On sunny, warm weekends I really love to set tables in weird places, where you can get perspectives that are totally new. If you move around you can make your same old yard, house or room feel totally different. For this lunch last Sunday, I took a wood table from the garage down to the end of the yard, used two outdoor chairs and two inside chairs and then set the table while Ursula painted. Lunch was pasta and a variety of drinks that Sara Kate was recipe testing. Here's a little outdoor inspiration for Outdoor Month here at Apartment Therapy. How do you eat outdoors?
At bottom is a complete list of items in the pics.
Table at left: Cherry Side Table from Scott Jordan
Black Chairs: Antique side chairs from Bobo Intriguing Objects
Folding Chairs: French park chairs from Smith & Hawken, but also available at these sources - High & Low: Folding Bistro Chairs
Small Wood Dining Table: Antique from small French shop on Bedford Street, NYC that doesn't exist anymore.
Orange & White Runners: West Elm
Yellow Napkins: Sur la Table
Tall glass: Bar mixing glass from Fish's Eddy
Low Wine Glasses: Ikea Svalka - these are great. We have about 60 of them on hand for parties.

Birdhouse in Background: My favorite project from the fall from Lazy Hill Farm
This is tasty picture of a drink recipe that Sara Kate was working on that day. It's beer with tomato juice, lime and salt with red pepper flakes around the rim....
All done! Nap time.
