Summer Dinner on the Porch

























It's a glorious afternoon, maybe even a little bit nippy. You can feel fall in the air today. But to enjoy the final month of summer, we are having supper on the porch. Over a white ruffled cloth from Romancing the Homel, yellow vintage service plates are topped with majolica bird plates. Green depression glass adds a distinctive border to the majolica plate The bunch of zinnias picks up the colors from the plates. Antique green and turquoise painted glasses are holding tea lights and add an ethereal color to the evening. My mother in laws clear pressed glass goblets will be perfect for lemonade. Silk turquoise napkins are tied with a faux leaf banding and a sprig of parsley is tucked inside. Ceramic green pottery birds add a whimsical touch to the tablescape. The bright colors really make a happy table! Be sure to visit http://www.betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ for other inspiring tablescapes.

What a stunning display! Truly love every piece, and I can totally see why you'd be happy to share it with all of us! BRAVO! Can't wait to see more!

I hope you'll stop by my blog to check out my new feature. I've gone back to doing posts on my home, and I've got my newly styled "bar" in the dining room up. Would love to know what you think!

Thanks again for sharing! Stunning.

What a beautiful setting, I love to eat outside. You are right fall is in the air so we need to use our remaining time and eat outside! Zinnias are one of my favorites because they bloom into the fall, so pretty. If you get a chance please stop by for our teatime giveaway. Thanks, Mom from Cottage and Broome.

I love the table covering. It reminds me of the "petticoats" we used to wear beneath our skirts. What fun!
