I don’t know about the rest of you, but our temperatures this week are so much more pleasant than what we are accustomed to in July. So, when I got home from work, I decided that we’d sit on the back porch to enjoy one of our favorite summertime meals.
The fruity tablecloth features strawberries, raspberries, cherries, lemons, and oranges, with swirls of checkered ribbons flowing among the fruits.
No flatware required for Bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches with chips on the side (this was not one of our healthy meal nights!). The plates for our sandwich are melamine (Le Cadeaux). Under the sandwich plate, I used another melamine plate (Moda Home)
There are strawberry vines growing on our napkin rings.
We used plastic stemware (perfect for outdoor dining).
A couple of ladybugs joined us to offer salt and pepper.
This was a last-minute table, so for a quick and easy centerpiece, one of my enamel canisters holds a faux artichoke (I wish I had a faux strawberry vine, but it would be even better if I had a real strawberry vine.)
I served potato chips in a fruit stand basket.
For dessert, we ate fresh sliced strawberries over a dollop of ice cream. Yum! I used my Carnival Glass green compotes and saucers for the dessert.
I love a BLT, but it tastes even better when I eat it outside in perfect weather. By the way, I think it’s okay to be fruity sometimes.
It was great to have you visit our back porch. laurie
