Summer Flower Garden

One of Pat's favorite everyday dishware patterns is "Botanical Garden" from Pier 1. (Dishware Confession Time: Pat rotates dish patterns on a monthly basis. That way she can keep the table "fresh" and make it more interesting - it's especially easy to do with all of the dinnerware she and I own......) This week's table uses a colorful Fiesta(ware) "Sunflower" dinner plate and a "Botanical Garden" salad plate.

Flatware is the very popular "Napoleon Bee" by Wallace

The placemat is a large terracotta tile from our local building supply store that has been painted with a glossy sealer

Pat turned these adorable tiny watering cans into votive holders

I bought the "Garden Girl" years and years ago at Michael's. She is actually a bird feeder.

The flowers in the vase are the same colors as those on the accent/salad plate.

  1. How sweet is this tablescape. I love the yellow it makes everything so bright and happy. Thanks for sharing at Dishing it & Digging It link party. We love having you.

  2. I am loving the beautiful details on this one ladies! The butterfly napkin rings and those watering can candle holders are too adorable!

  3. Beautiful theme and you did an amazing job with it. Working with yellow has always been a challenge for me and I'm sure when I try again I'll refer back to this post.

  4. Once again you Ladies have me swooning! I love this summer flowery table: the yellow accents with those Botanical Garden salad plates are stunning. Bee flatware, vases of flowers in the same color palette as the plates: I LOVE it all!! Bravo!! Rosie @ The Magic Hutch
