Enjoying the outdoors...

It's that time of year when we can enjoy some meals outside. Not too cold or too hot (as will soon be the case here in Arizona). I set a pretty table for breakfast tomorrow so we can enjoy our breakfast on the patio. And I did it all using things I already had. :) My mom made the quilt that I keep on this table. I love the colors in it - they're so cheerful. I cut some branches from a bush out front and put them in one of my faux mercury glass jars. I love the look - and it's a quick, frugal way to add some greenery to any table.

A basket full of muffins wrapped in a crisp white napkin. (I took all the food in for the night after I snapped these pics.)

The little bird hanging on the spoon of the jelly jar was given to me by my mom's cousin. It's actually supposed to hang on a branch but I love how it looks with the jar.

We have had this wrought iron table for 14 years. We got it right before we were married. It has been through 2 moves - one across the country - and refuses to die, or rust, or anything else that would justify me buying a new table and chairs.

I love to eat outside and breakfast is always a good time to do it at September Acres. It's very leisurely and by July it's the only time we can get out for some fresh air if we're not in the pool.

Do you like to take your meals outdoors?

Very fun, Debra. Your spread looks beautiful!

Thanks for your comment on my food waste post. I did actually watch that freegan episode--fascinating. I don't know if I could rummage through the trash like that, but I understand why people do it!
Something about fresh air makes all meals taste better. Your table is lovely and I love the pot with your silverware. Great ideas!
