Hello sweet friends!
After coming back home from our vacation in Florida with our dear family, I wanted to celebrate summer in the USA for you, since it's official now, as we just enjoyed a hot and sunny summer in Orlando and Miami; whereas in my neck of the woods it's always spring, warmer and colder, but now it's warm, with a soft sun and in the late 70's.
I decided to set a very colorful table, using my orange dinner dishes with lovely summer plates in different fresh colors I bought from the trip. Next time I will use my new Read and Barton flatware, star plates for the 4th. of July and others.
Hope you like my summer tablescape for eight.
|I decided on a blue tablecloth, opposed to a yellow one I almost picked; to remind me of the blue sea in Florida, as here in the Andean mountains there are blue skies, but not the sea.|
|I like my orange dinner plates, as the color goes so well for every season; now I'm using them for a summer table setting.|
|The ceramic vase, holding the cyclamen was made and hand decorated at our former Ceramic Co.-Monte Turi.|
|I love these wicker and cane chargers that I bought a couple of months ago; they are also light and fresh perfect for a summer setting.|
|The salad plates came in four colors..in yellow like here, and notice they have a butterfly too.|
|And the last color is the orange. I love them all paired with the orange dinner plates. I bought eight of them, two in each color.|
|Here is a very summery decoration in the fruit plate.|
|Another with grapes and cherries.|
|Here is another fruit plate with peaches and grapes.|
|At left, another with apples and at your right with pears. There is others with bananas and babacos, a very local fruit, which I make pies with.|
|This is such a pretty green in the water glasses, again they'll be good come C'mas season too, I think, as here they're paired with my C'mas green wine glasses.|
|The centerpiece I fixed in the tray that goes well with the chargers and with my sweet cyclamen blooms I'm enjoying so much lately.|
|A small porcelain house with birds in the roof as a little tweak inside the cloche.|
|The little porcelain house has a removable roof, as it came with Candy many years ago and it was a present.|
|This is such a pretty large tablecloth I bought several years ago on sale for $12...I love the edge pattern with tulips.|
|This white ceramic bread basket with hand made flowers and gold in the edges, was also made back at our Ceramic Co.|
|A closer shot of the basket.|
|Ok, here you have it, my Summer tablescape for you. This shot is from inside the kitchen.|
Thank you so much sweet friends for stopping by and always making my day!
I appreciate the wonderful parties such lovely ladies host each week.
