Welcome to the 105th Tablescape Thursday!
It’s still very much summer here in the sunny south…and I’m loving every moment of it. I’m one of those strange people who loves hot weather. Cold weather…not so much.
Since I was really hoping you might be stopping by this evening, I made us some yummy lemonade and cookies. What’s that? You’re wondering about that tripod out on the deck? Shhhh, that’s my top secret, special ops, hummingbird spy station. Either that, or I’m spying on the neighbors.
A few months ago I was shopping in HomeGoods, one of my favorite stores in this big, ole world…and I came across this awesome beverage server. It was super reasonably priced, as most things are at HG.
Wouldn’t it look great with the bottom portion filled with shells for a beach party?
You could use tangerines if you were serving an orange flavored drink.
I think the possibilities for the bottom section are endless. It would be lovely just filled with summer flowers….or how about mini pumpkins for the fall.
Oh, oh, oh…great idea just hit! How about ornaments at Christmas time…with a yummy cranberry punch above! I think I’ll have fun trying new things in the bottom.
Soooo, come on over here and grab a lemon-covered glass…
And fill it up with some icey cold lemonade. I’ve saved you a spot right over here on the swing.
Don’t forget the cookies…ya gotta keep your strength up for porch swinging, ya know.
2-Gallon Beverage Server: By Artland, The Simplicity Collection…found at HomeGoods
Lemon Glasses: Dollar Tree, last summer, I think
