Among my favorite things in Maine are the flowers that color the landscape from late spring through early fall. I thrill to the ones that bloom in my yard and cannot resist bringing them in to be the stars of many an everyday table.
Rhododendrons in luscious shades of pink are the first to bloom and be shown off.
Always they make it easy to create a colorful centerpiece.
When a table is set around these beauties, it is understated so as not to take away from nature’s gifts.
The stunning pink tones of the blooms influence the choice of napkins and glasses. The simple pleated napkin fold is a favorite as are the old fashioned thumbprint goblets.
I like having flowers on the table, but when they are from my very own yard the pleasure is doubled and make table setting a real joy. It pleases me to think of all of you at the table.
