My First Outdoor Table Here!!

I haven't posted an outdoor table at this house yet. We eat outside all the time but it is usually very casual and nothing fancy. But I continue my sorting and purging and came across this tablecloth that I had totally forgotten about. I could never use it outside at the old house cause of the umbrella in the table. I love this cloth and thought I would do a table around it. I hope you like it. It is a pale yellow background with pink flowers and touches of greens.  I am using my  yellow dinner plates and these pink flower salad plates.

 I remembered I had these napkins and they go beautifully with the cloth. I gathered them in my grapevine rings for lots of texture.
 Simple cream handled flatware.
 My watering can S and P  add a special touch.
 This is our view while we eat:):)
 My pink gerber daisy is putting out new flowers....soon.
 The design on the pot works well with the edge of the yellow plate.

 Pale green goblets for our drinks.

 The fork in a miniature gardening glove just for fun.
 I remembered I had this little cart. It is very old, I painted it green. I forget what color it was originally. I then filled it with these flowers and added some little embellishments.

 For dinner we had pasta salad,
 Black bean, black eyed peas, and corn salad, with red onion, olive oil and agave nectar. It can be used as a dip but I love to eat it like this! If anyone wants the recipe, just let me know.
 and grilled pork chops.
Thanks for your visit. I wish you a sunny, beautiful summer day wherever you are.
 Partying with:
