Breakfast on the Patio


Hello, Bloggy Friends. It's time for Tablescape Thursday over at Susan's Between Naps on the Porch. Hooray! Visit her for all the great tablescapes. Thanks, Susan!

Today, we are having breakfast on the patio. Let's go check it out.


I was trying to beat the rain when I did this, so I was kinda in a hurry. I'm using one of my vintage tablecloths of blue, yellow and white.



Rattan chargers, Gollum dinner plates and yellow salad plate.



My first attempt at flower arranging. hehehehe Yes! They are real this time (Walmart)




Fresh strawberries and cantaloupe on my compote dish from TJMaxx. I just removed the red ribbon bow from it for this tablescape.





O
Fresh oranges and (fake lemons) . (If I hadn't been in such a hurry, I would have removed those yellow votifs from the table. )






Fresh, homemade (from a can) biscuits! Yummy!



Pssssssst...................................................
Here's my inspiration picture from an old Hancock Fabric magazine from 2001.










How'd I do? :)










My yellow flowers. These open in day and close at night. I don't know what they are, but so far, I haven't killed them. (I wish I could say the same for my gerbera daisies hehehehehe)






Thanks so much for taking time to stop by on such a busy night like this. So much good stuff to look at. I'm on my way over there right now.
