Tablescapes, Tropical Summer

After I painted a placemat to match new summer plates last week

I set a quick table in the foyer to try it out

It was time to replace Spring in the dinning room

with Summer…

My painted placemat is the star of the show!

I found beautiful summer bright flowers at Fresh Market,

including some giant hot pink peonies

I was in flower heaven!

A Parchment Check MacKenzie-Childs vase and candlesticks

matched the blue on the plates and painted place mat

I created a runner alternating unpainted straw placemats

with fun flower trivets and placed the vase of flowers in the center

on the painted mat

Yellow and orange salad plates are topped with little faux blooms

These bright happy colors bring Summer right into the room!

Lots of bold colors do happiness bring

A room full of flowers and color does make my heart sing!

“I wonder what it would be like to live in a world where it was always June.”

–Lucy Maud Montgomery

Happy Summer!

    Your spring dining room looked lovely and your new summer setting is amazing too. The bright colors are perfect for a summer look. Love those peonies! The bouquet with the MC’s vase, one of my favorite pieces and the painted placemat is a lovely centerpiece. Have a wonderful week of the Fourth!
