A Happy Table!


The sun is finally out after several days of much needed rain, so this called for a bright, happy table in vibrant aqua and orange. Mother Nature let loose the past week or so...hope she does not forget we still have July and August, that will really need some of that moisture.



The beginnings of the table is this gorgeous table cloth in bright aqua and white that I paired with vibrant orange napkins held with an off white metal flower napkin holder.


The very simple plate stack begins with a white wood charger, orange dinner plate and white luncheon/salad plate.


The serving bowls are Bordallo Pinheiro.



I found 2 aqua pineapple candle "cages" at TJMaxx last week that ended up in my cart. I just couldn't resist them. I paired them with wood holders, that I painted orange, for the rest of the centerpiece as I didn't have time to go find orange flowers.

We've had lots and lots of rain and the sun came out this afternoon but didn't liven up the house like this fabulous tablescape.

Oh so beautiful and cheery. That would make anyone smile. I've been without a computer for quite a while now - and finally purchased a new laptop when the techs could not figure out how to fix the old laptop. The new one is lightening fast and I adore it. Now maybe I can spend some time catching up on reading blogs - seems I'm months behind.

I love the table setting - everything goes together so well and just sings summer!!

Love the pineapple candle cages! They would have gone into my cart too. Happy Mother's Day Marigene.

That really is a happy table, Marigene! It's almost Hawaiian in it's color scheme. I love it :)

I think this is one of my favorites of all of your tables. The colors are fantastic, and just scream summer! You know I am coveting those pineapple lanterns, but I also want those orange plates. Everything is just gorgeous!

Margene, This is a happy table. I love the tablecloth, Bordello bowls and great colors.

Great to hear from you. We are getting rain today with several tornado warnings this morning. Glad to see the sun is coming out now. Stormy weather is not fun.
Hope you have a great holiday weekend.
