Refreshing Summer Table

It's such a hot and humid day, I chose to stay in this afternoon and set a table for all who may need a refreshment when they come in out of the heat.
This bright lime green and pink table setting was inspired by cans of sparkling water when I picked up some flowers at Trader Joe's.

Just as the plates say - setting this table helped me "chill out" after working outside this morning.

And a wonderful flavored sparkling water will hit the spot.  I gave up drinking pop (yes, I am from Ohio!) or soda, as most know it, about a year ago.  So flavored waters are a nice treat now and then.

I haven't bought any popsicles in a long time!!  But I am thinking I may try making some fruit popsicles this week.
I hope you find a way to stay cool in this summer heat.

Thanks for stopping by and getting a dose of refreshment!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.


  1. Hi Ann! Your table is so adorable. The popsicle plates really make it! Jane

  2. Ann, this is such a cheerful table, it will definitely banish the heat! Bright colors say summer fun like nothing else. I love all the details - the straws, the fruit in the drinks, the way you tied the napkins.

  5. Love, love, LOVE this setting!!!!!! I featured these same popsicle plates on the show yesterday morning as an example of a fun summertime look! While I've not yet used them in a tablescape, I know I'm going to get some mileage out of them! I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw they were only $1 each!!! I scooped up all they had (6) and hope to find a few more. I absolutely adore how you chose the green and white polka dots and the yellow and white plaid to pair up with them! Those contrasting colors bring out all the juicy goodness of the popsicles! Nailed it, girl! 100% NAILED IT!!!!!!!! Have a great weekend!
