Dreaming of... A Summer Croquet Party

Speaking of blue... have you seen Tory Burch's Southampton home in this month's Vogue?

Blue heaven! When I saw the photos it made me think of a friend of mine who has a remodeling project in her future (you know who you are). So much to be inspired by in this "sprawling Gatsby-era manor"... you can see it here if you haven't picked up a copy yet.

But what really caught my eye was Tory's lush green lawn. It sent me dreaming of a summertime croquet party.

With summer still a few months away we've got plenty of time to find the perfect hat...

I would need a new white dress...

And we'll have to remember where we packed away the croquet set...and brush up on the rules.


It would be the perfect excuse to find some new garden furniture...

Because we'll need a shady spot to kick back with a gin & tonic...

Who wants to help me plan a summer croquet bash?

  4. I am giving up on having my favorite season, winter, here but am looking forward to my little garden of herbs and tomatoes and an early crop of lettuce. These pictures are gorgeous and I love the gardens here. Ok, I am getting in the spring mood here. Love the croquet set and the adorable shares and furniture.
    Happy Thursday, Jeanne.

  7. Oh my, it is snowing like crazy outside my window so yes, I am in--for a croquet party in the Caribbean or Australia!

    Jeanne, those woven chairs in the second photo--they are famous aren't they? I once saw them for nothing at the antiques show at the Charlety Stadium in Paris and Remi wouldn't buy them!! I knew it was a mistake!
