Hi and welcome to my Red Couch! Please take a seat and relax. It's the end of the summer. You can feel the chill in the air. Last night I had the table set in my dining room. As I joined my husband on the deck while he was grilling, I realized what a nice night it was to dine on the deck. The thought also came to me that there won't be that many more nights to enjoy dining on the deck. So I moved everything to the deck and enjoyed dinner with my family on the deck.
The star of the table is Mr. Parrot. My sister-in-law gave these plates to me recently. So of course I had to do a table with them. Thank you Camille!
Here's a picture of the full place setting. The napkins are new to me and came in a set of four, orange, turquoise, white, and red. I also bought the coral napkin rings recently. I love the tropical feeling that the napkins give the table.
My sister, Jacqueline at Purple Chocolat Home found these clear "bubble" stems at Tai Pan Trading, a Utah store, and gave them to me. Thank you! I love "bubble" glasses!
Here's a view of the full tablesetting. I hope we eat late enough to light the candles tonight. Don't you just love the light of candles in your loved one's faces? Oops, there's a preview of my treat! I colored coodinated it with the table. Yes, I DID!
Here's a close up of the dessert! They are orange and cherry flavored and yummy and tropical! Please grab one before you go. I enjoy serving desserts on sticks. I think they are more fun that way. I will post the recipe and instructions for Coconut Treats on a Stick tomorrow.
Here's a final view of my table this week! Hope you enjoyed your visit. I can tell you that it is always a pleasure to see you!
I am posting this with Susan at Between Naps at the Porch for Tablescape Thursday where if you visit you will be inspired to set a better table.
