The children have other things to do this weekend. So hubby and I were home alone. A RARE OCCURRENCE! So I decided to set up a table in the garden.
Why not bring out the ants?
okay... tons of ants
Lots of ants with polka dots...
I am sure that hubby will love the table..... actually I doubt he will notice all the touches but hey, I would not let such a festive occasion go without some fan fare.
My fabulous glass wine bucket with a handle.
This table is such a happy table and makes me smile. I took these pictures during the day but saved some of them at twilight when we had dinner.
Daisies from the garden in small galvanized cups. Make the table so sweet. Red flowers would have been too heavy and distracted from all the red patterns.
Another DIY project... gold chargers from a yard sale primed and painted with chalkboard paint. These are going to be so great for any number of tables. I love them on this table as they anchor the plates.
Oilcloth cut for a tablecloth. Have you checked out the beautiful oilcloths? You could make some very pretty tablecloths. It is very inexpensive and soooo cute.
Red gingham ant plates.. a great find at $1 a piece
My Spode Red Polka Dot plates
Layers of Patterns
Add some pretty wine glasses...
The red flatware... so pretty...
Ant Salt and Pepper shakers
At dusk with the lanterns...
I hope you enjoy this table and hubby likes dinner.
Pork Chops with mustard sauce
Mini - Cherry Pie
Lots of Wine
