Oops! I've already gone off on a tangent and I am just introducing my post!! Summer! With birds and bees and butterflies!
I must have changed this table up 5 or six times - it started out with much more off white in it - looking a little more summery. But I didn't really like it!
I liked the darker rattan chargers with these plates, it seemed to make the colors pop off a little more than the off white.
My little birds have all left their nests, and even though they say there is a shortage of bees this year, we seem to have our share around here.
I have also noticed many more butterflies this year than I have in past years.
I had bought these turquoise and yellow dinner plates months before and not even thinking about them when I purchased the bee plates. Then as I was digging through my cabinet, I realized that they were a good combination together.
And of course with a name that includes Plaid and Paisley, you just had to know that I would mix my paisley napkins with my checked napkins!
and if you look real close you will notice that the end place settings do not have the paisley napkins- apparently I only bought 4 - either that or I can't find the other 4.
I will have to go back to some of my previous posts to see if I ever had more than 4!
They also don't have any flatware - I know I only bought service for 4 because that was just a couple of weeks ago! I will hopefully add another set on my next trip to Ikea. So if you are stopping over for dinner -be sure not to sit at the head of the table - you won't get any utensils or the cute napkin combo!
I hope your summer is going well, and that you are not bothered by allergies like my poor dog!
Thanks for stopping by!
