Welcome to the 403rd Tablescape Thursday!
Today I made a visit to Whole Foods and just outside their front door I saw these: pots of beautiful sunflowers. Each plant had 2-3 flowers already open and was covered in buds, so there should be plenty more flowers on the horizon. I couldn’t resist creating this week’s table around these happy flowers.
I haven’t used my sunflower plates in a table setting in quite a while. This was the perfect chance.
You may see some cedar legs sticking up in the background of some of the photos. I started assembling my new potting bench a couple of days ago, but then realized it made more sense to seal each piece with marine varnish before putting it together, instead of waiting and doing it afterwards. I’ve ordered the varnish and it’s supposed to arrive tomorrow. That will be a good project for this weekend.
Pulled out my fave sunflower napkins.
Unfortunately, I only have four of these cute napkins. They were a find in Tuesday Morning several years ago. Butterfly napkin rings are from Pier 1. The green, bamboo flatware pulls out the green in the napkins.
I’ve used the sunflower plates and napkins in other table settings over the years, including this one: Sunflower Table for Two
Birdie wine glasses fit right in with this nature themed table. They are my favorite wine glasses for summer dining on the porch. I found those in Old Time Pottery many years ago. I think the green glasses are from Pier 1, many years ago.
So rare to see sunflowers for sale in the store, still with their leaves. I wish more stores would sell them this way instead of with the leaves all stripped off. I think I’ll plant this one in the backyard once it has finished blooming. Hope it will come back next year.
A sunshine filled table setting for warm summer days. I love, love, love this time of year!
Happy Springtime to you!

Please, don’t add your post name/blog name ALL IN CAPS…it tends to create big spaces between the rows of links.
