Fabulous Summer Colours

This week I have bought some new dinnerware. Something bright and colourful for summer!!

I set my table with a dark blue cloth to really show up the bright colours.

Very simple summer chargers were used first then a small salad plate under the pasta bowl.

With each set of four pasta bowls I received a gorgeous striped salad bowl or pasta serving bowl. The candle holders were my daughters and I found them in a box of 'goodies' she had left behind from her flatting days in the city.

Pretty blue flatware toned in beautifully with all the colours

These pasta sets were on special for $10.00 - four bowls and a serving bowl for $10.00? - Can't get better than that! So as you can imagine, I can't resist a bargain so I bought 2. But really 8 bowls will be handy -do I sound convincing?????

I've had this gorgeous Mexican looking plate for ages but it fitted in perfectly.

I can' t wait to use this gorgeous salad bowl for summer....

What great china Suzy!
I love the colors and a great deal too!
It's hard to believe it's summer somewhere right now. We are starting to get the cold winds of late Autumn blowing in.

I love all the colors! As the weather grows colder and we tend to lean toward darker colors here in the Midwestern states of the USA, it is really refreshing to see something so light and airy and colorful!
