Tablescape Thursday

Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch it is table scape time again. Today I am having a friend over for lunch and I am serving Root Beer Floats, out of the deck. It is a nice day so I thought we could sit outside and chat. The glasses and bowl I am using for the floats and strawberries were my grandmothers. I always loved these glasses, mainly because my mom always made floats or ice cream shakes in them. I believe they are depression glass.

The Root Beer float is made up of ice cream and root beer soda. How easy is that. I used my everyday dishes which are Mikasa harvest pattern.
This table is a cute little find at Marshall's a couple of years ago. ( about $40) It is a red and yellow toile mosaic tile top.Those floats look so good!

The roses are fresh cut from my garden. The bushes are looking great and so are the roses.
Thanks for stopping by today, I must go now and drink my floats as they are starting to fizzle out. Don't forget to visit Between Naps on the Porch for other fabulous table scape's. Enjoy your Thursday!

  4. What a great idea to have root beer floats on the patio during a friends visit. The roses are gorgeous and she will enjoy looking at the rest of the yard. Your dishes are lovely and so is the table. Such fun. Hugs, Marty
