Tablescapes, The Sun is So Bright, I’ve Gotta Wear Shades

We have had a crazy summer in Alabama, tons of rain and then bright sunshine,



We head to the porch when the weather is fine



And when the sun is out, it’s hot and bright,



Much to this pineapple’s delight!



Have you heard the song, “The Future’s So Bright, I’ve Gotta Wear Shades?”  It was a one hit wonder by Timbuk 3 back in the 80s {you can see the lyrics here}



Well, on days like today, you need those shades because of all the rays!



Watermelons, pineapples, sunny colors everywhere



And a Burst of Color pillow for lounging in the chair




Puffy pineapple napkins go along with the theme



and a fish mat upended to make a pineapple shape in green



Celebrate the season with fresh & luscious tropical fruit



There’s still a lot of summer left, so don’t put away that swimsuit!

    Love your cheery and tropical table Jenna! The pineapple with the shades cracked me up 🙂 See your wicked, spooky Halloween designs reminds me that Grandin Road Halloween Haven catalog came this weekend, making me cackle with glee 🙂

  2. Yes, I certainly do remember that song. 🙂 Cute setting, and love the rainbow. I guess crazy rain followed by rainbows and bright sunshine are better than hurricanes and destruction, right? We had some crazy cool weather for August this weekend in WV. One thing seems to be constant though – it’s always hot and humid in TX in summer, lol.Great stuff going up on Society6, Jenna.

  5. Sun a colorful and fun theme Jenna. Love your fish placemats turned into pineapples and your pineapple painted goblets. You always have great ideas to inspire us!

    Your table speaks of warm summer days at the shore, and I bet you are having some of those. Here we’ve had an incredibly cool summer and it’s almost gone!

  9. Bright colors! Yippee!!!

  10. Buahaha I love the pineapple! It’s pouring down rain here in Birmingham now….

  11. Jenna, what a fun table…the pineapple wearing its glasses is too funny! This has been an unusual summer weather-wise in NE AL! Rain is predicted all week!

    Jenna, so much cuteness here. Love the fun colors of this table. It makes me happy. You are so generous with your tutorials. Love the watermelon bowls. Pineapples are the latest rage this year. Thank you always sharing your lovely posts at DI&DI.

    I’m glad the rain is finally coming north! It’s raining here this week. What a relief – the crops need it badly. I always enjoy your beachy tables. Mr. Pineapple looks dashing in sunglasses! The Burst of Color pillow is perfect, too. 🙂

  14. This is such a fun table!

  15. Love the bright colors of your tablescape! I’ve recently done a couple with these colors too. I used pineapples in one but didn’t think of sunglasses which is super cute! I love your hand painted stemware – you are so talented! We’ve had on and off rain too and tonight we saw a rainbow but very pastel – not so vibrant like the double one you had!
