Le Jardin with Provence Garden Dinnerware


I’m dans le jardin, aka Potting Shedwith Kim Parker Provence Garden dinnerware.


Provence Garden by Kim Parker for Mikasa, brings the vivid beauty of the garden to the table with a bright palette of florals.


Ball jar are filled with flowers from the garden and a few blooms from the grocery store.


My jar love rivals my dish love. I have all three colors of the limited edition Ball Heritage Collection Jars~ blue, spring green, and purple.


A bottle / mug rack adorned with a bird hangs in my Potting Shed for easy access to the jars for vases.


The purple jars were the last in the three-year series of Heritage Collection Jars, introduced beginning in 2013, commemorating the 100th anniversary of the development of a series of jars, designed by the Ball brothers.


Sunflowers, a nod to Provence, along with purple statice from the grocery store, fill purple Ball jars. . .


Along with a little greenery from the shrubs and some blooms from my butterfly bush.


Blue Ball jars are filled with Endless Summer Hydrangea, Bee Balm, Hosta blooms and greenery.


Mikasa Gourmet Basics Blossom Flatware adds a modern floral vine motif paired with a colorful floral runner. . .


And woven water hyacinth placemats add additional petal power, serving up and framing the dishes.


Green Ball jars bouquets are filled with hydrangea, bee balm, butterfly bush and hosta blooms.


The winner of my Garden to the Table Dinnerware Giveaway is Rita C!

Rita, I’ll be in touch by email and get your dishes to you.

Thanks to all who entered.
