Patriotic Alfresco Table
Welcome to our backyard here in coastal Maine! With the fourth of July around the corner, I was inspired to put together this Patriotic alfresco table using all of my mother’s various china patterns, silverware, platters, and glasses to create this outdoor summer breakfast table in our backyard. If you are new to my blog, we inherited this coastal Maine home this past fall from my parents and have been restoring and decorating it all with my parent’s antiques ever since. You can follow along in the series “In My Mother’s Home…” here on the blog, I’d love to have you join me!!
A Red Bucket
Let’s start with this old rustic red bucket!
A bucket, I couldn’t resist for $5 at a second-hand shop. With all that chippiness and color, I knew it would be perfect for the backyard this summer. Today, I am using it as a centerpiece for my Patriotic alfresco table along with some simple lilac branches and a few old garden stakes that were my mother’s.
I kept this alfresco breakfast table simple with muffins, croissants, bagels, and fruits.
I used a glass cloche to cover the bagels.
A blue bottle from the Crate & Barrel outlet is filled with fresh water for the table.
An antique Russian Lomonosov Imperial Porcelain tea set that was my mother’s is used to serve coffee.
I used all the various patterns I could find in the cupboards to create this Patriotic alfresco table.
The red and white runner on the table is a simple window valance that was in a closet. Perfect for the table.
I picked a small glass filled with daisies from the yard for a soft outdoor touch.
