Dining Al Fresco

I love being outside...something about it makes me so happy.  The breeze, the birds, grass...I just love having another "room" outside to spend time in.  One of my favorite things is to have dinner outside.  Just as the sun has started to relax and the air is just a bit cooler (though still quite humid as of late).

This table cloth is my favorite, it belonged to Greg's grandma Becky and I feel a certain sense of pride every time I put it out.  Not to mention that a vintage table cloth on a picnic table is perfect in my mind.  I try and walk around the yard to pick some fresh flowers for a center piece and then even the simplest dinner seems extra special.
notice that cat of ours trying to get in on the action!

Cole Slaw in my new Pyrex and some BBQ pulled chicken ( a stand by lately) is just the right meal on a summer evening like this.  The trill of our family being together for a simple meal  is something that I truly treasure. 


  1. It all looks so pretty! Love that tablecloth and the dishes are gorgeous :-) You're right, eating al fresco is the best!

  2. You set a beautiful table Angie. What a treasure you have with the tablecloth.
    I love to dine outside too,but right now it is just too hot and buggy here. October is the time we finally are able to enjoy this area again and I for one can't wait!

  3. A lovely table set outside! I might have to do the same thing. I am admiring your table cloth and your pyrex!!

  4. I love everything thing about that table!
    And I am super jealous about eating out of doors...way too hot in TX for that still.

  5. I love, love, love your table and colors! I'm a bit jealous of that Pyrex ;)
