Dining Among the Palms

I set a tropical table down by our pool with palm tree plates.  I have had this dishes for a long time.  The rattan chargers go well with this look.  I am loving the makeover we gave our pool. 
Bamboo flatware fits in nicely.  The napkins are also palm leaves.  The table is surrounded by palms and tropicals flowers and plants.  This makes for  fun summer poolside  dining. 

I noticed some of my acrylic glassware is fading when I put them in the dishwasher. Anyone have any tips?

 The island has filled in beautifully with tropical plants.

New additions are the two pink flamingos on each side of the waterfall.
I hope you are enjoying the summer.  With the Covid-19, the rules keep changing.  Now our beauty salon is closed again.

Hello, welcome to LifeandLinda. I am from Northern California. I enjoy blogging, Designing Blogs, Decorating, cooking, entertaining, gardening and clogging. I hope you enjoy your visit.


  1. Wow what a beautiful place to dine and enjoy some wine.
    I would suggest hand washing or remove from the dishwasher before the drying cycle. The heat from the dishwasher will fade your dishes for sure.

  2. As you know, I have the same dishes and I also have those same wine glasses:) You have the PERFECT setting for this table. I wish I could come and sit there with you!! Have a beautiful week.

  3. Hi Linda, sweet friend,
    what a lovely place for dining! And, I love the tablesettings! Wonderful!
    Wishing you a wonderful week,
    sending lots of Love, Claudia xo

  4. Such a wonderful setting, Linda. We hand wash anything painted or with a decal. Hand washing is really best for saving your good pieces.♥️

  5. Idyllic! And well deserved!

  6. Your pond and whole pool area is absolutely beautiful, Linda. It is very much like having your own personal resort. And...the best part is that you really enjoy it and make the most of it. Hope you have a blessed week. xo Diana

  7. Ooh I like the pattern on the dishes and the way you displayed the napkins! I had some acrylic drinkware that I put in the dishwasher and right away they started to fade so I resorted to hand washing them. Your pool and surrounding gardens are gorgeous, a real paradise!

  8. What a lovely, tropical 🌴 table, Linda. Your flamingoes add the perfect touch. I’d love to spend time at your poolside. 💕

  9. This looks so tropical and pretty. Love the pink flamingos. Super cute.

  10. Great table and setting!

  11. Linda, you're right, the rattan chargers and bamboo flatware look really smart with your tropical tableware. That pool and all your plants is like living on a resort. It's a real blessing to have those luxuries anytime, but especially during this pandemic. So far our salons are still open, so are bars and restaurants. But numbers warn we should be doing better!

  12. Draga Linda,
    Este incantator decorul tau de masa, intr-o asemenea oaza cu spirit de vacanta!
    Multa naturalete si veselie se simte.

  13. This is a beautiful spot for your tropical dining table. The tablecloth is prefetching for the rattan chargers and plates. I love you can enjoy the pool renovations and your beautiful tropical gardens. How wonderful to have the tropics in your own backyard, especially now while we are all staying home. I love what you and Paul have created, a little slice of paradise!

  14. There is nothing better than a tropical table by a pool in paradise! Lovely Linda!

  15. Girl, would I ever love to dine with you at your lovely place! Love everything about this! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  16. Everything is beautiful, Linda. Your setting is like you are in Hawaii. Love your tropical table scape.

  17. I can't imagine that any restaurant could compete with that venue!! Lovely.

  18. Dear Linda,
    found you on Mias page and was curious and now I have wanderlust. What an amazing place!!! And for sure I love your table setting. The plates are gorgeous! This willn't be my last visit here.
    All my best from Austria an happy days

  19. You made such a beautiful tropical table setting by the pool Linda! It's a nice way to enjoy the summer relaxing by the pool. Please stay safe and be careful. Enjoy the week Linda.

  20. Such a gorgeous setting for a pretty table. I love all the changes you've made to the pool and island. Isn't it funny - I've set a table this week with the same West Indies palm plates I found several years ago in a store that bills itself as everyone's forgotten attic.
