Tablescape Thursday - Summer Table

For my very first Tablescape Thursday post, I have a Summer table to present. Thanks to Susan for hosting and please visit her site to see all the beautiful tablescapes.

Come in and have a seat. It's hot out there, so I've fixed you a sweet tea with lots and lots of ice, just like we like it. We are having pasta salad and fruit for lunch, just before we run out for a day of fun. I've set a bright, sunny table for us today so that we can embrace summer inside, while leaving the heat and humidity outside.

Enjoy your tea while I finish the food.

Chargers are wicker and are from Home Goods. Plates are Bella white stoneware and were purchased at Profitts years ago. Salad plates are from Marshalls and cool the setting in a light robins egg blue color.

Napkins are white damask and tied with a simple green gingham ribbon for a touch of elegance and whimsy

Centerpiece is a white soup tureen filled with ivy, grapes and yellow roses. Lemons are scattered about the table to add an additional punch of sunshine.

All the best,

Pin It!

Lovely tablescape! I like how you tied the napkins and placed them on the plate. The white pitcher is very pretty. That tea looks so refreshing!
