We are taking advantage of every opportunity to dine outdoors before the weather gets scorching hot and even under the canopy of the trees, outside becomes unbearable. And as long as burlap is still "in", I'll be using it because I love the roughness of the fibers. Especially in contrast to something as refined as crochet lace and silver.
I love the contrast between the burlap and the lace!
Pier One wooden chargers with scrolls, don'tcha just love these?
Bordallo Pinheiro dinner plates in that wonderful cabbage green
Pier One Salad plates are perfect for dining outdoors and blend well with the dinner plates.
Know nothing about this silver* - estate sale find for next to nothing.. R is my middle initial. I loved the heaviness of the pieces with its lovely scrollwork and roses.
The pieces are as pretty front and back.
World Market red woven cord napkin rings around vintage damask napkins add a bit more color to the table.
Sterling salt and peppers in dire need of polishing... oops.
Ceramic baskets hold tea lights for after dark.
My favorite hand-blown goblets, capable of holding enough liquid so we don't get parched,.
My favorite Wedgwood pitcher to refill our glasses.
I love fresh flowers and although I don't have a cutting garden (drats), I know of good florists (United and Sam).
