I’m weighing anchor for a little nautical fun on the pontoon and joining 19 other bloggers for an alfresco tablescape blog hop!
You’ll find tablesetting inspiration and links to more alfresco fun at the bottom of this post.
Instead a table by the lake, I took the challenge to get a little creative for this alfresco tablescape blog hop!
Boating season has been underway here since Memorial Day. In the spirit of boating season, the pontoon is decked out from stem to stern, with anchors, ship’s wheels, red, white and blue, and stars and stripes for a little nautical fun!
We’re picnicking on the pontoon under the cover of the dock, enjoying some welcome shade in mid 90 degree temps, the next best thing to a floating picnic on the pontoon.
Anchor salad plates in melamine, are first mate to red and navy striped dinner plates, for carefree summer dining.
They’re joining enamel boat dishes, while flatware and napkin rings provide a nautical rope detail, to pair with the rim of the plates.
Towels provide a tablecloth and absorbent seating. . .
While pillows keep us anchored for our pontoon picnic!
A nautical insulated picnic tote is handy for picnicking and toting snacks. . .
Help yourself to some Popseas Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn.
A life ring keeps our picnic food buoyed~ an assortment of cheese, meat, olives and almonds for shipshape snacking. . .
Served with boatloads of crackers, strawberries and grapes.
