Fishing by the Pool

I don't know about your side of the country but it sure has been hot, muggy and stormy around here lately.  I am so happy to finally have a clear evening for a little outdoor dining.  I've set the table quickly tonight as the sun is setting rather rapidly and it looks like the fish are jumping!

Placemats: Crate and Barrel
Dinner Plates: Christmas Tree Shops
Salad Plates: Christmas Tree Shops
Goblets: Christmas Tree Shops
Napkins: ?  Very Old
Glass Napkin Rings: ?  Can't remember, bought last year?  Gee I'm getting old!
Flatware: Steinmart
Candle Jars: Old Time Pottery

Thanks for stopping by!  
Hope you also get the time to enjoy a little outdoor dining this summer.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

  2. How sweet and summery and beachy, Mary. It is soso hot here that we haven't eaten outside hardly at all this summer--xo Diana

  3. This table is so refreshing! Love the colors and with this heat we need some cool colors! Hugs, Linda

  4. Mary, this table is AMAZING!! The colors are so soothing and beautiful! I'm so jealous of your backyard oasis, what a treat! Happy Summer! xo ~Liz

  5. I love this table, Mary! Those fish themed dinner and salad plates are adorable, and I really love the color blue that you have for your glassware. I don't have a single thing in that hue.

    It all looks wonderful by the pool.

  6. This is absolutely beautiful! So fresh and summery.....

  7. This is just darling Mary. Your photos are so pretty too!~ You really know how to capture the scene. Did you get my email about the tea towels?:}

  8. What a cool, refreshing table -- and just looking at the pool as you dine will cool you off!

  9. How pretty Mary, I think the fish shaped plates are so cute! I love the blue too, looks wonderful by the pool! It's been so hot here too!

  10. I'm thinking those napkin rings possibly came from Bed, Bath & Beyond? I have some that I think are just like that, and that's where they came from a few years ago. The plates are just cute, cute, cute!!!!!!!

  11. Hi Mary!
    Love those colors, so refreshing! The goblets are great, I haven't seen them at CTS.
    It looks lovely by your pool, and yes, it has been warm and muggy here. Raining today!
