Impromptu Garden Table

Christian Dior's chateau, Château de la Colle Noire , below. My brain fizzing with questions about purpose originally, and use now. Was this originally a plinth for a statue or urn?
On the right day/s, what a spot for an impromptu picnic !
Of course, it's a rabbit hole for the brain, merely seeing this picture, not the entire garden.
Immediately thinking of Martha Washington and her impromptu tables at Mount Vernon. Their home a hotel of sorts, never knowing how many would be arriving for the nite, and meals. At times they would set up long planks atop saw-horses, covered with a tablecloth, usually white, in the garden, or perhaps the piazza at front. Truly, a provincial version, of Dior's, below.
Which would be your favorite use, below, plinth or table?


Another plinth, below, at Dior's chateau.


Pics, above, here.

Front piazza at Mount Vernon, below, overlooking the river & catching a breeze.

A recent meal, below, at Mount Vernon. I would rather attend a private event at Mount Vernon, in the style of Martha. Though, would happily attend, below !

What about dining in your garden? Does the spot make you happy? It should.
Garden & Be Well, XO T
