Mid Summer Tomatoes


I have tomatoes coming out of my ears. I am glad to share with family and friends but they are ever so lovely to display in a bowl.

I pulled out a new table topper and tried it with a bowl of maters in the kitchen but it just clashed with some of my things in here now.





So I moved the table cloth and maters to the dining room. They really go with my red chairs.



I think this table vignette will carry me through the end of summer.




Okay, I promise to embrace summer heat and all. I will head to my inlaws pool. Thank goodness they live very close to us.


Happy Summer!!

Beautiful! i also notice that when fresh fruit or veggies are put on display, they get asked for all the time!

I love that bowl is it yellow ware?Nice tablescape.

A beautiful simple table -- we use lemons and limes and apples and oranges as centerpieces -- why not tomatoes! Great idea!

H said...

How lovely to have a table with fresh fruit, but I don't like this 'mid summer' talk! It feels like it's hardly started yet!!

Theresa said...

Nothing like a homegrown tomato! Enjoy!

A lovely summer table top and I am green, I mean red with envy over your tomatoes! All I have so far is tall plants and flowers...by the time we get tomatoes here in Northern Wisconsin, I have to worry about frosty nights...I will visit your bowl often!

Cute and perky centerpiece! We love tomatoes at our house so this would be eaten up quickly!

ABSOLUTELY LOVE YOUR RED CHAIRS! I think I might now paint a couple of mind red! (which is my favorite color!)
Best,

Becca said...

What a great vignette !! I love the tray and bowl of fresh maters !! The angled tablecloth is the perfect compliment to it, as well. Hope you had fun lounging by the pool !!

Entertaining Women said...

A perfect summer vignette. Thank you for sharing your glorious tomatoes and your lovely design. Cherry Kay

Jenny said...

Love your vignette. Hope if you keep it the same all summer you don't get those little annoying gnats that seem to congregate around spoiling tomatoes.

Oh...

Oh?

You mean you'll change out the tomatoes? Okay. Gosh, I'm turning red here.

But before I slink out in embarrassment, can I just tell you that you are awfully creative at tablescapes! Love all the elements and textures you've captured in yours.

Thanks for the lovely share this week.

A+

PS. I have that same bowl!
