New Tabletop Collection from Southern Living and Ballard Designs

Happy Thursday, everyone! Hope you had a Happy May Day; and you're enjoying some warm, Spring temperatures. I know my blogging has been sporadic over the past few weeks; but, we have a lot going on in our household. My "baby" just recently had her senior prom, we will be packing up my oldest daughter, who is wrapping up her freshman year in college, and we are preparing for my daughter's graduation. I have been spending most of my time freshening up the garden areas and haven't had much time to post.


While catching up on some of my blog reading this evening, I discovered that Southern Living and Ballard Designs have partnered to release a new tabletop collection.  To read more, check out Kimberly Schlegel Whitman's blog.  Kimberly is Editor-At-Large for Southern Living magazine.

Like many of you, I am a fan of both Southern Living magazine and Ballard Designs; and I am sure this will be an exciting collection!! For all of you great tablescapers out there, these could be some wonderful additions to your collections!

I hope you're all having a great week! I hope to have some new posts for you soon! Thanks for visiting!

  2. Oh, regarding the blue Dollar Tree goblets...I really like them. I also have the green ones...the blue ones are not as tall as the green ones. Cherry Kay

  9. I see I'm not the only one who is crazy busy right now! May is almost as bad as Christmas. Weddings, graduations, end of school year activities. I'm giving my hubby a big grad party. I so wish you lived near me so you could come work on my outdoor area!!
    Loved your idea on the planter with drinks!

  14. That would be deadly to me! I could order everything I see from Ballard! And Southern Living is always fabulous too. What fun events in your children's lives. Our life has been busy too. Glad to know because I was wondering why it was so hard to blog lately.

  17. I love Ballard. Southern Living is a wonderful magazine. I am sure my husband would hate for me to even view the new collection. Maybe, I need to get more creative.
    Anyway, Happy Mother's day....
