Orange Alstroemeria Tablescape | Life and Linda

Orange Alstroemeria Tablescape

It was way too hot to sit outdoors this last week.  It is finally cooler.  Since Lilly went home yesterday, I have time to also set a table outside of our study for two.
We also have new french doors that were recently installed.  We spend a lot of time in out study, so it is wonderful to have the french doors.  The new screen is on the way.  The sound of the fountain is very soothing.
Pretty in green with bright orange accents.  These Alstroemeria lasts quite awhile.
This outdoor rug is very fun with the large flowers.  We  actually have three of them from Costco.
Pier1 white chargers break up the green from the tablecloth and plates/
A lovely place to sit and enjoy lunch with my hubby.

  1. Just gorgeous! Your mention of Pier One (a fave store of mine too) reminds me that I haven't been there since Christmas! Or maybe it was Easter? Anyway, too long ago! I must sneak over there this long weekend perhaps.

  3. Linda, you have your own slice of paradise. Glad you can enjoy it! My Alstromeria is doing great, and I've felt guilty about cutting it for a bouquet. LOL

  7. Absolutely lovely, LInda. This is my favorite color of Alstroemeria. I buy Alstroemeria frequently because they last for two or more weeks. Beautiful alfresco setting! Happy Weekend - Happy 4th!

  10. Hi Linda, this space and table for two is stunning. I love the colors you pulled together here and that anchor rug is spectacular. Those flowers do last a long time. I try and get those whenever they are available. How nice to hear the soothing sound of the fountain. Hope it cools down a bit for you to enjoy the weekend and upcoming 4th of July. Hugs, xo

  16. Your setting looks so lovely, Linda! I especially love the rug and the bold pattern! It has a purple background, doesn't it? Is it new? I looked on Costco's website but couldn't find it. Do you know the brand or name?

    1. Thanks Gail. Actually the background is brown with some rust and green. If I ever see an awesome purple background rug, I will be sure to contact you. Walters Cafe au Lait is the rug.
