Summer Arrives ~Whoa, that’s a lot of Color!

Today summer officially arrived and it was a beautiful day in the neighborhood!

And so it my table!

Some purple hydrangea for the centerpiece.

The cloth is called Elizabeth Exotique by Duralee.  It is a remnant I got at the outlet.

And it has A LOT of colors!

The little casseroles are a dark purple, not black!

I used a yellow plate, red charger and green napkin.
