Al fresco dining for two

The  weather has been great lately.We passed the heat wave for couple of days. This beautiful weather inspires me to dine outdoors. A romantic table is set for two on my patio. Today's color theme is pink and pewter, my favorite combination.


The table is lined with pink tablecloth and topped off with an Indian shawl.





Two beautiful pewter figurines are holding flowers from the garden.


Isn't she elegant?

  4. I am barely breathing and I am not just saying that and I am not having an asthma attack either. Your pewter pieces absolutely stole my breath away. Where ever did you get such divine pieces. Everything on that Indian shawl was just showstopping and you have a beautiful yard in addition.

  5. Komali,
    this will be definately my favorited table this day. Pink and prewter, who had ever thought how pretty this combination turnes out on your table. The shawl is gorgeous as indish design is always for me. And the shown pewter collection is really breath taking. The chargers are absolute stunning and the flower and canle holders are real artwork. What a pretty table. Thank you so much for sharing this. We still enjoy your recipe of strawberry salad, it is the hit of the season, too.
    Greetings, Johanna

    Those figurines are from a catalog about 5-6 years ago. I don't remember which catalog now.

  21. Just beautiful and so different! I love the pink tablecloth and the Indian shawl. I've always loved the rich fabrics and colors of the Indian fabrics and you displayed this so elegantly in your tablescape. The outdoor setting is perfect and I love the way your flowers complemented your tablescape. Your choice of glasses was perfect. Beautiful job!
