Good morning, my dear friends! I am so excited to be back with my tablescaping friends to bring you our summer tables. Our new leader is the sweet Rita from Panoply. Rita has such a beautiful collection of antique treasures, and l truly appreciate her being our hostess. We are all kindred spirits in our love of setting a pretty table, and we are so happy to be back together again. A list of the participants and links to their tables are at the bottom of this post.
Please, come and join me outside in the warm sunshine for some peach tea and a little “table talk” to welcome summer.
Peach tea is a favorite summer treat of mine. I may have had a few glasses while I was working on this table. The heat and humidity was terrible! We had a very unseasonably cool spring, but June is starting off with a vengeance. Daily temperatures have been in the mid 90s with high humidity. However, I love summer and will take this over the cloudy winter time any day of the week. Sunshine just makes you feel so much better! I cannot tell a lie though, I am forever grateful for air conditioning.
During a recent trip to the grocery store, I spied that the floral department was filled with oodles and oodles of glorious sunflowers. A bouquet just had to come home with me! They make the perfect simple centerpiece in my green French confit pot lending a French Country theme to the tablescape. A lemon tablecloth makes a cheerful statement to the table along with the pretty green checked napkins from Amy Montgomery Home. Green straw placemats serve as a wonderful accent and perfect backdrop to my Grandmother’s china. Last week, I purchased new everyday flatware, and you will see that I used them on my table. They are Luxe by Wallace, and I love them. Each piece in the place setting is different and is a replica of an earlier antique piece from their collection. Even though each piece is different, they all blend beautifully together.
You just can’t help but smile when you see pretty, bright, yellow sunflowers. I do believe that they are one of the most cheerful flowers around.
My sweet friends, I am so happy that you stopped by for tea and a little “table talk.” Your visits always bring sunshine to my day. I could probably go on for hours about tablescaping! Thank you for your gracious comments. Please be sure to visit my other friends on the tour. Have a most happy and blessed day!!!
