Today I'm participating with a group of Instagram friends who love to set pretty tables maybe even more than me!  We're sharing our Summer Tablescape ideas, and I thought I'd share outdoor Summer table here with you as well.  If you're on Instagram be sure to check out my latest post and tap on the tags of each participant to see their tables too, this is a group of table setting pros and you're sure to gather lots of pretty new ideas!  Everyone should have their posts up by mid-morning, so check back if you're reading this post before all of their posts are live on Instagram.

Does anyone else start singing the lyrics of "Bicycle Built for Two" any time they see a daisy or read the word?  No other flower says "Summer" to me like a daisy, and with several thick bunches blooming in my flowerbeds I knew that they would be the perfect centerpiece to build my table around.  

On top of having daisies readily available, I had the perfect daisy dishes to use!  I remember eating off of these "Poppytrail" daisy dishes growing up as a young girl, my Mom has had a set for years.  She cleaned them all out a while back and I was tasked to sell them for her, but I couldn't quite bring myself to do it yet so they've been hanging out in my attic.  I've pulled them out a few times to use for Mother's Day and a few other occasions, they're such a punch of nostalgia!

She had some amazing serving pieces with the set too, like these salad tongs, a couple of pedestal dishes, and the cutest cream, sugar, and salt and pepper shakers.  

I used some of the cups and saucers to do little individual bouquets at each place setting... the cutest!

(Dress is from last year and no longer available, sorry!  Similar style hereExact scarf here and more of my picks all under $5 each here.)

I can't even handle that adorable sugar bowl back there...

My Pink Lemonade Pie is the perfect, easiest Summer dessert.  Find the recipe here, although this time I just used regular lemonade instead of pink and added the juice of a medium lemon in the mix as well... it was extra delicious!  

This table was so fun to put together, I fell in love with this color combo!  I assembled it a few days ago, right before Father's Day.  I intended for us to enjoy our lunch outdoors but it was so incredibly hot and windy in Oklahoma that day, we moved it inside (and I did change up a few elements in the process to make it a little more "manly", ha!).  

Regardless of what kind of outdoor set up you have, I encourage you to move a meal or dessert outside sometime...  if the weather cooperates it's such a nice change of pace! 

Be sure to hop over to Instagram today and check out all of my friends' beautiful Summer tables, too!

  4. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: or WhatsApp him +15068001647 blog: you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS
