Things are moving at warp speed over here and I’m keeping up as best I can. With so many things on my plate literally and figuratively I didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity to participate in Cuisine Kathleen’s Farewell to Summer Table Challenge.
I am in no way shape or form ready for summer to end and I may have to sneak a transitional table or two into the mix before I fall headlong into autumn.
The cloth on this table is a fabric remnant that I’ve been holding on to for a couple of years. My original intention was to use for a Moroccan tablescape and it still may happen, one day. I think the hot pink and rust colors are a perfect end of summer palette and for some reason these colors remind me of August. Weird I l know.
Leave it to my favorite grocery store on the planet, Meijer’s for another awesome bargain. The hot pink straw placemats were on clearance for .69 each. I don’t get a dime from Meijer’s for giving them all the shout outs that I do, I just love the store. I shop for groceries there every week and I’m there at least three hours. Sounds like I need a little more social activity doesn’t it?
As I was putting the table together it dawned on me that I have developed a pattern or style if you will of how I put my tablescapes together. I guess I’m thinking that my tables are becoming a bit predictable. Predictability is a good thing in many areas. Not sure if it’s a good thing in this instance or not. At any rate, I hope you like it. It has brightened up my dining room quite a bit. After checking out the Farmers Almanac for this winter I may have to be unpredictable and pull out some hot colors to make the coming winter tolerable. Take Care!!
