Pitchers and Sunflowers, Oh My!

I love the brightness of Sunflowers...I don't think you can look at something with such a rich sunshiney color and not be moved to smile.  As homemakers, it is so important to surround ourselves with beauty and with things we love.  This provides a peaceful background and helps create balance in our busy lives. 

I love ceramic pitchers in all colors, shapes and sizes but I especially love the simple pleasure of a white pitcher. I have filled my pitcher with gorgeous sunflowers and added a bright bumble bee canister. 

I used a farmhouse theme for my tabletop, with the large white ironstone pitcher, farm scene plates and a milk bottle, just in case the cow needs to be milked as she grazes on the table for the next week or so. 

I'm joining the wonderful Ms Marty at a Stroll Through Life for her weekly Tabletop Tuesday party.  Please visit Marty to view her beautiful site as well as enjoy some great tabletop vignettes from her party participants. 

All The Best,
Pin It!

I love the simplicity of white in the summer, too, Anita. I think that, especially when flowers are involved, it allows those colors to stand out and be center stage for the short time we have them.

That is so beautiful. I love the sunflowers in my home also.
Have a great day.
