I'm really enjoying this space this year. The deck is not really nice, its old and needs to be replaced, but that's a job for another year. So I have made it the nicest space I can with what I have to work with.
The benches are the ones we used to use at our kitchen table. We no longer needed them at the kitchen table every day, so i moved the outside to the deck. The other bench is parallel to the table and provides nice seating.
I also have my red metal chairs that I painted. You can read about that here. But we also bought two other red chairs at Christmas Tree Shops!
They are really nice chairs and a good price! I bought them to use to sit across the creek under the trees, but they work well on our deck, too!
I bought some patriotic bunting at Christmas Tree Shops a few weeks ago. I'm enjoying them out on the deck. I think they add a festive element to this space.
Because the weather was so nice, and we had some foods left over from yesterday, I cooked up some chicken tenderloins and we had a nice picnic supper on the deck this evening.
Chicken, salads, and fruit. It was delicious!
Ree Drummond's dishes made the table even more welcoming!
Do you like to eat meals outside? Have any of you enjoyed a picnic supper this summer?
