I'm surrounded by yellow this week

The colour yellow seems to be following me this week, all the trees are turning yellow, I'm designing the yellow brick road and all the sets for the Wizard of Oz, as well as creating all the Munchkins costumes and the gorgeous good witch Glinda costume which is dazzling away in my sun room. So I thought I would show a yellow table setting this week. I styled this setting a couple of years ago for my (one day) book and I had such fun creating it, complete with little bumble bees, sugared fruit and a perfect Autumn day on my friends beautiful veranda in Moss Vale.

My son Thomas cooked these delicous little pastries (above right) with fresh black berries picked from our garden.

I also couldn't resist adding these images that I took on a field of yellow daisies with these fantastic young girls wearing my vintage yellow gowns, it's the crazy mind of a stylist, I can't help myself.


I hope you all have a lovely Easter - We will be working on the sets of the Wizard of Oz, working on a fundraising second hand market stall on Easter Saturday at the local markets in Bowral, (setting up at 6am - yuk), spending Easter Sunday with my family who are visiting and just not really doing that much at all ....... ha ha - hopefully Monday I can have a little rest..
Don't forget to visit Susan from Between Naps on the Porch for many more wonderful table settings for Tablescape Thursday. Susan has a gorgeous table setting especially for Easter
