Summer Daisy Table

Lazy daisy days of summer are here!
 There is nothing more cheerful than a pitcher full of daisies!
I matched up my daisies with some pale yellow paisley and white compliments.
          Just using some yellow tulle tied in a bow for napkin rings, I tucked in a few blooms.




What a simple table for summer!
I hope your summer is going well.

Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Fourth of July!
We are ready to celebrate Independence Day this weekend.  
 We have the table adorned with red, white and blue.
 The flags and sparklers are ready.
 I added a little fireworks inspired flair to the napkin rings and a little ribbon to the lanterns.

I attached all of the ribbon to the jars holding the sparklers and the lanterns - plus the paper embellishments to the napkin rings with removable glue dots.  This way the stars and stripes can be removed easily and the items can be used for another occasion.  Warning - it did take quire a few dots to get everything stuck down and I am not sure if they would hold in extreme heat.  We have been having some cooler, rainy weather here in Ohio.
 
So rainy that I have twice tried to do a table setting outside - got it all set up, then the clouds rolled in  fast and had to take everything in before I got any photos!
Hopefully all the rain came in the last two weeks and we will have a nice sunny weekend to celebrate our wonderful Nation's birthday.
I hope you have a fabulous fourth!
