Welcome to Tablescape Thursday.  I am so glad that you stopped by, and I hope that everyone is having a great week. Weather permitting, I love to entertain and serve meals outside.  However, the Oklahoma winds don’t always cooperate. Hence, the Oklahoma song verse “where the wind comes sweeping down the plain.”  During, the Spring and Summer, it’s not unusual to have 25 mile per hour winds during the day, and storms can create much faster winds. This can really aggravate me when I have plans to entertain outdoors. Many a time, I have had to change course and move everything inside.

Today’s tablescape is simple and perfect for a Summer dinner outside.  I love using bright colors in the Summer and chose blue and red for my color palette. I also added in my Great Grandmother’s American Fostoria to the tablesetting.

I chose simple red plates, blue searsucker napkins, and my Great Grandmother’s American Fostoria for the place setting.

I chose a rooster set along with candles for a simple centerpiece. It added just the perfect pop of red to the table and tied in the red plates.

I’m so glad that you visited my blog today.  I can’t wait to share with you something special that I received today from sweet and thoughtful husband. For lovers of French Country, you are not going to believe it.  I will share it with you next week. It is a true treasure. I’m still pinching myself in disbelief.  I will give you one hint it is something from one of the most beloved French Country Interior Designers.  You will have to stay tuned next week.  For now, I wish you a very happy Thursday and a wonderful weekend!!!
