We are out of school here in the deep south and that means it is officially summer! I realize that the calendar may say that summer officially begins around June 23, but its been warm here for quite a while. I also think everyone agrees that summer truly begins on Memorial Day weekend. I have been enjoying the holiday weekend by hanging out in the pool, but I did create a simple summer tablescape to share.
Seth and I went to an antique store on Friday and I picked up a precious milk glass vase and a really old Ball canning jar with the wonderful zinc lid. I had several of these beauties before Katrina. I just love how simple and sweet they are when filled with fresh flowers. I had not bought any since Katrina but I saw these the other day and just had to have one - okay, I really wanted to buy three, but I didn't want to get carried away. Anyway, here is my simple summer tablescape! I hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
I started with fresh flowers in a jar as the centerpiece. It didn't look like
quite right to me (I mean there is simple and then there is ......not enough :-)
I looked around the house to see what I could come up with to enhance the arrangement.
I added a few pieces from my collection of McCarty and ended up with a simple
centerpiece of fresh "country" flowers
surrounded by McCarty bunnies and birds.
Bunnies and birds just say "summer" to me :-)
I have Longaberger Pottery in blue, green, red, yellow, orange and purple.
For today's tablescape I utilized yellow and blue and just a
bit of red to tie in with the quilted placemats.
I love the simple basket weave design on the Longaberger plates.
This colorful dinnerware is so cheerful! We use it every day!
Gerber daisies are my favorite flowers ~ they are so simple and pretty!
As always, thanks for visiting!!
