A Colorful, Summer Table

As do many of my tables, this one was inspired by the runner. I found it recently and loved the colors, the burlap edge and how bright and cheery it is. So, I decided to build a table around it.
 I started with a green and white placemat, my white charger, yellow dinner plate and pink flowered salad. I LOVE that they all have interesting edges; that really makes a setting so special to me.
 I had this plate that I am using as a centerpiece. It sits in my fork and spoon plate holder. It appears darker than it is in this pic, as you will see.
 I decided to mix the flatware; the bamboo mimics the color of the burlap edge on the runner and the green blends too.
 I gathered a pale yellow napkin and a flowered napkin in this beautiful peony napkin ring.

 The rattan S and P bring another little touch of texture to the table.
 These candle rings are the perfect colors for the runner.

 We have had some bright, sunny days and this happy table makes me smile when I see it. Green goblets and yellow mugs complete the setting.

 The flowers on the plate are so similar to the ones on the runner. Serendipity:)

 We are enjoying this table for breakfast and lunch but have been eating dinner out on the deck. We want to take advantage of every day that we can eat outside. I have an outside table to share with you soon:)
Thanks for your visit. Leave me a comment to let me know you were here!
