A Bright Tablescape for Summer

 Bringing Positivity To The Table



Hi everyone!  As promised, I'm sharing the tablescape I created using the lovely dishes I purchased recently. Yellow is such a bright and cheerful color and that is the color that dominates in this tablescape. 


I enjoy the positive message that is written on the plates and the insides of the bowls. And the touches of green on the plates and the little bit of blue on the glasses adds just the right touch of additional color. 


And this is my "creative brainstorm" for a centerpiece. Blueberries in a clear, glass bowl with a colorful silk flower added in the middle. The unexpected color of the silk flower adds a bit of "oomph" to the yellows, in my opinion. 



This was a fun tablescape to put together and I was pleased to be able to use the yellow placemats that I already had on hand. What do you think? Are these colors that appeal to you? Have you been using your creativity lately? Be sure to let me know in the comments. I look forward to hearing from you!

Until Next Time,

Ready for The 4th of July

 Subtle Red, White and Blue


Hello friends! Hard to believe but we are almost to July 4th and so today I'm sharing some ideas for subtle hints of red, white and blue. The Mr. found this t-shirt for me the other day and brought it home and I really am enjoying wearing it! The flower containers with "America the Beautiful" written underneath gives a nod to the 4th of July but also allows me to continue wearing this shirt throughout the year. I needed a new t-shirt anyway and this one is a winner!


I wanted to do a pretty floral arrangement that would be great for the 4th but that would also be useable at any time. I was so lucky to find some really pretty floral bushes in softer shades of red, white and blue. I love the result of this arrangement and can use many of these flowers at other times of year, as well. 


This is how the foyer looks right now and I'm very pleased with the results! 

I hope that you and yours enjoy a wonderful 4th of July and a wonderful day if you live outside the USA. Take care and have a great week ahead!

Until Next Time,
Debbie
