A backyard party 

When we bought our house three years ago, we inherited this large Polywood table and six chairs. The table and chairs are certainly sturdy and they’re pretty comfy, so we are grateful.

For a long time, the table took up space on our back porch and it just didn’t fit the space. On a whim, I moved the table down to the patio where our fire pit used to be.

You see, now this table gives us an awesome space to have a pretty little summer party.

Simple placemats with solid green dishes and melamine salad plates add a little color to the table. Green was chosen since it highlights the plants in the area.

Handmade cloth napkins complete the look.

I didn’t want the tablescape to be overwhelming so I just cut some flowers from the yard and scattered them in glass vases all over the table.

The table fits the space so much better and gives us yet another space for entertaining. 

I’m so glad I entertained that “whim” and moved the table to the patio.

What “whims” have worked for you recently?
