Home Sweet Home #21

Hello and welcome to Home Sweet Home!  Today I created a little table for the backyard with a nautical mood.

I photographed this table three times, so it had varying set ups and lighting that I had tried at different times.  This version had a little sherbet with some strawberries and blueberries  in it.

The dishes were Pfaltzgraff, the goblets were French pressed glass, the silverware was from Better Homes and Gardens, the lantern was provided by CSN Stores, and the pewter mug is vintage, from 1976 bicentennial Wilton Armetale collection.

I hope everyone has a great 4th weekend!  Thanks for joining me at Home Sweet Home!
Now, I would like to feature some wonderful post from last week's Home Sweet Home.  

Lisa at House Dressing had a beautiful courtyard she showed us.  Click the link to view.

 Next, Delusions of Grandeur showed off a Shabby Chic guestroom that was complete, even with a Marie Atoinette dress form.  Click the link to view. 

Next, Debbie over at Debbie-Dabble showed us her porch and patio.  Click the link to view.

 Komali Nunna from Entertaining From an Ethnic Indian Kitchen showed us rock planters for succulents for a Father's Day table and some amazing food.  Click the link to view.

And last Diann from The Thrifty Groove showed us a wonderful Italian tablescape with some woven place mats she found for 98 cents.  Click the link to view.
Now onto today.

I love the way your table is not only fresh and patriotic, but it also has a colonial feel to it with that tankard. Very pretty!

Dear Sherry,
What a lovely table you have set! Thank you for hosting and sharing! My week is always highlighted by visiting your beautiful blog!

Cass @ That Old House said...

LOVE the table -- I love "basket" bordered china; the only ones I have are dinner plates from Dollar Tree, but I keep my eyes out for a bargain in better quality ones.

Yours are gorgeous -- beautiful finish on them.

Love the lantern ... and I hope you don't mind if I steal the idea to tuck shells into one that I have!

All the best -- and thanks for hosting!

Sarah said...

Sherry, your table looks like a perfect setting for alfresco dining during the summer. Love the lantern with the shells tucked in.
Thanks for hosting and have a happy 4th. ~ Sarah
