Beautiful Outdoor Dining Ideas

Welcome Friends!

I am so thrilled that spring is here. The birds are singing. The sun is shining. The flowers are blooming. I am so excited to share our dining pavillion with you today. It’s one of my favorite areas of our farm.

Hydrangeas, roses and wisteria, oh my!

When we purchased our farm, there was a concrete pad that was about eight feet by six feet in the side yard. I have no idea why it was there or what the old homeowners used it for. I kept thinking about what we could do with it, when I can up with the idea of building a dining pavillion. The pavillion is 20’x 12′.

I love how the pavillion looks. It’s so inviting and a wonderful place to share a meal with friends and family.

I added the swings to one end of the pavillion. It’s a favorite spot to sit and look out over the garden.

An outbuilding on the farm is never complete without a cupola and a weather vane.

This table was made from a cedar tree that we had to take down on the farm. It took eight men to carry it and put it into place. This lovely table sits 16-20 people comfortably.
The white draperies, twinkle lights and chandeliers make the pavillion elegant and cozy.

I hope that you enjoyed seeing th dining pavillion. Please folow us on, Instagram @peacockridge, on YouTube and Pinterest.

Blessings to you,

    Gorgeous! How long did it take for your wisteria to get that tall and thick?

    1. Thank you so much. This pic is from the second year. It loves it here.

  3. How lovely!! Your garden is beautiful and the swings are a wonderful finishing touch.


    I Agree! This is probably one of my Favorite spots on the property, besides the Deck & Fireplace 🙂 I hope to see you and Ron Soon!

    Oh that is beautiful. The elegant and relaxing style would invite anyone to feel at peace and have a great time visiting. Lovely. I also really like the amount of seating. Wonderful for family gatherings.

  6. Oh, I am swooning over this! All of my favorite things in one place. Stunning! I love that table and those porch swings! Lovely.❤️❤️❤️

  7. Hi Renae! I know I answered your comment over on WP, but thought I’d say how much I enjoyed seeing your dining pavillion!! Your yard and home are fabulous!!! We had hoped to buy another property which has a 1/2 acre back garden and would have given me the views like this but it wasn’t meant to be. I do miss wide open spaces, something we had at the campgrounds we lived at over four years!

    Thank you again for sharing at Share Your Style and I was happy to feature your post at SYS #298 this week, as you know. <3

    Spring hugs to you,
    Barb 🙂

  8. Your outdoor dining pavilion is gorgeous! I imagine eating under it with friends and family. Then sitting on a swing and looking at the stars. A girl can dream, right?
    Have a wonderful spring.

    1. I really love it. Your gardens are lovely.
      Hugs and blessings to you.

  9. Renae, your outdoor pavilion is so dreamy! I love how you’ve created an outdoor room with the curtain and chandelier. How wonderful it must be to gather with family and share an al fresco meal! The gardens are gorgeous, too! It was fun hopping with you 🙂

    1. Thank you so much, Rebecca. It is one of my favorite spots on the farm. Hugs and blessings to you.

  10. What can I say other than wow? Absolutely stunning to say the least. Love the wisteria especially. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Thank you so much. I am a sucker for wisteria.
      Hugs and blessings to you.

  11. So inviting! I love the twinkle lights and the swings at one end, what great touches. And I am a huge sucker for a piece of furniture with some history to it; how fun that your epic sized table was made of wood from the same property!

Beautiful interiors don’t have to come with an outrageous price tag. My style is what I like to call Vintage French Farmhouse, I love mixing decorating styles, especially opposites like the glitz of a chandelier dripping in crystals with a chair upholstered in worn aged leather. Refined, yet not too formal-but, livable, elegant traditional design, adding warmth and vintage elements.
