I am joining Cuisine Kathleen for her Farewell To Summer Table Challenge. When I think of summer's end in Kansas, I think of the sunflowers (Kansas' state flower) that grow along every roadway in east/central Kansas, especially the secondary roads. Must be summer isn't quite over as I haven't seen any of these beauties, yet, this year. I can tell you the temperatures, which have been in the high nineties the last 10 days or so tell me summer is still going strong in Kansas!
The table cloth is a deep golden yellow which is the color of some sunflowers. I topped it with a red, green and sunflower yellow striped runner.
The sunflower napkins are the only thing I could think of to go with the table I had in mind. I have used yellow wooden bead napkin rings.
The plate stack begins with an overly large barn red dinner plate (Max Studio Home) found at TJMaxx on sale for a dollar each. The next layer is a white Wedgwood Hedge Rose dinner plate which is topped with a bright yellow sunflower glass salad/dessert plate.
The simple highball glassware is a citrine Artland Iris, recently bought at Savers. They were $1.99 for 2, I got them on senior day, so with the 25% discount they came to $1.49 for a pair. Unfortunately, there were only 6 of them. I also found 4 iced tea stems for the same price...they are huge!
The fun 1970's flatware is Oxford Hall Perfectionware, just love them, they make me smile!
The centerpiece is an old Bennington Pottery pitcher filled with silk sunflowers...even the local florist didn't have any sunflowers today! The wooden candle stick is another Savers find. I think the little custard bowls that I am using for salt/pepper may also be Bennington Pottery. They were all found at Goodwill for a few dollars at most.
Thanks for taking the time out of your day to visit. I hope you will return the next time.
I will be joining Let's Dish/Cuisine Kathleen.
