Rather than setting the table with red, white and blue decor this summer,
I chose to go citrus, that sunny yellow of lemons.
When I decorated my sunroom with lemons and limes,
I thought I would carry that theme to the dining room table.
I started out with a vintage cake plate and inverted it.
The base of the cake plate is a cut “pineapplesque” design and it is hollow,
so you are able to fill it with water and place flowers in it like a vase!
The surface of the cake plate is now acting as a base for the lemons and daisies.
I love lemons and daisies together. They say, Fun!
Since the cake plate has a pineapple design, I thought I would add the pineapple embroidered
napkins to the place setting. Being that this is a very casual tablescape,
I tucked the silverware into the napkin, for that casual feel.
Lemon themed melamine plates by Pottery Barn.
I used a pair of some of my favorite non-crystal pineapple candlesticks
to add to the tablescape that gave it more of a casual feel.

The place card holder was purchased in sets of 4 many years ago from Tuesday Morning.
I purchased them to use for my son’s wedding that had a garden theme.
These place cards held the table numbers.
Hope everyone experienced a wonderful and safe 4th!
