A hint of whimsy, a little spice, and a table full of the most delicious eats you ever did see. This bohemian inspired garden party is hitting the mark in all the right places. Jenni Kayne, popular fashion designer, teamed up with Eye Swoon and the results are loveliness embodied. With photos from Yayo Ahumanda, there's a whole gallery that's simply overloaded with more!

Designer and blogger, Jenni Kayne, came together with Eye Swoon's Athena Calderone to create the perfect late-Spring Garden Party. The menu and decor combined to create the perfect event and design elements used from One King's Lane provided incredible detail and overall fantastic results.

Folding tables were draped with a custom Rachel Craven flax linen tablecloth with gold stitching down the center, accented with a yellow washed linen tablecloth from Terrain on top. Bentwood chairs with white painted feet from Yeah! Rentals surrounded each table.

Variopinte enamel plates and bowls in white and mint and Jenni's favorite mismatched antique flatware graced the table Liberty Print napkins, that we made using the fabric from the Jenni Kayne Pre-Fall Collection, added the perfect floral element.

One Kings Lane elements were also used on the table, including Villeroy & Boch glassware and Pinched Glass Decanters. Stemless Spanish wine glasses from Jenni Kayne Home in Montecito was always used.

On the serving table, several terracotta water pitchers from Bitters Co., and two rustic Best Before Baskets, to hold the silverware, were displayed.

Donned with floral wristlets, the guest list included Jessica de Ruiter, Lawren Howell, Liseanne Frankfurt, Nicole Simone, Kristen Caissie, Barrett Prendergast, and Shiva Rose, who's calm and quiet backyard created the perfect setting for the luncheon.

Floral arrangements were created by Kristen of Moon Canyon Design, who made perfectly-themed centerpieces complete with wild blueberry, cafe au lait dahlias, white ball dahlias, astilbe, scabiosa, chocolate cosmos, sunflowers, blushing bride protea, peonies, and hosta leaves, with a low stone compote for the vessel.

Peonies, astilbe, and dahlias were displayed on the serving table inside vintage glass Belgian jars and on the serving table, placed bundles of variegated hydrangea in a Wicker Pool Basket from One Kings Lane.

The meal, by Barrett from Valleybrink Road contained perfectly seasonal elements including Farmers Market Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette, savory Avocado Toast with Watermelon Radish and Chive, and for dessert, a scrumptious Nectarine, Peach, and Blueberry Crisp.
