FABBY: A Summer Tablescape

I love yellow and orange for summer colors, because I think they're so happy and bright! I specially used this bowls, where I like to make quiches and they go in the oven very well...anyway, they were my inspiration for this summer tablescape and were made at our past Ceramic Co., hand decorated in pretty roses and paired with blue and yellow.

 The dinner plate has a rim of orange and the salad plate is from my mother's French Limoges beautiful dishes she gifted me several years ago and they have the exact shade of blue as the bowls.
 The shell bowl with shell pedestal is for the hot sauce. At left my Mil's English yellow small also had the same shade of yellow as the bowls.
 I made my centerpiece with orange roses with some greenery, to continue with the tones of the tablescape.

 I love these orange glass napkin rings, which look just like orange hard candy and I feel like biting them!

 I like the yellow on this vintage, English yellow small serving platter.
 This plaid tablecloth is so bright and fun, it also has lots of oranges, and yellows, that I like. The orange napkins came with it.

 Some doggies from my collection, just to make my table fun.

The stems are Mexican hand blown and the amber glasses.. I don't remember! 

Thank you so much in advance sweet friends for all your wonderful and kind comments you always leave me and every time, you make my day!!

Thank you also lovely and gracious hostesses for having me at your fabulous and fun parties.

I ahve been reading over your blog and like the red transferware dishes. I collect them also as does many others.
I am always on the outlook for larger pieces
also like your silver serving pieces on your buffet with the red dishes

love the view from your pantry and yes ask the cable people once more to move those cables out of view

I'm just curious here - - - do all y'all tablescapers actually EAT on those gorgeous settings, or do you just do it for us to see????

My personal tablescaping generally consists of take-out on the couch.

A lovely summer table for sure, but I'm thinking your table cloth will also be great for fall. Don't you love when things are so versatile?
