Labor Day Tablescape Ideas


Although Labor Day is not officially the last day
of summer, it signals to all of us that summer 
activities are coming to an end.  So what are your
plans?  Maybe a backyard BBQ?



Or cocktails on the patio?




Cheers!  



Or a wine and cheese spread?






A pack and go lunch to take along on a drive down lovely
country roads?



Or maybe just hang out on the back porch.



Grab some tropical feel linens and a hand painted southwest
platter.



Add a small bowl of salsa and some chips.



And a couple of vintage glasses with tropical stir sticks and fill
with ice and the beverage of your choice.



Don't forget the limes.
And you are ready to party on the porch!



Bentley had a wonderful National Dog Day.
He had an extra treat, extra play sessions, extra
tummy rubs, meatballs for dinner and a long,
long walkie afterwards.  It was a good day!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  12. How pretty is all of this?! It really does make me want to invite the family outside for a little porch party this weekend. I figure if you can brave the heat in Texas, this Georgia girl ought not to be such a wimp about it. I loved all the colors and how everything looked so festive and HAPPY.

  14. Susan, you had me on the first shots with the bandana napkins with the blue and white, too! Love it! What an adorable picnic that would be!

    And then you fed us salsa and chips. My fave!

    Great homage to summer. So cheerful and happy!

  15. I have to say that your "Cocktails on the deck" idea is one of the coolest ideas ever! It looks so elegant to display crystal decanters on the deck. Love it!

  17. Any of your suggestions sound good to me, and I can assure you much of our time during the weekend will be spent on the porch taking in the beauty right in front of us. Cheers to you, too!

  18. Any of them sound wonderful to me! Everything is so beautiful. I know, the end of summer always seems like the day the kids go back to school, even though we are empty nesters! Always sad! But I do love Autumn, so that is good, but Summer is my top!

  20. They're all great Labor Day ideas, Susan, but my favorite would be the long country road. I'll be settling for my patio, though, and that's ok, too. I'm glad Bentley had a wonderful National Dog's Day!!
