this photograph came from a delightful new blog
which you can find

A Designer & A Contractor
and where you will see so many more beautiful tablescapes...
they only have 11 followers, my friends...
go on over & welcome them to bloggeritaville...

& if your dining outside, please include this smashingly
beautiful and really good 
Sauteed Cherry Tomato
dish which can be made at the last moment
in 5 minutes...

olive oil, salt, some herbs (chives/basil/parsley/cilantro, etc.)
and swish around...voila they're done...

and if you don't have a big garden, try painting this
scene on a fence, plopping in a couple of chairs...
why not?
