Summer Fun

nana2010_gwAugust 25, 2013

I planned to post this table to co-inside with Kathleen's 'Summer Fun Challenge'.
But I had to leave to care for my little great nieces before I completed it.
Anyway..I hope you like it. From 2013-08-25 (by Eye-Fi)

I found the light house plates at a yard sale last year.
The light house is from a co-op store. I found the lanterns yesterday at a thrift store.
I was hoping to find red lanterns but I think these work. From 2013-08-25 (by Eye-Fi) From 2013-08-25 (by Eye-Fi) From 2013-08-25 (by Eye-Fi) From 2013-08-25 (by Eye-Fi)

I don't know about you but I am not ready for summer to end.

Nice plates!

I have to say, I especially like the chargers.
You did a nice job with the "pop of color" found in the red portion of the dishes' lighthouses, the knob on the top of the centerpiece lighthouse, and the napkins. Looks great.

Thanks, Jeanne and OA.
The table is simple but it says "summer" to me.

Leave it to you to find those wonderful Lighthouse plates for a table. :o) That's a delightful table setting.

I'm going to have to say, I will be thrilled when summer ends....sick of HOT HOT HOT days. And since our summer lasts till Halloween, I've got plenty more of them coming. sigh. But for all my 'cold weather friends', I am sorry your summer ends too fast.

hugs, Karen

Love the plates and the seaside theme! Looks very inviting and COOL! Something that we've not seen around here in a while.

This is perfectly beachy!
Those plates are great and I love the mix of primary colors.
You found some real deals!
The sea shells are the perfect finishing touch on your sandy colored tablecloth.
Super scape - Seashells by the seashore!

I'm already getting a bit verklempt that it is already Labor Day weekend and summer is ending.
I'm OK with Fall and actually love fall decorating, just not chilly weather!

Nana, your lighthouse plates and chargers are the bomb with the lighthouse cp. Love all the shells, lanters and the napkins are perfect on this table. I have some shells DGD brought me so I need to get a table set with them before she asks about them.
