Mosaic Monday - Summer Table Setting

I promise this will be the last of my
pictures from Canada Blooms.
But, I just had to show you these table settings
since, the outdoor entertaining season is starting.


Image relaxing on the patio with the candle light twinkling
on the stemware and the fragrance of flowers from the garden.

Mary from Little Red House hosts Mosaic Monday,
please stop by and view the beautiful mosaics.

Thank you for visiting and have a great day!

p.s. I am have problems with blogger this morning and I hope this post is not published more then once.
 I have lost it three times already.

Rettabug said...

And I just clicked on "comments" & THREE windows opened up!!! What's up with that???

Thanks for the info on the tablerunner. I did look at the pattern & I understand how its made~~easy~peasy~~. I can't seem to decide on what fabrics I want to use for it. I'm thinking a darker & more solid fabric would look best for the borders to sort of stop the eye.

From what I can see, that is how you did yours. I never thought of flowers for the middle...I like that effect!

I would LOVE to see another photos of yours. I need all the inspiration I can get these days.

Love your pretty tablesetting with your Villeroy and Boch dishes! So nice and fresh looking!
Here's hoping we get some Spring flowers soon! Still chilly here in NY!
(I found you over at Retta's , :) )

I'm imagining.....
And I don't get tired of the Canada Blooms photos, as I'd thought I'd be there this year, but missed out. It's a very welcome glimpse at what I missed.

I love outdoor dining when the weather is nice. Sometimes I'll just take a candle outside and just sit and have a glass of wine with hubby. Sometimes though, it's just breezy enough here that my candles blow out. Love the table settings. My favorite outdoor things are the cool tones, blues, greens, purple...it's so hot here, that I don't want warm colors. :-)

Hello Jen - I for one am not at all tired of your "Canada Bloom" posts! I just noticed on Carol's blog that you mentioned you had an older Mac. I just showed my son your postcard template post last night and asked him how to find the template but we couldn't find it. I'm wondering if you would mind pointing me in the right direction - thanks so much!

Hi Jen
Yes, bring on the garden and tea parties now that spring is here.
It was beautiful out today and we started our front yard clean up.

Vee said...

Don't worry about ever sharing these lovely images. Oh have I ever been having troubles with blogger lately. Now it's got me so bamboozled that I'm sharing great things I've learned and it's nothing but malarkey. All this to say that I empathize completely.

I can't wait to have dinner outdoors again! Beautiful table setting. Canada Blooms must a wonderful event!

What a beautiful mosaic. I love that blue dinnerware. So pretty. I have had trouble with picasa and blogger as well. I threw out Picasa for a while. Will upload it again one of these days and see if it works properly now.

Hello Jen, thanks for stopping by. Your table setting is beautiful. My favorite cobalt blue glasses. Used to have my grandmother's but gave them to my brother to spread around the pretties. Rain, rain, rain, here is Kentucky.

Sheila said...

Jen - thanks so much for your quick reply. I will have to think about upgrading but for the moment google offered a free Picasa upgrade and so I just did that tonight. It will keep me busy for awhile. It takes one whole group of photos and you can create a mosaic in seconds - automatically. I'm having so much Thanks again for your help. I always enjoy visiting your blog.
