A Little Red and White with a Punch of Yellow
This week the table is red and white...extremely simple as it is soooo hot and humid here on the plains it just saps any energy one might have. Right now it is 100°, cloudy, thundering, and ready to storm...hope that it cools it off a little.
I started with a white damask tablecloth and solid red napkins, added red dinner plates (Waechtersbach), which are being used as charger plates. From there I used my white Wedgwood Hedge Rose plates layered with red and white checked salad plates.
The red stemware is from a CSN giveaway last year...thank you again, Linda of A la Carte! The wine glass is one I have had for quite some time...Goodwill if I remember correctly!
The red is really bright and cheery against the starkness of the white.
I tried a couple different centerpiece dishes and ended up liking the footed one best. The garden only has a few scraggly blossoms right now due to the heat and lack of moisture, so I have used lemons as the centerpiece.
The rim shot!

I will be linked up with Between Naps On The Porch, once again for Tablescape Thursday. Please take the time to drool over the other tables that can also be seen there. Thank you for hosting this fun meme, Susan.
I am also going to join Sue for Rednesday.
Thank you for visiting my blog, hope you will return next week.
