62nd Table Top Tuesday

Welcome to the 62nd Table Top Tuesday.  I hope you all had a very Blessed Easter with family and friends. 

Today I am taking you on a tour of my daughter's backyard and some revamping they have been doing.

They just recently had their BBQ rebuilt and I love how fabulous it turned out.  They have food drawers and a cooler on the backside.  The top is done in travertine and it is stunning.  The contractor also installed undercounter lights all around the outside, so at night it has the most amazing glow.


They also decided to replace some of their patio furniture.  She found this fabulous table.  Love the chunky base and top and there are also extension leaves on the ends so it will easily seat 12.  The rug has leaves with tones of green and brown.


Parsons chairs covered in outdoor fabric are so comfortable and look so elegant.


She repainted her bakers rack in ORB and we had a fun play day decorating it.  Nothing new, we just shopped both our stashes for things that might work.


She used a mix of rustic, white and silver.  This will be such a great piece to decorate for all her entertaining.





She was having a buffet BBQ for a few friends, so she fixed the basket with plates, napkins and silverware that she can just sit on the table and everyone can grab their own tablesettings.





Saturday she hosted a birthday party for my grandsons, so the table is set for another BBQ.


Such beautiful weather, it was wonderful to be able to eat outside.





I think her dining area turned out so pretty..  They are working on the livingroom side of the patio.  I can't wait to show you when it is all done.  It is looking fabulous so far.

I am so looking forward to seeing what you have all been up to.  It is always amazing.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I always enjoy your visits.

  6. That is truly beautiful, Marty! She must get the decorating genes from her clever mother. I really love those Parsons chairs. Don't believe I've seen any quite like them.

  12. This is just like out of a magazine or a movie. Just so beautiful.
    Living here in West Texas where the wind and sand blow all spring, the blazing hot sun and bugs in the summer, a few evenings in the fall is about the only time we can sit outside. We never eat outside..just too hot.
    So glad she is able to enjoy such a beautiful outdoor room.

  21. Absolutely goegeous. Your daughter is like you, she can really decorate! How lucky you are to have her close by. And how lucky all of you are to be in sunny Arizona, with warm weather. It is cold here in northern Utah. I can't wait to bbq and eat outside on the patio. Thanks for sharing such beautiful pictures of a lovely space. Hugs, Karie

  25. Gorgeous patio, Marty. I know you and your daughter had some fun decorating it. The baker's rack looks fantastic. You have inspired me to get to work on mine. I always love white mixed in - so pretty. I have to be careful for the birds though. They always come and make nests in "the decor" on my baker's rack!Linda

  26. What a great baker's rack, Marty! I have a smaller one on my patio, but I don't have overhead coverage, so it has the perfect "shabby" look to it. : ) When you said your daughter painted hers with ORB I did think about it, but I'm sure being out in the sun and weather mine would probably not fair well. It's decorated so nicely ~ I love it!

  59. Ok,,,,,, GORGEOUS!

    What an awesome backyard! She is lucky she can just go shopping at your decor supply house! :) Has it been windy at your house? Every afternoon it just blows over here. It makes the out door entertaining a little awkward. We had to move the party indoors Sunday!

  63. I can't imagine having such a beautiful outdoor space. Our weather with the winds and rain we get in the summer would never allow it, even if I could afford it! Everything is just perfect.
