Farewell To Summer Tablescape Challenge

 
Kathleen at Cuisine Kathleen is having an end of summer tablescape challenge. I am still at  my daughter Rochelle's house but I did not want to miss a challenge. I decided to just create a table for one in the backyard, since both my time and tableware items here are very limited here. My granddaughter Rea is in the hospital right now so I am taking care of the other girls.
 

Its a very simple table and I decided to mix summer and fall colors to create a transition of the seasons. The napkin is actually brown and not black like it shows.
 
I started with a white crisp tablecloth, actually a new unused shower curtain I found in the utility room cabinet, while searching for a tablecloth.

I just bought the placemat at TJ Maxx a few days ago. I love the deep orange color and I like that it is square rather than rectangular, so I can use it on our round kitchen table in Natchez or on our square table in Cape Coral.
 The lake speaks summer to me and the grass is still really green and it has lately been very hot here in Florida. I do not foresee Fall in the near future yet.
 I just found the bumble bee in the kitchen drawer and I thought it would be fun to add it on the plate. I bought these plates a long time ago from Ross when I still lived in FL, one of the few everyday dinnerware set I left here when I moved.

 I could not even find a match to light the candles.
 I just borrowed the vase with a daisy from the fireplace mantel and I added another polka dotted orange vase I found in the kitchen cabinet, and stuck 3 more faux daisies in it.


And there it is! Looks like the other daisy I had on the plate have flown away. Thank you so much for hosting this table challenge, Kathleen. I hope I get a chance to visit the other participants. I will certainly try, especially because I have missed so many of you.
Thanks for your visits and comments!
