An outdoor table, dinner and clouds

One night last week, I set a table outside on the deck. I just found these dishes at the grocery store and knew I wanted some for the deck. Plus they were priced right! We had chicken breasts, marinated in a mixture of 2 salad dressings. I used a little Italian and then mostly Herb and Garlic marinade from my grocery store. The flavor was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!! The breasts were juicy, tender and so good!I just love these dishes; they are melamine but so pretty for Fall!!! The green flatware is a perfect match!
 I brought one of my candle holders out for some ambiance:)
 Paper napkins are essential outside. I just found some PERFECT paper ones and will be using them now. I will try to share them soon. They really look pretty with these dishes.
 My Dollar Tree goblets go so well; leaves on the plates and goblets.

 We noticed that the sky was so pretty while we were eating.
 And then the moon appeared.
 Our view of the pond from the deck.

 Beautiful, Mother Nature:)

 Boneless chicken breasts, pasta salad,
 and cranberries.
 Now seeing some pink.

 Glorious! We have some spectacular sunsets here and LOVE every one. We never could see the sunset at the old house. Just glorious.
Hope you all had a beautiful weekend. We had real FALL weather. It was 59 degrees when Joe and I left for breakfast Sunday morning!!!!!!!! It warmed up to the high 60's which is pretty cool for this time of year here. But the day turned out to be beautiful, low 70's and bright sunshine. I am partying with:
