Summer Island Paradise Tablescape

Summer Island Paradise......

I had so much fun putting this Tablescape together.  Inspired by the adorable "Olaf" in his Island Summer Hula Skirt.   My grand daughter Scarlett said I just had to get him, when we were at the Disney Store.

I used 2 placemats.  The woven one on the bottom with the touches of blue was from Home Goods this year.  The round thick braided placemat is from PB.  I used it for my Pirate theme tablescape that I did last Fall. 


I used some little pineapple shot glasses to present a little treat.  The candies mimic the colors in the tablescape..

I have used several pineapple theme items in this tablescape not only because they grow them in Hawaii but even the plates have a little "pineapple" compass printed on them. 

Please feel free to leave a comment.  I love reading them all!  Thanks for looking.

I will be posting this on Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.  I will be sharing this with Celebrate Your Story link party.  
I will be sharing with Dishing It & Digging It. 

Some of the sources of my items are T.J. Maxx, Pier One, Home Goods, Thanksgiving Point Emporium, Pottery Barn, Dollar Tree.   Some of the flowers from my yard, Disney Store, World Market.  Some of the items are from years ago..

Happy Birthday America.....

Such a wonderful Birthday to celebrate.  Over the last year I have been watching a show on AMC called TURN Washington's Spies.  I love this show.  It really brings home to my heart what the American Patriot's went through to create this great nation. 

You know how you have certain ideas, accomplishments, and desires in your mind and heart that you want to achieve.  A "Bucket List" of sorts.   One of mine was always to see the Statue of Liberty.  It was such a thrill for us to leave New York harbor on a boat and actually go see this beautiful statue.  So with this theme in mind I created my 4th of July Tablescape.  
If you click on a photo it will enlarge for a better view.  .

I really love giving "Christmas" party cracker poppers in many of my parties.  I was so excited about the 4th of July, I am giving 2 to each guest!  They are such a fun party favor, with their paper crowns, jokes, puzzles, and a prize.

                                  Such fun and colorful corn chips from World Market.

I have to tell you a funny story.  I bought the placemats a few years ago at a Warehouse sale of P.B. & Williams Sonoma.  They had a huge stack of boxes.  It said placemats $2.00 each box.  They made you believe there was one in each box.  So I bought 4 boxes.  Well when I got home, there were 20 placemats in each box!  So I had 80 place mats.  I kept 20 of them and sold the rest on Ebay.  I sure wish I had bought more boxes!!!

Ribbon candy for the 4th of July?  A great treat from Hammond's Candy.  Located in Colorado.  Besides being red, white, and blue.  They are as American as apple pie, as that is the their flavor.
