Tablescapes, Dining Faux Alfresco

Is it hot where you are?  😅

I was inland a few weeks ago, missing the sea breezes  🌴

It was too hot out on the patio so we dined “faux alfresco”

A cool garden awaited inside that day

    Jenna, I just revisited The Secret Garden a month ago via Audible when they had a sale. A faux alfresco table sounds much more appealing with our summer heat and humidity! Love your creativity and whimsy from your wee chairs, moss screen and chandy sunflowers 🙂

    So fun and inviting Jenna!

  4. I like the way you bring the outdoors in. 🍓

    Hi Jenna, love, love, love this post! What a lovely table centerpiece with single stem flowers which is one of my favorite ways to scape. I really love the flowers on the chandy. Yes, way to hot inland now, it will be October before I even think about alfresco dining………….

    Jenna, my comment is not showing up, maybe it will later. I love, love, love this post with single stems for centerpiece. Love the chandy………….

    Oh, I love this, Jenna! What a great idea, and your table truly looks like a patio garden area. Love those little chairs, too! 🙂

  8. Jenna, this is so beautiful and clever…and much cooler! Love the little chairs! I need to bring my tablescaping back indoors to escape the heat and humidity!

    I love the trellis! Wherever did you find that jewel? Very pretty table and I can feel the AC breeze!

    The little chairs are just precious! And the flowers in the bottles are such a pretty touch, perfect! Great idea to dine inside, with the AC, inspired by the beautiful outdoors! 🙂 ~Rhonda

  11. I am swooning over this beautiful table and all of the lovely elements! Thanks so much for sharing at Celebrate Your Story!
