Summer Table

Whew, I don't know how most of you do it, 3 posts in a week just about did me in!!  And some people post daily ~ I am in awe!

This is a table from last summer, I just got the new tablecloth and placemats and knew they would go great with the napkin rings I had stashed away.  

This table was for a real family dinner and I never got around to making a post.  It came in handy when I wanted to join in the summer entertaining party at Sherry's


We were going to eat outside but it was over 100 and I thought we'd melt.


It was just a fun, summery, colorful table.




We had jelly bean martinis.


I used wicker chargers and my white tin plates.



I use the bamboo flatware a lot in the summer.  It came from Ross a few summers ago.




I found the fun pop at Central Market.  They had all 6 colors!!




The napkin rings have all 6 colors in them too.



The grandchildren loved it.  No way their moms would let them eat all those jelly beans.  But they had some!


Summer Fun


Love the light in this shot.



Thanks for stopping by.

I am joining Sherry for the Block Party.
And Susan for Tablescape Thursday.

Come join us.

Sue, I can honestly say that I think this one of my favorite tables from blog land ever. I totally love the way you pulled the different colors out of the tablecloth. I have a similar (but more pastel)one, and I wasn't thinking about doing that with it. I was going to be boring and just pull out one color. (Most likely, pink of course) I LOVE the way yours looks with the whimsy of different colors. It's just wonderful.

And the pop and jelly beans? PERFECT!

And I love the light playing across it too!
