As in most parts of the country, we are having a warmer and dryer summer than usual. The lawns are brown, and the gardens need water. But nothing stops my yellow daisies. They even bloomed a few weeks early for me this year!
My daughters found an awesome pair of old wooden shutters when they were driving around during a free-cycle weekend in our community last summer. When I saw this table runner idea on Pinterest, I knew it would be perfect for a summertime tablescape.
Table runners do not always have to be fabric. Think outside of the box. Last fall I used a small wooden ladder in THIS tablescape.

I bought these bumble bee plates and napkin rings last year on an after season clearance. I actually found them at two different stores, but they were both 50% off!!
TipTo elevate these dessert plates I sat them on top of a thrift store candle holder.
The cutest little S & P's!
TipDon't you love the burlap place mats. I made these several years ago by cutting up a roll of tree and shrub wrap from my favorite Home Hardware store. I have used them over and over and over again!
I'm so glad you stopped by the back deck on this warm summer day. I hope you try using one of these easy tips today on a table at your home. Simple little accessories can make any meal time extra special!
