[…] While I was preparing that blog I met up with four very lovely ladies who had such good ideas for outdoor dining so I thought I would feature them here. First Karin of Karins Kottage has such a lovely blog filled with all sorts of ideas. One idea that I loved was that she turned a paddle board into a serving table! Is that not genius? Function and flare. I love it. Below is a photo but click here to see her blog. […]
[…] Will the food be placed on the table where everyone is eating? Is the table large enough to accomodate this? If not consider a piece of furniture to serve as the buffet. If you are in the garden, maybe it is a potting bench? If you are in the shed, maybe you have a tool cabinet? Old rustic tables or benches can work too. Or how about a paddle board? For this amazing serving table check out Karins Kottage “Dinner Party by the Lake”. […]

Awww thank you so much! It was a magical night for sure. So happy to have you stopping by to say hi! I really appreciate it. I need to put another lake party together again soon because it was so much fun!
What a beautiful party!
What a great party! Love the speed friend exercise! I’m so curious…what was the question you had the women answer? Thanks so much!
Hi Patti! Thanks so much for stopping by! To answer your question- Every-time they moved to the next person they were given a new question… things like, where would your dream vacation be?, what was your first date like? Where did you go to school? Just questions to get them talking to one another. It was amazing!

Alaura! Thank you so much for your sweet comments! I really appreciate you taking time to read my post! We really had an absolute amazing time together! So many fun ideas all came together with lots of help from everyone! I think it really allowed the women to bond and enjoy just being outside and relaxing! I think I need to plan another one soon! 🥰
What a beautiful setting! I love the idea of ‘speed friendshipping’ too, what a fabulous ice-breaker idea – pinned for later!
Thank you so much! The speed friend shipping game turned out so much better than I thought it would. It was a powerful experience for so many! Thank you for pinning it!

How did you create the fruit tier platters on the pole? Were they welded or something else. Any help would be greatly appreciated
It is a 3 tier stand that comes that way. I will post a link to one similar.

What a fun post! Looks like a great party – loved the paddle board idea, will have to try that at our next beach party when I am home in the Pacific Northwest.
We had so much fun putting this together! It felt like we brought everything out of our houses (mostly mine haha) but it was so worth it! Pillows, rugs, all my galvanized metal serving dishes and my paddle board! It was so much fun!
