Tablescape Tuesday: Brunchin’ On The Porch

“Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have, for such sacrifices are pleasing to God”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭13:16

I hope all of you are enjoying weather like we have had here in the Appalachian foothills…it’s as close to perfect as it gets!  And yes, that means an outdoor tablescape this week! But today we won’t be in my garden or on my patio…we are taking it to Katy’s front porch!  If you remember, Katy is our chosen daughter and we have been decorating her craftsman-style bungalow for several months…on a budget.  She has done an outstanding job of making her front porch inviting and vibrant with a fun mix of colors.  While I set the table, Katy prepared a wonderful brunch…it was such a sweet time!  Come on over to Katy’s…you are invited to join us on the front porch!

See more of Katy’s home here and here.

What a happy porch to enjoy brunch!

Don’t you just love the bright red door?

Brunch was served on Katy’s bistro table…the fun fabric was found at Hobby Lobby!

I think I have rubbed off on Katy with my love of color!

French-press coffee and juice was served from a vintage chair.

We used my green dinner plates and black and white salad plates.  Katy had the cute fruit bowls and mugs!  Can you tell that I adhere strongly to the late Charles Faudree’s motto, “It is not about the match, but about the mix”!

A small vintage wagon that Katy found at a yard sale holds bright yellow pots of petunias and coleus!

The cedar shakes give so much texture to Katy’s porch…love it!


 “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold
in a setting of silver”
Proverbs‬ ‭25‬:‭11‬

I think that Snickers rules the house and the porch!

After enjoying fresh fruit, orange and poppy seed muffins, and cranberry scones, we whiled away a gorgeous Saturday morning with our mugs of Snickerdoodle coffee!


Our party for two on the porch!

…meanwhile back at home.  I have the sweetest husband who wanted to take charge of Mother’s Day plans.  He is the master griller and much, much more…but let’s face it, men do not have the gift of tablescaping!  This, folks, is Butch’s version of Tablescape Tuesday!

    Love your Butch! It’s the thought that counts. Seems you have rubbed off on him also as he chose blue Solo cups for the table. It’s all about color for me too. Like your Butch, my sweetie would have chosen Solo cups but maybe for the reason that he wouldn’t have needed to wash them, just dump them in the trash. Still I’m not throwing him back in, he’s a keeper!!!

    • So funny, Alice! Butch said I should have taken a picture after the paper plates that had a nice blue and white design had been place on the table! Butch is a keeper, also! He had very little clean-up, tossed it in the trash!

  2. Katy’s porch is bursting with happiness! Love the red door, and the wagon full of yellow pots! Men are not the best tablescapers, but how sweet he tried and he did use a color scheme! He gets an A+ for me for the bright fresh roses!

    Pam, Love the red door. The porch is very inviting and colorful. I’m glad you had a good time with your friend. Your husband’s tablescape has placemats, glasses and flowers. It’s the basics! Sylvia D.

    Katy’s porch is so fun! I love the vibrant colors and the red door. I had a red door at my previous home and I miss it. Love of mixture of dishes as well. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

    I’d think anyone who saw Katy’s porch would want to stop and sit awhile. After a few minutes there, a visitor would be smiling and light hearted.

We love your comments!
