What a glorious day for a picnic...the first of the season. A simple tablesetting, using everyday china, old cotton tablecloths that have been washed so often they no longer need ironing, and the colors of the season, red, white and blue.
My garden is starting to bloom, mostly in blue. A few sprigs of Bridal Veil Spirea, some geranium blossoms and blue Centaurea make a last minute centerpiece. The lighthouse candle holders are a recent Christmas Tree Shop purchase.
It's more of a challenge when one prepares dinner as well as a tablescape. Tonight our lake neighbors are joining us for a locavore dinner of Coho salmon, fresh from the lake, warm pasta and tomato salad, fresh roasted asparagus from the farm down the road, garlic toast and rhubarb pie.
An incredible sunset tonight....
and finally, the blue hour!!!
Please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for some amazing tablescapes. Thank you for hosting this fun party, Tablescape Thursday.
