It is so hot and humid here in Florida. I’m already looking forward to a slight cool down in the fall. I have my fingers crossed that there isn’t a huge storm like Irma this year. Toward the end of summer everything seems to be brighter – the sun and my colorful crotons. Today I’m sharing an end-of-summer table in blue and yellow.
The tablecloth is one I made when I first started blogging. I found a bag of remnants at the thrift store and made a tablecloth and curtains in bright blues and yellows. It’s perfect for August and September.
The place settings start with a white charger and then my vintage blue and white plates. They’re one of my favorite patterns.
This past spring I found the sunflower saucers at the thrift store. I knew the minute I saw them that they would be perfect with this tablecloth.
I added blue glasses and checked napkins tied with white rick rack to complete the place setting.
The centerpiece is a milk glass vase filled with summer flowers in yellow and white. It sits on a little colorful doily made by sister-in-law 30 years ago. I can’t tell you how many times I pull this little doily out to add color to my table. It even looks great against the natural wood. (I’ve told my sister-in-law that I own more of her creations than she does. She agreed. She has been very good to me.)
The salt and pepper shakers are thrift store vintage and displayed in my kitchen year round.
I hope you enjoyed this colorful table.
