Watermelon for summer

I had planned to set the table for the first day of summer but we were busy that I barely set it today. I am linking up with The Tablescaper for her weekly party called Seasonal Sundays.
Join me each Sunday for my weekly party

The inspiration was the napkin ring which was found sometime last year on clearance at Bed, Bath and Beyond. Then I found the votive holder at the Goodwill and finally the place mats at Tuesday Morning.  The basket was the base of my gift from my friend Ruby.  She gave several tablescaping goodies and have been  using something new each week.

Here is a close up of the place mat. I like the ant carrying the watermelon.

I layered two napkins.
Here is another view to see the napkin ring.
The designated salt and pepper shakers for my dad.  I use what I think are salt cellars to hold the teaspoons.

In order not to  clutter the table, I put the pitchers and bowls on the china cabinet.

I hope you are all having a great weekend.


  1. Cute table! I love your checked Fiesta and napkin rings-enjoy:@)

  2. What a fun table! I love watermelon. It just says *summer* to me! Have a great week!

  3. Can't wait to get some juicy watermelon this summer! Your green plate makes the perfect "rind" for the dishes and those placemats are adorable with the tiny ant and the giant slice of melon! Have a wonderful day! Linda

  4. Love your table and all of it's goodies. Great placemats. Love the doubled napkins. Thank you for being a part of Seasonal Sundays. So sorry to be so late to come by to visit, but I've been away.
