Dining on the Deck!

We have had several real nice evenings that allow us to eat outside on the deck. I try to take advantage of any opportunity we get because as FAST as summer is going, I know we won't get these opportunities for too long. I LOVE eating outdoors. I found these dishes last year and dug them out to use. I have plants in blue pots out here on the deck so it all blends nicely.
 The turtles are so cute and since the deck overlooks the pond they are fitting.
 I have had these napkins for ages, found them at Goodwill years ago and can't believe how well they go with the dishes! I stacked 2 outdoor placemats that go so well with the dishes.
 I had gathered a plain blue napkin and the print one in a white ceramic ring.

 Green flatware is used again here. I am sorry for the glare on the dishes but I couldn't avoid it.
 The stems as well as the plates are all acrylic. Perfect for outdoors with no worry of breakage.
 After I set the table I remembered I had these fish napkin rings!  Perfect!!!
 We are enjoying many meals out here. That is one of the best things about summer for me, being able to eat outside. How about you, do you enjoy it too?
Thanks for your visit. Is summer flying by for you too? I always start wishing it lasted longer around this time each year.  Have a beautiful day, my friends.

I am sharing here:


  1. Hi Pinky! I love your turtle plates and the fish napkin rings. They are very beachy looking and the colors are so refreshing. I wish it were cool enough to enjoy outside dining around here. We can barely get out of the 100s lately. I'm linking up a tablescape this week too, finally. Stop by if you get a chance. Hope your enjoying your summer!

  2. Pinky, your turtle plates are so cute! Love your color scheme. It has gotten too hot for us now to enjoy meals outside. Breakfast isn't too bad; but, anything other than that is almost impossible. So, I'll live vicariously through you! Hope you're having a great week!

  3. Where has the summer gone? Love your table setting...had to pin it for inspiration...

  4. Those plates are fabulous, and how perfect that you're near a pond! I know what you mean about eating outside...everything tastes better somehow ;).

  5. Your plates and napkins are so gorgeous. You have very beautifully set-up your deck for dining.

  6. Beautiful setting, Pinky! Love your dishes. It has been so hot that we haven't been able to enjoy any outdoor activities. Around here we will be dining outdoors in the Fall. :)

  7. So great that you had couple of great evenings to dine outdoors...still very warm here...Love those cute turtle plates...and yes, the summer is flying by!

  8. GORGEOUS, Pinky! I love those plates. Stay cool. Isn't it scorching hot? xo

  9. Pinky,
    This is a gorgeous dining on the deck tablescape,dear friend!
    I love how the tranquil color palette keeps one "cool" in mid Summer's heat!

  10. Love the turtle plates and the fish rings! Yes, we love to eat outside when we're at the beach and it's nice and breezy- summer is definitely going too fast :)

  11. I love your turtle plates for summer Pinky! We love dining outdoors on the patio but it's been too dog gone hot the past month! I have to confess I'm counting down the days 'til fall :)
