cff FAVORITE FRIDAY FINDS WEEK 4 | Simple and Serene Living


Friday, April 23, 2021

Summer will be here before we know it and I don't know about you, but I am definitely looking forward to time spent outdoors and dining alfresco.


I love these simple woven placemats made of natural water hyacinth. They are perfect for a farmhouse or summer beach cottage look.

Dinner on the deck calls for pretty, colorful, and definitely unbreakable dinnerware. Who knew melamine could look so good. 

No one wants to worry about shattering glass on the patio or next to the pool, but you do want to enjoy a glass of wine in a sophisticated stemless wine glass.

And don't forget about the kids. I don't know about you but I have yet to meet a kid who hasn't dropped a glass, and bare summer feet and broken glass don't mix well. These pretty shatterproof tumblers are BPA free.

A rustic wicker vase filled with flowers from your cutting garden or pampas grass is a perfect addition to your outdoor table. 

 On The Summer Porch

Thinking of summer days on the porch brings back memories of shared laughter with family and friends, playing games with siblings, and visiting with neighbors.

This summer you can bring back those memories, while creating all new ones. 

A modern outdoor bistro set is perfect for an intimate conversation or just to sit and enjoy a glass of summer iced tea. 

Take your plants out to the porch this summer. They will love you for it, and don't forget to display them in a pretty outdoor wicker plant stand

Finally, don't forget Monopoly, the longest board game ever. It will keep the kids busy for hours. I can't guarantee there won't be squabbling, but there will be lots of interaction.

I cannot wait for a long endless summer, a summer just like we had as children.
