The painting shows many playful children and adults gathered around a table under a pergola. Children are engrossed in various activities like luring a dog, teasing their companions, eating and drinking, etc.The light coming through the vines creates a pleasant and dappled effect of light and shadows while use of various greens with rapid application appears pleasant.
