Those are gorgeous! I would gladly dine at any of those tables. We ate out every night last week - the weather was divine! But this week, the heat wave has done us in. Soon, I hope, soon ...

One of my favorite parts of summer - eating outdoors! It would be especially nice in one of the beautiful settings you have posted!

MEG MITCHELL said...

Great pictures ... I am having a dinner party outside this weekend ... if the heat dies down. It's so summery to spend lovely time with your guests in the open air.

All so beautiful and inspiring. I can't wait to dine like that (aspire to anyway) this summer. There's nothing like a warm summer evening and a table of friends and good food. Yum.

Mom2Da'Gorgeouses said...

Beautiful!! I would love to do that around these parts, minus the large horseflies (our neighbors have horses). Any ideas? LOL!

A Lasting First Impression said...

Those pictures are amazing! So romantic! I love the table in the field! One of our favorite wineries host dinner in the vineyards....the table is amazing, the view is breath taking, and somehow the food just tastes better outside!

Prencie said...

Beautiful! I adore outdoor dining (as long as the bugs stay away!) Nothing better than sitting under the stars dining and wining:) I've been looking for a while for a french bistro set and found one on ebay!! I didn't win though:( I was so upset! It was teal and yellow (I would paint it white, of course) and was from France. *Sigh* guess it wasn't meant to be.

Sweet, which makes me think of afternoon tea in a garden. Lovely images. ♦olive

I'm sure this is day to day living for Cro, but - like you - it reminds me of rare and well-loved moments.

A Gift Wrapped Life said...

The absolute best part of summer............I think the last pic is my favourite. Get those linens out, and the chandeliers. Much love XO

I've put my outdoor dining dreams on hold until our fly infestation comes to an end...

Junk Girl said...

I couldn't agree more...and I just love setting a table with my white ironstone dishes and a few "junky" items!

I'd love to linger over lunch at any one of those tables - perhaps with a big bowl of pesto pasta.

Stop by my blog sometime.

Oh divine! Thanks for sharing these!

Somehow, our outdoor eating area begins at the top of my to-do list, and always ends up at the bottom. So sad. It would make such a difference. Especially as we are actually having a summer here this year!

Oh well. I can dream too I guess!

yes, please. :)
