I am so excited to be joining Tablescape Thursday today @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/.
But first, I have a confession to make..I have been holding out on you! I’ve been waiting for just the right time to break out my outdoor table setting! I wanted to wait until everything greened up a bit and began to bloom. So today after cleaning up outside and putting it all together it was finally time!
I have purchased several outdoor dish’s that I have wanted to show you for some time. I say several because I bought a set of four dinner plates and four salad plates that coordinated. Then later I found 4 more salad plates that I loved in another pattern and could use with the dinner plates as well. So today you will see the original dinner plates paired with the new pattern of salad plates. I think you will see why I fell in love with the newest ones immediately.
We will be dining outdoors this evening!
Moving in a little closer now, I have to brag on my centerpiece. Aren’t they beautiful? This is what I was waiting for..my beautiful Hydrangeas. They make such a lovely setting!
I used my two smaller crystal hurricane candle holders for the flower vases.
Just gorgeous this time of year! I love these flowers so much! Don’t you?
I love the black iron cutwork “look” of these votive candle holders from the Dollar Tree.
My newest yard sale bargain stemware was an unexpected surprise addition. I just had to work them in with this setting and I think they compliment the Hydrangeas beautifully!
The black and white check napkins were another beach outlet purchase. The monogrammed flatware actually was a great find a Tuesday Morning. And now for the plates…
The plastic dinner plates are from Walmart. They are part of the Better Homes and Gardens summer decor. I just fell in love with them when they came out. I purchased four of these and four of the salad plates. My salad plates are the same pattern but lime green and white only. Cute, cute, cute!
But as cute as these are, I don’t think come close to the second set of salad plates I purchased. I fell in love with these birds the minute I saw them at Tuesday Morning. The plates are melamine and a bit more durable and absolutely fantastic! The first plate was in the shade, but the rest show how beautiful they are.
I brought out these pillows I have upstairs on an old wicker set. I love plaid and made these myself some years ago. I was thrilled when I remembered they would match this setting so well.
I hope you enjoyed this beautiful outdoor table scape as much as I do! I sure had fun putting this one together today. Now, I just need to go get that dinner started and I’m ready!
Leave me a comment if you please, I sure love hearing from you!
