SUNFLOWER SEASON

As we transition from the heat of summer and go into the coolness of Fall, we can enjoy the beauty of the Sunflower.
 Sunflowers are everywhere along the roadways and in the fields for us to see them.
 The loveliness of the centerpiece has Sunflowers, cattails, wheat, and autumn leaves.
 Little Master scarecrow happly shares his fun with tiny crow and the sunflower bird.
 Little Miss scarecrow has sunflowers on her dress and in her hand, she shares her time with the cawing crow. Along with a bird perched on another sunflower.
 The centerpiece of flowers is in a verda colored metal pot, which not only holds the flowers but also the five creamy yellow candles.
 The sunflower bowl that accompanies the tableware by Maxcera.
 The lovely place setting called "Flowing Sunflowers".
 The flowers follow the sun from dawn till dusk.
 Holding the gold and white checked napkins is a tiny yellow beaded napkin ring. A country touch is brought by the yellow flatware.
 The elegant crystal is in balance with a ceramic mug.
 The crystal is Ralph Lauren's "Herringbone".
 While I was going through my yellow linens, I discovers this set of perfect placemats to go with the dinnerware.
This was a fun and enjoyable tablescape to design.

Catch A Sea Breeze

Lets walk along the beach, gather sea shells, and have a ride on a sail boat. 
Other pleasures along the shore are birds skittering about the sand and grasses blowing in the breeze.
The place setting is ready for a seafood feast. 
The blue and silver dinnerware has a ocean motif.
The swaying grasses along the shore is mimicked by the blue and white reeded placemats. 
Reed and Barton sea shell pattern echoes the shells on the dinnerware.
More blue and silver on the napkin and rings add a touch of elegance.
A wonderful fish in water on the pressed glass goblet creates more drama.
The adorable fish teapot will be used for hot tea along with dessert.
Birds along the shore are characterized by the blue glittered seagull.
Lets go sailing in our sailboat along the center of the table.
A purple shell is perched on the life guard seat.
The blue glass lantern lights the charming beach chairs.
Hope you have enjoyed our time at the beach.

 U.S. flag napkins add interest to each of the different colored flatware handles.
A special toast to the soldiers, sailors, airmen, police and firefighters who protect our independence.
