Sunflowers!



 I think maybe you will be able to figure out what the inspiration for the table is by the first photo...a sunflower tablecloth, big and bright! It makes me smile. I was recently at Savers and this tablecloth jumped out at me...at first I thought someone had put a shower curtain on the wrong rack and then realized it definitely was a tablecloth and that tablecloth was going home with me. With a 30% discount the tablecloth set me back $4.20.



I debated using green and yellow dishes, but figured they would get lost so I pulled out vibrant Waechtersbach red ones. I used an unmarked white plate for contrast. The flatware is Rogers 1847 Plain.


The glassware is ruby Cris d' Arques Antique and green stemmed Luminarc.


The solid red cotton napkin is held with a sunflower napkin ring of painted wood.


The centerpiece kind of fades into the tablecloth...it is the only 2 yellow flowers I have blossoming right now...achillea/yarrow and coreopsis/tickseed.




The rim shot.




Thanks for taking the time to visit today, do come back next time.

Beautiful as always! I love that tablecloth and laughed at your shower curtain comment. I have actually found a few beautiful shower curtains at thrift stores and cut off and hemmed the top and they make excellent patio tablecloths :)

Week after week, a tablescape that makes me scramble to find the perfect words to say how fabulous it is. Could I have the round placemats and scalloped plates? bbb

That table just makes me smile, Marigene! You find the best deals at Savers. I think you're right about the red dishes as they add a pop of color. The napkin rings are so cute, too, and especially on the red.

Your centerpiece is pretty and such cute napkin rings for your sunflower theme. The red was a perfect idea for contrast.

You did great working with your newly acquired sunflower tablecloth (good bargain). The red was a good choice to use with the bright flowers. I have never worked with sunflowers so am glad to see your choices. Good job.

$4.20? What a find! Using the earthy red with the sunflowers is such an unexpected and great pop of color on that sea of sunflowers! Your table really makes for smiles Marigene!

Love sunflowers and your cloth is so cheerfully filled with them. Makes a beautiful tablescape. I'm trying to get back in the swing and visit my old friends. Nice to see you.

I would have grabbed that tablecloth, too! What a happy tablescape it makes! (I wish spell check would get with the program & recognize that 'tablescape' is a real word!) LOL

Smart idea to go with the red plates...you know I ♥♥♥ red, too.
