Sunflower Tablescape

I promise this is the last you will see of sunflowers and tomatoes from me! Both are gone... I went to the farmers' market Saturday, and most had no more tomatoes for this year. 


I do love the  late summer, early fall colors of sunflowers and tomatoes.



The sunflower salad plates and platter are Provincial Sunflowers by Tabletops Unlimited. The yellow dinner plates are Pier 1 New Essentials in Butter.


Sunflower runner from Home Goods.

No more sunflowers! Now that's a sad thought. Your tablescape is so cheerful. I'd love to be dining here.

What a gorgeous tablescape--as far as I'm concerned, this is the best time of year, and you never have to apologize for sunflowers and tomatoes! I love the green glassware, and sunflower dishes and runner--all are beautiful. What a lovely place for dinner!

Pat,
You could post Sunflowers anyday...and I'd drop by for a visit! I L O V E Sunflowers!!! Your table runner is gorgeous and a perfect hue for the transition from summer to Autumn! Those Sunflower plates and bowls are adorable and blend nicely with your buttery yellow dinnerplates. That buttery yellow hue has been my favorite this year!!! I'll drop by for a visit again, soon just in case!
Fondly,
Pat

I really missed having a garden this year. (Except for my little chicken's garden) I didn't even plant any sunflowers! I already have a list of plants I want to get next year.

Miss Merry said...

Sunflowers are the perfect bridge from August to September! And the red of the tomatoes just accents the yellow beauty. Your table is adorable.

You had me at sunflowers and tomatoes! Gorgeous!

I wouldn't mind seeing sunflowers anytime you can find them. They bring such a casual happy feeling and look to a table or room. The table you set is really pretty and lively. We gathered our last few small tomatoes a few days ago and threw the plants away. This growing season has been pretty bad but we have next summer to look forward to. Have a great weekend, Pat!------ Shannon
