Happy Independence Day to all my American friends and Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian friends! This is my first time to write a post that actually includes the word tablescape because on most days my tablescapes consist of salt and pepper shakers with a splash of Louisiana hot sauce and a dash of clutter. I have been a bit intimidated by all the tablescape talent out there but I got a compliment this weekend on my attempt at a tablescape and it unleashed the confident beast in me.
The acacia wood tray was a $1 garage sale find earlier this summer and the inspiration for the tablescape. The wasp trap was purchased at a gas station in Oxford, MS. I bought it for the color and the shape, but may actually use it for its intended purpose because I see wasps flying around outside my sun porch. My sweet sister gave me the floral painted terra cotta pot with a plant cutting in it.
This table was a dumpster find and has proved to be a multi-tasker. In addition to being a source of tablescape possibilities, it serves as a tomato ripening station. I have started a collection of bottles which I hope will one day adorn a bottle tree. If you click on the picture and look closely, you can see a cardinal on the bird feeder in the background. He is probably eyeing my tomatoes.
I like how the arbor in the background frames the bottles in this shot.
Don’t you just love the colorful reflections?
The lime green bowl was a gift from my honey. When the sun hits it, a myriad of patterns and colors appear on the ceiling.
It is difficult to catch the true beauty of the reflection with my point and shoot but these two photos may give you an idea of the spectacular light show on my ceiling on sunny days.
Wishing you colorful reflections,
I will be partying with these fabulous women and encourage you to pay them a visit.
