My love for yellow continues...
Well summer is almost here, which means I go into hibernation, I move into the coolest part of the house for most of the day, I am definitely a veranda girl and I have always been the one under an umbrella when I'm near water. The colours surrounding me at the moment are still very fresh and green and the light is becoming brighter and the days longer. My love for entertaining outside doesn't change, I just look for cool areas to set up my table and we often have our dinner later in the evenings.
This very simple table setting I created with a deep mustard coloured tablecloth to the floor and I laid some dark yellow satin ribbon across and down side of the table, I found this ribbon from one of my suppliers and he was clearing it out for $2.00 a 100 metre rolls, so of course I bought everything he had. The organza ribbon I already had and I created this simple little tree as the centre piece for my setting.
I used a single iron candle stick as the base and wrapped a hoop with the ribbon then tied about ten cut lengths of ribbon to top and then to the bottom hoop, just like a maypole. I like that the ribbon is sheer and it also moves beautifully in the breeze. I also added a couple of lengths of the yellow satin ribbon to the tree and glued a few little satin bows on. It would make a fantastic Christmas tree if you don't want a tree tree, not that I really want to start talking about Christmas yet!
How quickly they do grow up, this is my little nephew Eddie, he is now much older and I know I would never ever get that shirt on him again, he a real footie boy now and very cool. Eddie and my little niece Bella used to stay with us when they were little and I would seize the opportunity to dress them up and photograph when ever I could.
I would love to offer you all a glass of beautiful Australian wine or a cool drink while your here at my blog and join me on this garden bench surrounded by all these yummy yellow daisies and we can talk just about blogging.
Cheers! Happy Table scape Thursday
