Cool Blue

We are still experiencing terrible hot weather here – thankfully we have air conditioning and a pool and the beach nearby so it is bearable!! The farmhouse is a little different….no beach, no pool and air conditioning but not right through the house so our trip home to check on things and do a few chores was a little hard to take! I did manage to finish off some office work and get rid of an amazing number of spider webs which have just appeared in two weeks! We are back at the beachhouse now so I thought I would share this simple ‘hot day’ table I set the other day. I thought the simple blue and white table with no cloth and simple centrepiece was the ‘coolest’ thing I could do.
Mr FH and I are here at the farmhouse by ourselves this’s so quiet without our families all here with us but I must admit I will be looking forward to them coming to visit again soon.
I bought these placemats off ebay ages ago. They are just so not me!!!  I think they were the first things I ever won and I was so excited but when they arrived I nearly died! They have been stashed away in the cupboard ever since!! The seem to be just right for a table to make us feel cool.

Great table layout. I think the blue does make things seem cooler. Spiders seem to have a habit of moving in!!

Oh gosh, the flatware is just fabulous!!! That alone would make me feel cooler. But the blue does the trick. Looking forward to a fun 2013 at your tables.. xo marlis

You may not like the placemats, but they are perfect with the dishes you have chosen for a cool look...I saw something today about how hot it has been and going to be in Australia this year, they had to add more colors to the temperature chart. Hope you will be able to find lots of relief from the heat, Susie.

Love the blue and white combo, it is nice to do a new color after Christmas. Thanks for sharing at the Cabin!

After the overly decorated homes of the holidays, your table is so refreshing! I love the blue and white combination and those white tulips are a wonderful addition. When I saw your chairs, it brought a pang of nostalgia. We inherited a set of chairs like yours from my mother-in-law and we used them for over 20 years until, finally, this past year we had to replace them. Love your blue glasses!
