Hello Ladies! Hard to believe, but it is almost Labor Day! Here in Southampton, that marks the end of the “season” for Summer people. For those of us who live here year round, it marks the beginning of one of the most beautiful months of summer, September! Blue skies, warm water, and the tourists have gone home. Back to normal for us! Peaceful and beautiful!
I decided to go Nautical and Patriotic for the challenge. I will still be celebrating summer, till at least the 21st, when the season changes. I almost did this bright colored scape…
That will be for another post.
The cloth is old and big enough for 2 tables, so I tied off the ends.
A white table cover from Linens N Things.com hides the folding table legs.
Cute little flip fop nautical salt and pepper shakers.
Red placemats serve as a charger. White dinner plate via Horchow, red salad from CTS and blue speckled bowls , a gift from Alma. The great thing about the bowls is you can put them in the oven and get them good and hot , then pour in your soup. Hot to the very last drop!
The blue flatware is by Cambridge, from CTS. Rounded soup spoon for our chowder from the Restaurant Supply store. Navy cotton napkins, 20x20 were .50 from the fabric outlet.
Two small centerpieces, filled with roses, red geraniums and diamond frost from the garden with a flag tucked in.
They are flag patterned toothbrush holders I got a few years ago from CTS for .19 each. I got them for Alma too, and she mentioned they leaked when you fill them with water. I poured some polyurethane in and swirled it around, and let it dry. Problem solved!
The blue stems are from Dansk.
Nautical bowls from Christmas Tree Shop. (CTS)
See our 2 little refrigerators? Very convenient to keep the summer drinks cold, and ingredients for the cook outs. Saves trips to the kitchen!
I know I am a little late getting this posted, but I had to tear myself away from this!
It’s Summer, ok. No thoughts of leaves or pumpkins or any of that F_ _ L stuff here!
Please link only a NEW table that meets the challenge, Farewell to Summer. NO FALL! Please only link if you promise to visit at least 5 other entrants and leave a comment. No word verification blogs permitted. Blog name first. THANKS!
