MacKenzie-Childs at Lake Powell Table

Houseboating at Lake Powell during summer
has been a big part of our lives for 27 years.

This is our third houseboat, but the first time
that MacKenzie-Childs has been invited to come along!

Miss Madi K was very generous to
carry all of the fun table items from home.

The table is set in the main salon at the bar.

Black and white Courtly Check scalloped plates 
are mixed with frosted starfish plates and 
white wooden chargers to create a fresh summery table.

The setting outside the windows is quite stunning.

At Lake Powell we offer a variety of plates and 
flatware including paper plates.  The person 
in charge of the dinner that night chooses whether 
they want disposable plates or regular plates. 

The barstools are new this year.  I love how they lighten 
up the place. 

This fun pineapple flatware adds to the summer feel.

I love these large pewter napkin rings.

The silver and white polka dot placemats blend well 
with everything.

Just a little touch of fantasy adding a 
MacKenzie-Child's tassel draped on a mercury jar.

Sometimes we go back down to close up the 
houseboat and put all of the outdoor cushions away,
but this year we employed everyone to create 
a human chain, taking everything from the top two 
levels and storying the cushions and pillows in 
the lower cuddy level.  It was all done in 30 minutes!

I think we have found a new tradition!!

Goodbye Lake Powell until next summer.

We have had a crazy busy summer, but September 
and October aren't looking any less busy!  
See you soon for our Tales of the Traveling Tote 
on September 1st!  Be sure and come back to see 
where my tote and I were off to. 
It was a Bucket List item

I will be posting this on
Tablescapes Thursday

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
