Dinner and Fireworks!

Our dear friends live on a hill in a grand house. 
We usually spend the evening of the 4th of July with them.

Each time I visit my friend D., I get a least one great idea. This evening it was that large cut glass flower vase behind my head on the mantle. Instead of flowers she added a candle inside!

When I came home I immediately got out the biggest vase I have and added a Glade candle in cashmere wood scent.

This is my beautiful and extremely talented friend D. with me on one of the terraces overlooking her north gardens. It is very difficult to make grand double height rooms feel warm and welcoming but D. accomplishes this task so very well. Each room in her home is an absolute delight to the senses.

This was a really delicious banana pudding made by one of the other guests. 
It is a fourth of July tradition here in the south!

I am wearing a beautiful navy blazer from Dalitika over a white tank top from Coldwater Creek. The multistrand bluegreen necklace is from Stein Mart. The red pants are Nine West jeggings and the shoes are by Adrienne Vittadini both from T.J.Maxx.

This beautiful light weight navy blazer with a sheen to the fabric was a gift from Dalitika. I got lots of compliments on it!  This jacket will be one of my favorites for years to come.

 Dalitika offers hand-picked thrift collections that suit women in our 40's, 50's, 60's, women with layers of activities and interests, that want to look beautiful, yet are too busy enjoying life to spend hours in the mall. What a great idea!

I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Thank you for reading!
