Snacks and Iced Tea By The Pool

I am still pretty busy so I just did a simple tablescape by the pool. Tablescape Thurs. is hosted by Susan of and it is one of my favorite memes. Please visit her and her participants. You will see a lot of creative tables.
We have been swimming everyday since the pool was done. I prepared iced tea just to cool us off and a few peach cobbler, brownies and Oreo cookies to snack on. I bought the mermaid pitcher set at Marshall's in Baton Rouge
about a month ago. AJ loves mermaids so I thought I would use the set during her visit.

Then, I found these mermaid candle holders at Marshall's in Florida and I thought they would be perfect to use with the mermaid pitcher set.

I just took this pic before dark. I love the light in the pool that changes to different colors. It's more evident when it is darker.
Thanks, Susan, for another week of tablescaping. Thank you everyone for stopping by. I sure enjoyed your visit!

Brenda said...

Okay, I will just come out and say I'm quite envious of your gorgeous new pool and the surrounding trees in the background giving you such a sense of privacy. That being said, you did a great job coming up with details befitting said pool. The blue in the table setting is PERFECT against the water in your pool.

What a great set, I'd love to buy stuff like this, I just don't have room to keep it? I might have to do some clearing out, I'm rather obsessed with tablescapes now and I've only just done my first one. Hop on over if you get a chance.
Hugs Denise
