Tuscan Breakfast On Deck


This is a re-post from last year but I had to join Kim at Savvy Southern Style  for the Summer Deck and Porches Party.  I just realized I used some of the same items in my Summer Entertaining post for the Blog Party tomorrow night!  I hope you won't be sick of seeing some of the same willow things again.

RE-POST

We have had a few cooler days here in Richmond so I decided we would have breakfast on the deck.  What a gorgeous day...if it would only stay this way.


See my new gray willow candlesticks? Well, they were not originally gray and the food cover was originally painted white. I'll be doing a DIY post later on transforming wicker, rattan or willow into the new popular gray.

I found the willow food dome at an antique mall. It's not an old piece but I really liked it.


The carrier and the napkin rings I purchased with my gift card from our son and DIL.

 The candlesticks came from a garden shop that was going out of business and had some great reductions.






The first project we did to our home was to add this extension to the deck.  I love having the extra space for seating.






.  Oh No!  I forgot to tell you not to eat the cantaloupe. I hope you did not break a tooth!  I should have told you these are faux cantaloupe.  Did I fool anyone? 


I'll be back tomorrow evening for "Summer Entertaining" and I look forward to seeing what you have to share.  Thanks to Vanessa and Heather of  At The Picket Fence  for all their hard work putting this party together.
Hugs, Sherry

Your table is so lovely! I must be in the right spot, as I'm certainly no minimalist when it comes to decorating my house!

How beautiful. I love your tablesetting. The candlesticks and the food cover are gorgeous and your table runner and dishes look just stunning together. Yes, I thought it was real cantelope. How cool is that. Your deck is just beautiful and such pretty furniture and flowers. Gorgeous. Thanks for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

What a gorgeous deck & French inspired table setting! Love the iron cutlery carrier and wicker food dome!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Sherry, your deck is so pretty. I love the extension with the seating. Your table setting looks so good. There is a store here that sells the gray wicker pieces and they really have good prices, too. I love the candlesticks you got and painted. That fruit sure looks yummy. I need to go to the store and buy groceries.

Hi Sherry!
Your deck looks so lovely. And the table setting is stunning! I can't wait until you show us how get that wonderful gray color on wicker. It looks great.

As I have said before everything you touch turns magical.

Thanks for stopping by earlier. I love your deck...just purchased a "conversation set" and I'm hoping to pull together a space as nice as what you have. I'd love to know where you got the planters that are on either side of the loveseat.

Oh Sherry! This is gorgeous! I'm working on the garden walk Saturday, and I'm doing a tablesetting under the pergola (I wrote a big blog about it - so follow me over and check it out) and I'm looking for inspiration - of course, I knew I could come here and find tons! I'm loving the idea of those wicker plate shields and the fabric going from the width of the table, instead of the length. GENIUS! and GORGEOUS! So, don't be so surprised if you see that copied next week when I play in TT Thursday! :) Can't wait! Thank you so so so so much for the inspiration! :)

Tricia@The Dull and the Dutiful said...

So gorgeous! Your table should be in a magazine! Yes, I was worried that the cantaloupe halves still had their seeds -- glad they're faux! What a great deck!

Barbara said...

Sherry, your wicker items are so pretty. The gray is gorgeous. I love every detail, from the pretty yellow color, the gorgeous plates to the grapes spilling over the edge of the bowl. Such a pretty setting!

Linda said...

What a wonderful deck and table! I was totally fooled by the cantaloupe...they looked so real.

craftyles said...

Good Morning Sherry Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I love the table setting. Your silverware caddie is just beautiful. I love that it can carry out so many different styles and still fit in.

Your candlesticks are beautiful, and I love the food cover also. What a gorgeous table you have shared today. It is beautiful.

I too, love you extension on the patio. What a clever idea that is. We can always use extra seating when we eat outdoors or have a gathering.

Thank you for sharing. Please stop by and let me share my post with you.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Your tablescape is great. I especially love the carrier. It is so special because it was from family. I look forward to seeing the gray wicker technique and the potted flowers are beautiful. It all looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing.

GORGEOUS!!! Sherry you just give me so much inspiration and I absolutely love your deck extension. Your color pallette is so fantastic too and kind of what I would like to go towards on my own deck. Thanks so much for everything and for all of your sweet words and encouragement! :-)
