{blogger backyard party ...}

Happy Monday! The sun was shinning this weekend and I'm feeling quite refreshed & ready to start a new week. Did you get outdoors at all? We spent a good amount of time on walks with the puppy, one of my favorite past times!

Speaking of outdoors, I've got fabulous photos of a dreamy backyard party I attended at my lovely friend Tracey Ayton's home here in Vancouver. Tracey is the most amazing photographer, and her & her hubby transformed their yard into an amazing outdoor entertaining space. Trust me when I say you NEED to visit her blog and see the before & afters! After all the hard work they did, Tracey threw a blogger backyard party that made the cover of last months Style at Home magazine {all images via Tracey Ayton Photography}:

Ah it's all so beautiful! The limelight hydrangeas, the gas firepit, that amazing weathered wooden table! It's all so good, as are the gorgeous pics that Tracey took.

My friend Karla of Kerrisdale Design Inc., prepared the most scrumptious appies and dinner, as well as the styling for the shoot. She did a fantastic job, makes me hungry just looking at these photos again.

Tracey hung vintage-inspired string lights from Restoration Hardware over the dining area, they were so charming, especially when dusk finally hit. I just ordered some for my own backyard {they are currently on sale from $179 to $144 for 50 feet}.

What a fabulous event! A big thank you to Tracey for all her hard work in putting it together, and allowing me to take part in it!! Thanks to Karla for putting together a smashing dinner & to Style at Home for the lovely feature and inclusion of the blogger links of all of those who attended.

Doesn't it inspire you to start working on your own backyard?

Thanks Nancy for posting this .... I am so glad you made it, you were certainly a big part of the "good times" that night. I look forward to more. Perhaps we'll get together just for a casual dinner and not have some crazy photographer trying to get the shot :-)

It is amazing how they transformed their backyard for a party. I love all the subtle and neutral colors. The lights were my favorite part. They gave a classy glow and were not too harsh or too dim. The picture of the appetizer is making me hungry.
