Is being a plate-a-holic really a thing? Do they have a pill for that? Or, does it require months of therapy to get past the desire to place a box of dishes into your buggy at Wal-Mart when you see the exact color you’ve needed for months (and discounted for cheap)?
The yellow dinners are the plates in question. The color is maize…yellow, for short. (Wink.) White napkins with a yellow ruffle top the plate.
I decided to place the acorn/leaf plates on the square rather than my usual diamond.
The square alignment hints a repeat of the place mats. I realized last weekend that I haven’t used the acorn table-cloth this year.
The weather has been so nice. I still wish we could have some rain. But, the waiting game continues.
The temps are perfect for riding bikes, and the white pumpkin sits ready for a ride.
It’s turned creamier over time. It looks more like maize, a color similar to the glider cushions and the dinner plates.
I found another way to use the insulators. These two, you’ve seen before.
The extra insulator nests nicely inside a canning jar.
Wouldn’t it be pretty with colored water inside?
The smaller glasses add a light shade of maize. The small glass set came from Tuesday Morning, and the green stems are from Dollar Tree at a third the cost of the smaller glasses. (Isn’t Dollar Tree the best?)
Remember last week’s tablescape pictures had only green in those trees? Now, we’ve got a tinge of coloring. Yay, fall!
I set this table in the cool of the morning. You noticed the darkness of the pictures, right? And then the sun came over the patio and drove the roof shadow away.
Don’t you love the sunshine on cool fall days?
Final Note: I thought you might want to meet Ann-Margaret from Red Robbin. She has a crafting blog and Etsy site. Ann-Margaret asked me to tell y’all about her giveaway. Register here for her $150 JoAnn gift card giveaway, and take a look around at her fun projects while you’re there. Good luck!
Just wondering…does JoAnn sell plates? (Wink again!)
