Camping, Boating, a Picnic, whatever you do for fun in the summer! Some may pick an indoor event as it is so hot in parts of the country!
Tonight's table was inspired by this basket I have had for many years.
Black background with strawberries painted on both sides.
I filled it with washed berries, and put them on a toothpick and stuck them into the oasis filled basket.
I'll serve a little fruit dip and we can eat them as part of the dessert!
TIP: Wash your berries with one part white vinegar to 9 parts water. They will last lots longer without getting fuzzy, the vinegar retards the mold from growing.
I keep a spray bottle with a vinegar/water mixture in the kitchen. I use it for wiping down the counters, as well as the frig, floors, etc. So I spray and rinse all the fruit when I bring it home.
I started with a black cloth , square charger that I got at Pfaltzgraf .com during their Dollar Day sales for 2.00
The red plate is also from there, $1.00
Square white plate CTS, square bowl Pfaltzgraf.
I surrounded it with a strawberry wreath that was $1.00
The strawberry napkins are from PB Outlet on sale, about 1.00 each.
TIP: Pachysandra makes wonderful filler for centerpieces. I tucked some white portulaca and diamond frost, and a few strawberry leaves in with the greens.
Green flatware from World Market. My friend Susan at Savoring Time in the Kitchen sent me settings for 4 and I added to it so I have 12.
Little strawberry candles from the .99 store .
Green chrysanthemum glasses by Anthropologie via the .99 store were, yes, .99!
Bubble glass stems filled with strawberry iced tea from Pfaltzgraff Clearance Outlets years ago.
A little white bucket holds a big fat strawberry as a take home.
It opens up to this handy dandy shopping bag!
The wrinkles will come out when you fill it with goodies!
It was .80 at Cmas Tree Shops. Very handy to keep in your purse
. Out here the supermarkets charge you .05 for a paper bag as plastic is banned. Sounds like good thing, right?
BUT, we pay by the bag to get rid of our garbage.
Almost 3.00 a bag, and they are plastic! Ironic!
Pull up a chair and pop a plump berry into your mouth !
You can see my strawberry table from 2 years ago HERE.
Looking forward to seeing your entries this week!
Marigene from In the Middle of Nowhere had the most visits last week, 57!
Those polka dot napkins were very eye catching! Lots of other entries were close to that, so THANK YOU for visiting so many entries. I am so glad this isn't a link and run party! :)
BLOG NAME FIRST, thanks! There is no limit on the description, so you can add the title after that.
One link, no word id or selling things permitted.
Please leave a comment here, and a link back to this party is required. Please visit as many as you can!
Of course, it is Let's Dish, so only table related things are invited.
It doesn't have to be a table, last week Christine wowed us with an amazing amount of table goodies purchased at an estate sale. It was unbelievable!
I'll be back tomorrow for Foodie Friday. This was long so I decided to split it.
I am joining Yvonne at Stone Gable for Tips, T and T
