My husband was grilling pork chops, so I set up a table by the pool.
When I saw this tablecloth at an estate sale, I HAD to buy it, since I'm the self-appointed savior of lovingly stitched needlework.
Our place settings started with white metal, lacy edged chargers.
It's probably been ten years since I found these salad plates (Audrey) on sale at Pier 1.
A flea market was my source for the dinner plates (Country French Ironstone).
I've had the napkins and napkin rings too long to remember where I bought them, but I'm sure they were on sale (because I never buy anything that isn't on sale).
Towle Old Master was our silver choice for our wedding.
The steak knives were from a long-ago estate sale (Aynsley).
I found the blue water goblets at an antique store and the pink plastic wine stems were at an estate sale.
The metal bread basket belonged to my mother.
Cobalt blue salt and pepper shakers, covered in silver filigree were also an estate sale find.
A Homer Laughlin platter from an estate sale holds ramekins for salad dressing.
A colored glass lantern looks pretty in the day time, but when the sun sets, and the candle is lit, it's beautiful. Flanking the lantern are cobalt blue juice glasses I got at an estate sale.
I cut a blue, pink, and white Hydrangea to put in each juice glass.
I'm glad you came by to check out our alfresco dining. I thank each of you who left lovely comments about my health on my previous post, and I am so appreciative of your prayers as I face this blip in my life.
