This is a outdoor dinner table I did about 4 years ago. It is fun and fresh and some yummy simple recipes. So, I thought I would revive it to share with you. My original post had about 16 million pictures! LOL I was just learning how to take pictures of tablescapes and went insane in the early days!
Red and white is such a fun and fresh summer combo! And whenever you can add a checkered linen to the table is just screams picnic!
Even some wonderful old white ironstone collected from thrifting fits right in to this cheerful outdoor table.
And for a fresh outdoor picnic type table, Mother Nature can add accessories! Beautiful fresh cherries and strawberries! I lined the little wicker and red metal containers with some wax paper. Using wax paper brings back a childhood smile for me. That was what my mom used to wrap our sandwiches in our school lunch.
Don’t have red and white checkered linens? Neither did I. These are bandanas I bought at Hobby Lobby when they were on sale 2/$1.00. They make perfect summertime linens!
Easy and yummy food is required during the hot days of summer!
First we will start with some roll up sandwiches. I decided to use the sun dried tomato Lavash because I just thought it would look pretty with this table.
1 8oz. package of softened cream cheese (I use Neufchatel cheese because I like the creamy and lightness of it).
4 chopped fine green onions
dash of salt and pepper
2 teaspoons of dried herb mix (we make a special blend out of our herbs to keep on hand all year long) but, you can just add whatever herbs and seasonings that you like.
Cream all together.
Spread thinly over lavash. Sprinkle you chopped up meat (I used leftover grilled chicken) and then add a couple of slices of avocado.
Our salad is a simple salad of:
lettuce, sliced strawberries, slice tomatoes, chopped green onions, sliced cucumbers and walnuts. With a Greek Feta Dressing.
I served the fresh strawberries with a little drizzle of honey.
A happy and thrifty table with simple fresh food is just about the most perfect evening meal for this time of the year!Follow my blog with Bloglovin
