~ Architectural Dining ~

Spending time on my front porch even in our temperatures
is an every night occurrence. A few weeks ago
I put together a tablescape with some
architectural pieces I use to decorate inside
our home.
Choosing cream and white for the table
with a mix of the green in the
architectural pieces feel cool
and soothing.

Lacey edged chargers add
a bit more substance to the
curvy edge of the plates.

The tall column was purchased
many years ago once all
white, I dabbed a bit of
green here and there
to have a feeling of
moss growing.

White bowls ready for the evenings
dessert of strawberries and
ice cream.

To further soften the corner I added
an old birdhouse I've had
for a few years. Boston fern
softens the wooden
edges of the birdhouse. In an
earlier post found here you'll
see the corner without the
6' birdhouse. I like the bit
of excitement it adds to the rest
of the pieces. What about you?

Coffee cups ready for iced coffee.
Raised details on the coffee cups
mimic the edge of the chargers.
Target flatware compliments the
taupe colored edge.

I love monogrammed anything, laying them under the
cereal/dessert bowl shows off the beautiful
All stacked up.

A pillow helps soften the hard scape
metal of the chair and your back. :-))
Target birds hold court .

A few close ups of the metal works
on the birdhouse

As a gentle breeze begins to blow,
the tablecloth swirls like
the dress of a woman dancing, revealing
our little guest that likes
to hide under the table.

As always thank you for stopping in.
We love your visits along
with your sweet comments
Susan, thank you for hosting
this fun filled party
each week.
