Tuesday Tidbits #178 Bring the Outdoors In

June Peonies

It’s been lovely watching the peonies come into bloom as the rhododendrons and lilacs fade. One sweet fragrance after another to savor.

The gardens keep producing gorgeous blooms. I believe it’s all the rain we have had and cooler temperatures. But with this rain comes indoor activities. So why not bring the outdoors in!

Add a Few Outdoor Touches to your Tablescape

Being forced to be inside because of the falling rain makes it easier for me to play with dishes. I decided to use the new melamine plates I purchased from the Pioneer Woman Collection at Walmart. The placemats were purchased from Walmart last summer and I was quite happy to see that they all worked well together. I have no idea where the napkins came from as they were sitting in the cupboard for a few years… but again I was thrilled that they matched too.

A casual mood sets a casual table for the dining room.
Chamomile adds a little freshness…
Impatiens blooms from the garden add a touch more color.

I enjoyed putting this table together. It is always a calming activity for me to play with my dishes.

Now perhaps you should give it a try. Set a pretty table for lunch or dinner. Nothing fancy… just use your imagination. Bring the garden indoors.

Thank you for the visit…
