An Outdoor Berry Sunny Table

Woohoo! It is sunshiny today!! No rain! No gloomy skies! So, the tablescape post I had ready for today will have to wait!

I grabbed my glass cleaner and raced outside to clean the patio table to do a tablescape outside! I also ran around the house and gathered some pretties with no real plan on what I was going to do. LOL

This is what I came up with! We will probably have a gourmet meal out there tonight of hamburgers and hot dogs but, I don't care. I finally get to sit outside and enjoy some sun!!

I just think these berry plates are so fun and bright and just happy! I got them at a yard salad (2 dinner plates & 2 bowls for $1.00)
Both sets of stemware were given to me for free from a woman last summer cleaning out her storage units.

About 95% of the things on this table have been thrifted. Just a few items were bought new (The birds, purple votive holders, tulip coasters and the tall candlestick with the crystals).

As you can see from the cherub piece, birds and candlesticks, I really did raid my decor from around the house.

You like the special addition of reality of the Mickey Mouse car in the background? I kept telling the princess to please move her toys out of the way. Mama is trying to take pictures. After awhile, you just give up and go with it! LOL

The last of my Mother's Day flowers.
That's so weird that my pink depression glass plate came out orangey in the pics.

Yup, this bowl has a chip in it. Still like them.
