Table scape Thursday 5/14 Outdoor dining

Thanks to Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for hosting Table scape Thursday. I decided to bring us outdoors today since it is a gorgeous day for outdoor dining. Have a seat and a glass of wine and enjoy the day.
I used a galvanized metal container I purchased at a consignment shop for $15.00 to hold the wine bottles. (similar ones at Pottery Barn) You can add have ice in this container and it will not leak. The ice bucket is sooo cute, purchased at Kohl's for $7 at 50% off last year. .

I used these cute little containers from the dollar section at Target to hold the napkins and utensils. ( I replicated this from a Pottery Barn display I found I couple of years ago at a fraction of the price). The place mats were from TJ Maxx 6 for $5.00I decided this was a very informal table scape so I am using paper plates with these wicker holder from Cost Plus 6 for $10. These give texture to the table and hold the paper plate better.

e This lantern I found at Ross stores I don't remember the price but not much. I love it. I use it for candles or as you see today for seashells to give the beachy feel to the table.
Those little fish are votive holders and bring color to the table. The plant is a dwarf boxwood $5.00 at Lowe's the other day. It bring a little life and greenery to the table.
Thank you for enjoy our outdoor dining today and thank you to Susan for hosting. Be sure to visit Between Naps on the Porch for more exciting table scapes.
Come back again soon!
