Dining Alfresco....5 of my Favorite Summer Tablescapes



We frequently eat outdoors during the summer,   so I have created many many tablescapes over the years.   I picked out 5 of my favorites to share with you guys.   Usually I save my favorite for last,  but this time it's going to be at the top of my list!   

My favorite of all time has to be the lemon tablescape I created using Dollar Tree dishes.    Second  is my Longhorn tablescape.....3rd is the watermelon tablescape,   4th is my  breakfast tablescape....and last but still a favorite is the aqua and pink  one.     Which one is your favorite?
  


 

Since I live in Eastern New Mexico....about 8 miles from the Texas border,.....I love decorating with boots and Longhorns! 




Watermelons make such a colorful tablescape.......I really enjoyed making my centerpiece using a hollowed out watermelon as my container.




This is one of my favorites because H and I had a romantic breakfast that morning......




Aqua mason jars and pink flowers.....loved this one!



Let me know in your comment if you picked a favorite!

  6. It is difficult to choose a favorite. I pinned them all! If I were to recreate one of them, it would probably be the lemon theme. You are so talented!

  8. It's amazing you were able to score the Dollar Tree lemon dishes. My DTs never have the cute dishes. I think it's my favorite tablescape.

  14. Penny, I love them all but I have to say I am sooo glad you had a paper plate table setting!! I did that this summer and it looked lovely under the outdoor lights. My favorite, though, is the lemons followed by the romantic Battenburg lace-covered table with the sweetheart chairs. <3 I still have the few Battenburg lace tablecloths I found years ago. Oh, happy to feature your post at this week's Share Your Style #268. <3

    Stay cool out your way,
    Hugs,
    Barb :)

    p.s. Are you by Las Cruces? I am pretty sure you mentioned that I'd driven right by you this summer when we went out for Charles' father-in-law's memorial. Enjoy the rest of your week!!! <3

  21. Penny,
    They are all so pretty!! Love the Lemon one...I have yet to find those lemon dishes in a Dollar Tree around here. They are building a brand new Dollar Tree, 12,500 square ft. in the shopping center right next to me!! I hardly spent any time outside since it was ungodly hot here this Summer...Broke many records for record heat!!
    Hugs,
    Debbie
