Aqua Love!

To celebrate the fact that our long hot summer is coming to an end I set a bright table with pretty picnic ware. Actually, I found the melamine plates and bowls in my pantry (long forgotten!!) and thought if I didn’t use them now I would have to wait until next spring. I also have the salad plates but for todays table I used some fun striped plates I had. Just love the colours.  Actually I also found a brand new pair of shoes in that beautiful aqua (not in my pantry!!) that I still hadn’t worn so I wore them on the weekend too before it gets too cold!   Sorry I just got sidetracked!!  The table was simple and bright. Gorgeous woven white chargers and lots of fun elements completed the table. I even had the matching napkins – yes, these were all purchased at the grocery store!!  Haha!  Just lovely for a bit of summer fun.
I am on two weeks school break starting this week – I can’t wait. Hopefully I’ll have time to catch up with my house work. Living between two houses and spending half the time in each gets a little hard to keep up with.

Your dishes are so wonderful for the summer time! The bright colors of the flowers and the stripes in the salads are a wonderful combination. I love the matching napkins and it is so great to find these beautiful pieces at the grocery store. Glad you rescued them from your cabinet for the table is so pretty. Hope you enjoy wearing you new shoes on your vacation.

HUH????? I started reading your blog and it said the "end of summer". Hmmmm... maybe it's a recycled post. Nope, that's a current date. Then, the fog cleared in my brain and I realized you must be from down under. Sure enough.... you are! LOL So nice to meet you!! Those aquas are truly summery as well as your accent colors. Good on you (see? I'm getting in the groove now!) for making sure you get one last hurrah before the end of season! Thanks for sharing!

You have beautiful picnic-ware! Love the bright happy patterns - beautifully done - I am not very fond of hot summers - but would love to sit to a picnic in the shade with these dishes on hand - I do appreciate you sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
