Tablescapes, Summer Fruit

The first local peaches finally hit the stores and I couldn’t wait to get my teeth hands on some!


Good ole Chilton County Alabama peaches


They are worthy of  very special treatment~

It’s a summer fruit explosion!

To make the napkins, just fold pink and green napkins and roll together to form your “watermelon”

Just cut some seed shapes out of something black, felt would be ideal but since there wasn’t any around I painted a piece of paper and used a glue dot to stick them on~just warn your diners to watch out for the seeds!

Ain’t life just a bowl of cherries!

    Jenna~ I have the blueberries, I feel the need to make a mad dash to the store for peaches for your Peachy Blueberry Pie for breakfast! Love all the fruit-filled and colorful fun at your table and your watermelon napkins! Wishing you a Happy (and dry 🙂 Independence Day!

    Love the fruit theme tablescape. The napkin with the look of a watermellon is great fun. Have a fun 4th. Pam

    Ah peaches, I love them and we are actually getting some pretty good ones here . I think they are from South Carolina and are much tastier than California peaches. Like you, I made a blueberry/peach cobbler this week. Topping is much like yours and I added crushed ginger cookies to it. Have a great day!

  6. Debbie says:

    I just love this one from one end to the other! I love the bright, happy colors, and I really love the watermelon napkin fold. I’m about to set my kitchen with its watermelon table, and I want to try that for the napkins this year. Usually, I just sort of shoosh them into the napkin ring.

    Very, very pretty!

  7. Wow, all the stunning colors and detail is just wonderful. and the watermelon napkins….genius! Good job 🙂

  10. Wow I’m blown away by the fun table setting! LOVE the colors, the whole thing makes me very happy and to top it all of the pie looks delectable! Thank You so much for sharing! I’m also excited to see all the fruit in season!…the melons where a little expensive here in my area but I will wait for them to come down in price and start using them in recipes! I came over to visit you from the Clean and Scentsible party,

    OK, let’s just get one thing straight. I love ALL your tablescapes. But, this one is probably my favorite! I love the colors, the fun napkins, the polka-dots, the ruffled place mats…I could go on and on. Oh, and the food…you probably need some help eating all that, so I’ll join you and give you a hand. 😉

  12. What a festive and colorful table. Perfect for the season. And that spread really made me hungry. That pie recipe is going on my to-make list. Pinning it. And I just adore those watermelon napkins. Pinning that idea, too.

    Thanks for linking up to Home{work} Wednesday. I hope you’ll link up this week, too.

  13. Just lovely, a rainbow sherbet delight! So clever,that watermelon napkin!

  16. Such a fun table, and the watermelon napkin fold, adorable!

    • I love how colorful and fruity this table is! The watermelon napkin is so cute and I love it in the peach colored glass. I didn’t know about the trick with the peaches. I’ll have to remember that. This recipe sounds good!

  17. Bev says:

    Love this bright, colorful table. But most of all, I LOVE Chilton County peaches…Score!

  18. Candy S says:

    I love your painted watermelon glasses and the polka dot plates for this perfectly marvelous “fruity” summer tablescape. We don’t have any peaches yet in Ohio…. I’m jealous. I want some peaches too, real peaches, grown in the USA peaches, Alabama peaches would be perfect.
