Welcome Summer With Lemonlicious Tablescape

The fabulous Chloe from Celebrate and Decorate  has once again called upon some 20 bloggers to share their Welcome to Summer table inspiration. The sun is out, so I thought I would set an alfresco table. I am so ready for summer.

Our weather has been lovely.  My husband and myself have been working long hours in our yard.  Hubby is working on the pavers for our pool cabana.  I am trimming over grown plants for a fresh summer look.  I am happy to say I am almost finished.  Time to relax in the spa.

I set this  alfresco  table on our copper round table off the Breakfast room. This sitting  area makes for a lovely dinner or lunch.  Using a round table, it gives your guests a chance to really see each other and allow the conversations to flow..  This table does accommodate 8 people.

I am going lemon....lol  Green leaves placemats , followed by Citrus Lemon cork placemats.  I then added my bee plates, cabbage plates and finally  the Mary Lake-Thompson Botanical plates.

The yellow roses are in full bloom, perfect for this yellow tablescape.

The lovely lemon dish I found at Home Goods.  It is made in Italy.
I dressed the dish with roses, lemons, green leaves and some floral branches.
This is called Giotto- hand  made and hand decorated with fruits and flowers.

The Botanical plates are each different.  Lemons, sun flowers, olives and rosemary.
Summer is all about fun in the sun!  Warm weather, pool time and so much more.

It is always a pleasure to sit at one of your lovely tables and enjoy the views! Wishing you a most lovely day!

  6. That plate stack is so incredible!! It is so difficult to find the plates in such graduated sized to pull of a stack like this. I love the patterns on those salad plates, the olives, sunflowers, bee hive and lemons. All of these are such wonderful summery accents! Thank you once again for joining in another hop and sharing your creative talents!

  7. Oh Linda, lemon love, and everything looks luscious and summer perfect! I love the lemon tureen you found for the centerpiece and the mixed pattern salad plates are divine toppers for you lemon plate stack. What a beautiful setting you have to enjoy right off your breakfast room, and I agree, a large round table is wonderful for entertaining! I know you will enjoy a lot of al fresco meals in your beautiful California weather!

  8. Linda, a round table is perfect for conversations and I can only imagine myself sitting at your lovely copper table amongst all the lemons and roses. I adore all the lemons in your tablescape and plate stack, I need to check out those cork chargers. Yellow roses are my favorite and yours so close to your lovely table is perfect for outdoor dining. Your gardens are amazing and your hard work has paid off as the flowers are magical around your eating areas and pool area. I can't wait to see your cabana when it is finished.

  9. Linda, I love your pretty plates and your yellow roses are the perfect complement to your lemony theme! It’s a pleasure to be joining you for the hop this week! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
