Labor Day

We ended the summer with a cookout today.  Since I have an abundance of herbs in my garden, I placed a few at each place setting.

(Edit:  That stray mark on the plate isn't a hair.  Its the same raffia tied to the stems.  Thanks for pointing out the suspicious object Mom!)

My parents stole the  hanging lantern idea from Pottery Barn who, earlier in the summer, was selling a rope thingy to hang lanterns.  Their incarnation looks better than mine since they had a more rustic thick, nautical rope like Pottery Barn used on hand, but we had white rope so that's what I used.

Summer is officially over.  I'm a little sad to see the season end, but there's always something new to look foward to.  Fall is my favorite season.  I hope everyone had a fun summer and a great holiday weekend.

Hmmmm, now where are those mercury glass pumpkins I stored away last year?


  1. Your herbs are wonderful. I grow a few different kinds myself and love doing other things with them besides just cooking with them.

  2. love your labor day place settings! and the lanterns hung by ropes was really cute

  3. Cute settings! I'm going to miss summer, but not the 103 degree weather...Fall is a beautiful season.
