A Rooftop Dinner in Mexico


This enchanting rooftop dinner was put together by two talented & creative friends while on vacation in Mexico... Lillian of Unstitched and Danni of Oh, Hello Friend.  They were so dedicated to bringing this scene to life that they brought their beloved found objects across the border with them and collected the rest on site.  Coupled with the beautiful ocean view from the roof, they truly captured the perfect setting for a sunset dinner.  Read on below for more from Lillian...

From Lillian: When we were in Mexico, Danni and I set up a rooftop dinner on top of our house for us and our boys. The view was gorgeous – it overlooked the ocean and the rooftops of all the other houses in the community. I brought my dining table set, Danni brought her bubble machine, and we both brought little things we’ve found at flea markets and thrift shops to decorate the tablescape. Danni and I walked around the community with scissors and collected flowers to put in ball jars (the boys were a little embarrassed about that.  And I was so excited to try the mini bundt cakes that Danni and Nick brought – these were the ones they handed out at their wedding! The objects on our table, as you can see (all vintage!) – ball jars, Baby Ben clock, old candles, a milk jar, mini cake stand, a gold rock, a small wooden box, a thatched silverware holder, a lace table cloth, mismatched flower plates and teacups from thrift shops, an owl figurine, a bronze bell, those flower spikes for place card holders, and a perpetual calendar (which Danni collects!). Most of those were from Danni…she has such beautiful things! We set up around sunset, so it was perfect lighting and perfect weather.

Those chairs! I have been looking for some for a while, but haven't been lucky enough to find any. Also, the flowers are so beautiful!
