Aqua, Gold and Cobalt Blue Summer Table

I brought out this fabric to test it for a table runner binding. It did not work for the binding. When I went to put it away, I admired the print and wondered if I had any dishes that would work with it.

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.

This is a table I did at the end of last Summer.

Here's one I did a week ago. It's just a simple spring unch in my tulip garden.

I really like the table cloth and those dishes. The soup bouwl are bowls grandmother had only in the milk white.
I like the pink an yellow outside.
So I see you are a gardener.
