Since setting my kitchen table for the Table of Fish for a Day post, I wanted to set this table filled with fruit.
I left the lemon/lime beverage server on the side table after clearing away the table of fish.
I clipped a few iris blooms from out in the yard – and then headed to the Magnolia tree for branches.
There was one final peony, too.
Earlier in the day, our neighbor had brought over the basket of strawberries grown from friends at a nearby farm. Yum!
I got busy making pudding for the egg cups so a delicious, juicy strawberry could be placed on top. (Pudding was on my mind all last week, as you saw in Sunday’s post (Proof in the Pudding).
I realize three salad plates might seem a little extreme. But, adding the white plate helped give some brightness and life to the stack.
I have no fruit napkin rings, but the roosters were just the right colors for the table.
At the last minute, I remembered these fruit stems I found at a thrift store a couple of years ago. The blue glasses are from Dollar Tree.
A funny thing happened just after setting this table. Fun Son called and said he and his special female friend were headed our way for the afternoon and evening.
Perfect! We had help eating the pudding cups. 🙂
I have two important questions for you. Have you ever made a big to-do over pudding and pretended you made it from scratch? Do you find it hard to admit to using a boxed instant mix?
I tried to go down that road of pretense, but I couldn’t follow through with it. I found it impossible to tell a lie! Ha!
