Today I wanted to do a cheery table using bright happy sunflowers but not in the usual blues and yellows.
|I have these beautiful bright green and yellow dishes that were my inspiration with a tiny red lady bug in the center of the sunflowers|
they have so many colors to use I picked out the black check and mimicked that with black checked piece of material over yellow checked with bright lime green placemats and napkins
there are tiny ladybugs throughout and at an antique store a woman was passing these little gems out she said they were good luck pieces I knew they would match these dishes
|I wish she had given me a handful instead of just one|
some sunflowers, sorry didn't get a chance to get to Trader Joes for some real ones.
|I added my trademark beads in multi colors to match,yellows,lime green and black.|
Here is a book I have all about sunflowers and the magic of these beauties how they turn their faces to the sun.
|I love the black green and yellows together|
long view of the table
|Yes I ironed the black fabric but my over head fan was blowing. |
I found sunflower cupcake liners I thought were so cute and fit right in .I didn't use a cake stand this time but raised up the candles instead on pedestals.
glasses ready for umm maybe some ice cold Lime-ade??
|Here are both books on display one in the traditional blue and yellow|
|great contrast of colors don't you think?|
