We have gone from wet and cold to hot and humid all within a week...so much for spring, let's get right into summer heat!
I am not sure if the table runner was the inspiration or the hot weather! Oranges and golds are not just for fall, at least not in my house.
I found this table runner last year at Goodwill, had stuffed it in a drawer, forgetting about it. While looking for something else I came across it the other day and decided to do a summer table around it. Erin gave me some orange and white tulips for Mother's Day, plus I have tons of peach colored iris blossoming right now...so it was settled, the table this week is mimicking the summer weather...hot!
The charger plates are Better Homes and Gardens in an orange. The dinner plates are Ralph Lauren Boxwood, the salad plates, Ambiance Collection Tuscan Gold and the bouillon bowls are a new addition, as of today, John Maddock & Sons, in the Manchester pattern, that I found at our local 'antique' store. They were $12 for 8 pieces...I had to look them up, of course, eBay has the same ones, 6 for $74.99 plus $61.25 shipping...I would say that I got a fabulous deal.
The glassware is Indiana Glass Company's Diamondpoint in amber.
Flowers, the iris are from my yard.
Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog...I really appreciate it and the comments you leave.
I will be joining Between Naps On The Porch for Tablescape Thursday. Thank you for hosting each week, Susan.
