Orange Squash

We have had some really hot weather here lately – just as summer is winding down. Actually last Thursday’s weather was described as catastrophic!! And that was spot on…it was terrible. So I decided I needed a new refreshing table to cool things down (it worked, it’s actually raining today!!lol). I have been back at my sister’s gift shop doing a bit of re-arranging and displaying new giftware (my favourite job!!) so I thought I would share with you a lovely sunny orange tablescape I put together. As this was the display for the window I found it a bit hard controlling the light but I think you’ll get the idea.
Most of the orange tableware is melamine picnic ware but I have teamed it with some lovely white china bowls. I just love the fact that mixing things up like that is so acceptable these days – who would have thought of doing this about 5 years ago?? Not me for sure. I had to have a complete set of everything!
Aren’t these bird cages just fabulous…….

You did a great job on that display. It looks like a store that I would love to browse around in for a bit.

How sunny! Don't you love all the choices and combinations available these days? To think there was a time I thought only two china patterns was plenty! HA!
