Dining Al Fresco!

I LOVE eating outside in the summer! Going out to someplace that has outdoor seating is fun and having it at home is even better! I found these amazing acrylic dishes at Home Goods weeks ago and couldn't wait to use them! I marinated some boneless chicken tenders and made a pasta salad and a fruit salad for a light but delicious dinner. I love the blue colors, the bamboo edge and the lovely design on these dishes!

 I found a navy blue beaded placemat, and a  rattan charger for my stack.
 My cream flatware is perfect with the dishes. I used papaer napkins to keep it very casual for just the 2 of us.

 The bowl held our fruit salad.
 These glasses are acrylic also! I LOVE them as they look so pretty!
 Pasta salad
 Fruit salad in an acrylic bowl too.

 My centerpiece is a plant that sits on the table all the time. The coleus came up from seed last year out in the yard. So, I put it in this pot, along with an ivy and this flowering plant and it wintered inside very well!

 I love my large cement like bird too as it is heavy and won't blow away:)

 The night was capped off with a beautiful sunset!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a beautiful day doing what makes you happy!
We had Colleen from Thurs after school til Sunday afternoon and we were exhausted:) But, it was so much fun. She fills my heart with JOY!!!

  1. Oh Pinky, I love your plates and flatware, and everything including your plant and bird on the table. That sunset is also very special.

  2. Saw these while browsing Home Goods today. So pretty! You did great with them!

  3. Love your outdoor setting Pinky! To top the evening off with that beautiful sunset was truly a bonus....It's been quite warm here, even in the evenings. Glad you can have such a wonderful dinner outdoors and enjoy your beautiful surroundings!

    1. Thanks, Shirley. We haven't eaten outside in a few days now, it is very hot here too and still 90 degrees at dinner time:(

  4. Beautiful Pinky. Loving those plates. What a lovely place to sit and then take in the sunset. xo

  6. I love the new plates and complete table settings. Your pot for your centerpiece is just beautiful! Definitely a gorgeous sunset!

  7. Those plates really are nice... and what a great outdoor setting for a nice meal. :)

  8. Wow I am loving the ikat pattern. I was hoping to get to Home Goods today to browse.....now I know I am going and hoping they might have those dishes for me. Such a gorgeous table Pinky.
