This is the first time I have done a tablescape in months. Life has been pretty busy this summer. My new back porch has been a respite for a few months now, but I think this is the first table out there that I have actually photographed since we built the porch.
I actually have kept a basic table set up out there with everything except what goes into the mouth or contains food. It has been changed every couple of weeks, but I never got around to bringing out actual entire place settings. For one thing, the monsoons were sometimes too heavy to eat outside. The gentle steady summer rains were great, however. Mostly when we eat there, it is spur of the moment.
Other times, it has just been too hot. I hate to sweat while I eat! Sweet Husband really gets cranky at times like that. But don't we all...
So, to celebrate my birthday tomorrow, I decided to set up something that looked cool and comfortable. Weather permitting, we will actually use this. I saw where Cuisine Kathleen was having her annual white tablescape challenge where you can use one other color, and I think this qualifies. There are a several shades of green, but they are still all green, more or less.
There is nothing new here -- you have seen it all before, so I won't bore you with a list. I wish you could all join me for my birthday party tomorrow!
