Turn some people loose in flowering spaces and wonderful things can happen as did recently when a visiting friend came inside with arms loaded with what she had found in my yard.
Said she, “Do you have something I can put this in?” “Sure,” says I, “just look in the mudroom and see what you can find.” And so began the makings of a lovely table for that night’s dinner.
She used several different containers, ranging from pint sized sprinkler cans to small vases with interesting shape or color. Each was filled with the garden’s brilliant colors and greenery snipped from different bushes and trees.
By itself, this was a wonderful table, but we carried it one step further and set the table for dinner using white, floral design plates recently purchased from TJ Maxx, known around these parts as the Mother Ship.
The little girls chose multicolored napkins and, again, colors from the centerpiece were repeated or complemented. The girls were very excited to learn an easy napkin folding trick that creates a pocket for the silverware.
Come back tomorrow for the yummy swordfish salad that we had for dinner.
