I am very lucky to have a "handy" husband. He does not have a lot of time to build, and it takes a lot of "convincing" but once he finally gets around to it, he does a great job. I have been trying to talk him into making us a pallet table for about a year. Finally found the right pallets for it and got it built this weekend.
I LOVE IT!
Long enough to fit at least six, maybe eight. It is the perfect size for a group or just for two. We love to eat outside all summer long and into the fall so we will use it often. We still plan to stain it, but it did not stop us from giving it a test run for dinner last night.
A pretty table cloth, some favorite dishes and flowers are all you need to set the scene.
So beautiful and cool under the late evening shade of the trees.
Dinner itself was simple. Summertime heirloom tomatoes were the star of the show.
Delicious fresh bread, smoked mozzarella make the best open faced sandwiches!
Shrimp cocktail with spicy cocktail sauce as well....
Too hot to bake so dessert came from Publix, I love their bakery!
All together it made for a beautiful late evening dinner under the trees. Better than any restaurant if you ask me. The evening was so cool and comfortable after the heat of the day, we sat outside for a couple hours, eating, sipping lemonade and just chatting. A wonderful way to spend a Saturday night after a day spend floating in the pool.
Bruno enjoyed having dinner outside as well.
I almost have my entire outside living room set completed! Just a few small touches and it will be finished, just in time for the cooler fall evenings spent watching movies on the projector or around the fire pit roasting marshmallows and eating popcorn.
Hope you are enjoying these beautiful summer evenings!
