Welcome to a hot, sunny, summer day in West Texas.
Sunflowers, sun rays, sun colored tablecloth, amber colored glasses with punches of black.
All with a pop of red!
Roosters guarding the napkin lest the sun rays pop in and dance away with them.
Dinner and salad plate.
Notice the woven red designs on the French tablecloth. The black flatware was chosen to carry the black from the plates onto the table.
With the salad plate removed, here is the larger rooster design which reminds me of Toile du Juoy.
A mix of silver-plated spreaders sits atop the saucer come bread plate. I spy a woven sunflower in the tablecloth.
The Chanticleer pitcher makes yet another appearance on this warm evening.
Dashing salt and peppers purchased in Albany, Texas.
Another dashing set to crow out their shakes of salt and pepper.
Whitehall amber tumblers and golden hued wine goblets fit so perfectly with the setting.
Some lemons and pearl onions scattered beneath the glorious sunflowers remind somehow of Provence...
Your eyes aren't playing tricks I promise... I changed the candle holders from these to the black wrought iron ones you'll see here too.
Mr. Sam provided the sunflowers and these gorgeous 'things' from Kenya.
I hope you'll take a seat and join us.. Dinner is a Pork tenderloin with sage, fluffy mashed potatoes, asparagus sprinkled with lemon juice and a fresh green salad with a lemon vinaigrette.
