In early September, it was still hot enough for a family afternoon in and around the pool. With five granddaughters under five years of age, it gets its fair share of use in the summer and we were eager to enjoy the outdoors while the good weather lasted. 


The dessert plates are a set from Pottery Barn from a couple of years ago. They feature four different stylized houses in lovely clear colours. The blue is especially appealing. 


The set included a set of salt & pepper shakers. I couldn’t resist.


The dinner plates are Country Heritage from Villeroy and Boch (the pattern is discontinued, but can be obtained from Replacements from time to time. The goblets are Graham and the tumblers are Isabella both by Juliska (the green colour is discontinued, but you can still get Graham and Isabella in clear).  The napkins are linen hemstitched, also from Pottery Barn and come in various colours.

After drying off wriggling little girls, we settled in for an early dinner.
