I realize that Summer isn’t officially here yet, but in my neck of the woods, Summer Vacation has arrived! Even Blogland seems to be inundated with Summer-related posts … so why not a rustic Summer Flower Power-themed tablescape this week? A special friend gave me these little sunflower plates at the very end of last summer, but with The Big Event last Fall, I just never got a chance to show them to you. This is also that friend’s birthday week, and she’s been on my mind, so it seems like the perfect time to enjoy a little flower power!
Cheery vintage floral damask napkins…
You expected sphagnum moss? It would have had a totally different look — and feel!
Seagrass placemat … Gibson “Claremont” dinner plate (with its “sunrays” design) … unmarked rope-trimmed salad plate (headed to another friend — I haven’t forgotten!) … and a flower to make me smile.
Mikasa “Italian Countryside” flatware to complement the “sunrays”…
And family and friends tumblers…
Perfect for a casual Summertime meal, don’t you think?
I wish you were here to join me!

Has Summertime arrived at your house? Do you plant sunflowers? Do they have the power to make you smile?
The power of flowers … and friendship
“Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art… It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things that give value to survival.” ~C.S. Lewis
I’m so glad you stopped today, my friends! Have a wonderful rest of the week … and I hope to see you again soon!
I’ll be joining Cuisine Kathleen for Let’s Dish. If you like tablescaping, you’ll want to join me. Those ladies know how to host a party!
