I was going to with my mothers and fathers in Las Vegas two weeks in the past and my Mom and I took a few hours to set a colorful table so she can entertain her pals and loved ones this summer. We shopped for Far better Properties and Gardens merchandise at Walmart for a number of pieces to brighten her poolside outdoor table.

She chose the the colorful ombre stripe tablecloth and aqua watercolor melamine plates with coordinating salad bowl. Also pictured are mom’ everyday oval basket placemats and the cobalt flatware she’ owned for fifteen years.
