Tablescape Thursday…Dining Al Fresco…
If I were an International Jet-Setter, I would have a rooftop penthouse in New York City! The penthouse would have an outdoor patio like this one, except I would have lots of colorful blooming flowers in beautiful urns all around. Hydrangeas, roses, lavender, geraniums, pansies, peonies, lilacs, daisies and more…and of course, a gardener! The patio would have covered areas with french daybeds and vintage bistro sets and lots of candlelight…and billowy gauzy white curtains enveloping them. If…I were an International Jet-Setter…which I am not!
Now these tablescapes and settings I can do! Because… I am a woman who loves to set a pretty table outside in the garden or on the deck…both of which I DO have! Lucky me!
Isn’t this tablesetting from Martha Stewart so adorable?! Bird nest centerpieces filled with peonies running down the center of the table…romantic casual elegance! Then a smaller version has been set atop each place setting and is used to prop up the place card…romantic casual elegance…all the way!
This last pic from Williams-Sonoma looks like it’s set for one of my favorites…an Elegant Summer Buffet! Just look at those hydrangea! It looks like we’ve missed the main course and have arrived just in time for dessert….hmmmm…that was great planning now, wasn’t it?!
Thank you for joining me on my “al fresco” journey…next week will be a real treat, I promise!
Now…you must go on over to Between Naps on the Porch, say hello to our FABulous hostess, Susan and then stop by each of the Tablescape Divas that are participating in this most fun event!
