Tropical With Kate Spade! (T)

Happy First Day of Summer!

I came across this wonderfully cheerful floral Kate Spade tablecloth (called Flowerbox) and had to use it for the first day of summer!

There are so many great colors in this tablecloth!

I went out to my gardens and snipped flowers.

My peonies are in full bloom and I was tickled to find this beautiful yellow daylily in bloom too!

Flamingos and hibiscus!

I snipped some of the orange begonias from my planters and a few fronds of my ferns.  

These dishes both came from Pier 1 last year and this year.  

I tried to capture the gold sparkles that this dish has but it doesn' show much but they does glisten in the sun!

The flamingo glasses are also from Pier 1 last year

Bamboo flatware and woven grass chargers- perfect for this tropical setting.

Again- Happy First Day of Summer!
