Summer Tablescape

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

With tropical storm/hurricane Isaac lurking around the South, I can't even begin to think about autumn.  So I decided that we needed a cheerful, summery breakfast room.

  1. Eak...I think my previous comment didn't go through. Computerts sigh...

    Anyways, I love your table setting. The blue tumblers are great where did you get those?

    I hope the storm dosn't hit us to hard.

    Have a good week.

  2. Lovely tablescape using your MacKenzie-Childs collection. The tablecloth is gorgeous……..
    Happy Wednesday…….


  3. This is such a pretty table...whimsical and cheerful! I'd love a set of MC dishes, the colors match everything. Your tablecloth is so charming!

    Stay safe and dry!


  4. I am sure I would be equally as envious of the food you are putting on those beautiful plates!

  5. Sunny and gorgeous! Wish I could spend some time outside today, we are having company tonight and I am babysitting a little one who just learned to crawl so I am having to be extra vigilant! Hope the hurricane spares you all!! Oh, and of ourse I love your turquoise theme for breakfast it looks cheery and fun especially on a stormy day!

  6. Ricki Jill,
    So summery. Very pretty. I guess we better enjoy while we can, fall is on the way.

  7. Love, love, love your dishes and linens. So cheerful. J

  8. You set a very pretty table, I love it. Aloha Raliegh

  9. Love, love, love this pretty table! That tablecloth is adorable. I'm crazy about the polka dotted ruffle. Your MacKenzie Childs dishes are very cheerful and I would love to wake up to them every morning. The salt & pepper shakers are too sweet!

    It is sunny here, but cool. A perfect late Summer day!

  10. Beautiful & very cheerful!


  11. OMg I love this it reminded me of something out a child's fantasy book sort of mad hatter style

  12. I love aqua and you have touches of it everywhere! The tablecloth is gorgeous! We've had a pretty day but it's clouding up right now! Take care...stay safe!

  13. Beautuful! I love turquoise.This is so lovely.

  14. It was lovely here today. I felt guilty after seeing all those poor people dealing with Isaac. I adore the blue hurricane. Great purchase there!

  15. Oh, I love all the blue! That's fabulous, as always. I'm concerned about Isaac, myself, and grateful that I don't have TV (which, in a tragedy, always ends up making me feel more anxious). I hope it doesn't move into where you are, and thank goodness you aren't in LA on vacation right now!

  16. Today was sunny and bright. i've been rearranging my studio....keeping busy.
    Hope you stay dry, and keep cheery as your set up!
    Thanks for sharing.

    Ciao Bella

  17. Oh, girl! You know I love this table! Where did you find that tablecloth? It is perfect!!
