Hi! I’m Alexandra Hedin – a lifestyle and entertaining expert from the Pacific Northwest. I provide inspiration, recipes, and crafts for creating a lovely life. It doesn’t take much to make everyday lovely – or to have fun. And isn’t that what life is about? All week I’ll be here showing you how I threw together a little springtime affair that takes only a little thought and some good friends.
All week I have shown you how to host the perfect little soiree outdoors. But what if your outdoors is a little lacking? Our new house has a few problem spots – and, like most problem spots, the major one seems to be right where we want to sit.
In lieu of real clay pots (wrong look) or stunning metal containers (expensive) I created a solution that fits our more modern aesthetic and was ridiculously cheap.
- 2 foot length of 6 inch wide PVC pipe
- 12 inch length of rebar
- potting soil
- assorted grasses or ferns
I hope you’ve had as much fun as I have this week! And I hope you’ll go outside and entertain. Have a great spring!
