Welcome to my new rustic (aka gravel) patio for outdoor summer dining! Today I’m joining a wonderful group of bloggers to bring you a variety of summer tablescapes. Thanks to Alicia at A Burst of Beautiful for organizing this fun event.
Last year we put in a gravel patio after finishing the deck by our new pond. Recently I found the patio set I wanted at Art Van furniture. I knew I wanted something with a bench. A lot of outdoor dining sets I liked had bad reviews, which is why it took a while to find the right one. People complained the finishes didn’t hold up to the outdoor elements.
For my first outdoor summer dining on the new patio, I decided to set the table with my fish dishes. It seems only appropriate since the patio is next to the pond where my fishies live. You can see part of the pond and waterfall in the background.
A beautiful pink hibiscus had to come home with me from the nursery. I knew it would look great out here.
All that’s needed for a centerpiece is a simple tropical-looking plant in a plain white pot.
It’s so nice to have our backyard done now with both a deck and rustic patio to enjoy the pond and outdoor summer dining!
