Creative Garden Ideas PARTY!!!!

I'm really excited to see all the creative gardening ideas. Mine involves decorating with plates and shells. Both are super cheap to find at yard sales, flea markets, and of course, Goodwill.
I go straight to the 'dishes' isle when I 'm at Goodwill as I have found all sorts of cute plates. The plates have to have a floral design to go in the garden. I've also decorated potted plants with broken plate pieces. As for seashells, they are a super way to fill space in a garden. This year I filled my birdbath with shells as I never seem to be able to keep the water clean for the birds.

Now I'm outta here to check everyone else's party post.



  1. Love the shells in the birdbath.

  2. Love your pics. Makes me want to skip work today to work in the yard. :) xoxo, Joanna

  3. I love the little dish accents ~ lovely touch! I think I need to try that ~ thanks for sharing.

  4. This is a great idea - and I love the way you have the vegetables planted ... great idea! Beautiful all the way around! Great job! Thnks for stopping by Color Outside the Lines and please, take part in Share a Garden, Sunday! Your gardens are too nice not to.

  5. I love the idea of the broken plates in the garden!

  6. Everything looks lovely in your garden Mandy. I have a stack of old plates awaiting placement around the garden too - have writing on them so thought they would look cool and different.

    Your birdbath idea is good - love shells and have a large shell shaped bowl of them on my patio table this Summer.

    Have a fun weekend.

  7. I love the dishes in the garden! Very clever!
