I threw it on the table and went to my dish storage cupboards.
What a pleasant surprise to quickly find these:
Turquoise, gold and cobalt -- all the colors in the fabric. The turquoise handled bowls are very old McCoy pottery pieces which I just love. The plates are just Wally World purchases. I always check Wally's markdown aisle and often pick up a new color of plates there. Usually I will just buy the dinner plates or the salad plates and mix and match. I find an eclectic table much more interesting than a matchy matchy table, don't you?
I went out to the deck and clipped a handful of flowers. I love summertime when I have everything I need for a centerpiece right out on the deck. I just needed to find a vase. I didn't have to look far.
I decided to use some capri dot glasses that were right in my cupboard for vases. These glasses are from the 1950's. I love these, too (I guess I just love a lot about this table).I like floating one pink star dahlia in these short glasses.
I think it turned out very summery looking. It will probably be my last summer table for the season.
