Sunday Supper Tablescape


I started this table with a sunflower laden table topper. I try to use it a few times a year. I thought the sunny little faces would be good as we are looking at a couple weeks of rainy weather starting later today. The temperatures have dropped about 15° degrees from last week, too. I was just getting used to the warm weather and boom, it dropped down into the low 40°s.


The tablesettings began with brown woven chargers, then two different aqua plates. Each plate was topped with a yellow napkin held with brown beaded napkin rings. The flatware is also wood handled. I have used aqua glassware for the lemonade.







Our Sunday supper will be pulled pork sliders, potato salad, coleslaw and lemonade. Dessert will be strawberry rhubarb crisp with vanilla ice cream.


A while back I was one of the recipients of a free pair of eyeglasses that A Joyful Cottage was promoting for Firmoo. I liked them so well, I ordered 2 more pairs! Thanks, Nancy, for drawing my name. I do like bright glasses!




Thanks for visiting today, hope you will return next time. 

I will join Digging It & Dishing It/Rustic & Refined

Such a pretty color combo! Cold here too, I haven't planted yet though! Dinner sounds good, almost sounds like SPARE RIBS! :)
We just had salad and grilled chicken. DH is sick of it, but to bad. I am baking ISB for the Memorial Mass for my cousin. 100 lbs of sugar, but I am running short on flour, go figure! I think I only need to make 25, thye are about 1 lb 3 oz each
Enjoy the week!
Have to look up those glasses. I will never need glasses to read doc told me Fri., but distance. Can you get them with prescription lenses?

Oh the table is wonderful - and the flowers in the little bottles match the tablecloth perfectly. Now if I just knew what time dinner was I'd be right over - it all sounds delicious.

You know I love your table with my favorite color of Aqua. The tablecloth reminds me of an April Cornell one. Live the aqua plates, so perfect with the tablecloth and glasses.

This has certainly been a strange spring but your pretty table warms up your dining table nicely.
