backyard summer picnic

it's been so long since i have done a tablescape.  i am so excited that my sister, melissa, is down from texas, and we could do one together.  we decided we wanted to do a pretty backyard picnic  to celebrate the end of summer. :)

some goodies
and yummy drinks
pretty pink candles

raspberry lemonade
silverware in a mason jar wrapped in a ribbon
summer staple..watermelon :)
place setting


green and blue vases to accent the tablecloth


a butterfly even came to visit. ;)
as the sun started setting, we lit the candles for dusk
pretty candlelight

dusk quickly turned into night...
and the apple pie was hot out of the oven, ready to be served :)

dessert by candlelight, under the moon.  what a perfect summer night.
twinkle lights to offer more lighting

and my little ella always there to blow out the candles. her way of ending the night.
bring on the fall! ;)
