Tablescapes, Bursting with Summer

Now that we are smack dab in the middle of August, I had to set one more table bursting with summer as a little summer send off…

It’s time to put the hot pink away

And let the autumn colors come out to play

Bursting summer

Enjoy the last peaches, bursting with sweetness

summer celebration

And oh those strawberries, they make us so merry

How we will miss this summer fruit bliss

But sizzling hot temps we surely won’t miss

celebrate summer

Savor the warmth of these last summer days

Embrace the bright colors, the heat and the haze

Eat some more berries, melon and peaches

Try to spend time on hot sandy beaches

These last summer days are like a treasure chest of old

a pirate's tale

But they’ll soon disappear faster than pirates steal gold

    I love your cheery summer table with your pattern play and bright colors Jenna! We’re sweltering here and I’ve been ready to kiss summer goodbye since July. Fall can’t come fast enough for me but it doesn’t usually arrive here until mid to late October…*sigh* Hope you’re enjoying some blue skies and blue water views this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    So fun and bright and cheerful!

    Oh, I can’t let go of summer yet. The kiddies go back to school tomorrow! No!!! We haven’t had enough summer yet.
    What pretty brights. Those bottles and the paint cans are really fun!

    What a pretty color combo…we still have several weeks of warm weather ahead…but I am anxious for cooler weather and the rich colors of autumn.

  5. Oh wow – I love the colours you put together especially the orange and yellow – so pretty with all the details and the commentary!! Just working our way towards summer here – thanks for the inspiration and thanks for visiting by my blog

    Your colorful table is very pretty Jenna! Gotta say, I’m kinda looking forward to gold, orange and brown:@)

    I am loving the bright and happy summer colors on your table. Your table is a lot of fun to see and read!! I did not know you were a poet…hehehe Just saying, your rhyming has timing, but for now it’s still summer, after fall the snow will be the bummer. Actually Fall is my favorite season. I love the warm days and cool nights of early Fall.

  8. Kim says:

    I love these fun colors any time of year! I enjoyed the rhyme, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I just love the beautiful colors. Makes me so very happy. You are very talented. Love the bottles, and again I love the paint buckets. I would enjoy those colors all year around. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Super cute and cheerful! You certainly have a knack for putting together well coordinated, pretty tablescapes! ~Rhonda

    Jenna, this is such a happy tablescape. Just looking at all the bright colors brings a smile to my face. And how cute those little paint buckets are. I love the way you set the color tone with those brightly painted flower bottles in the center of the table, and all of the colors of plates pick up the colors beautifully.

  12. Sandra Garth says:

    Bursting with summer is an understatement! I love this bright and beautiful table.

  13. CraftyHope says:

    Love the brightness of that first tablescape! Of course, the pirate one is too cute as well. And, I’ve got a soft spot for pirates! ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Barbara says:

    What pretty summer colors! You have reminded me to go out and pick some of our bougainvillea for the table. It would match your dark pinks perfectly. I like the way you used the fabric patterns. They looks great together. I am done with the heat and looking forward to hints of that bottom picture!

  15. Ann K says:

    Such a great summer table! Bright and cheerful, like the sun was filled with colorful confetti and it burst and fell on your table! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
