Guest Peace: Lola’s Market

 Linda is a Southern California native and a passionate party planner in her spare time. Every event she holds is perfected down the the smallest detail.  She has a beautiful eye for color and shabby-chic, rustic decor. She is a loving wife, mother of 6 and has 7 grandchildren with one on the way!  That’s a lot of parties!

Our little Lola loves our small garden in the backyard and that inspired me to create this party for her.  She loves the flowers, orange tree, tomatoes and herbs. She likes to pick the fresh basil, mint, and grape tomatoes and pretend she’s making soup!

The bunting was made by my husband, Reid using a 1/2 yard of burlap, fabric paint, alphabet stencils, a stencil brush and some twine.

My daughter Sarah assembled these huge, gorgeous, paper flowers from a Martha Stewart flower kit.
  Outside, we taped vegetable seed packs to the patio beams for decoration.

For centerpieces, we used kale, tomato & pansy plants and wrapped the pots in fabric.

To add to the fresh farm theme, we served our veggies in berry baskets and the raisins, candy corn and chips in bushel baskets.

The food table was decorated with fresh flowers, crates and chalkboard signs to add to the rustic feel and the lucky kiddos went home with a favor bag full of yummy snacks.

To finish it all off, we ordered a green cake and added fresh flowers the day-of.  Happy Birthday Lola!
