We’ve been spending more time outside on our covered porch than we have inside. After I brought home this beautiful Better Homes and Gardens Floral Patterned Dinnerware, I noticed how shabby my table looked! I grabbed some dark gray and white paint, this was the result, a refreshed sleek look with bold stripes (I’ll put those details in another post). I am loving it! Creating this sleek striped table was easy and keeping it comfy with pillows and unbreakable melamine gives me piece of mind knowing if something gets dropped on the concrete, it will survive! It’s funny how the addition of something new can start a landslide of projects! Luckily it was a fast fix! 

(This floral dinnerware is in-store only right now.)

Here are a few of my tips:

Better Homes and Gardens dinnerware perfect for entertaining

  • Mixing Patterns – Sleek stripes and cozy florals – perfect for porch dining.

Putting together the table for outdoor dining easy tips

Entertaining outside with melamine and fresh flowers

Stripes and florals make a bold statement perfect for dining outside

  • Dinnerware – Setting the table with these pretty melamine dishes just made the stripes pop. I love this mix of florals and stripes. The Alder stainless steel rose colored gold silverware is from the open stock area at Walmart – where you can grab as many pieces as you need. I thought this color tone would look great with the dinnerware.

Bold and beautiful dessert service on wood slices from Better Homes and Gardens

  • Dessert Bar – Make it easy on yourself, carve out a dessert bar for self service. I used the Better Homes and Gardens Acacia Chargers to present the cake on. I lined it with butcher paper for easy clean-up. I cut the pieces to fit each wood slice.

If you must sample the cake first then add fruit where it is missing a piece of cake

  • Sample – If you must sample the cake, add fruit, likes it’s spilling out 😉 They will think it was supposed to look like that!

Farmhouse desserts served on wood slices with flowers in galvanized tub


Farmhouse flowers in a galvanized bucket perfect for any decor

  • Florals – I grabbed a couple of bunches of flowers from the produce department and spread them around. Some on the table in a chicken wire candle holder and bunch in the galvanized metal server (both from Walmart in-store). I wanted every piece of the galvanized section! They had beverage servers, stands, buckets, trays….so much to love!
