|Happy summer to all of you. I hope your summer is going well and the heat is not to unbearable for everyone|
the temperatures in Seattle have been off the charts sky high into the high ninety's I don't mind so much it's just there is no air conditioning in any apts.HUH?
|I bought these cute plates and have been waiting to create just the right tablescape. problem is I have no table to build upon.So I went thru the yard and got real creative.I used two saw horses and a sheet of plywood and kinda built my own|
I made the napkins to look like the coral in the plates and for chargers used card stock paper.remember everything I own is in storage so creativity is the Mother of invention here.
|These amazing plants that grow in abundance here looked perfect to use as sea life against my lanterns and hemp of rope with just a touch of soft blue hydrangeas|
|glasses of blue glass with tiny fishes on them perfect for sipping a cold drink to help cool us down.|
I can't wait to sit out here and have a wonderful meal under the stars.with daylight staying with us till almost ten in the evening dusk comes closer to bed time than early evening. Quite a change for me than the earliness of San Diego nights.
|I layered my plates with cardstock sheets,solid red orange plates,these shell plates then the coral sealife plates|
as we sit under this weeping willow tree the yard is filled with all kinds of wildlife.we share our evenings with a family of raccoons,butterflies,hummingbirds and many species of colorful birds .
|it truly is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the summer evenings|
|my table is set and ready for us to sit and enjoy now what can I serve to compliment this serene place? maybe just a chilled chef salad would work nothing fancy and some sweet tea with fresh fruit cups for dessert.Yum sounds good to me!|
|the blues are such a nice color against the backdrop of all the greens|
