Our Outdoor Dining Space & a Cheery Simple Summer Tablescape



Summer is upon us.

I always count summer as beginning on the May long weekend and ending after Labour Day.

Though sometimes we are fortunate enough to enjoy the summer weather almost until Canadian Thanksgiving.

One of the best things about summer is getting to spend time outside on our back deck.

We love to have our morning coffee out there on the weekends, and enjoy having a drink or cup of tea out there in the evenings. And we also love to enjoy dinner on our outdoor dining table as often as possible.

Today I’m sharing a look at our outdoor dining table all dressed up for a simple summer meal with friends or family – bar cart close at hand, of course.

Outdoor Dining Area and Cheery Lakefront Outdoor Tablescape.

We love our square dining table and chairs. We used to have two long tables joined together, but I am so happy we made the switch to a square set. It fits perfectly on our deck, and having the bench allows us to look over to the lake with a minimum of interruption in our view. If you are looking, you can find the perfect outdoor patio set for your space through Wayfair – and it’s so exciting that they are available now in Canada!

Add some candles, fresh flowers,  a fresh and fun outdoor tablecloth and some lively outdoor dinnerware. It’s all you really need for a fresh & cheery outdoor table.

Simple is definitely the way to go in the summer.

There is the yellow and white tablecloth and lamps outside.

Clear blue glasses are on the table outside.

There is a candle in the middle of the table.

Keeping cold beverages close at hand makes entertaining that much more relaxing, and an outdoor bar cart can double as a spot for extra food or condiments during mealtime.

Time with friends and family; outdoors; fresh air & sunshine; nature all around.

It doesn’t get much better then that, does it?

This is awesome! Pin it to remember it!

Next week I will be back with another little DIY project for our deck – and a big change that I am really excited to share with you all!

Until then, I hope you find some time to relax and enjoy a meal outdoors with family and friends.

  1. I love everything about this! I’d also love to have my feet dangling in the water reading a good book this weekend. I love the bright colors & outdoorsie decor.
