I chose a bamboo runner with blue stitching as the backdrop for my centerpiece.
Various beach inspired decor was arranged down the center.
Aqua coloured jars, shells and a starfish were included.
This Fitz & Floyd shell that I've had for years was the inspiration for the coral/orange part of the colour scheme.
I filled these Dollar Store buckets with faux beach grasses.
It was such a wonderful summer evening for our BBQ...
...and we had the protection from the sun's heat while eating in our little cabana.
I set the food on a separate table in the backyard and everyone helped themselves. Missing from this pic are the "burger fixings" plate and a bowl of fried onions.
What could be better than burgers and beer with family on a beautiful summer evening?!!
After dinner, we enjoyed time around the fire.
...we each made our own dessert!
Yum! Perfect summertime treat!
It was a lovely evening and after so much time in quarantine, it was wonderful to be able to expand our "bubble" and have my parents over for a visit.
I hope we get to do it again before the summer ends!
Thanks for visiting!
