PERKING UP THE PATIO FOR SUMMER!


We love this!
It's time for a well-dressed summer table!


We chose a color scheme of black, white and grass green! 
I purchased these chair cushions last year and am so very pleased with them.
Using the color scheme of black and white, almost cream really, it
will be so easy to transition into fall with pops of
pumpkin orange pillows!


You can never have too many melamine serving pieces and place settings if you entertain outdoors.
These sets have come in so handy for special occasions, holidays and just having grilled burgers and hot dogs by the pool. We never have to worry about broken glass or china and nowadays, they come in such fun and colorful patterns.


I cannot wait until summer rolls around and we are sipping on Peach Mojito's using those
fresh Fredricksburg peaches and fresh mint! 


Southern style combines gracious luxury
but it always has a touch of fun! 



How about serving a tangy pasta salad, buttermilk grilled chicken and grandmother's baked beans!


As the sun sets here in Texas this summer.....you know where to find us....
We'll leave the light on.......

  3. Beautiful! I think your right that it will be easy to transition this pretty table into autumn with some pumpkin colors!

    I love to eat outdoors in the summer! It gets hot and humid here so I am hoping for a new cover for my deck gazebo! Thinking through a new color scheme for the chairs etc, for this year, too!

  4. I would love to join you around that charming table. I'm going to look for some melamine on your recommendation. We have stairs to navigate on our way to the deck and we have had accidents with dishes.

  5. Your patio table and setting looks so lovely and fresh and I love lime or apple green. I like the idea of using black and white as basics to other colours throughout the seasons. I also use melamine and have for years. There are so many beautiful patterns out there now and it's hard to tell if they are china or plastic. Enjoy!

  6. So pretty! I haven't seen a square shaped table like that before and I really like it. You sure did set a beautiful table.

    Oh by the way, last year we got peaches at Ham Orchards in Terrell. It's a fun place and the peaches were wonderful.
