My loggia reveal and a giveaway!

Hello and happy Wednesday evening. I just couldn’t wait to post this. OK first I want to preface this by saying this is not totally done. We had ordered lanterns but found out two weeks ago they are now out of stock until August. The search has resumed and I think we found a good one that is in stock so hopefully within the next few weeks we will have two beautiful lanterns gracing this space. Besides planters, pillows and other odds and ends, it is just about done. BUT the exciting thing is I got my outdoor furniture for the loggia. We are still short two chairs which are due in any day but I was soooo excited I just had to share! I LOVE this furniture, thank you Lane Venture for making it (you should check their website, their things are beautiful with a capital B!

So pardon my amateur photos but you get the idea, I even set up my table with all the different patterns of the melamine dinnerware and I had such fun. I have to say I haven’t been this excited over a new product as I am this, to be able to call outdoor plastic dinnerware exquisite is really saying something but it is! So enough of my gabbing…have a look!

Isn’t it beautiful!
Can you say L O V E!!!!!!!!!

The upholstery is done with Sunbrella…I chose neutral so I could change the look with pillows

Yes, it is as comfortable as it looks……

Love the big square coffee table
And matching end tables
Here is the table all set up…….

?This is the Provence pattern……

?Don’t you just love the wicker serving pieces and how much do those plastic glasses look like glass!

?Love this set!

And the beautiful Amalfi…….

And the Provence yellow…….

I like the idea of mixing and matching patterns…..

I like the way the blue glassware looks……

And finally the Laguna……

These are the basketweave serving pieces that are about to be added, they come in 5 sizes and are beautiful for any outdoor table….just got them in!

Well…what do you think? You know those wonderful little wicker spreaders in the last picture? Well I am giving away a set as a giveaway. They are sooo pretty! And wonderful for any summer table. In addition I have the carving set, salad set, serving spoons, spatula and pierced fork all in this same wonderful pattern. Just got them in and they will soon be added to the online shop. If you want to be eligible, just visit my online tabletop shop and tell me your favorite item. I will announce a winner on Saturday morning. Click here to visit. (Remember anonymous..you must include a first name and last name initial in the body of your comment)

Thanks for stopping in…you know i had to share this and just couldn’t wait!! Thanks for stopping in and hope the sun is shining where you are. At last it feels like spring here!!

Sooooooo happy its Friday….. I am glad the week is over, I need some downtime in a big way. The weather has truly been all over the map as I know it has in many parts of the country. We have had 82 and sunny one day and today it’s a cold 48 and rainy……..all in one week! I think the flowers and plants are quite confused as to whether or not they should make their debut! I for one cannot wait until the warmer weather is here for good….which makes me instantly crave eating outdoors, one of the perks of the late spring and summer months which leads me to my post today……

?

I had given a little preview of the beautiful new melamine dishes I was waiting on….by far the most beautiful I have ever seen! So naturally I was super excited about carrying them, well I am happy to report that as of today, they are up for sale in my shop! I am really thrilled about this line, not only do they look and feel like real pottery but they are dishwasher safe, doesn’t get better. The glasses also look like real glass….this entire set might well become my every day set! Here’s a look at some of the new items, click here to see the entire line in my online shop. Tah dah……..




Can you believe it’s melamine? And it even feels like pottery….I am still amazed! And to whet your appetite for dining outdoors, thought it would be fun to take a look at all the beautiful ways to entertain outside. Don’t you just love eating outdoors? I love planning a meal al fresco. How about you? Always love to know your thoughts…..

Have I gotten you in the mood to plan a little al fresco meal of your own? I cannot wait until mother nature decides once and for all to allow the mild weather to stay put, so we can all start planning our little outdoor soirees! I for one, cannot wait because we all know everything tastes better al fresco! Wishing you a wonderful Friday and a fabulous weekend ahead.
