Strawberry Summer

Welcome to Table Scape Thursday!
A special thank you to Susan at Between Naps of the Porch
for playing hostess to us today!
Today's theme...
 A strawberry inspired lunch for two!
I started off with my faithful and true silver chargers.
(OK, they are the only chargers I own!)
Added my mossy green
silver rimmed Pottery Barn metal plates...
(bought these on clearance too many years ago to count)
I finished the setting with my wide rimmed rose print bowls.
(I found these two several years ago at TJMaxx.)
I simply wrapped a spoon in a napkin and "dressed" it up with
a wide piece of bright green "Christmas" ribbon.
My plain wine and champagne stemware...
added the perfect amount of sparkle!
Plus provided a great way to serve my fresh strawberries!
Grandma Friend's mossy green tureen will hold
plenty of savory soup!
A petite white pitcher to hold some
yummy cream for our strawberries!
Every meal must end with a little chocolate...
Cupcake anyone!
Of course, topped with a fresh strawberry!

One for you and ...
one for me!
Thank you for joining me today.
You are special!

You are the only one I know who can make Red & Green look like summer instead of Christmas.

By the way, the strawberries look delicious!

Jeanette said...

Wow it looks beautiful. My beautiful niece and I are looking at blogs. She and I read the card you sent me together. Thank you my friend. We laughed and talked about Keelie and she is amazed at your talent as am I.

Your table is beautiful and delicious. I am especially taken with the beautiful rose bowls. They are exquisite. Thanks for sharing and I would love to end with a little chocolate.

Wendy said...

I agree with looks like summer! It is so pretty! I wish we could get fresh picked strawberries all year! You have a great talent for setting a beautiful tablescape :)

Kathy said...

Just love the green and the floral plates! Love strawberries - out of season here - but, there's peaches now :)
Hope you have a terrific weekend!

Very pretty green colour combined with the pink in the plates, looks terrific! Your photos have captured the "tasty-ness" of those strawberries and cupcakes perfectly! I'd love some!

Very nice tablescape. The plates with the roses are just charming. And the photos are each nicer than the other. Great work in tablescape as much as in photoshooting. That look so nice and summerly. Wish you a very nice weekend.
Greetings, Johanna

I seriously LOVE those rose bowls!

Very pretty table. Love those rose plates, and the cupcakes/strawberries look so refreshing.
Happy 4th.

Such interesting angles in your photographs. I am curious when charger plates became popular. I don't remember seeing them until fairly recently.

Kathy said...

Hello again! I just love those plates - I always appreciate it when you stop by -
Hope to see you Tuesday, July 6 for my Victoria Blog Party!
God Bless,
