On the Porch with Drapes

Nothing was here, below, a few days ago.  

The porch, below, when we began.

The corner 'before', above, and 'after', below.

Lamp, above, seen from the garden, below.

 Of course you want to look in the window, above.

Also, how are you hanging these drapes on the porch?

What fabrics? What about wetness, mill dew?

Give us a tutitoral on selecting fabric, prints to be used, how to hang!!!

Ethel, have called Susanne for the info.

The drapes are silk, and were stitched by her team. They were hung with plumbing pipe.

The pipes are placed atop the columns with a small nail tapped in to hold the rods from rolling off.

Penny McHenry Hydrangea Festival is typically held the 1st weekend in June. Don't know if their website has the exact dates for 2014 yet.
