Summer Blossoms Tablescape

Summery blooms filled
 my table today.

Each plate filled with movement
and life, one delicate and pink,
one gorgeously green.

Summer's blossoms are
so short lived.

But oh, the joy they bring.

Feathery and fragile

Grand and majestic

Intricate and delicate

Gathered from nature

Is summer so special because is
comes and goes?

Enjoy a few more

What beauty and awe is inspired 
by the color and
variety of flowers
that God has created.

Oh, the joy of summer,
the joy of flowers,
the joy of sunshine.

"The flower offered of itself
and eloquently spoke
Of Gods
In languages of rainbows
And secret silence..."

Phillip Pulfrey

WOW Jacqueline! The petals of the flowers or rather, the gorgeous plates MATCH so perfectly with the beauty of God's nature...your photography is just stunning. I tried taking pictures yesterday of my sweet home, but what silly images! I simply cannot get the lighting you have, that LIGHT background that makes the subject just POP with color. What a delicious table you set and I bet eating at your table is a delight of food and friends. Thank you dearest for coming to visit me, and I look forward to reading and seeing your post with the PURPLE header!!!! MUCH LOVE, Anita

Beautiful table! Loving those plates! I have never seen plates like that before. Way way way cool! Everything looks so beautiful. A gorgeous summer table. Love the centerpiece. Are those flowers from your garden? I bet your gardens are as beautiful too.

Gorgeous Jackie, I LOVE the color combo of pink and green, and your figural dishes are wonderful... I LOVE your perfume bottle there on the table to represent the fragrance of summer! It's a beauty too!!! Your flowers are PRICELESS, no matter how short lived they are! As an extensive gardener, by the time fall comes, I am happy to see the season end and a new one start!

Such a pretty summery table and I love the contrast of the dishes -- such beautiful dishes and so artfully arranged. We are so enjoying dining on the deck. Wish summer could last a lot longer. Did you get the huge wind today -- it pushed my pots off my deck table and broke one.

Forgot to mention how I admire the beautiful flowers :). Joni

So beautiful! The flowers are the crowning touch. Hooray for summer! :) Happy 4th, Jacqueline!

Donna said...

Do you ever do tables for a banquet? My husband and I are caterers and I am forever looking for ideas for the food table. Your table is absolutely beautiful....nothing is more fun than home goods....I remember one time I found some plates they matched something I already had...score! I went back to get them and they were gone! Still love that store...
