Red and Green

Having fun just doing a mismatched colorful table.  Summer is fast coming to an end. Almanac said we are going to have a bitter cold winter so I am not anxious for the fast approaching fall as that is the prelude for winter brr. Red and green not only for Christmas. I wanted not a perfect tablescape but informal happy colorful one. My computer places pictures where it wants but I haven't figured out how to put them in order. It also loads very slow. We are still working on the house replacing old floors.Very depressing and a lot of hard work. I needed to do a happy table.

I was lucky this week garage saleing. Is that a word ?lol The place mats are reversible, the pattern of the napkins . There is only 2 place mats and  and 6 napkins. I wrapped the napkins with thick green and red yarn.

I used cherry red under plates , white soup dishes and yes that is ice cream ,butter almond.My acrylic tableware I use a lot as they take on the colors underneath.

Have to have cookies with ice cream. Tea for two on an elevated pedestal.Are you happy yet?
There is green in the pattern to match plate.

Ready for soup. How about pea soup to go with color scheme.Made an oops . Dish is crooked.

I got these 3 plates marked England for 50 cents each. I wanted to show them off.

More red and green. The plate under teapot is the other English plate. I think the strawberry will be for sugar.

The completed table setting.
The second place setting ,the plate has fruit  on it and the glass sits in a wicker holder.The red Glass is a candle holder. I will use battery candle. I used red chenille to wrap for color.

I didn't use table cloth, just my nice table top shows it off.

I used candle holders for flowers and if you know me I always like a bird on my table.

Up close look at candle holder with glass gems. I hope you are hungry by now. I will add some finger food for a lite lunch. I better eat the ice cream before it melts. There's a reason for my madness. yum my favorite          .

summer chat

Today I will be finishing putting things back in order. We will be putting my china closet desk in my living room. The floor is done and furniture moved back. Yesterday dusted all the walls and windows. H elped Ron put the futon together. Put up my curtains and wall decor. I even took time to put a quick tablescape in the breakfast room. I set for three. It would be nice to entertain you with a simple healthy lunch and we could chat . Summer is slipping away and soon will be fall. Yellow is such a happy color. I hope you like my lunch. My plates, lucky me, got six at a garage sale each with a different color rim and fruit.

I made the tablecloth to make it homey. The blue  plate and yellow placemats are my favorite colors. Acrylic tableware show the yellow and the napkins add a cottage feel.

Mismatched dishes but all have fruit on. Little cute ducks for salt and pepper shakers.
The juice glasses have blue checks and sun flowers. In our town we have a competition on who grows the tallest sunflower. Rules are they must be in front of the house and there is a 100.00 dolllar prize.

Stained glass butterfly.Day is fading so it is not showing off as well.

Up close so you can see the fruit on napkin holder and creamer.
Sunshine yellow silk flowers make me smile.

Mismatched cups. Do you prefer tea or coffee?

Napkin holder
Pretty blue butterflys just for fun.

Are you ready for lunch?

Wax candle flowers

It's a little chilly today so how about a thick hardy chicken veggie soup and wheat crackers?

Vanilla yogurt with pineapple and a drizzle of chocolate

Wheat cream cheese star sandwiches. Don't tell but there is cupcakes in the oven. Hope you enjoy.
