~~~Sunflowers for Summer~~~

As I told you yesterday, I have set a late summer table for us and sunflowers always come to mind. Also hydrangeas. They are turning their beautiful muted greens now and I get some everytime I go to the old house. I kept the table simple and may change the centerpiece, cause I am not TOTALLY happy with it but need to get to the grocery for some fresh flowers. I have some orange and some nectarine in my sherbert dish for breakfast, delicious and the right colors:):)
 A simple "stack" of plates, just a white embossed dinner plate,  my sunflower salad plate, and the brown stemmed sherbert glass.
 I put a few faux sunflowers, some leaves and some pine cones in my cloche. The cloche rests on a sunflwoer plate that is also on a glass cake pedestal.

 I wanted this table to be very organic so chose a burlap runner topped with a grapevine ball, some grassy stems and some pine cones.

 My sunflower S and P.
 One sunflower that has lasted for 2 weeks!!!!
 I love the design on the runner, simple leaves.

 And I chose these napkins because they seem to pick up the design of the edge of the runner.

 Once again, I am using the handle on the charger as a napkin ring.


 Golden glasses are ready for any beverage we choose.
 I have a bucket of hydrangeas that I just got yesterday so decided to add one to the table for a little more organics.

 I love how they all turn different colors:)
 Thanks so much for your visit. I would be so happy if you left me a comment to let me know you were here. XO, Pinky

  5. Your sunflower table is so welcoming, Pinky! I usually love the green hydrangea stage too, but this year I'm not getting them--they are going straight to dark and dry from blue. I think they are still recovering form last summer's hurricane followed by blizzard. Your dining area is wonderful too. Linda

  14. What cute sunflower plates. Can't help but smile just seeing them. That runner is so pretty, and you're right, the napkins look like they came with it as a set. Clever idea to use the handle on the charger as a napkin ring. Your table and chairs are so pretty too. laurie

  16. Oh Pinky, you are just so talented!
    The sunflowers paired with the burlap and rattan chargers work beautifully together. I found my sunflower salad plates and a roll of burlap in my storage bedroom. I can't wait to set up the table for Our Sunday Brunch tomorrow.
