Waverly Valley Plaid & Nantucket Basket

Today's tablescape was inspired by the sunny plaid that is used in my son's bedroom. I began with extra valances of Waverly's Valley Plaid used as table runners. The blue and yellow is so cheery!
I then built a centerpiece using a salad plate, tea cup placed upside down, a bread plate and a creamer in my everyday pattern, Wedgwood's Nantucket Basket. I hope I didn't give my son any ideas about using my china to build towers!
Into the creamer I placed some grocery store flowers of yellow daisies and lime green mums, along with a yellow zinnia or two from the containers on the patio.

A salad plate is arranged on top of a dinner plate, along with a bread plate for the place setting.

The flatware is my everyday stainless, Oneida Easton. The iced tea stems are just simple, clear glasses I picked up from Wal-Mart. The linen napkins, wedding presents, are bordered with a pretty swiss dot pattern.

All in all, a summery tablescape for these very hot days! How does Imperial Chicken, alongside salad with tomatoes and cucumbers from the garden, and garlic cheese biscuits sound?

Please join Susan for Tablescape Thursday to see lots of creative table settings!
