece out of monkey grass.
I used extra long purple candles I've had for ages. I've almost thrown them away so many times because I couldn't imagine ever doing a table in purple.
My estate sale Rosenthal china tied in perfectly!
Herbs on the napkins were the finishing touch.
I put the silverware on the wrong sides AGAIN.
Drew had to get into the act. So he set the kids table.
He found inspiration in the tie dye napkins we made last week. (We used napkins that were stained that were headed for the trash.)
He insisted on having bread plates too. And he kept snatching the candles from the adult table.
He did his floral arrangement all by himself. Watch out Eddie!
We all had a wonderful night. It was the perfect way to end the summer.
