Welcome to the 44th Tablescape Thursday!
Summer is here and I’m thinking sunshine and blue skies…
The sunflowers remind me of sunshine, while the blue and white gingham napkins have me dreaming of blue skies with white fluffy clouds.
It’s hotter than blazes here in Hotlanta.! So let’s cool things down with lots of crisp, cool white…white chargers, white china, white candles, white hobnail candle sticks and white wicker.
And how about a light, refreshing dessert…
Tonight we’re having blueberries, raspberries, and mandarin oranges…topped off with whipped cream, toasted almonds and a chocolate Oreo wafer stix.
The Target birdies are making their first appearance since their long ago holiday.
Martini glasses from Dollar Tree make great dessert dishes…
Napkins are from Old Time Pottery…$6 for six! They are tucked down inside goblets from the Dollar Tree. Crystal tea glasses are Araglin by Waterford. Chargers are from Neiman Marcus and china is Gibson from Big Lots.
Flatware is Napoleon Bee from Neiman Marcus…Horchow has it, too.
I love this cute blossom candle snuffer from Colonial Candle! You never want to blow out your candles because of the risk of blowing the wax right onto your tablecloth or surrounding china. I did that a few months ago with red candles I used in a Valentines tablescape…I’m still trying to figure out how to get the red wax out of a white crocheted doily. Does anyone know a good way? Would love to hear your suggestions.
I love walking around snuffing out all the candles at the end of the evening…I feel a bit like a fairy Godmother with her magical wand.
Hope you are celebrating summer with sunshine tablescapes!
