I love these John Derian British Seaweed decoupage plates! They are so pretty and I was so excited to get my first one for Christmas!

I hope to collect all nine and hang them just like this in our dining room, above our buffet. Yesterday I found them online at Horchow for a heck of a sale price but of course they were sold out. Of course.

Since I am the proud owner of one, I wanted to display it without putting any holes in the wall. That will have to wait until I own at least 3 more – hah! Here’s how I have displayed my first one and it is working out perfectly. Hopefully it doesn’t take me 8 more Christmases to get the other plates!

Today, I’m currently coveting decoupage plates from John Derian.

I love the whimsy of the plates as well as the purpose and function of them. They are pretty enough to hang on the wall but also extremely functional to sit on the counter and hold your favorite pieces of jewelry or some coral! This particular one is on my birthday wish list…I’ll let you know if my collection gets started!

I am so ready to entertain outdoors!! When we moved in last year, we were so busy doing projects and renovations that we missed the opportunity to host barbecues and have friends over whenever we wanted. I can’t wait to make up for that this year!

I would love to have this galvanized party bucket and stand from Pottery Barn to hold our drinks outside. The tall buckets are nice because you don’t have to bend over to get a drink if you’re in a cute sundress. Hah!

I would love to serve grilled burgers and chicken on these super cute melamine plates from Target! I am in love with navy right now and these blue and white Ikat dinnerware sets are so adorable. They are super cheap too! $9.99 for a set of four plates or bowls! This screams summer to me.

I love the blue plates because you can mix and match them with anything including these John Derian for Target appetizer plates. Adorable! You know that I love me some JD and JD for Target? At $7.98 for a set of 8!?! Well, yes! Of course I ordered a set of these. How could I resist? I love the design and the cheery yellow on the edge.

And of course I have to throw in some orange for my fake, in my head, entertaining dinner! What summer isn’t complete without a pop of your favorite color? I love this orange tray from Crate and Barrel for anything but especially love it for serving fresh mojitos in mason jars to my guests. At only $24.95 it is a heck of a price as well!
