Alfresco Tablescape Roundup

This week I am hosting my first blog hop which will showcase a great line up of tablescapes all perfect for summertime outdoor dining.  I will be sharing my new alfresco tablescape on Friday, but realized I have styled a few tablescapes out of doors, therefore, this would be a good time to revisit some posts of the past with this alfresco tablescape roundup.

Alfresco Tablescapes:

A-Night-Safari-Dinner-Party-1024x681 (2)

This Night Safari Dinner Party was one of my favorite outdoor dinners.  Looking back I am reminded how I brought all of the chairs from my dining table and living room outside so that my guests would have comfortable seats.  This was a great balcony and we were so lucky to have that much outdoor space!Hamptons-anniversary-party (2)Although this was not a party I hosted, I was thrilled to be a guest at this anniversary party in the Hamptons.  Head on over to the post to see all of the lovely details!

Cinderella-Movie-PartyA party inspired by the live action Cinderella Film was perfectly suited to an outdoor location.  This was before I had a yard of my own, consequently, I held this little get together in one of the neighborhood common areas.  Yes, I hauled my dining chairs down the street for this party.  The azaleas blooming in the background were a perfect addition to the party decorations.  Parisian-Valentine-Dinner-for-two-collage (1)

A romantic dinner for two set on the balcony of our old condominium was the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day with my dear hubby!  I have kept my light up Eiffel tower to use for other parties and celebrations.  Check out the details on those Champagne glasses at Paris themed dinner for two.  

Paper-lanterns-over-a-summer-table-1024x681When I received this fun dishes from The Radish Store, I knew these called for an outdoor setting.  It was fun to hang paper lanterns above the table and to create a fun centerpiece that mimicked the pattern on the dishes.  You can see all of the pictures from this tablescape at Papaya Inspired Alfresco tablescape.

Gather-on-the-back-porch-for-dinner-for-two-with-a-nautical-touch-768x544A Nautical Tablescape Dinner for Two  I set this table on the back porch just before the Fourth of July this year.  I am loving our porches on this house and see me using them for dining year round, depending upon the whims of the weather here in Florida.Pretty-in-Pink-Floral-tablescape-768x659One of my favorite tables is A PInk Luncheon.  This was on the front porch of the new house, a luncheon for just three of us.  Perfect for three lovely ladies!
