I’m so excited to have you here today for my Sunday Faves along with Cindy and Annie! I have my sweet friend from Florida, Ana Rose Alfonso showing us how to create an exotic orchid arrangement, a spicy salty watermelon salad, and my sister and friend modeling some resort wear!
Spicy Watermelon, Herb and Feta Salad
I got the idea for this salad from this darling appetizer that we had at Juliet’s house (Make Mine A Spritzer) recently. She served it with mint, balsamic glaze, and cute toothpick skewers.
That got me thinking about how I could make this into a larger size dish for a first course!!!
So here are the uniform watermelon and feta cheese blocks stacked, with herbs (rosemary and basil), and drizzled with balsamic glaze.
My secret ingredient: lightly sprinkled all over…
Have you tried it?
The Flight Attendant On HBO
This is a fast-paced dark comedy that takes you to places like Bangkok and New York. We just started it and it’s grim, somewhat disturbing but pretty good!
Creating An Exotic Orchid Arrangement With Ana Rose
My sweet friend, Ana Rose, is a floral designer with a specialty in natural Florida materials. We talked about her work while we were on vacation together in Spain and I asked if I could feature her here.
Following are her notes…or you could watch the YouTube tutorial below.
Ana Rose is using an aged terracotta pot from Campo de Fiori.
So creative! Thanks, Ana Rose!
Over 50 Resortwear
How cute are my friend Dorothy and my sister, Teresa? I took this photo of them at the farmhouse we rented in Sitges, Spain (all about that in a post later this week).
Dorothy says her comfortable Joie linen dress can be dressed up or down (here she is wearing it for a boat ride on the Mediterranean later that day). It has pockets! This is a size extra-small.
My sister is wearing an Anthropologie top that I gave her as a gift. Size small. Teresa is wearing it with great Vuori travel/exercise pants. Size medium. They are lightweight, don’t wrinkle, and come in three colors. I want these! Her sneakers are by Cole Haan from Nordstorm Rack.
And that’s how to create an exotic orchid arrangement, spicy watermelon feta salad, and resort wear for over 50!
Let’s check out what Cindy and Annie have for us!
