Oh dear I can only see the last photo but it's fabulous. I love your outdoor table Laurie. The layering and all the color is great!
I've not been able to get around like usual but hope to get things under control at this old house soon so I can be a proper blogger again :0)

Hi Laurie!

What a fun summer picnic/outdoor BBQ table!! I love your idea for using bandanas as napkins! And I like the just the small flowery touches on the glasses and napkin rings. My favorite thing on the whole table is your milk bottle carrier. I have one almost like it that I keep all my colored pencils and paint brushes in. I thought I had shown a picture of it before, but I guess not.... only a wee corner of it shows up in one of my photos. http://patchofzinnias.blogspot.com/2010/02/today-was-awesome.html

Sarah said...

What, no words? Well, this table does speak for itself. Love the bright primary colors and that it is a picnic in the yard. Great idea with the individual round metal trays at each place setting. This may be one of my favorites tables you've done, Laurie. It makes me happy! ~ Sarah
