Spring lunch on the patio..will you join me?

Grab an old milk bottle carrier and fill it with old or new mason jars. Next add your assorted munchies like carrot sticks, celery, pickles, pretzel rods...don't forget the silverware.

Coconut Creme Pie or Banana Cream Pie is delightful! Add height to your outdoor table with an inverted wire basket. A flat table is a BORING table! Don't forget the candles...yes, I break the rules and light candles during the day! It's all about the little touches, after all they could be citronella to keep bugs away!

Spring greens, fresh strawberries, raspberries, pecans and drizzle with a light salad dressing. Add in some crusty rolls from Panera and you have a yummy and light on the tummy lunch. Don't forget the lemonade with fresh lemon or lime slices!

Grab your tray and join me, won't you?

Oh that all looks so tempting! It doesn't help that I'm hungry. The first picture is my favorite. What a great way to reuse old jars.

One day this week I am going to write a post about recycling the jars we have in our kitchen and all the wonderful things that they can be used for. I accidentally erased my pictures of the jars with all the veggies in them... can I use your picture? It's much better than mine were to begin with! I will promise to link your blog to mine!
