Ants are Welcome at this Table

I did not think I was going to get the heavy metal ants I ordered last month. Two weeks ago I got an email that said they were out of stock for the season. Then last week I got an email that said they had shipped!

We are grilling steak tonight. I thought I'd set a quick picnic-type table. I went out to my gardens and picked some flowers

and put them inside a picnic basket. Then scattered the ants around.

Dessert was homemade chocolate chip cookies--it looks like the ants like them, too.

Here is the complete table setting for just the two of us.

I can't wait to use these ants for a summer dinner party. I think they will be quite the conversation starters!

Denim, Dasies & Daylilies Tablescape

For this quick table, I went out to my garden and cut down some daisies and daylilies. Then I took this blue jean handbag, that I made last spring

and inserted two heavy glass containers full of water.

I plopped the flowers in, did a little tweaking and ended up with this bouquet:

I used my blue onion salad plates to incorporate a little pattern and my butterscotch glass chargers because they matched the eye of that little yellow daylily in the front.

I used my white-flowered red wine glasses, blue-stemmed water glasses and chunky white candles.

For very little fuss, I had a unique summer dinner table.
